Bill Simmons likes the Wallace trade

7

Relevant section from the Trade Grades article: "Meanwhile, Portland stumbled into a frontline of Marcus Camby, LaMarcus Aldridge (playing out of his freaking mind), Wallace and Nicolas Batum. Super-duper intriguing, especially from a rebounding standpoint: Camby and Wallace crash the boards as well as anyone at their positions. If Brandon Roy gives them anything, wouldn't Portland be lurking as a late bloomer this spring? Portland's crunch-time scorer (Aldridge) is playing as well as anyone in the West right now. You're telling me you'd want to play a Game 6 in Portland down 3-2? And besides, isn't the West totally up for grabs or am I crazy? It's about time MJ did something nice for Portland -- he's been haunting them for three decades much like Stevie Nicks haunted Lindsay Buckingham."
