    From Wendell Maxey of Ridiculous Upside-
     In 11 games this season, Diebler is averaging 8.1 points and 1.5 rebounds in 20 minutes per game, while shooting 50% from the field, 52.8 % from 3-point, and 92.3% from the free-throw line. Numbers aside, playing in Greece has provided Diebler the chance to soak in the knowledge of the pro game the only way a rookie really can -- by actually playing and experiencing in-game scenarios for himself.
    Trail Blazers international scout Jason Filippi on Diebler's progress overseas-
     "He looked good in the game I saw with 13 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and was very active on both sides of the court. He moves well without ball and knows how to get open. Despite being considered primarily as just a 3-point shooter I was happy to see that Jon is trying to expand his game -- the coaching staff confirmed this was their objective too --beyond that. He was uncharacteristically aggressive at putting the ball on deck and tried to go one-on-one more. He caught the ball down low a couple times and surprised me by hitting a pair of turnaround shots in low post. He may not get many opportunities like this in NBA but he is actually pretty crafty around basket. Had a couple nice drives where he fed big man too. He has a pretty light frame and in my opinion needs to get stronger to get off shots at our level. Defense is always a concern at our level but I was happy to see he plays hard on every play."
    Jon Diebler on the team that drafted him-
     "I am definitely following the Blazers. I am wishing them all the best of luck and I think they can have a very successful season. If guys can stay healthy then they should do very well," Diebler started. "It was very unfortunate to see Roy retire. As many people know and would agree, he was one of the better players in the NBA. You never want to see injuries to anyone. I would have loved to have the opportunity to maybe play along side of him and learn from him, but I wish him all the best."

    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.


    Thank God they are 19 games over 500.  Mayb...

    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...
