    i'll admit it. i'm a hater when it comes to OKC.  is it just me or does nothing bad ever happen to them? they never have injuries.  they always get the calls (seriously i've never seen a bad call against OKC). that bogus goal tending call versus OKC sent our season in to a tail spin.  they belong in seattle.  they started rebuilding around durant at about the same time we were rebuilding but with much different results.  bottom line, i will root for the heat against OKC. they are just the darlings of the NBA and it makes me sick. enough of the rant.
    OKC is going to be a power house for years to come.  we need to put a team together good enough to beat them.  getting a bunch of geezers like Garnett, Kidd, Nash, etc. won't cut it.  i think a start would be to steal Harden from OKC in a year or two (can't remember when his contract is up).  draft lillard to counter westbrook and pray barnes or beal turn in to a superstar. anyway, i am up for a decade long fierce rivalry with this team. any ideas how to get to the level where we can beat this team in the Western Conference Finals?

    You got to be willing to start over and you have to nail the draft. Not sure Harden will become available OKC should keep him regardless of price. They can always get rid of Perkins to save money. 

    Beal and Lillard would be a nice start, but Batum has to become an all-star type player, LA has to stay healthy and become more of a leader. We then need to get lucky I just do not seeing reaching that level with mid to late first round picks.

    Beal, Barnes, Marshall/Lillard could probably be the next OKC of the west. I honestly think Beal could be our second chance at a superstar SG. Just check his knees like crazy so we dont have to use the amnesty clause in the next decade. I think Batum will become the next Shane Battier if he doesnt seriously improve. He will be a role player and great defender, but probably not a building block of a franchise like so many people currently believe. I could be wrong, but he's had all the opportunity the past four years and a great player doesnt stand around and let his team loose like Batum did most games this season

    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...
