For the first three years of his career, Paul Millsap played the journeyman role of giving the Jazz valuable minutes off the bench in resting Carlos Boozer, and when Boozer was injured for much of the 2009-10 season, Millsap came in and showed the NBA what he could do as a full time starter.
Last season the Jazz let Boozer go off to the Chicago Bulls in free agency and brought in Al Jefferson from Minnesota. Jefferson was expected to replace the 20 points and 10 boards a night that Boozer previously brought with a bonus potential of better defense.
Both players have played well throughout their relatively short careers so far, but combining the two last seasons enabled both players to feed off one another and take their games to another level. This two headed monster in the paint gives Jazz fans a lot of hope and excitement for the future.
The question is: which player is better?
