    Does anyone know why Joel Freeland isn't ranked in the NBA ranking on ESPN?

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/page/nbarank-por-2012/2012-nba-player-rankings-portland-trail-blazers

    Is he just not good enough for top 500 or is he too good to be ranked yet or have they just forgotten about him?  Let me know your thoughts or if you know why.

    I"m starting to think the ESPN guys are on the take from the vegas bookies. They set up the odds before the first tipoff. They rank guys that have never played a real NBA game. It's a setup. That or they just really don't like the Brits!

    Rankings are for people who can't evaluate talent for themselves usually made by people with no NBA experience.

    SO many claimers in sports talk shows... just a bunch of bar room jarble IMO

    of course a Freeland is top 500.... NBA players from the Olympics had great things to say about his post defense, variety of very solid post moves, and of course 3 point range.

    Consider the source, if they are not using a qualified source like players, gms, or coaches to make their assessment, they have no valid journalism assessment, just another bar room jarble opinion like most people behind a mic.

    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.

     

    Thank God they are 19 games over 500.  Mayb...

    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...
