Really? Sacramento wasn't exactly stoked to see him taken in the expansion draft (at least the fans weren't). I'm sure many teams that were in a building mode would have given the same chance.

I'm kind of bummed the Kings didn't make a move for him. He doesn't necessarily fill any of their holes (except they don't have a very good SF), but he was a popular player and I love his game.

Charlotte may this trade because of the two first round draft picks. Plus, it appears there now committed to giving big minutes to Gerald Henderson, who's played very good as of late.

Dante Cunningham is pretty solid from what limited action I've seen of him in the NBA. Kinda similar to Crash in some ways.

Love Gerald Wallace's game, but he has somewhat had a disappointing season.

It'll be a good move if MJ can turn the those first round picks into something.

Regardless, I totally understand why some Charlotte fans are pissed.

i dunno how likely that is... they got a new orleans pick for 2011 that the blazers got by trading bayless. it wont be a lottery pick and this draft is weeeeeak. and the other first rounder is top twelve protected through 2015. those arent great.

but maybe they package them in a differant deal or something.

I'm curious how he'll do given more minutes, but I wouldn't get your hopes up. I view him somewhere between a less than average 2nd string guy and a good 3rd string guy (on a good team). He's similar to Crash in the sense that he can hold down the SF and PF spot, but otherwise he severely lacks the athleticism to play like Crash.

stretching to hope oden has a resurgence but im crossing my fingers

but regardless, we just became one of the longest and defensively scary teams in the league... before yall go crazy i said "one of the..." boston and LA are still pretty elite defensively. but wes mathews, nic batum, gerald wallace... throw in cambys and aldridge's wingspan... scary

For now, and because of health problems.

Healthy though, Camby, Aldridge, and Batum are as long as it gets. Even Andre Miller has pretty long arms.

Hell, Oden is a freak of nature with his wing span.

Plus, we play defense. We aren't the Warriors.

People need to get off this Portland training staff thing.

Camby, Oden, and Roy are all injury prone.

Aldridge and Andre have been in good healthy. Even Batum and Rudy have bounced back well.

Matthews is playing with a messed up ankle that seems to be getting better.

Our training staff is fine. If Andre Miller had injury problems, then it'd be the staff.

by far the most knee injuries in the NBA this decade disagrees with you although I do agree with brandon and marcus statement.

this. everyone knew about roys knees outa college. everyone knows giant 20 year old monster men are always more at risk than smaller more proportioned bodies. and it wasnt the trainers fault priz went down verrrry awkwardly... and then re-busted it falling in a shower. its the worst luck in a decade. not the worst training staff in a decade
