Having watched these last few games, I has become apparent to me that we are really missing that X-Factor to push us to being a powerful and consistant team. I think we are close enough, with LA as the core of our team we just need to build around his game, and get players that fill in his weaknesses. My question is what is that X-Factor that we are missing? Do you think it is a young and energetic center who can control the boards, or a in control quick point guard who can really be the Blazer's floor general?
I would argue that they need both to even consider moving deep into the playoffs and really challenge the OKC's and Heat of the league. But if we are going to go out and try to move forth, who do you go after first? I would say find that point guard that can really set the tempo and get the team on the right track! I know it has been mentioned, but I think a Rondo would do wonders for the team. Or what about the idea of trying to orchestrate a move for Austin Rivers in the draft?
