    I'm with Canzano(maybe for the first time) on this issue. Why can't we have that kind of a team in Portland. I think one of the reasons you don't see a lot of cutting and movement is that we haven't had the personnel for it. Not the wings but the pg's and the bigs. We haven't had a pg who can make entry passes, save for dre but we all know he wasn't allowed to actually play his game, and LA isn't very good at passing out of the post. When a wing throws it in to him and then cuts under the rim LA always hold onto the ball. Other than Roy I can't really remember anyone playing the give and go with LA. My complaint about our offense has always been its monotony. Now it's LA's turn to score, now we're going to go through Jamaal. It reminds me too much of Jerry Sloan or Larry Brown system. Players today don't want to play in those offenses. This is why we need a defensive minded coach with a good offense. Like SVG, Flip Saunders or Brian Shaw. My only knock on Batum, other than letting his agent run his mouth, is that he should have been saying this stuff all year not just in free agency.
    I am a fan of close games.

    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...
