    After losing to Lithuania in the 1st round, France dismantled them 80-66 in the gold medal game.

    Batum: 17 pts 6 reb 1 ast 1 stl 1 blk 1 to +18

     

    The BRoy:Parker as Batum:Batum could not have been more apperent than in this game: a dominate play maker in the game (parker), and worse, less than ideal tallent on the roster (everyone but parker and batum), what happens when that playmaker isn’t on the court dominating the ball like BRoy in a Nate McMillian “scheme”? Even with Nic in foul trouble last game an OT win vs Spain, he wasn’t on the court without Parker really, and was still +10 making a clutch defensive play virtually every trip down the court in the final 6 minutes. Against Lithuania, there was enough time with each player on the court by themselves with somewhat decent competition, revealing a stark contrast.

     

    If this doesn’t confirm for Blazer fans that Batum is much more than a role player and a important piece to the Blazer puzzle, then God have mercey on your soul. I will pray for you, because it’s Sunday after all. ; ) It’s not that he has a “good” game vs a “bad” game, it’s what he actually does filling in whereever the team/coach needs him. Sure, he can struggle with shooting at times, and that can be frustrating, but he does so much more that one cannot simply overlook without shooting an objective analysis in the foot.

     

    Batum is a Blazer, and it’s a great day to be a Blazer fan.

    Yes! Victor's game was on too early for me. Apparently, he did really well. His most complete game of the Euro tourney imo. They blew Croatia outta the gym 92-66.

    16pts 6 reb 1 ast 3 blks 1 to +24

    Hopefully, he's only going to get better. I like it a lot.

    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...
