    Center is and for a very long time has been our biggest need. It HAS to be addressed if we are going to get anywhere and I think Meyers will be an excellent backup in a few years but I don't see him being a dominant starter for a playoff team.

    That said, look at the 2013 Free Agents. Do ...

  2. The Let's Play GM Thread

    As painful as they are to watch, I think we need to be patient with Freeland and Claver. The NBA is a tough adjustment and they are putting in the effort, they're just confused on the court and that can be fixed with a full season of experience and a summer to adjust their game to what they lear...

  3. While wing players shine, Alridge embaresses himself

    posted by jonthorpe on 01/11/13 at 10:51 PM / Posted in: Trail Blazers Talk

    Friday's game against the Warriors was rough, but it wasn't as rough on anyone as it was on Aldridge. While Lillard, Matthews, Batum, Babbitt, and Jared Jeffries of all people dug deep to rally in the fourth quarter one player directly helped Golden State win that game: Lamarcus Aldridge. Throug...

  4. BATUM offered $45-50 mil for 4 years from TWolves

    My point was Wesley isnt familiar with guarding that position on a nightly basis. SF are generally much more physical and while Wesley looks like a decent defender against guards, he wouldnt be able to contain even mediocre SFs, he doesnt have the size.

  5. Free Agency Thread *Blazers Match Batum*

    posted by jonthorpe on 07/01/12 at 12:39 AM / Posted in: Trail Blazers Talk

    Hill is a very underrated PG. Love his maturity, composure, and IQ.

    How much influence do you think a player's desires have in the restricted free agency situation. Hypothetically if Hibbert's agent went to Kevin Pritchard and said he really wanted to go to Portland and didnt wa...

  6. 2012 roster .

    Diebler is definitely a SG and the reason they sent him to Europe was because he couldnt play enough defense even for a bench player. As talked about on other posts, Jeff Green and Alonzo Gee seem like reasonable options

  7. Team Rankings- The Off-Season Guide

    Alonzo Gee!!! But he is highly coveted by Cleveland from what I have read. They already made a generous offer to keep him.

  8. Predict Who we will have and not have?!

    posted by jonthorpe on 07/01/12 at 10:48 AM / Posted in: Trail Blazers Talk

    JJ's status entirely depends on Freeland and Claver. Period. And Batum, I would be sick if we matched Minnesota's offer. That is way too much for a Shane Battier level player. Somebody who will never be an All-Star should not make more than 12mil, especially at a position like SF where you can almo...

  9. MAX Deal for Hibbert?

    posted by jonthorpe on 07/01/12 at 9:38 AM / Posted in: Trail Blazers Talk

    The reports made it seem like Hibbert was siding with Portland not the other team. I think its us or the Pacers. At least from how I read in between the lines

  10. We'll miss Waiters

    posted by jonthorpe on 06/28/12 at 9:42 PM / Posted in: Trail Blazers Talk

    Carmelo Anthony is the only current Syracuse player that has done well in the NBA. The rest have been absolute busts. And their coach hasnt changed in all those years. There's something about Syracuse players and I am glad we didnt take the risk of drafting one.
