    I've never been so disappointed in a Trail Blazers team in my life. There hasn't been a more boring team to watch since I've been following the team. They have tuned out their coach and have thrown in the towel. It's time to start over.

    Everyone should be available for trade, including Aldridge and Batum. You know it's a sad season when the most joy I get from watching the team is when our third stringers are in the game, hustling their butts off, trying to make something happen. But do they get any real playing time? Nope. But Aldridge, who looks like he could care less (case in point in the first quarter when he didn't even move for a loose ball) and Felton, who turns the ball over on every possession just keep getting shoved down our throats. Am I being too hard on LA? Maybe. But I expected more leadership from our All-Star. He wants to be Batman? Then dangit man up and hold the team accountable. We don't have a talented team, but we shouldn't get beat by 30+ points routinely on the road. I severely underrated the impact of losing Roy. He was our heart, our soul, our team. I don't remember EVER questioning the team's effort when Roy was here. While Aldridge has all the talent in the world, I don't think he has the mental makeup to ever become "The Man." He'd be a great Robin but we just don't have any other ammunition needed to acquire Batman.

    Keep Elliot, Luke, Nolan, Rhino, Chris, Joel, and Wesley. The rest can go. Fire Nate. He's a good guy but the team has tuned him out and his offense is broke without Roy. And insert a new coaching staff. Maybe some new blood can turn this toxic team around.

    Its time to rebuild through the draft. Heck, if we're going to lose by 40, I'd rather lose with youngsters then veterans who have already reached their peak. I'm sorry you had to come back to this Joel.

    Agree with what you said about LA. He has always been passive tho, we shouldve seen this coming the day Brandon Roy retired. The only reason the team didnt fall apart last year was because Andre Miller was out there being a leader and LA still didnt consider himself "the man" to carry the weight. I looked at the roster this last december and said "wow lots of talent" but I had no clue where the leadership would come from. Obviously the position that usually should be filled with a leader, PG, has not been. Wesley Matthews means nothing to me anymore. He has lost every ounce of confidence in his body. Batum still isnt aggressive enough and has the Lamarcus syndrome, not being a leader when he should be. Keep elliot, joel, and CJ from bench. Keep Lamarcus but get him a guard who will get up in his buisness like Broy did when needed. And ya...Miami is probably looking reaaaaallll nice to Joel now...

    Also in agreement with your thoughts regarding LA.  Keeping things PC, I will simply say the motivation present last season wasn't this season, and the return of the old LaMarsha is no surprise to me.  The best player on a bad team isn't always necessarily an elite player...or even a perennial all-star.  That said, must a rebuilding team necessarily build around it's best player.  The Warriors have dealt their best player.  If the right deal was offered, I absolutely would consider moving Aldridge.  He showed his potential last season, almost teasing us, but has now regressed and become the perimeter player he was prior to last season.

    I've said it numberous times on these boards...this is a jumpshooting team without any jumpshooters.  Without anything in the block, you're dead in the water...at any level.

    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...
