    Rudy took a fans love for granted.
    But now he knows we only like players who want to be here, look at Camby, I for one hated seeing him on the court when he was a Nugget, that jump shot he struggled with a bit last season was something he alwas hit against us when it hurt counted most. He may not be a good mid range shooter from all over the court, and he may occasionally miss a highlight dunk (something I doubt he practices or thinks much  about before a game), but he also is a top tier defensive big man so those are things you should be willing to sacrifice sometimes. He's our third best player right now in my opinion, ahead of aldridge and batum and slightly behind andre, he's one of a few players I look forward to see how they can be utilized on a healthy team. We had a lot of players taking on big roles on a new team with an intense fan base last season, which makes the small movement of personnel we endured this offseason seem one way we can get better next year. I know we have Pyrzbilla's contract to think about, but other than that we don't need to get rid of anything, we just need to cut away the fat like rudy, and watch our core get better.
    I wish Juwon the best, but after all he taught Dante and Jeff last year, I think him going to Miami is best for us. As Jeff and Dante watch a guy like Juwon who they idolize do the dirty work for the Eastern favorites, they may see a bit of how they would fit into a winning rotation as well. Minutes are the one thing we can't buy or trade for, and right now it's the one thing we need most. I never would have rooted for Miami after that stunt Lebron pulled on ESPN, but if they get Juwon I hate to admit I'll be rooting for them when he's on the floor.
    I am a fan of Not Feeding the Trolls.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
