wow, I thought the Blazers had potential this season, but when I saw them let Lebron just stroll in the lane to win it in the last seconds... it gave me some real doubts about their youth and their knowledge of how to win tough games.

Potential for what? They have a solid chance of making the playoffs this year which is a huge step forward. Remember this season was supposed to be a complete bust after losing their hyped up #1 pick to knee injury.

Theoretically when Oden is in the mix next season their trouble protecting the paint should take care of itself.

i agree. they wont win every game but they are just on the come up as of now. fighting for a playoff spot shows promise by itself. lets hope they dont fizzle down the stretch, lots of basketball to be played.
and with bron, he does that to any team, not just the blazers. like bomber said they should improve with oden concentrating on defense.

oh yea and for you roy for mvp chanters...like steven a. said last night.."lets not get ahead of yourselves with the roy for mvp talk"

i think its become a staple for every home team to chant "MVP" whenever their best player is at the free throw line. the suns do it with nash, we do it with kobe, the cavs do it with lebron, etc.

alright portland trailblazer expert here. I gurantee that, that trade never happens. We have Kevin Pritchard a lock for general manager of the year. Why would we trade three young players with great potential that get tons of minutes for devin harris. We don"t need point guard help. We have tons of guards, and thats not our issue. It is basolutely ridculous.

Oh btw... Frye has played way better here then in NY. I read the Oregonian sports section 2 weeks ago and they interviewed Frye. He said that when he was traded from Ny it felt liek he was being "freed'. He hated there and he is playing great here. I might get his autograph tonight. Not oging down count on it

im tryna to get tickets for the lake show here against miami..i know it will be a blow out, but i still wanna attend lol..that warrior game will be so good, the warriors are very underrated and b diddy is hella good, he should of made the all star game imo.
Feb 01, 2008 @ 17:00
Whoa that's crazy for the Lakers.. though what if there were some good draft picks

Good picks? as in the positioning of the picks? if so then i doubt it. We're talking about Kobe, an improving Bynum, Gasol, and Odom in the coming years. They will receive an 08 pick which will be at best 24-29. The second 1st round pick would be around that same number as before primarily because of a better chemistry between the players. As for players, there's always going to be the what ifs when it comes to the draft but hey, obtaining a 7 footer capable of putting up 20/10 is worth the risk.
Feb 02, 2008 @ 01:06
Phil Jackson never plays rookies/2nd year players anyway. Remember....it took a Kwame Brown injury for Bynum to even get reasonable minutes this year. So trading away draft picks....who cares?


agree, i think bynum would of gotten more mins regardless seeing how unproductive brown was on the offensive end. and jordan farmar got some serious playing time last year, but i think it was only because of the lack of production from the pg position (cough cough, should got jkidd last year)
Feb 02, 2008 @ 01:15
blazers won again, booyah

spurs,mavs,suns should be shitting themself. lakers+celtics= highest rated finals ever.
Feb 04, 2008 @ 23:47
AI still got it smokeyface

edit: im happy for the Lakers and fans, they finally got somethin legit to be excited about. They will definitely benefit from Pau. The talent level is definitely there, but now, they gotta figure out how to mesh together and play as a team. Now, if the Rockets would do something bout Steve Francis....
Feb 05, 2008 @ 10:05
Steve Francis' career is over. I have seen few players fall as fast from their prime to nothing in such a short amount of time, especially without major injury.
Feb 05, 2008 @ 15:28
i can't wait to watch the lakers tonight against the nets, im glad i got nba tv.
Feb 05, 2008 @ 20:37
Washington lost to Philly tonight.... that's just fucking unbelievable. We really need to get Caron healthy and Gilbert to hopefully come back by the end of the month, we're dying right now.
