Default Summer league game 4 (win vs Suns)

Bayless was amazing, especially in the 2nd half. He had 36 points, and I can't remember exactly, but he only had like 9 points of his 36 in the first half (making 27 in the 2nd if what I said is correct). Bayless also hit the game winning shot.

Koponen struggled to score, but was better running the point today. Five assists, 1 turnover.

The Blazers roster is the envy of every basketball fan these days.

I think they should sign Koponen, sure it would take the last roster spot, but honestly with the depth they have at every position, signing this guy before other teams notice how good he is would be the best choice.

You are suppose to smoke that stuff, not eat it. :)

I hope we sign Koponen. I'd say it is 50/50.

What's the thought there in Portland about Bayless' position on the team? Ridiculous scorer, but he's had what, five or six assists combined in 4 games? Does he start right away at PG with Roy on the floor to take on the playmaking duties, with Blake/Fernandez backing them up?

What about Koponen, is he a lock for the roster?

You bastards. Enjoy the 17 championships you're bound to win.

Wow, apparently our guys are going to have long careers. Thanks for the comp anyway.

I'm starting to get excited about the idea of a Roy/Bayless and a Blake/Fernandez pairing. Though, I think Bayless will have to earn his spot over Blake, which may take a little time. What would be great about it though is that Roy and Blake are each play makers while Bayless and Fernandez are scorers, so matching Roy with one of the scorers and Blake with the other could be wise.

And no, Koponen isn't a lock. I hope he makes it though. I'd say 50/50 chance.

What's bad, is that I read that and went "huh"!!!!! That was good!!!

Watching him play, I think Koponen should be able to play both guard spots - defensively he might get hurt guarding bigger guards that might try to post him up.....I'm hoping we sign him though.

It is way more than 50/50 right now.

I'd say 70/30 or 75/25 that Kopponen is signed.

I guess I just don't want to get my hopes up only to be disappointed.
