i thin it's a great trade but now the blazers only have one legit center and that's camby...and he's straight glass. the blazers have no other big guys unless they play aldrige at the 1 which wouldnt be good since he really doesnt like to bang but has to at times. with all the minutes he's playing who knows he may get injured if he plays the 1 all the time. I dont know how this small ball is going to work especially defensevely. Mcmillan has some work on his hands....i'm reall curious to see his rotation when Wallace gets here.
First, Aldridge has been a beast in the paint this season and the one its point guard, center is the five. The Blazers have one of the best 8 man rotations in the NBA if Camby is healthy and Brandon is at least 75% of what he was...maybe even 60%. Rich Cho has fine a great job putting hard defensive minded guys around the perimeter and getting guys to take the burden off the two stars of the team.
