Dear Santa, I Want an Extension For Paul Millsap and the Jazz to Trade Boozer

Dustin JohnsonCorrespondent IDecember 21, 2008

Dear Santa,

This year for Christmas I only want two things as a Jazz fan. First and foremost please help the Jazz to get an extension signed by Paul Millsap. And second how about a big trade involving Carlos Boozer? That's not beyond your power is it? With the economy the way it has been maybe you could employee a couple of out work elves to get this done.

Santa, here is my reasoning why you should bring this for Christmas. Paul has been a very good boy this year. He has 15 double doubles in row now. 15 out of 16 games started that he did that. As a starter this year he is averaging 18.5 points per game and 11.5 rebounds per game. Paul has gone from super-sub to one of the best power forwards in the game. 

What is the poll on the Utah Jazz's website right now? Well it asks, "Is Paul Millsap an All-Star?" Let me answer that for you Santa, YES! Of Course he is. Paul is a man among men. He never takes a game off, a quarter off, a minute off, or even a single play off. He is made of one hundred percent pure heart and hustle just the way Coach Jerry Sloan likes 'em made.

Santa, I am scared that this summer every team in the league that can, will be throwing money at Paul (who's the money man now Memo). So I come to my second Christmas wish. Please trade Boozer, it would give us something in return and free up the cash to resign Paul. We all now know that Carlos is going to opt out at the end of the year anyway.

Now Santa let me ask you given the choice of Salt Lake or Miami where would you want to spend the winter months? Oh wait you hang in the North Pole, don't answer. I'm thinking Carlos and his wife are gonna be looking at South Beach and thinking why not.

So that being said Santa please help the Jazz get something in return instead of just possibly watching both all-star power forwards walk out the front door of the ESA without looking back next summer.

Send an elf over to Kevin O'Conners house to whisper possible deals in his ear. Tell your elf to be imaginative. Maybe suggest something like C Booz for Andrew Bynum, Trevor Ariza, and a couple of Laker girls. Or maybe send him to Atlanta for Al Horford, Marvin Williams, a case of Coke, and a crate of Peaches.

Anyway thanks for reading this Santa and please remember my Christmas wishes.
