    I just want to hear your thoughts on our new general manager. Basically, do we have faith in him to make this team better. I know it's only been since July that he's been the GM and has few accomplishments in this Org. but what do you all think?

    few accomplishments, or mistakes?

    Jerryd Bayless for a crummy draft pick.
    Leaving a hole in lineup after Pendergraph got hurt in preseason.
    Hiring Oberto for backup center, knowing he had a heart condition.
    Allowing the NBA's trade exception for Oden to expire.

     I'm no fun  when I disagree with Blazer management choices.  Cho stepped into a mess, and his hands are tied by the owner. The mess this team is in is not on Cho, and I hope he can fix it.

    Honestly, he's been pretty much invisible so far. I like to imagine he's doing brilliant analysis and strategic planning behind the scenes. Stealth management. ;-) In about a month we can argue about his actual moves --when they've become visible.

    I'm glad he's not trade-crazy, and has taken these few months to get to know the team. It remains to be seen how well that will pay off in these challenging circumstances.

    Most of you know my feelings on this subject.

    For the new Blazer fans to this site...Cho is the right man for the job.  Patience.  I would even go one step further than Occassia, in that I don't believe an accurate grade can be given until the start of next season (if no lockout).  Even then, he will just be getting started. 

    I don't expect any rotational players but Joel to be moved before the deadline.

    As they say, the best moves are the ones you don't make. A no-move still is a move. When everyone else were clamoring for transactions, Cho kept his cool and it paid dividends. Despite the injuries, the team is able to play without some key guys. The players are able to have a chemistry, enabling them to learn how to play without the stars.

    You guys made me glance at the schedule.

    We gotta play the Lakers 3 more times,
    the Spurs 3 more times,
    Dallas and OKC twice,
    some games against the heating up Hornets,
    and a couple more against the Nugs and Jazz.
    lotta season left, and for the second year in a row, we get to enjoy watching our severely banged up and shorthanded team, play against the best the NBA can throw at us.

    Blazers will be blazers there aint nothing Cho can change about that, but i dont trust him because he came from the seattle sonic organization and if anyone knows anything about that is that there not to be trusted, and plus he went to Oklahoma before he came here yet i will give him this that he came back to the northwest because he knows the northwest has the best fans ever, and if Cho ever gets involved in a scandal like the sonics about the blazers we will have some big problems but for now hes doing the best he can, Nate McMillan also came from the Sonic s era but hes honestly the best thing that could of happened to the blazers

    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...
