    ATL keeps Horford even if they get Howard so then they can move AL to his natural position. I don't think they keep Josh Smith tho... unless they believe Smoove and Howard can be GREAT together since they are long time friends.

    Having Howard, Horford and Smith would allow the Hawks to have a dominant defense without sacrificing scoring. Also that trio would make them immediate threats to the Heat.

    That can be a monster trio but can Smith play the 3 ? 

    Maybe adding Howard they can slide Smith to SF but I think he plays best at the 4

    Smith could play the SF he spent about 10% of the Hawks plays at that spot according to 82games.com

    He said JJ is the only one who would be a starter?  huh? Double doubles,rebounding,yeah those are normally considered good things from a player,i guess except in portland.

    ^ get off it he was on the trade block at the deadline and no great offer was gaven because of his lack of post presence on the defense end pretty much all you have out of jj is blown up stats due to added minutes this season great player on the boards and on the offensive side but when it comes down to defending the paint he isn't great and we need a post presence bad

    get off it? you've also told me goran dragick is better then damian lillard,so i think your alittle out've your head. you seem to like the euro dudes alot for some reason.lets see what happens,and when they miss his production next year,we can talk about it.You compain about the dude,but your status says your a fan of JJ posterizing the opposition? what up with that? I just want the blazers to be good,like the used to be,59 wins and stuff. having a guy basically Exceed all expectations after we pick him up on waivers,and not even entertaining a option of him coming back,it sends a bad message to the players as well as fans.It says this team isnt willing to spend and do the necissary things to win,you think a team like the lakers or nuggets would let him walk? you think miami would let him walk? no they wouldnt so its about the message this sends just as much as it is about numbers or defense. I just remember the teams we had where we payed our guys and had backup players like detlef schempf,Rod strickland,shawn kemp,and dale davis.Now paul allen has basically given up on spending money and while I can understand why he feels like that,as long as he's more into the seahawks then the blazers we as fans will suffer

    Who was talking about Dragic?? LOL

    JJ will not make take this team to 59 wins. Lamarcus does not want JJ as our starting center.  Hickson is a good player but he is not a center!

    Everyone knows we need a legit center if we even want to get close to 59 wins. Hickson isnt a center so why keep him?? To get a couple mins behind an All Star PF in Lamarcus Aldridge.....

    Oj Mayo was a great player with Memphis and they let him go. Good teams lets players go even if they are good....

    Lets just drop it because Hickson will not be on the Blazers next season

    ummm just because I like dragics ball distribution this year and freelands defensive upside makes me into the euro players because god forbid a euro player ever be good or have potential to be good right? and dragic is not euro if your gonna go that rout at least get your accusations right and I never said lillard didn't have the potential to be better then dragic all I said was dragic is playing more efficient ball this year quit twisting my words around your seriously reaching with that

    lolol btw what does a status message and liking a player have to do with wanting a player to leave in order to get better?  I can't like a player and want that player to leave in order to make this team better down the road? jj wouldn't even really be a huge factor if he came off the bench for one he wouldnt even get half the minutes he's getting now if he played behind aldridge and I think our defensive need @ his starting role is a big factor in being competitive in this league you keep talking about teams player undersized ball successfully but the teams you speak of that are playing successful undersized ball also have undersized c's that can play solid d

    Dragic is a fourth year player who learned from Steve Nash Lillard was a rookie whose competition last year was the Portland State Vikings and not the Lakers.

    Yes small ball is the new way to play but, the problem with us playing it is we are in the Western Conference the majority of the teams in the west play with a traditional lineup I think people are so focused on Miami winning the championship with a small lineup that they feel that's the way we should go and if we were in the Eastern Conference then I would agree you would need a good small lineup because you gotta go against Miami, New york and others but, we need a team with a traditional lineup who can play small ball at times because we saw first hand this season what happens when you play small ball on a regular bases in the west we get destroyed in the paint and our players get fatigued and injured and like BLASER mention you gotta have two way players to play small ball successfully and unfortunately for JJ he's only good on one side of the floor and most of the team are not really good defenders to play small ball successfully.

    it is silly to have a player on your status that you WANT to leave. But guys do weird stuff all the time,so ok. I just see a pattern of all the players you dig being white guys.You straight up said dragic is better then lillard which is nuts.But anyway, Siccolo is right,hickson isnt coming back so I should just drop it,it makes me angry that our team is gonna let a guy walk who averages a double double. You build a team by adding the best players,regardless of posistion. We drafted Oden instead of Durant and Bowie instead of Jordan because we already had players at thier posistions,how did that work out for us. Teams nowadays play PF's at center all the time,there are very few True centers in the game anymore. Tim duncan is a power forward,but he will go on the all nba team balled this year as a center,the league is acknowledging that the game is different and true centers rarely excist.I understand what is being said and I agree with alot of things,the only issue i have is that there arent many options available that we can consider a upgrade from what we have,maybe what we have isnt the best but why lose it when you cant get something better? I cant wait to see what happens,unless oshley pulls of some blockbuster,were gonna have a hard time at center,and when was the last time blazers pulled off a blockbuster trade? and like i said, youve got a status pumping up hickson,but you want him gone,thats pretty silly. So this will be the last time to talk about Hickson,lets just consider him gone,no matter how stupid it is,and next year we can have a euro dude with a backhair sweater

    Haha, backhair. I have no idea what is going on with the centre situation, but for instant offence, I think Gerald Henderson would be great, and Budinger would be a nice add.

    ummmmm what does white or black have to do with skill level? you are twisting things around so much I said right now dragic is playing more efficient ball and if I recall that was said in the early part of the season and you read it as "I think dragic is the best player to ever play"  but anywayz you can twist it however you want to try and fit your little argument but anywayz whats wrong with liking pass first gaurds? dudes in the top 10 for assists per game if he had more talent around him and was winning more you would be like "omg he's the next jason kidd" true story but anywayz enough argueing over the next great white hope in the nba (cause according to you I sound like a white supremecy supporter cause I seen talent in "white players" and just absolutley hate black players) lolol

     That is why I would like us to bundle our first round pick for Tyson Chandler along with Freeland and Claver and keep hickson if we could. Claver in my opinion all I see is alot of bad passes, turnovers and poor shot selection with ok defense. He will only be half as good as Rudy Fernandez but will be twice as bad and I did not particularly care for Rudy. I think we can get better bench players here without having to troll the eoro's benches and pick up their garbage.

    Maybe if we had an assistant coach that taught defense JJ could get some better defense going but he is playing out of posistion as 6th man he could get plenty of minutes playing the 4and 5

    As long as he goes home and beats his wife while getting neck tattoo's while slathering Rogaine on his back.

    Who cares about a 'cute guy'? Whenever I saw Oden i kept 911 ready on my phone because he was once scary looking dude and that's what we really need. Someone who scares the opposition. Like a Viking or something. Like Birdman, but without tats, and long unruly hair and a Billy Gibbons beard.

    If the ugliest available guy will mean improvements in our front court then I don't care... I want a beast in the post to bring presence and command the respect of the opposition. 


    A guy who plays hard like David West but has the kind of veteran savvy that Tim Duncan brings to his game. He doesn't need to block 3 shots a game. But our Center must change shots and grab rebounds on both ends.


    We gave up the 2nd highest field goal percentage per night to our opponents and that just says how many easy looks we gave to them... Our perimeter defense is great but our defense in and around the paint needs massive improvement. 

    I am a fan of shouting Batuuuuuum-Shaka-Laka whenever Nic hits a 3!!!!!

    Delonte West is the white, black Jason Kidd. Not very thug. Oden, World Peace, AK-47, Rodman, Ben Wallace. That's a team. Thug Team. Scalabrine, Delonte, Mehmet Okur, Chris Kaman. That's another team. Weird looing team. Also have you ever seen Jheri Curls on a white guy? http://jocksandstilettojill.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/joakim-noah.jpg
