Shouldn't Barton think about protective sleeve guards?

    I've mentioned this in chats before but undersized slashers and rebounders get clocked by big vets alot in the paint. Would't it be in the best interest of the team to suggest sleeve braces for thighs, elbows, ankles, etc? Iverson is my example. He bounced off some of the biggest centers in the modern game and stayed on the court. He might have looked like the Mummy but it worked!

    Barton should look into getting all the " Under Armour " he can.

    Funny how I tried to mention this in the media day interviews and Casey practically scoffed at my question!!! Made it sound like any fan in the know wouldn't be sayin that to Barton... Casey, we just want to protect our players! You wear a helmet and pads if you ride a bike or go skating and on average there's a LOT more day-to-day impact in basketball! Just sayin :P

    If I was a Blazer coach, I'd put pads on every limb and joint that is paddable. Yes, we'd look more like the Winterhawks, but I'd feel better about the on court collisions at least.

    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...
