        I can not tell Rip City how happy i am that we picked up AARON JAMAL CRAWFORD (had to look up his full name lol). Now honestly you may look at this addition as just a scorer that fills the SG spot... and that is partly correct, but no where near enough of an explantion! 
    Crawford for one thing can play PG-SF. At the end of the game you can feel comfortable giving the ball to him and letting him close it. That is one way he helps fill the hole that Roy left. He also will come off the bench most likely to give an insane spark to every game. Another thing that i find very interesting about this add, is that with us having him in at SG.. We can play matthews/batum/wallace at SF, Batum/wallace/LA/C. johnson at PF, and then camby/LA/oden/C. johnson/thomas at C.. My point is.. with him in, and how versatile our team is, it allows players like batum and wallace to relieve the bigs of our team from playing sooo many minutes. Yes we added C. Smith and Thomas.. but we have better people on the team that should play.

    So all in all, this signing.. makes me SOO happy, and really validates what i was refering to when i said, if we move forward from Roy, we have a chance at building a team that can really kick ass! Here is to a blazer season i have NO DOUBT will be spectactular! I can't even hate it if there are injuries.. we have a deep team, a great coach, and a new fire to win! AHHH!! Start the season now!!

    Craig Smith will provide good minutes at PF, but I am very happy with the addition of Crawford. I am also interested in the Howard trade and how the 3-1st round picks offered to PDX for Wallace could improve the team in the long run. I would rather trade Batum, Babbitt, Diebler and Thomas then losing Wallace.

    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...
