Personally, I hate the trade deadline. All of the speculation, the trade rumors, the figurative throwing of Blazer players under the bus, it all starts to wear on me about a month before the trade deadline even arrives. This season, with the Blazers struggling quite a bit, was no exception. This trade deadline brought new meaning to the phrase “beware the Ides of March.”
I was stuck in a seminar all day on March 15th. And I was checking twitter sporadically on my phone under the table while I was supposed to be learning (shh, don’t tell my boss).
I too was surprised when Marcus and Gerald were traded but hopefully they can get something out of the New Jersey trade (as long as they don't get any of the top 3 picks) As far as I'm concerned, no one besides LaMarcus and Nico, are safe. Let's build around these two guys, get a couple of good draft picks, and sign a solid free agent (or 2 or 3) to keep this roster in play-off contention.
I agree Darren; LaMarcus and Nic are the 2 "safe" guys on my list too. I hope the draft this year ends up being as deep as we've been hearing so we can make the most of it.
