    Quick is all over the place lately...just heard him say on The Game that the Blazers are looking at another deal that could be announced in the next few days. Quick says Rudy's trade is only #2 on Cho's to-do list.

    Welcome to your new job Mr. Cho! He is hitting the ground running. Dare I say, busiest offseason ever? Any ideas on what Cho could be working on? Any ideas on what this deal might be?

    Whatever Cho has cookin the front office i hope it doesn't have anything 2 do with gettin CP3. i know every 1 would luv 2 c him here and so would i but its just not worth it hear me out. Theres is no way of telling he is not gonna just up and bounce on RIP CITY after his 2 year contract expires witch i think he will the reason why is he has stated that he wants to join the Knicks along side Anthony and i believe that will be his final and ultimate destination. Also the new CBA 2011 2012 will more than likely cause a NBA lockout so that would mean we would have him for 1 good year of ball and also it would more than likely eat into our core 4 to acquire him either Roy, Batum, LMA, or Oden along with expiring contracts and a couple good young guys. So is it realy worth the risk to get CP3 here for i good year of ball i say no some has to agree with me on that

    There is also no way of telling whether he wont leave. It goes both ways. But our track record shows that once a player comes here and plays for us they fall in love with the city.

    ok lets say we get CP3 in the trade that ive posted in like 3 of these boards we would have the best starting 5 and very solid bench we would be the team to beat with CP3 in the west and guys are right too once you come to oregon you dont want to leave CP3 would have a championship team espicially if oden becomes that monster that we all saw flashes of last year. Portland is very lucky because if CP3 wants a big maxed contract to sta with us um mr moneybags old Paul Allen has that in his wallet no one can saw that portland needed one guy last year you could see it they had ringes where it looked you couldnt outscore portland but then the offensive would stall and roy would jamed and the offense wouldnt do anything for long streches really do you think a offense guided by the best PG the league has ever seen and B-roy alone that would win you many games no add a healthy oden and ever improving batum and lamarcus 60 games in the win colum i gurantee you it we need paul this is the moment that portland has been waiting for NO needs money and are really hurting portland has young talent and could take some of those rotten contracts and get some good young talent out of this deal and we get paul and okafor my trade works and both sides get the most bang for there buck offer them draft picks but im telling try and keep batum if at all possible but if we have to for paul i would do it portland wants a championship Paul Allen wants a championship lets stop thinking about always have young talent and lets go out and get the guy that could bring us up and bring that up.

    I agree about the track record of falling in love with our city and fans but the HEAT changed everythin its all about the big three now and CP3 i truly believe wants that in NY with Amare and Carmelo  it woould b great if he would stay i just think its 2 big of a gamble. Trading Batum for CP3 would result in the same mistake as trading Jermain all those years ago he would b another one the blazers let get away unless they r really crazy about Rudy i think it takes Batum 2 get CP3 here

    i dont think it would take batum and Jermain situation was completely different we had Jermain he tore up Rasheed Wallace during pratice and was patient but couldnt figure out why he didnt get more playin time but honestly you make that trade i swear the blazers are the best in the west miami would have there hands full i mean who does miami have at center if greg oden is what he was last year before that injury do really think that juwan howard or whoever they have will be able to oden there washed up guys that dont have a chance and if we do my trade that i was thinking of then emakea okafor would match up on bosh when oden comes out CP3 wouldnt leave we would have the best team in the west we would make the finals every year with paul and roy in the same backcourt and i dont believe it would take batum to get him. even if it does then you lose a defender for the best PG thats why you have guys like babbit and matthews they can defend and guard as well and you still have paul roy matthews lamarcus oden you still have guys that can score and shoot lights out paul wouldnt go to a team win games and everything and just leave it wouldnt happen paul wants more then paul allen can make that happen he would be on the best team in the west so why would he leave to the knicks who out of amare and lee they have nothing else. even if they carmalo you have 2 superstars and lee is not a superstar his stats are inflated hes on a run and gun team and they dont have anyone else that can score not saying lee cant play some ball cause he can but in Mikes system stats do get inflated so why would CP3 leave he is with the number one team in the west if he wants more money he will get all the money he wants paul allen has that covered CP3 wouldnt leave hes surrounded by talent and there are young so why would he leave its not logical.

    If he didn't want to be here he wouldn't have said he did. Bottom line is he wants to be on a good team. If we get him and can make at least legitimate playoff runs without getting blown out first round then Chris Paul will stay.

    im with andy but with roy and paul in the same backcourt with a major helper in lamarcus then you wouldnt get blown out in the first round in fact you would probley be the team to beat in the west and if paul wants to win like he says he does then portland would be the perfect fit.

    Portland needs to see whats up with one of the remaining superstars in free agency, if the CP3 deal goes sour maybe looking into Iverson. Perhaps snagging someone like him TMac or hell even SHAQ, grabbing one of them just for a year if thats all thats left in em, maybe its the motivation this team needs to get championship bound. Because as Portland sits over here and debates about who to keep, and who to play where, the rest of the teams in the NBA are stacking their rosters, and deep. I would like to see Portland maybe get one trade in before the season, the change could be good, "and like Barack O Bama says its time for a change" - Juicy J

    if no deal goes through for a top notch PG & it was up to me. i'd sign iverson(if he was in tip top shape & looked good in practice/scrimmage) to a 1 yr deal with a 1 yr team option and play him at his natural position PG!!! even if we only use him as a back up PG... and end up keeping andre miller, iverson could come off the bench and play the point and spread the floor... if he is healthy we all know iverson is 1 of thee most gifted players in the league. the guy can put up numbers... and if we happen to have to trade batum i wouldn't mind taking a look at mcgrady... he still has plenty left in the tank. he is perfect for nates scheme too. now this would allllllllllllllllllllll dependdddddd on how many players will end up still having on the roster when the season begins if we make no trades and we stay as is and plan to keep this team intact then i don't see us making any signings really. frankly im surprised no 1 has taken a serious look at iverson or mcgrady yet(though bulls might sign him soon)...

    I would agree, 1 year deal, and if it were to come down to either TMac or Iverson, like the article said it would require one of the players to swallow some pride and share a position, in order to play on a great team.

    Ignoring history is the first step to repeating it, only person vouching for Iverson right now is Larry brown, yet he doesn't him on his own squad, but at least that's more than Mcgrady has going for him at the moment. Were getting rid of one second unit player (Rudy) who has dreams of grandeur, let's not replace it with another second unit player who not only has the dreams, but has the lingering taste of grandeur. Iverson and Mcgrady wouldn't be good enough to start on this team, and both have proven through actions and words that is what they would want, even if they don't say so in the meetings to get signed. We won't get dooped like Memphis did last year, because we aren't as desperate as a team with Mike Conley as your starting Pg.

    im just saying they are options.... iverson right now as a pg has more skills than andre in my opinion not to mention he always gets alot of steals as well. mcgrady has more skills offensively than batum in my opinion. i'm not saying get both of them.... i'm saying "IF" we make some major moves/trades and there is a void left 1 of these players can certainly fill them. everybody talks about how we should keep andre if we can't get paul well we all saw how that ended last year. he looked horrible in the playoffs. he had 1 good game where he put up 52(ballhogged) points and everybody wants to anoint him a great pg ever since. no no no, he might be smart in some ways but his flaws outweigh the good. he simply is not the answer & has not been the answer for his whole career. there is a reason why he has barely even sniffed the playoffs... he is a liabilty. not to mention he is about as slow as a mule. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET THE ONLY REASON WHY WE SIGNED HIM IS BECAUSE HE WAS OUR LAST OPTION-THE ONLY REASON HE SIGNED HERE IS BECAUSE WE WERE HIS ONLY OPTION!  he never truly wanted to come here he just took the money while he could... right now at this point in his career he is really no more than a back up.

    first of all, Lee is in Golden State now, not NY. Mello wants to go to NY and play with Amare and CP3 said he wanted to play with those guys. Now, he also threw Portland in there because he IS friends with B Roy as well. I think I also heard that CP3 is an avid fisherman. On the first day off from training camp, someone needs to take this guy to the Deschutes with a flyrod and a guide. To heck with a Louisiana bass Paul. Wait until you catch an Oregon Native Steelhead. Infact, if they get this deal done, call up Channing Frye and have him take Paul to his favorite spots in Oregon. Then charter a boat and take him out from Depoe Bay. Run him up to the lakes on Mt. Hood. Take him fishing where ever there are fish so he can see that Oregon can offer him essentially his chioice in destinations. Mountains, Beach, Dessert, City Life, Farmland, Waterfalls, whatever you're looking for Oregon has it.

    CAUTION: NERD WARNING!
    What you are about to read may be one of the nerdiest comments posted on this message board in recent memory. With Paul Allen as the owner of the Blazers though, it has to be said....
    Wouldn't it be hillarious if Chris Paul did come to Portland and it was suggested to him that he change his number to 30. Then he could be C-P-3-0. GET IT! Instead of C3P0 from Starwars! HA! It would be AWESOME!

    I strongly disagree with you, Iverson is a year older than andre miller, and in that matchup i would place it all on Allen, not Andre.

    Oh, and i feel if CP3 turned into CP30, George Lucas would press charges. He is the one behind the "Droid" phone, if he owns the concept of a droid, imagine what he'll do if we go after the Golden Robots Name.

    miller > iverson. Iverson used to do one thing well. Score. Bc he used to be able to score, it put pressure on defenses to focus on him and then he would kick out to open teammates who would knock down their shots. Which meant his assists went up. His scoring ability relied heavily on his speed and athleticism. At his current age, he no longer has the speed and athleticism he used to have.

    Iverson is a certain type of pg. A scoring pg. And Miller is more of a pure Pg. Miller might not win a one-on-one game against iverson but miller is more useful/efficient with our current blazer roster. And i haven't even started talking about Iverson's ego. He'd bring down the morale bc the youngsters would be afraid to step on his toes since he was a former all star. chemistry is key.

    Iverson would surely bring the morale of the team down and we don't need him on the team.  All of these pgs are going to be good with our roster it just depends on their feelings on their roles with our team, however, Miller is one of the best post-up PG's in the NBA and it helps on almost any pg that isn't named Jason Kidd.  PG's generally don't have good post-up defense and that's where miller excels, at backing guards under the hoop.

    andre hasn't done crap (mod edit- watch the language) his whole career but miss open jumpers... he is this teams weak link. and if we keep him another year then it'll just be another year that we lose. yeh he passes well, so what thats all he can do is pass because other than that he has no skill set. personally i wouldn't want a.i or a.m here if it was my choice. as far as people saying philly is horrible since they got rid or andre? no they were horrible even with andre thats the reason they got rid of him. as far as them being horrible with a.i... what did he play a whole 5 games with them? before he took a leave of absence due to his troubled life at the moment. his daughter was dying, he wife was divorcing him so he turned to alcohol and gambling to deal with his pain... he hit rock bottom, i been there trust me it happens sometimes life is to much to deal. but he has his life together now he'll get a well deserved chance somewhere. but i wouldn't be surprised if plays oversea's might get a better payday.

    That is absolutely a rediculous statement. Miller did a TON for the Blazers this year. I'm not saying that you don't use him as a piece to get a better PG, but you certainly shouldn't discredit his play in Portland.

    While I respect the obvious passion with which you express yourself, I also have to ask that you refrain from the vulgar language on this site as it is open and accessible to all ages. 

    I too, have to disagree.  Andre saved the season for the Blazers.  For most of the season, he was our only low post presence offensively...and at PG!  That speaks volumes in terms of what our team had to overcome to finish with the record they did.  Dre was as much responsible as any other Blazer.  I would take Dre's lay-ups over a good shooters 16 footer any day.  He was a warrior

    I agree. It was Andre's and Howard work that earned Portland 50 victories last year. I love Millers drive to push the ball up the court. I hate the slow grind it out and hope PDX can hit a 30' bucket as the shot clock expires approach. We need another year of Miller and or CP3 type of player to inspire these guys to run.

    andre hasn't done crap (mod edit- watch the language) his whole career but miss open jumpers... he is this teams weak link. and if we keep him another year then it'll just be another year that we lose. yeh he passes well, so what thats all he can do is pass because other than that he has no skill set. personally i wouldn't want a.i or a.m here if it was my choice. as far as people saying philly is horrible since they got rid or andre? no they were horrible even with andre thats the reason they got rid of him. as far as them being horrible with a.i... what did he play a whole 5 games with them? before he took a leave of absence due to his troubled life at the moment. his daughter was dying, he wife was divorcing him so he turned to alcohol and gambling to deal with his pain... he hit rock bottom, i been there trust me it happens sometimes life is to much to deal. but he has his life together now he'll get a well deserved chance somewhere. but i wouldn't be surprised if plays oversea's might get a better payday.

    I just don't buy this reasoning. Andre took a terrible Philly team to a 6 game series with a Magic team who made it to the Finals in 09 and look how well Philly did this year with the same team just without Miller in their lineup. Also, how many of his jumpers were attempts to just beat the shot clock after one of his teammates passed him the ball with little time remaining to shoot. Not his fault.

    he is a smart vet pg. but he is no threat at all so its easy for teams to double up on l.a , oden, camby or whoever is in the post. they are not worried about andre hitting a J when its kicked back out to him. he might make 1 out of every 60 shots he takes. he is good down low in the post for a pg. he lacks defense. he lacks perimeter range. truth is he is more of a back up pg now at this point in his career. i'm not saying he is the worse pg, but he certainly is not near the best of them. but if he is all we can get this yr i guess we'll have to settle and accept it =/ again.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    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...
