Sergio Rodriguez is super cool player on Portland. Why is he get sat on bench by big coach MacMillan? Is not Portland need a point gaurd type? For me, Steve Blake is a not at good pointguarding. At Real Madrid Sergio Rodriguez like Magic Johnson! :O
And picked number 5! !!
Will start for Portland??

Send Rodriguez to Miami. I am dumbfounded as to why he does not get minutes. Sure he's not great defensively, due to his size, though this is the case with a lot of point guards.

Sergio doesn't play defense. Makes poor decisions with the ball. Can't shoot. And has a bad work ethic.

In short, I want him to have 0 minutes and I expect him to be traded or cut now that we have 4 guards that we expect to give plenty of minutes to. And if you think Sergio is better than Blake, then you didn't really watch each of them play in the NBA.

Sorry for being so blunt about it, but I really am sick of Sergio and I don't think he will develop into a starter a good player.

Sergio Rodriguez is really young, he hasnt got a chance to prove what he could do as a pg because he never got significant minutes. Until he gets a chance he needs to keep working hard.

He sucks. He plays out of control and can't make a jump shot. He is a great passer and occasionally has a good offensive outing but not consistently at all. He also is being a cry baby right now instead of working on improving.

Maybe because he doesn't get time to play? When players don't get enough time, they tend to overdo it when they get some playing time. That's the problem.

Trade him or waive him now... Knicks would take him.

Yes. With Carmelo Anthony and Kleiza on team and spread ball court out, he putting up quite high average. Sergio has bad defensive, but also look at Nash, he bad too. But Nash take charge call, Sergio take flop and then equal Nash defensive I think. And, Chris Paul have weak shot too.

Man, I remember last year when everybody who has heard of him kept saying "He's the next Steve Nash." I never saw it, so when I heard non-Portland fans saying that, I was pushing for them to trade him. Other Blazer fans (not necessarily on ISH) used the young excuse and would say "He's young, give him a chance to develop. If he doesn't make it, then we trade him." Well, now others have jumped on the trade Sergio bandwagon, but unfortunately his value has dropped to trade for a 2nd rounder rather than add him with another decent guy and get a starter in a trade.

Now the only reason Blazer fans seem to want him around is so he can help Rudy Fernandez adjust to the U.S. I'd almost rather not have that happen because I think Sergio could be a negative influence and try to turn Rudy against McMillan. Its not McMillan's fault Sergio sucks and won't work to improve.

I'll give you him and Frye (not that I don't like Frye) for Lee + filler. But most likely, the Blazers will let Sergio walk when his contract ends if we can't find a trade.

Players have to earn their minutes. Sergio won't work on his D, because he'd rather 'play with his buddies' that aren't NBA players. Sergio also said he doesn't want to play on the summer league. Why would we give this guy minutes? He has done nothing to deserve them.

Below average.

His handles are the only thing he really has going for him. He can pull off risky passes once in a while too, but the problem is that he tries those risky passes in the first place.

My favorite memory of Sergio is when I took my older brother to a game (I think it was vs the Nets) and he got the ball out on a fast break. He threw what looked like a lob for the ref. It made me angry, but because it was one of the worst mistakes I've ever seen in person, I laughed my @ss off.
