Not my picture, it's from Mike Barrett's blog. I think it's probably at the Blazers practice facility.

Ah. Well it certainly is a nice enough day. They could have done a public introduction. :)

I just found out the introduction was at the fountain in front of the Rose Garden. I hate how they don't tell the fans where to go, but random people walking by the Rose Garden get to see it.

SICK! Also have basically the biggest expiring deal in the league with LaFrentz and one of the best GMs and richest owners. Blazers are looking set for a long long time.

Roy is definetley not playing Point.
Bayless is gonna start.
Webster or Outlaw at SF are a tossup

I think Blake starts, at least the first half of the season. Only change to the starting line-up should be Oden.

Blake
Roy
Webster
Aldridge
Oden

2nd string:
Bayless
Rudy
Outlaw
Frye
Przybilla

That should be a fun 2nd string as well. That line-up is also the one Nate McMillan said he is leaning towards at the moment.

If Oden is half the beast he was in college, they will be a scary team. Don't sleep on Batum either, that guy was a steal and very few people know just how athletic he is. They have freaky depth, a lot of guys who can play.

I like the deal for the Pacers, we already got a point guard who's ready to play in Ford and we picked up the guy supposedly they had their eyes on all along. Also Jack should be a solid back to compliment Ford with his defense, who knows what McRoberts could do.. but hell at least we got rid of Keenan

I only saw one game, but I'm a Batum fan. I hope he does well.

Steve Blake is the kind of guy who starts over players better than him. And the Blazers are the kind of team that starts Steve Blake over a superior player. I say Blake starts at least for the first 40 games.

What are everyone's thoughts on Diogu? Can he be that third big man the Blazers need? Does this mean Frye gets dealt?

Also how is Rudy's shot? If he can stroke a 3 this team is set; if he's more of a Manu type of player I think they still need to add a shooter and trade Webster (I can't see him ever being consistent enough a shooter.)

Agreed on Blake.

Frye has proved himself to be effective in the NBA. Diogu has yet to do so. I hope he works out and can be productive, but before I see it, I will keep my faith in Frye.

As for Fernandez, he had a very good 3% in Europe, but their 3 point line is not quite as far as the NBA's (but still further than college's).

Diogu showed flashes of talent a few times but he got hurt and never really got back into the rotation. I would say Ike has more potential but Channing is probably a much better play right now.
