The biggest thing that people have been talking about the Blazers missing last season was that tough guy outside Joel who is willing to take and ejection, fine or maybe a small suspension to pump up his team and will stick up for his team mates. Without question he would be a fan favorite here but I think we and the Blazers are overlooking the intangibles Kyrptonate could bring to this team.

But it doesn't make sense position wise for us. We are jammed packed at the G positions. It would only make sense if he was getting Outlaw's minutes at SF, but Nate obviously can't do that. Bayless will supply us with the attitude and toughness we need from a guard at least by his 3rd year, if not his 2nd.
