    It just doesn't seem necessary. We have Blake! People seem to think that Blake is a crumby point guard. He isn't!! He can pass the ball and score if he has to. At backup we have Bayless. We haven't seen him play much but I can imagine that if we let him play he will show us what he can do. If he isn't good then we can trade and maybe move Blake down a spot. But if we do need a point guard I think that maybe we should get Von Wafer. Call me crazy but I think it's a good idea

    i love blake, but ive seem him balk at open shots and not take them. He's great at dishing the balls out but sometimes you just gotta trust your shot. This is the Lakers, Brandon roy isnt gonna get pissed because blake took an open three. I just think if Blake shot a bit more, the new point guard talk would stop. Last season he did have some solid games for us.
    I am a fan of winning a championship and never hearing the words jailblazers or bowie again.

    I don't think anyone thinks Blake is a CRUMMY PG. I think what they are saying is that he isn't a great Starting PG. If you look at our starting lineup, every position is filled with a sure fire starter except the PG. He is one of the best back up PGs in the league. When you compare his ability to other Starting PGs though he doesn't fall into the category that would take us over the top as a career history. With that said, he had a standout season this last year. He got us to the Playoffs, and he wasn't the only player on the team that forgot to show up. That first round loss was a team effort and with the team we are puting on the floor this year, taking account for experience, Oden's workout regiment, and the addition of a hungry Martel, this is a team that could easily make the Conference Finals. This is why I think the most important issue to address is the back up PF, if we can get a top back up PF in that spot we could make the NBA Finals with the rest of the team we have, possibly win it all.

    I love Blake but in my opinion, we're not going to be championship contenders without a better starting point guard...  I think he would be a great backup for a great team but if you look at all of the championship teams, most of them have atleast a good point guard... Derek Fisher, Tony Parker, Rajon Rondo wasn't the greatest when the C's won but he had a little more help than the Blazers have.  I love Blake but I think in order to get our team to the next level of contending for a championship we need a better point guard to start and have Blake come off the bench.

    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...
