    Also, why is everyone so down on Nicolas Batum?? If he wouldn't have injured his wrist, he was exceeding the expectations of his big contract.


    idk why other people are down on batum but to me it's several things. 

    sf is the most talented position in the nba, meaning we could find the same production for less money. not a fan of him saying he didn't want to play here until his contract was matched. honestly we should've shipped him to the bobcats for that one. there's always an excuse for why he doesn't play up to his potential. this season it was his wrist, the year before it was his shoulder. and perhaps above all he is just overrated, especially by blazer fans. they think he has some ridiculously high ceiling. it is what it is. he's a blazer so i hope the best for him and when he proves me wrong i'll eat my words. but there's nothing wrong with being willing to trade him to fulfill a need at a position where talent is scarce. i would trade him for a decent even if less talented center in a heartbeat cuz sf is a really easy position to fill.

    Not just Blazer fans though all of my friends who pretty much all like different teams always talk about Nic's potential, and yeah I hope he proves me wrong but I just don't want to be waiting for his potential to come and BAM he's 30 and we're all wondering what happened. Even if he doesn't get that much better I just hope he can play a full season that's a step in the right direction. Also it would be fantastic if he comes back being able to create for himself more. But, hopefully everything works out and this time next year we'll be talking about how happy we all are we kept him.

    Yeah, I don't agree with you Unholy, but I'm with Siccolo. We can't have only one guy on the team who can create his own shot. Lamarcus, if you get him in the post, okay. Will Barton atleast, TRIED.

    Will Barton was finally somewhat consistent a the end of the season. He can create and rebound and the only thing that will keep Wes as a starter is his defense. Will has already surpassed Wes's scoring ability. Will doesnt seem to me like the guy who tries to improve over summer, anyone know if h has been working on his game?

    Maybe he keeps that private. Final unveiling or something. He looks like a strong wind could blow him over. Maybe at the start of the season, he comes in all ripped and stuff and we'll be like, WOW WILL. Without Instagram photos of you working out, we didn't know you got ripped. Then he goes on to average 20-10-6.

    Trade idea:  Asik to Portland, J Smith to Houston, jj Hickson and Babbitt and a third piece to Atlanta who is thinking about tanking if they do not get Howard.  Not sure if the finances work out.

    Yessir. Those other two action figures were pissin me off with all the hoopla that surrounded them. I still think Withey is going to surprise some people. Kansas doesnt produce softees.

    You got that right!!!

    Hey we have Robin now... BUT I like Asik or Gortat 100x better... to get one of these players I hope Neil Oshley is going to package Robin with the S&T rights to JJ and Sasha (maybe Babbitt) for one of these better fitting centers that can take us to a high seed (3-5) in the Playoff bracket with their defensive presence and offensive low-post game to compliment LA.

    Do you remember that LA wanted improvement or to leave... for me Fropez is not improvement and will just let the defense to sag and help on LA.

    Do you guys think this would work? Jj wants more money. Smith wants out of atl. Dh12 wants hou to sign another max player. But according to nbc sports, hou wont even have enough to sign dh12 to a max contract. So here is a proposed trade...

    Portland gets al horford

    Houston gets josh smith, Robin lopez

    Atlanta gets asik, hickson, terrence jones, dontas montejunas, Claver, Freeland, 2014 hou first rounder, 2016 por first rounder and 2 second rounders (we seem to have alot of them)

    Portland gets a c that can play def AND rebound. Atl is letting smith walk anyway, and letting go of horford is hard, but for asik jj and 2 first rounders, i think thats a good deal. Hou will probably have enough to sign smith and dwight. If not, they can give atl more players cause atl has alot of cap space. Seems like all 3 teams would be happy.

    Getting rid of freeland claver and lopez gives us around 9 million more in cap space, plus around 5 mill and 2.something cap exception. Thats about 16 mill. 12 of that goes to horford. Sign dorell wright (hopefully for 3 mill) and oneal for 1 mill a year for 2-3 years. If dorell cant be bought for 3 mill, im fine with not having oneal. Our roster would be


    Pg lillard/cj

    Sg matthews/barton/crabbe

    Sf batum/wright/crabbe

    Pf LA/robinson/oneal

    C horford/leonard/oneal

    This would be a dream...

    Asik said he doesn't want to play with Howard because there simply won't be room.  I can see the Rockets wanting to go after Josh Smith in a S&T with Atlanta, but I don't know how they swing that.  JJ hickson S&T would be the next best option.  Make it happen Olshey.

    My Christmas wish list:

     

    Drop freeland and barton contract and use his 3 mil and remaining cap on Jack or Wright.

    S&T Hickson for Asik.

    Room exception on J. Oniel.

    I would give up T Rob for Asik, and I LOOOOVVEEE T Rob. Don't think Houston would want Lopez and his contract though. They can just get a cheaper backup centre.

    @ DallasTrailBlazersFan, I'm likin' ur v. 2.0 :)  I think THIS 1 COULD actually come to pass; it's realistic, addresses some key needs for all involved, AND it doesn't involve us losing T-Rob!  Hahaha! ;)  T-Rob IS aaaaawwwwwwwesome!!!!  :)

    Atlanta does not want Lin, they are invested in Schroeder and can always bring back Teague if they want considering he is much better than Lin anyways.

    Yeah Lin was a fail. Like the guy, don't hold Linsanity against him, he himself said it pissed him off.
