I'm going to be honest, I really thought this would be Batum's breakout season. Yea he had a couple of really awesome games... but overall he has been playing at a much lower level then I expected. Now that Lamarcus is out indefinitely my bet is the rest of the season, is it time for Batum to step up? Honestly, if Batum's number don't increase after Lamarcus leaves either he isn't being assertive, he's hurt too, or Canales doesn't run enough plays for him. Maybe its a mix of all, but seriously for me personally, it's now or never for Batum for me. It's seriously the most perfect time for him to shine and really prove to everyone why we love him so much.
Don't get me wrong though, I love Batum. He's my favorite current Blazer to be honest, but even still I'm been so disappointed in the way he's been performing.
What are your guys thoughts?
