why is everyone so eager to trade batum? if anyone is to be traded it is miller, rudy, and maybe wallace. Batum is a young rising star. he is only 22 people! he's a smart player who plays lock down D, drains threes and ocassionally posterize someone (Pau Gasol haha TWICE), and will stuff you if you try to score on him. last season portland kept getting offers for him but kept turning them down. in fact teams were bugging them so much that Portland told everyone that Batum is untouchable and the only way portland trades him is for a player like lebron status. not for a stupid draft pick. miller is ancient and can't shoot, portland needs to trade him for a point guard that can shoot. someone that roy and wesley can kick the ball out to.
