yeah, me too. hate the way he plays, hate his attitude. he's not as good as he thinks. nice series, btw. lol.
as for the millsap/Jefferson discussion, I don't see Utah letting millsap go. they have favors and kanter, who are really both cs (or pf/c at best), and millsap is a true 4 (albeit a bit undersized). plus, he's a fan and organization favorite. I see them offering him the full 5 years at a number that makes it total out to more than the max from another team (over 4 years). I don't see them keeping Jefferson, though. that doesn't rule out a s&t, though, which puts several teams in play.
btw, I was joking: I don't see Jefferson as a great fit in Houston. millsap would be better, but I don't see if happening. josh smith should be a target of theirs (after howard and paul, obviously). he'd fit in with what they do, save for the three point shooting, and Atlanta may be tired enough of him to let him walk for nothing (though, again, s&t there might make some sense).
bigger picture: if howard and paul stay put, there could be a lot of sadness for all these cap space hoarding teams. many of the teams who own bird rights to the top FAs aren't capped out, and thus have to consider the logic of letting an asset walk versus slightly overpaying him.
