Cunningham is actually one of the best backups you will have.

Very productive player while on the court here in Portland. One of the guys I always felt confident in when he is in the game.

Nice.. I hope Camby is healthy, now we need big men more then ever. But Wallace will bring defence and rebounding and some miss matches maybe even a few points.

Some technical issues ?

Great trade for Blazers though

ISH servers suck basically. Whenever anything important happens the site goes down because of the traffic..

The deal was made because they received two first round picks by the Blazers.

That Charlotte team is awful, MJ has done a bad job organizing a good team, and him and company seem more worried about the luxury tax than they do committing to staying in the playoffs.

- Augustin isn't that good. Livingston's outplayed him lately.
- Gerald Henderson is probably the starting SG now, he really hasn't shown a lot, I will say that he is actually proving something and earning minutes.
- Stephen Jackson is the best player on the team, but having him as your best player is not going to get you success.
- Diaw isn't really a good low post PF, isn't too bad, but not what he used to be in Phoenix.
- Przybilla doesn't give you anything on the offensive end, defense is good, good rebounder I suppose.
- Cunningham might not be too bad off the bench actually.

In essence, this Charlotte team might be the worst team in the league on the offensive end now, they don't have any good offensive pieces outside of Captain Jack. I guess it gives you a couple 1st round picks, but Gerald Wallace is worth more than that.

This is seriously the best thing to happen to the Blazers in a long time. I LOVE Gerald Wallace on this team. Imagine if they resign a healthy Oden (that's a HUGE unlikely scenario). Wallace/Aldridge/Oden would compete with LA for the best front court rotation in the west.

Two 1st round picks are included in the deal.

Sounds like MJ is looking to rebuild for the future with more draft picks, and saving cap money. Will be interesting to see if it actually comes into fruition.

So basically, MJ just bought a team to say he owns an NBA team.

And to think, Charlotte was the city with LJJ, Zo and MUGSY BOGUES. Now...

I mean, I LOLed for real when I saw that Kwame Brown was on the Bobcats now. Does MJ not see the constant reminder about how awful he is at running an NBA franchise?!

Edit: The two first round picks makes it a bit more palatable, but still...Wallace was their second best player, borderline best. Portland picks aren't likely to be very high either.
