Bowers: J.J. Hickson "Would Love To Re-Sign" With Blazers

60
Brendan Bowers of SlamOnline.com has an interview with Portland Trail Blazers forward J.J. Hickson, in which he talks about his developing relationship with interim coach Kaleb Canales and expresses a desire to return to Portland in 2012-2013. --------------------------------- We all know what kind of player LaMarcus is, and I just think I can help us compliment each other’s games by me doing the dirty work. I feel like I can help inside by hitting the glass, attacking the rim, and that kind of thing, to take pressure off him that way, and that’s what I tried to do when we were on the court together. As far as him being out now, I’m not going to change that approach to my game. Coach Kaleb told me he loves what I’m doing, and he’s been satisfied with my play as of late, so I’m going to keep doing that. I think I bring something that we don’t have, that’s to get into the paint and do all the dirty work, so I’m just trying to make the most of my opportunity, maximize my minutes, and do everything I can individually to help our team win. ... Of course, I would love it. I’ve been getting some positive feedback from Coach, and from the organization as a whole, and I would love to re-sign here. As far as the guys on the court, as far as my teammates go, we all like each other off the court and we all get along too. Guys hang out off the court, and I think that builds a chemistry that leads to winning basketball. So I would love to come back here, continue to be a Portland Trail Blazer, and help be part of something special that we’re building here. --------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
