1) I am a little worried about our outside shooting. That was a concern last season, one that Nate often reffered to, and it seems like we have gotten rid of all our shooters since then. Blake, Outlaw, Webster, (Rudy) are all out. I doubt Luke B will be able to step in and although wesley made a good % from 3pt (38%) he didn't take too many (2 a game in 25 min.). Compare Wesley's attempts next to Blake, Steve shot more than double the 3's while avg just over 3 more min. a game.
Where is our outside shooting going to come from or is it going to be another year with the same off. weaknesses?
2) I had long thought KP & Co. very smart to draft players playing overseas and to use the foreign leagues as sort of a minor leagues. The players would get a chance to keep developing without taking a roster spot or rotting at the end of the bench not playing. However, I have to wonder if those players are ever going to make it to this side of the Atlantic. I mean, is Koppenen and Freeland ever coming over? Sergio and Rudy looked like great selections at the time but if we get a late first round pick at best for Rudy is that going backwards? And if Rudy was the stud in Spain is Victor going to be able to crack our rotation in a few years... assuming he comes over?
As a whole, were our foreign draft picks a bust or a smart move by the Blazers?
One last question, (I know I put 2 in the title) I am in Indy on vacation, anyone know if Greg is in p-town or Indy right now?
