I'm not saying Al isn't one of the best centers in the league, but even you have to admit we play a different kind of basketball without him on the floor: (ball)movement, fast breaks and defense. We have to wait and see what Al's impact is going to be exactly, but I doubt his return is going to make a huge difference (in the outcomes of the games).
He's top 5 on any website ,magazine,or show. Ball movement,and fast breaks doesn't pertain to Biz, so I don't see how his presence would equal that to a Al jeffersons .Yes defense may take a hit but everything else increases.
We are 3-3 without a top 5 center , plus we have competed in all our games. I don't understand how ppl can truly discredit Al like he's not a top tier player , and that his presence alone makes everything easier on the whole team. Some of you are speaking as if we are 3-3 with Al ,forgetting that he's a extra player who haven't played yet? Not counting Al is like not crediting what Tyson,Howard,Noah, and Brook Lopez are to their teams . 3 out of the 4 teams are stuggling with their centers , now we can only imagine what it would look like without. Also our next 3 games look very winnable ,so I would advised those rooting for a top pick to not look at the box scores for this upcoming week.
Al isn't a 20 and 10 guy anymore and we weren't competitive against NO.
