    Via Blazersedge-
     Simmons: "He's one of the worst All-Star snubs of all time. I don't think he's going to make it. The Yao Ming -- It's going to be either him or Love. Either one of them is a travesty but what can you do? It's a 13-player team."
     Simmons: "Can't say enough about Aldridge. I never thought he was going to be this good. I actually thought when they signed him to that extension, I thought it was stupid. I thought they gave him too much money. I didn't think he'd be this good."

    wow, good on simmons for doing that.  Aldridge not making the All-Star team was really disappointing.  Next year hopefully.

    It just kills me that LMA isn't in the All-Star game.  Just hurts...

    @Herr...Get over it.  I have.  With the minutes LA is having to play, an 83rd game on his schedule may have been too much.  The LAST thing this team needs with their sites set on a post-season appearance is for Aldridge to go down.  Something needs to be done about his minutes, and I feel something will.

    Noteworthy is the fact that Simmons' comments came BEFORE another career high outburst by LMA, and again on an NBA juggernaut.  LaMarcus is shutting people up the best way possible...with his play.

    I was feeling the same as Herr but i realize LA needs all the rest he can get plus he was fighting a losing battle of getting in the allstar game it was either players who has better records, A player who are put up historical numbers in Love and a rookie phenom in Blake so I hope no one turn down going to the allstar game for the west or get injured because we need a fresh LA in the second half.

    perhaps the entire city of portland needs to see a psychiatrist...this whole self pity thing is just getting so old.

    People say nice things about portland, ya'll just dont know where to look.....

    if you want people to have a different opinion of you then you guys have to make that change.
    crying about it wont change a thing.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    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...
