    He is garbage really dissapointed in him.

    A lot of people,  including me, thought he can be out starting center this year. Claver has been even worst

    He's hesitating, overthinking the game. Shooting has to be intinctive and Joel can shoot, he's just not in an offensive flow yet...not sure if he will develop it but he'd better if he wants an NBA career.

    I think he will be ok with more playing time under his belt. He's probably shocked at the speed and physical play. He has to get more time and more plays called for him. He will be fine. It's a long season. Look how long it took Rudy to adjust smh.

    He's 1-18 from the field this season. While it's disappointing for sure, I think once he gets more consistent minutes, his confidence will grow. I'd also like to see him in the post instead of taking those long jump shots cold off the bench. Get buckets inside early then work your way out.

    Again, I'd swap him to Israel for the Rhino in a heartbeat but that's not possible. Stotts said when training camp started that it'd take 30 games for the new guys to acclimate to the NBA game and he's probably right. Like a lot of fans I want that instant gratification that Lillard has shown across the board every game. That's not going to happen fast enough so I'll give em the 30 game window to show what they've got. I think some of it is stage fright..Nolan Smith is obviously suffering from that but Joel can't throw a ball in a swimming pool right now.

    Unfortunately,none of the rooks, save Dame,have that microwave aspect about their game. None have shown us the ability to come in and headcrack cats right out of the gate. Some have had their moments,but their play has been inconsistent at best. The most important thing is our health. If we can all stay and be healthy at the all-star break, and have at least a .500 record, we'll see what our youngsters are made of when the stakes are higher.Play-off push ? Maybe not,but thats the time of year when teams play more for eachother as opposed to just with eachother.

    The worst part about this is that he's under contract for at least another season. I was hoping it was just a one-year deal so we'd have more cap room in the summer but to no avail. It also doesn't help that he's never in the game consistently, but still, he's been one of the bigger disappointments early on.

    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...
