    I like Matthews because he is not afraid to go mix it up in the paint. Yes Batum has good defensive skills, but his offense disappears in the forth quarter.

    Matthews plays with more heart.  Their stats are virtually the same.

    Go to this link and review:

    We need strong Paint Players in the forth instead of players whose offensive game disappears.

    I am tired of waiting on Batum to improve his game.



    There are teams who really want Batum. Do a sign and trade with those teams so we get something back in return.



    Your thoughts?

    Trade Batum for Rondo and keep Mathews.

    Why do people always say ridiculous stuff. Maybe Boston would take Batum in a sign and trade but they would like a lot more. Also no team is going to want a sign and trade deal for Felton, Thabeet, Rhino or to trade for a 39 year old Thomas. I like Matthews effort and his toughness but both of those guys have to go for us to get a lot better.

    I semi agree with cmeese47. Matthews is incredibly inconsistent and has been given a pretty good chance to excel. I have always loved Batum but I think trading him would be something that would bring us the best return.

    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...
