    i love MKG. after watching him in the NCAAs my immediate impulse was we gotta get this guy.  however, is this type of player really our first priority?  basically we would be getting a younger version of Gerald Wallace.  i think what we desperately need is a game closing scoring guard.  we need a beal or a lillard far more than we need an MKG.  i think if we had more pieces then MKG would be the guy. but we don't. we are very very weak offensively.  we have one scoring option on most nights with a 2nd scoring option every 4 or 5 games when batum decides to play aggresively with the ball.  i just think it would be counter productive to trade up for MKG, presumably losing both our picks. MKG is a fierce competitor that plays shut down defense and i'd love to have him, just not for the price we'd have to pay and the situation we are currently in.  if Roy were healthy and still playing i'd probably have a different opinion.

    I too like MKG however I would agree that another shooting guard is not our first priority unless we execute a trade for a good pg under FA or another pg under #6.

    I would get MKG in a heartbeat. The man is the second coming of scottie pippen. He's the hardest working and most NBA ready player in the draft. If he somehow slips to 6, Blazers brass needs grab him.

    MKG is a stud plays hard all time, is an excellent defender and attacks the basket. He is a gamer and I bet he would push Batum to another level.

    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...
