Keys to the Game:
Transition: Rumors have leaked that the Jazz nixed an offer from the Mavs last week that would have sent Drew Gooden, Shawne Williams and Kris Humphries to the Jazz for Carlos Boozer. I think there’s no hope for Boozer staying in Salt Lake City, and it’s possible he’ll be moved before the trade deadline. However, it is interesting to note that the Cavs lost Boozer and replaced him with Gooden, and now we learn the Mavs tried to swap the former Cavaliers.
Get your AK’s out: I think it’s obvious that the guy the Jazz want to move is Andrei Kirilenko, whose contract runs through 2011. He’s a guy that has been on Cavs’ fans radars and count me among those who would welcome a trade for AK-47. He has his flaws (he’s redundant with AV, he’s not an elite offensive player, his mental makeup is questionable), but I think his game would translate nicely and he would actually flourish playing next to LeBron and Shaq. His game reminds me of Delonte’s in that he’s a jack of all trades, master of none sort of player. And with the Cavs’ philosophy centered around defense, Kirilenko is a great player to add to the starting mix. His game has declined a bit, but he’s young and maybe a change of scenery would help in Cleveland. I will be keeping my eye on him tonight.
