    This team has needed some strength and toughness at the Power Forward position for a while now, and the player most likely to bring it to us is no longer there to be had. And don't kid yourselves about Paul Millsap - Utah will match anything that's out there. What is KP doing? Travis isn't good enough to play the position. He does not rebound. He's a jumpshooter. He's not exactly the definition of strength OR toughness. This team is starting to confuse me.

    Keep your sights open. You never know what might happen with KP. Yes, Brandon Bass is off the table, but I think you are the one kidding yourself on Milsap. Utah can't afford to play "keeping up with the Joneses" when it comes to Milsap. Portland could end up overpaying for him, but they can out bid Utah if they really want to. There are other options out there though. Marcin Gortat is is a PF that CAN play Center and apparently made a big splash in the Playoffs for Orlando. Now all signs point to Dallas signing him as their Center, but Dallas has got to be running low on money by now. David Lee is still on the blocks and again, New York isn't going to offer him too much because they want to go after Wade, Bosh, and/or LeBron next summer. With that said, Portland could have drafted a guy this year that fills that need. I don't know what their basketball IQs are, I haven't seen any of them play, so I can't pass judgement on that. I also don't know how good Freeland will be. The Blazers have assets available that COULD fill that void. It is just easier for us as fans to take on a known commodity. Summer League is really no judge either because if you remember, Batum was a ghost in Summer League last year.
    I am a fan of Good basketball, great fans and Rip City!

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    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...
