yyyyyeah well the thing abt tht is JO shouldnt be traded this season. IFF he is traded then tht should be in the offseason with sign and trades. tht way salaries will match better. the guy has heart. he gives the effort and plays hard. i wouldnt give him up unless it was really worth it.
and dont forget...blazers dont just have Oden to worry abt. they have Aldridge too. and there is a big difference between mentoring and coaching. JO will basically take them under his wing. they will learn on the spot, hands on. not just being told wht to do. sometimes you gota bite the bullet even if it costs you 23 million just cuz its a future investment. those 2 will cost them 30 million per season in a few years anyway.
