Getting the final pieces of the puzzle

With the signing of Camby, I really feel that we nearly have the all the parts we need for the Championship push. Some young blood, with the veteran leadership. But I feel that there are a few elements missing, that would really make the rest of the league fear the idea of playing the Blazer.

 5: Center is looking pretty nice with Oden/Camby

4: Power Forward is pretty solid with Aldridge/Camby/Pendy/Howard

3: Small Forward not too bad with Batum/ Back up needed/Cunningham

2: Shooting Guard is one of our strongest BRoy/ Bayless

1: Point Guard we have Miller/Back up needed

 

Expendables:

Rudy (Isnt happy behind Roy, and isn't bringing the bang of the bench we need)

Martell (I love Marty, but the guy just isn't constant enough. One game he give you 20+ next 3.)

Prytzy (Don't know what the time table is looking like for him, but Camby brings more than Prytz does. More offense and more veteran knowledge. Never saw the Blazers tapping the ball out before Camby came along)

 

I feel that we need a strong/reliable Small Forward to back up Batum. Cunningham has the potential, but needs his jumper to be more consistent, and needs to work on his three. Unless this happens over the summer (which is a definite possibility), but if not then draft or trade. I dont see Bayless as our point guard of the future, when he has really excelled is when he subs in for BRoy, so I can see him in a backup role for BRoy more than Miller. Miller is of course the starting point guard, but we need a young PG to back him up and to take over when Miller steps down. Darren Collison comes to mind, NO has a young Chris Paul, and Collison has proven he has leadership qualities.

 

What does everyone think? Who do we need to add?
