    Is anyone else concerned with Joel and his status, we can still use his brute body up front. I haven't heard much other then he is hiding out in Minnesota. he is equally important, or has been as Oden is.I know he is getting older and the knee injury  doesn't help, but he was never a finesse player. Unlike players who rapidly decline when their athleticism fades he should still be a quality backup. Look at Ol' Fab 5, Juwan howard.

    well said! Last I heard Oden is ahead of schedule, slimming down, and will be ready for training camp no doubt as someone said in another post. I heard Joel was on schedule, lets hope its true. Gotta love the vanilla gorilla! He's a good tough presence down low and can hit the defensive and offensive boards really well. Always gives 100%

    I'm not a bit concerned about Joel, he has proved he is a warrior.  I don't think it is if he plays, I think it's when.

    I don't question Joel's tenacity or determination to get back onto the court. He's got the heart of the warrior, rather I worry about what the injury did to his legs. Can he regain his quick jumping ability he relies on so heavily? That is the $1 million question.

    I think Joel will be just fine if given the opportunity, that's just it though will he be given that chance again.

    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...
