    Will Nate change his playing style if CP3 becomes a Blazer?  I wonder how CP3 and Brandon would coexist?  Brandon's game is more suited to the half court methodical break down the defense at the end of the game.  How would CP3 change that?  I like the idea of getting him but I wonder if Brandon straight up for Paul makes sense.  Would be sad to see Brandon go though.
    I am a fan of Good defense, good chemistry, teamwork and the team gelling and going deep into the playoffs. A championship is in sight!

    I dont think Nate will change his playing stile with Paul it will be more up tempo game, even though Nate allways says we gonna run more and be a more up tempo team but it never happens. I mean i have seen us run and it looks great but not alot. With Paul here it would be an up tempo stile for the most part thats just the way Paul is. Brandon and paul would be great together they would make each other better, Super Stars can adjust for the better. I would bet my 2 things in between that BROY wont go anywhere :D

    Chris Paul can play any pace he wants. He'll be perfect for us in the half-court. Nate's offense in it's purest deals with a PG who actually handles the ball to create. That's why Brandon has had the ball in his hands a lot because for the longest time he was the only one who could create for other people. Could Blake? Sometimes. Andre Miller helped him out a lot in this area, but he lacked a reliable outside shot which is also what Nate's offense needs.

    With or without Paul, you will see Portland play a little different this year. Nate changed coaches assistants for a reason, because he wanted to shake things up, and like Bertram said, Paul can adapt to any situation. He and Roy are superstars for a reason.

    It is difficult, if not impossible to play an uptempo game when you have to take the ball out of the net more often than not.  At the start of the 09-10 season, the Blazers had excellent interior defense, but lacked perimeter defense...outside of Nic.  Blake and company were having a difficult time stopping the ball and denying penetration.  Thus, you saw our bigs (Oden and Priz in particular) in foul trouble often.  With Priz and G.O down with injury, we then had a MAJOR problem getting stops.  If not for Dre's incredible ability to see the floor and make that outlet pass, things would have been even worse.  I, like Hawes, see next season differently.  The team has acknowledged the need for perimeter D and added Matthews and Johnson.  I believe that they will place defense high on their priority list when looking for a starting PG as well.  With the bigs back healthy, and the perimeter D hopefully shored up, you WILL see a different pace.  Get ready!

    If CP3 comes up to Portland, you can count on him running the team for the most part.
    His ingenious creativity to create for him and the rest of his team is what makes him who he is.
