    Should we change the starting line up going into the these next three games or do we keep things the same? Roy is playing at a pretty high level now and it seems he can compete even with his bad knees, so why not start him?
    Or do you think this would mess up the chemistry of what we have going for us with him off the bench? So what are your thoughts?

    He has had 2 games back to back and this last one WOW! a week ago we were all thinking waivers,with good reason,last night he single handedly took control of the game and cattle proded the blazers into playing basketball. After last night i would say it is his if he wants it and I would think that it wouldn't be contested much.

     There is not 3 games, there are only 2 games. In-less you want Dalles to win one. I know I don't

    No I don't want it to go 7, but if it does go 7, I would want Roy to be a starter in all of them.

    I think because Roy probably still needs to have his minutes monitored a bit he shouldn't be starting.  Let him close out quarters like usual.  Maybe give him the latter half of the third quarter to really establish his rhythm and allow him to operate in the fourth.  He will attract so much attention from Dallas in a final quarter it's going to seriously open up other players.  I wonder if people realize that we didn't just win a ridiculous comeback on Saturday but we effectively sent Dallas back to the drawing board on their fourth quarter defensive plans.  I'm curious to see how they'll respond in game 5.  It feels like they're gonna' completely fold or come out firing on all cylinders.

    after poor perfomance in first 2 games in Dallas I would try to play with Roy in starting 5, I think that this move can bring him more confidence and for BLAZERS third win in a row and then back to Rose Garden and ...

    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...
