Default Re: Is it just me or is this basically what every Portland fan believe/hope?

I'm with Toizumi that there is a big difference between believe and hope. I hope the Blazers win the championship this year and every year, but I don't believe it will happen.

I believe this has a good chance of happening and I certainly hope it happens.

I would like this to happen, but I don't believe it will and I'm not overly hopeful about it. Instead, I believe that Batum could be a more athletic Shane Battier that could be better off the dribble.

I don't believe this will happen. I hope Aldridge can get more aggressive down low on offense and defense, but I don't think he will ever be as good as Pau or play like him (he is just too perimeter oriented)

I think it is more possible that it will be Miller and Przybilla, and it is more likely that only 1 gets traded.

The first half of the statement already seems true, and the second part I think depends on the first point quoted.
