SALT LAKE CITY ó Check out Utah Jazz center Al Jeffersonís reaction to beating the Lakers on Friday night, and realize how much he wanted this one Ö

ďI havenít beaten the Lakers in probably six years, since I left Boston, and I havenít been in a playoff game in six years and it felt like a playoff game. Every possession counted. Kobe Bryant being who he is, and we were down, we fought back, we didnít give up. We won against all odds. It was just amazing, man. Iím overwhelmed. Itís never been like this before, and to be a part of this. It just meant a lot to me.Ē

Jefferson was acquired by the Jazz in its big move to compete this season after saying bye to Carlos Boozer. Jefferson had 20 points and eight rebounds in the Jazz victory, but I wasnít real impressed by his defense most of the game.

JB, how is this even threadworthy?

A guy is happy he won a game against a team he hasn't won against in a really long time.

That's news worthy?

Good for him. He's swimming in a figurative Scrooge McDuck money pool... of happiness.

04/05 Celtics, his rookie year won 45 games, was the best team he's been on

Ahhh, alright. I thought he might have had an alright year with them, but still nothing special. He's gotta be feeling great being on such a good team in Utah.

Who gets to choose whats deemed acceptable or newsworthy? This is something I didnt know, you guys pass it off as something every player would feel after defeating a team he hasnt in forever but not alot guys care that much about the game. Its good to know he does

I'm not hating on JB, he makes a **** ton of good discussion.

I just don't see how a thread on Al Jefferson being happy has a point.

It's a big deal because he's been a good player on a crappy team for basically his whole career. Any recognition in the past came with a backhanded "on a bad team": he's putting up great numbers... on a bad team, he looks like an allstar... on a bad team.

True, the Wolves ended up just wanting to move him, but just as much if not more Al silently wanted to be moved. Guys who truly love the game can only take losing so much.

Plus, discussion of Al Jefferson brings up such questions as: Is this the year that the Jazz make it to the finals? Is he the x-factor or was Boozer better? Can Sloan teach him to hold his own on defense or will he eventually be exploited by Phil Jackson's basketball acumen?

Well, you asked the question, so what do you think?

I dont think this team has enough defense to make the finals, personally.

i have no problem with this thread, but if theres going to be this thread, then why the **** do mods close some threads that are far more thread worthy then this **** and a mod gets to keep this up.

Anyone else care to answer this poster's question?

Thread worthy or not i'm just happy that the guy cares that much about the game, i wasn't sure if he really loves the game and winning, but this bodes well for the Jazz and him, so i'm pretty happy about this commentary.

He looks better the longer the season goes. I hope he get's acclimated until the alstar break that would be important. The defense still looks suspect, hope they can get some consistency there.

So far the season looks good for me Spurs starting good and Jazz looking good despite many new faces and a missing Okur (even though i would like a better defensive big).

That's exactly the way I saw it. It's nice to see him show some passion toward the game.

Again how do you make the distinction? Just about every piece of writing in the main forum pertains to a player of a single team, that doesnt mean every bit gos to his team. I for one am happy he posted this here because I sure as hell aint going in the Jazz forum.

I can identify with that it feels good to win every now and then.

If Big Al was still on your team, you'd probably having 40 posts in this thread alone sir.

Very emotional. He sounds like LeBron left his team or something.
