B-Roy lacks off the ball movement skills and adding Andre Miller takes the ball out of Roy's hands and forces Roy to probably get less shots and he will be less effective.

OK. That's basically what I thought was coming. What are the chances you start running more? Portland is a young team that could really enjoy the break when it is a good decision, and now you have that decision maker without giving up much in the half court.

Roy will still get his play calls, right? When his number gets called, he's going to have the ball in his hands. The new roster might help reduce turnovers/ Roy might be slightly less effective just from the volume of ball owning time, but the rest of the team is really going to benefit from Andre's set-ups. You could really use a spot up, weak side shooter though.

The bench is more fitted for a running style than the starters. Aldridge and Miller can get up the floor but Webster is a spot up shooter, Roy is more effective in the half court and Przybilla gets gassed quick.

Maybe Blake will start and Miller will work with the second unit?

How good is Miller at pick and rolls? I want to see Aldridge and Oden work with a PG that can do them well. Blake made some nice pick and rolls with Oden, and I certainly don't consider Blake all too great at it.

If the Blazers get Lee, they wouldn't have learned from their talent stockpiling ways of the past.

The Lakers, Spurs, and possibly Nuggets are still better than the Blazers. In the long run, that's all that matters.

If Portland manages to turn Outlaw + Rudy + Bayless into a top tier SF then watch out.

Rudy isn't going anywhere other than possibly the Blazers starting line up.

They're very content with the team currently so the great chemistry remains intact. Also, melo, jr, and nene will only get better. Remember though, every big asset that Denver has acquired has come in November/December, so they're in no rush.

Billups>Miller (Only because Billups scoring)
Smith<Roy
Anthony>Webster
Martin<Aldridge
Nene=Przybilla

But the Portland bench is better, but I'm looking forward to the Nuggets and Blazers games next season.
