    I don't know about anyone else...but I love the Team Basketball Im seeing.  I didn't realize how often I was "HOPING" last year.  Hoping that Rudy would have a good game, Hoping that LA would not get tired and settle for outside shots, hoping that Roy would make it back.  My hopes have now turned to push it, push it...keep going...not even naming a player as we get a rebound and head back up the court, not even calling out a player to get the ball to...(unless Mathews is having one of those crazy stretches).  My call outs to the TV are focused on team basketball...slash through the key...block that shot...push it back up the, run, run.  I love it.

    It's so fun to hear that they seem to enjoy eachother and are "playing for eachother" as Sarah pointed out in her last blog post.  So even though it would be great to have a CP3 or a Roy...I'll take a team playing like this anyday!

    We have 2 All-stars in LA and Wallace, 5 stars in Batum, Crawford, Matthews, Camby and Felton and several quality roll players who are getting better all the time. ROLL ON BLAZERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The fact that they are playing well so quickly is highly encouraging. Hope to see this team continue the trend and be rewarded for it.

    It worked for the 2004 Pistons, so it is possible. But without a player to hit the big shot or carry his team through a rough patch, it does make it very difficult, which is why the 2004 Pistons are really the only team to win it all without a superstar since I can remember.

    Well that's where LA next step needs to be to get to the next level is to be the closer I see this team not only like the 04 pistons but aslo last years mavs but younger (outside of Camby and Kurt of course) and more athletic so like the saying goes we are going as far as our best player and if LA gets to that level there's nothing we can't accomplish.

    For us to be comparable to the 2011 Mas, LA will really have to step his game up, because Dirk was simply phenomenal that postseason. They had a great bench and a ton of shooters, but his postseason run was something of legend. Can LA play at that level? Well, we've seen him like that for a couple of months last season but can he sustain it? That's the big question. He definitely has the talent though, that's for sure.

    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...
