5 Questions With Al Jefferson

Former Celtics big man and current Jazz center Al Jefferson spoke with the media prior to Wednesday’s game between the C’s and Jazz.  Here is what the Prentiss High School product, who is averaging 15.3 points and 11.5 rebounds per game this season had to say.

1. You are playing in the last year of your deal.  Have they [the Jazz] talked to you at all about an extension?

Jefferson: No we haven’t had no conversation.  I think its all about going out there and taking care of business.  If I take care of my business on the court everything will take care of business off the court.  So, I’m not really worried about it.

2. Where do you want to be?

Jefferson: I want to be in the NBA. (laughs).  That’s the blessing.  When no teams want me that’s when I need to start learning.  I want to be a Utah Jazz to be honest with you.  I’d love to stay in Utah.  They do things the right way, kind of remind me of Boston, first class, they do everything the right way.  They got to do what’s best for the team and I got to do what’s best for my family.  But right now it’s all about winning and getting back to the playoffs.

3. Would you like to be a Celtic again?

Jefferson:  (Laughs). Well this is my first home.  This will always be my home away from home.  Danny Ainge gave me a chance when no one else did.  So, if that situation were to happen I would love to do that again.  But like I said right now it’s all about taking care of business and finishing out the season right.

4. What did you take away from the playoffs?

Jefferson: Well it’s a totally different ball game, totally different ball game in the playoffs.  Especially going against a San Antonio team.  You got to be ready to play.  I think the referees see things a lot different, just everything is different, and you got to be prepared for it.

5. Was your time in Boston unique?

Jefferson: Yes it was unique.  And Utah, being in Utah has kind of reminded me of Boston.  They want to win.  The front office in Utah proved that this summer getting us the pieces that I think can get to the next level, and it’s kind of exactly like Boston, I’m sure Danny is thinking 4-5 years from now, that’s just how they are.  So I experienced it again when I went to Utah, these two teams are on the same page.

    loved Big Al giving Uncle Jeff props after that dunk… he's a class act. I'd love to see him back in Boston if the price is right
