    I didn't really support the stotts hire but i'm trying to do my homework and see the positive.  right now on NBA tv they are playing game 6 of the '11 finals between dallas and miami.  i find this interesting to watch because carlisle has repeatedly credited stotts for the offensive schemes that got them over the top.  stotts also recently mentioned his idea to use LMA in the framework of nowitzki in dallas that championship year.  anyway, just trying to pay attention and look for those fine details that supposedly separates this guy from the rest.

    If Aldridge can work on his dibble, then we can really envision seeing him being used much like Dallas used Dirk. When got his his man into the triple threat position, it was game over. Playoff off him..buckets. Play him to the hoop for a layup or free throw attempts. Somehow play him perfectly and he stops on a dime for the off-balanced shots off of one foot.

    i never really thought about it but i noticed that LMA's footwork is quite similar to dirk's.  and really what if LMA got the three ball down.  i'm sure he's got the range. nate just never gave him that kind of opportunity.  don't get me wrong. i like LMA close to the basket but that kind of flexibility could be a weapon

    I personally think LA is way better all around than Dirk...especially defensively. Doesn't have Dirks jumper but who does? This is turning out to be a better season than I ever expected given our depth and front office moves. Nice to have a coach with a championship ring and the desire to teach and develop a young roster. Couple that with Kaleb on the bench and we're going to be fine. I was especially glad to hear Terry mention ball movement and not overdribbling...predict 2nd round of the playoffs. Anyone who wants to be a lottery team this year just doesn't understand RIP City! We have until mid January to tweak the roster if it's needed. 3 guys who don't get any ink and are under the radar...Elliot Williams, JJ Hickson and Jared Jeffries. We may have a great bench this season. Go Blazers!

    LA is better on the defensive end of the court than Dirk and yes he can guard him but no one can really guard Dirk for a series and shut him down. Wade and Lebron found that out. Now I do not think that LA's jumper will ever be like Dirk's but I do think that LA has the ability to get to the line like Dirk. Something he has not capitalized on and personally I think he might be a little shy of doing. I think this is what Stotts sees and we do too actually and this is why the comparison to Dirk

    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...
