    We could have a team full of potential disappointments. I know its hard for some of us fans to realize this and I'm not saying it is true but I am also saying if it happens don't be too shocked. LaMarcus has not shown us he can dominate a game from start to finish, he is still too soft. TOO SOFT! He still is only a shooting big man, and when he gets the ball and begins his move in the post he is extremely predictable. He needs to become a better passer with better awareness and tougher. (this is all going to improve but just how much is the question). Hes a great player no doubt, but hes no all-star just yet. Maybe the light will go on later down the road this season, but he is a ways away from being an all-star. He doesnt have the swagger or the toughness of one. Oden I still have hope for, I don't have high expectations for him this season, I am just hoping for a game where he drops 30 and can be a force throughout the whole game instead of just showing 1 or 2 flashes of being good every once in a while. Hes still very clumsy and his moves even when successful are difficult to watch. The part that really makes me uneasy is the fact that forwards can out rebound him and muscle the ball out of his hands... and he gets rejected by much smaller defenders. Rudy needs to play more... seriously WTF hes so much better than martell. He sparks our offense, he leads the nba off the bench in steals and he is shooting the best % on the team. Martell... he is the biggest disappointment on the blazers by far. Batum as a rookie who isnt even supposed to be a good shooter has a better career shooting % than martell. Martells rookie season was his worst shooting season. Martell cant hit an open 3 for the life of him and if he cant do that he is pretty much worthless. Some say he can play defense and sure he shows flashes, but come on he cant stop anybody with a name. Maybe he has a good game against Durant or maybe durant has a bad game against the blazers, im pretty sure he could torch martell 9 times out of 10. I would cut martell from the team for nothing before I traded batum. Batum missing is huge because it makes me realize how much martell doesn't help our team. He had 1 good quarter in his life and everyone thinks he is going to be amazing. The part that really bugs me about martell is that has all the tools to be an amazing player. Maybe hes a headcase or something but he has never been good for us. I'm disappointed with our start to the season. I know I'm going to get bashed for bashing some of the blazers but seriously... it is all true.

    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...
