Rambis better give Jonny at least 15 shots, and Brewer no more than 5. These are going to be a tough couple of games, it remains to be seen though if Jefferson is really hurting us rather than helping us, he's at least a step slow out there, look at how much is rebounding pruduction has gone down. Rambis better not start Gomes at the 4 too, just throw Hollins and Jawai in there, let them figure it out while Flynn scores the majority of the points, Flynn has no choice, who else on this team can score consistently right now? Not even Jefferson can, let Flynn take the reins and stop with the Triangle bull, the only times in NBA history where it's been successful have been with players like Kobe, Micheal, Pippen, and Shaq.

Oh nuts! I'm going to miss the next 70 games...avoid them at all cost.

They've already won a game...don't expect them to win any more, with or without Jefferson!

he will not be missed, they can lose with or without him. It makes little difference.

wait until jefferson has a good game or two an then trade him.
utah has new yorks pick.
new jersey has a future golden st first.
the clippers have a wolves pick which is top 10 protected the next two drafts and unprotected after that.

trade expiring contracts to a team that thinks they have a shot at a big time free agent.
cardinal and blount to bulls for salmons and hinrich.

and yes, packers suck
