    okay. i think both these guys are going to be big time players in the NBA. i really really want both of them but have accepted we will probably only get one.  i am totally stuck as to who i would rather have. i'm almost leaning waiters though. the guy is nasty. i would be interested to hear perspectives and opinions on who the better player will be.  i know we are more in need of a PG than a SG so forget about that. let's just focus on the player regardless of need. i have a pretty good feeling one of these guys will be a blazer tomorrow.

    I think Waiters is the better player, make the transition to the NBA quicker, and has more potential. Lillard would just fill a need Portland has to have.

    Personally I would rather see Portland pass on both and trade up to get MKG, Barnes, or Beal.

    After watching Waiter play he reminds me of Jamal Crawford. I don't want any more Ball chuckers.

    Lillard he can and will score the ball at a high level. Im not saying waiters wont but they both can and we are in more need of a pg. I also dont think we need another 2 because i think ewill could be very good and of course  we have wes.

    John Thompson the III and Greg Anthony are talking about Waiters now on NBA network and they're saying exactly what I been saying, that he's a strong guard, he'll attack, has a motor, gets to the hoop, he involves his teammates.  

    sug makes a good point and that's why I don't really want portland to take a SG in the draft; there's more pressing needs, but if the choice is really coming down to Lillard and Waiters, I want Waiters.  I actually think Waiters does a better job of involving other teammates, even tho he's not a point guard, he is good with the ball.  Plus he's as aggressive going to the hoop as Lillard and he's stronger.  As far as what I know about them defensively, Lillard has been lit up; he's no shut down defender.  As a 6-2 PG with long arms, he can get up in someone's face, but he's not a strong guy.  Waiters' strength allows him to put a body on guys.  I do think Waiters has an NBA frame and he's going to handle the rigors of the NBA.  I'm on the same side of the fence as Thompson III and Boeheim.

    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...
