I think Portland made a very good move. I have no idea what is going through Ainge's head.

I watched a few Portland games and I thought he barely shot. He gets most of his buckets taking it to the rack. Myopinion is he tries to much to pass. Defenders can get a read on that and easily pick him off.

One reason the gun incident will stick to him his whole career is that if he was not on a basketball team that would really screw up his life.
Some Raptor fans could maybe be drawn and quartered, but it'd take a lot of time. Shooting is far more effective.

Some people will never forget him taking a gun on a plane but around here it's barely mentioned. People are far more interested in whether or not he can beat out Delonte to start, will be pass-first or shoot-first, etc. Only person dwelling on it in this forum is you. It's history, most people no longer care. If he had fired the gun it may be more worthy of discussion,t carrying a gun on a plane? Big deal. So did Barry Switzer.

I think Telfair should have gone to college. He isn't the type of player I would want to having manning the point for my team. His game is similar but not even on the level of Chris Paul. As of right now, he would be a much better prospect for AND 1 or at least send him to the D-L for some time. He could prove me wrong though this coming season with the C's. It all depends on his drive, motivation, work ethic, and maturity.

Exactly, they could've had Chris Paul or Jameer Nelson but they took Telfair

Jack is a better PG for the Nate McMillian system because he is a pass first shoot second PG like Bassy but if Jack needs too, he can hit the open jumper as well as slash to the basket, Bassy can only slash

Plus, Portland got a better fast paced PG in last years draft...Spanish Chocolate Aka Sergio Rodriguez

No offense, but Telfair is not that good. I think Jarrett Jack is much better.

I was in shock when I read the title of this thread, but then I saw the date and it made it all better. I hope the initial poster doesn't still feel that way.

I never thought Telfair had potential. He wasn't consistent.

Plus, why do I here on the news that he always gets caught with handguns on planes? Who in the world brings handguns with them on airplanes? Maybe I'm mistaking the situation. I didn't read the whole article. Didn't really care.

He has been caught with a handgun twice. The first time was on the Blazer jet and they found it in his pillow case. He said it was his girlfriend's that she keeps for protection. He claimed he found it in his bag and decided to hide it, but it was found. The second time I don't know as much about because it happened when he was in Boston. I'm not even sure if it was on a plane or not, but I did hear of it happening again.

Off court issues with poor on court play leads to a short career. KP is awesome for finding a way to give him over to Boston in the deal that sent us Brandon Roy. :)

Sebastian is insanely gifted

but he shoulda never skipped college
to take it a step further PT Guard is the one position in the NBA that you should do at least 2 yrs of college ball first before going pro.


Thats Sebastian problem
He needs to grow as a Pt guard his decision making needs work.
He can get to the rack on anyone and his jump shot has improved alot

but his problems are he's terrible on D and even though he can breakdown the D with his penetration he his floor vision and decision making needs work. He needs to go to the D league to work on his game or play for a weak team that will allow him to improve and learn on the floor.
But his reputation is so bad he may never get a 2nd chance.

I must point out that the Blazers were a weak team and that wasn't enough for him. I agree he needs the D-league.
