We all remember the ugly days of Trader Bob. It was like fireworks with all the trades. Your guy has an inch more vertical or another two years experience or more time in re-hab? Deal!
Now we have KP. In KP we trust! Frye is a solid get in moving ZBo out which finished cleaning out the jail blazers. KP snagged us Rudy, Roy and LMA. Bayless looks promising. KP is said to have been on the fence on Durant v Oden. But he has let some veterans like Jones, Jack and Udoka go in favor of making room to develop young talent. How is that working?
Are we too young for our own good? This is the bigger concern behind questions like the Martell and Travis controversy. The third option is neither. Do we need to have veterans to add around Roy/LMA/Rudy? And do we need to focus the team around a tighter rotation? If so, are we in that process? Can you feel it coming together, or are we still looking too much to gamble on young talent? Or is it a gamble. Will we think in a year or two that yes this team was loaded, just waiting to put it all together.
Do the Blazers just have too many project players to count on having a great team come out of the current roster?
Yes. This is reminding me of Trader Bob, but with unproven youth instead of creaky veterans and head cases. (2 votes)
Yes. We need to pare this down to a core team of the best talent. (1 vote)
Yes. This is an obvious train wreck, based on one game against the reigning Western Conference Champions. (3 votes)
No. We have just had a rash of injuries. We will win now, well, very soon. (3 votes)
No. The players are fine, they just need more time. We'll make the playoffs this year and be dangerous. (17 votes)
Yes. We simply need more trades to get the type of probably veteran talent we need. (Suggest your trades below.) (2 votes)
Let's stand pat until near the trading dealine to get a better idea of what we have. (7 votes)
