    His coach said that he will play on wednesday in Bilbao with his french team...

    Obviously, this is extremely reprehensible and even irresponsible

    I'm excited about Batum this year. I watched him play some games in Europe and he looks much more confident in himself. Obviously he has always looked better in France with a lower level of competition, but judging by what I've seen and an interview I read from him, it sounds like he's ready for a great year. Watching him last year was difficult sometimes because you would see moments where he looked like one of the best players in the NBA and then the next minute he would be extremely passive sitting in the corner waiting for the ball, but I think those days are past him.

    I don't know if anybody has posted this here, but this is a great article about Batum and his change over the summer. http://www.oregonlive.com/blazers/index.ssf/2011/11/trail_blazers_forward_nicolas_1.html

    Potential may not be tangible BDawg, but he is a young player who is from a European country and who has been hurt quite a bit. He has a lot of talent to develop still. Don't forget that he is only 22 years old, which means that he would of barely been out of college if he was an American.

    Only thing I'm worried about Batum is, whether he should get his starting job back? Maybe coach can bring Camby off the bench, and start Aldridge at center?

    Doesn't he have a contract with his team in France too? If he had a game in France on Christmas, I wouldn't expect him to skip out on a Nov. 30th NBA game. I mean... by this logic everyone should just sit in a hermetically sealed room all off-season. Players need to practice and keep up their skills. Injuries happen but it's a completely reasonable risk.

    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...
