Ok, so all this FA talk has got me thinking, and I'm sure a lot of you, that we should go ahead and package some of our pieces together and make a move for CP3. Some are for it, some are against it, some are so thoroughly attached to our 2 movable pieces(Oden and Batum) to even fathom the idea. I on the other hand I think we apsolutely need to pull the trigger maybe include Rudy in the deal and land our prized PG to take us the promise land.
All the activity in this east shows that most signs point to a dynamic trio forming somewhere (not known yet) that will be able to dominate for years to come. Our current starting 5 will not be able to beat this team in the finals. Sure we could make it out of the West one of these years but beating a James, Wade, Bosh trio + whoever will be next to impossible with only one current all star on our squad. Package Batum with whoever (besides our untouchables) and get this done!
Now is the time to get Paul before he gets healthy again next season and reminds everyone why he is by far and away the best PG in the league. NO will remember that they can't let him go by any means, as he is their franchise. We need to get him now before the window is closed. I would apsolutely love to see the Blazers roster next season look like the following:
PG-Chris Paul - Armon Johnson - Jordan Farmar (FA)
SG-Brandon Roy - Rudy Fernandez - Elliott Williams
SF- Luol Deng (trade) - Luke Babbit
PF-LaMarcus Aldridge - Emeka Okafor
C- Greg Oden- Marcus Camby - Emeka Okafor
Who's with me?
