    So this year we are all aware of the new up beat tempo that Nate has the Blazers running. I believe this up beat speed is exactly what the blazers need to force others to play our game. However, this year is the wrong year to have it. With the condensed new season, that means less rest, and more running. Of course it also makes it hard for other teams to run with us. But if we are running this way every game. Perhaps we will be the ones that are too tired to run our own offense. Any thoughts?

    Nate needs to sub more!  I don't understand why he doesn't give Elliott Williams more minutes for one... hes a freak athlete and could prove himself with some minutes givin too him... and then Chris Johnson should be playing more so that the posts can get more rest.  I also thinks CJ fits into an up-tempo offense just by watching how athletic he is on defense.  The up-tempo offense is fine... Nate just needs to sub.

    Blazers go deeper then most teams, You should check the minutes each player gets per game. But LA and Wallace will be getting no rest now. As for Elliot, I dunno if he should get more minutes. We have Nolan smith to sub at the point and J-Cross to sub out Wesley. Just because Elliot is an athlete doesn't mean much. Which is why Chris Johnson has been in the D league for the past few years. Also we can't go and do to many subs because it messes with the tempo.

    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...
