    if you dont know why people were so attached to joel than you havn't been a blazer fan for long.

    but i asked a friend of mine that question, they responded and said.

    "he was the first blazer i remember that didn't conform to the jail blazers. he showed character and heart.
    one of the few during that time.. that actually did."

    take that as you want to.

    I am a fan of defence.

    So after having a few days to cool down I take back what I said about us never coming close to getting to the playoffs.  I truly apologize and wish nothing but the best for the Blazers.  I hope the Joel does come back in 30 days and wear the jersey he was born to wear.  Yes I am a Blazers fan, but yes I do get attached to players that make this team stand out.

    I think Gerald Wallace opens the way to the possibility of trading Nick Batum or at least shopping him in a combination for cp3 or Dwight Howard.

    Most people seem to know what's up, 
    brookelyn... really? u call yourself a fan and then u say you hope we never make a playoff? why? because we lost a center who, as great as he was and as much as we love him, was bringing nothing essential to the table? Gerald Wallace is the kind of player who get 10 pts from pure hussle and effort plays. He brings offensive and defensive consistency to our team and allows us to match up with any other top 10 team. Consider Miami, LA (or Camby) could cover bosh, Wallace on James, and Roy on Wade. Dont forget the other high energy hussle players we have on D (Batum, Mathews). For the first time as a trail blazer fan I can actually see us going somewhere this playoffs. We have a depth like none we have ever had before and a team chemistry/stylethat was only missing a Gerald Wallace type player to be a contender. For the first time ever we have a team that can not only compete with anyone but win a championship, and people are complaining? 
    Hope those draft picks we sent to Charlotte = the next MJ because if not you will have turned on a Portland team that will be GREAT for a long time to come. 
    Proudly Portland,
    Zne

    I don't even know where to start with this. A F?! What? Come on. It sounds like you got some personal feelings for this guy honey.But its a buisness,its about making our team better,and lets be honest Przybilla wasn't bringing it,he himself even said he's not gonna be 100% for a few years. A Few years!! Whats that. Its a business,I get he loves portland and all,but he's still gonna be gettin paid his millions when he suits up for Charlotte.So lets not feel too bad sweetie

    This is probably a good move for next year or maybe the year after...but to give up everyone in the 5 position except for Canby (who wasn't even ready to play at the time) was probably not the smartest move for this year.

    Aldridge is 6 foot 11 and 2cm.
    he gets the job done nicely at center.

    Lamarcus is not a center!! And to think we are ok because Wallace can play the 4 is wishful thinking as well. He is a hack 4, not a legitimate 4. It could work for brief stretches and only against certain teams, but that's it. I like Wallace (at SF), but now we only have one legit Center and one legit Power Forward on our team!! I think it will cause greater wear and tear on LA and Camby now for the rest of the year as well. I think this trade is not good for this season, but could work out to be better for next year. These are the reasons I do not like this trade, not because I am overly attached to Joel and Dante!! Though I really did appreciate their hard work day in and day out without ever complaining about playing time or rotation.

    WHOA.
    Like 35,000 new members in a week? 
    And why are some people TALKING IN ALL CAPS? ITS SO WEIRD AND SLOPPY, it remeinds me of a child trapped ina  glass box yelling inaudibly..

     babbit will play the 4 spot.... this opens up playing time for him... this team will flourish for the rest of the season mark my word
    this team will do the opposite of flourish is babbit gets in the number 4 spot.

    The big question i have, is why are so many people attached to Pyrzbilla?
    He has never been one of Portlands  stand out players, and to call him a role player is a stretch at that.
    As a blazer fan, or a fan of any team, you would think that one would want its team to be best it can be, to go out there and play with such fierce players and come out with the W.
    Well this team has had a lot of trouble over the past few years, teams have been lookin at us in their rearveiw for a while now and suddenly we are in the top ten in the race......after the halfway point?....with Roy and Camby injured? ....and we just got an All Star Power Forward???? WHOA!!!!

    This is great for the team, the chemistry will be the only question i have...only concern, but i think this is going to surprise the rest of the league, Wallace could just be the missing link that NBA anthropologists talk about.
    Watch out Now.
    Yes Tay, I vote for you to harp on people using caps lock. With your 18 errors per 20 characters typed in your uneducated, consistentaly misspelled, overly punctuated and grammarless posts, I'm sure you will command their respect. Also GW is not a PF. I see your basketball knowledge still has gone nowhere.

    Oh really? is that why he plays like one....? Is that why he carries the team like one?
    I mean the fool is the same height as dwight howard, howard gets it done just fine at C.
    Aldridge is the tallest player on the team now, and still camby gets the spot at C, usually teams put their tallest player in at C.
    But what does it matter, theyre just finna throw him the ball anyway.
    Aldridge can play both spots.

    Hey Tom, i honestly did not read anything you just wrote, so please stop calling my house........... im not going to go out with you no matter how hard you ride my jock....

    Tay, you are so retarded you keep regurgitating your lame insults. You already used that one on Kassandra several times and someone else who I forgot now, so I guess it is my turn to receive the bounty of blessings from your creative humor.

    Terrific trade but it did come at a cost.  Pryzbilla was our enforcer and Dante was an everything man.  It sucks that trades mean we have to give something .  We just unloaded my favorite player Pryz.  I'm so happy we got a good guy in return.  Wallace has some fire to go along with his talent.  Good, good trade.

    This trade is looking more and more like a steal as each game passes. Crash simply does it all!

    A++++++ trade Gerald is a beast, WE lost 1 average player in Cunningham, Joel has very little game, Marks got paid, So they get 2 #20 or so picks wow no big loss for "crash the beast of the northwest".

    We always rag on the Lakers for getting Gasol for chump change, but we just pulled off a heist. As much as I like Joel and Dante, they are nowhere near the caliber of player that Crash is and we only gave up 2 1st round picks? 1 that will probably in the 20's this year in a weak draft and a protected pick 2-3 years from now. Wallace isn't as good as Gasol, but we still pulled off a really big coup. Kudos to Cho and the front office staff.

    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...
