Billa for Thabeet

    Why don't we consider Thabeet? yes so far in the NBA he is a bust but our staff is good with big men and he is    7' 3 so if we could develop him we would have a huge big man. If we don't do the bobcats trade then we should try this one because he would learn SO much from Camby, and Buck Williams could teach him a thing or two. GO BLAZERS! 10 11 Champs

    wouldnt call him a bust because he never had any offense to begin with, but yea thabeet would be a great pick up for us.

    I don't like repeating myself so Im just going to copy and paste hope thats ok...


    "Thabeet is still very raw.  He has a lot of potential but we need a staff that can teach him to play gracefully.  He will never be a power center he doesn't have the body mass.  If LA continues working on being aggressive, we get a coach that will teach Thabeet the sky hook, and a coach that runs inside out offense, then yes Thabeet would be a good investment..."

    By those trades, Greivis Vasquez and Armon Johnson will then be traded to the Phoenix Suns for Goran Dragic and a 2nd round draft pick.

    (I was just playing with the trade machine. Unfortunately, I can't insert a fifth team. So, this isn't a serious idea. Need your comments on this though)

    Thabeet could be really good.  I saw him play a lot in college and he doesnt have a lot of offensive talent but he is an excellent rebounder and shot blocker and I'm sure he could learn to score better if he is coached well.  I would definately try to get him if I were cho since he is still very young and has looked very good at times.  I think he could develop into a Marcus Camby type player since he has that same shot blocking and rebounding ability.
    I am a fan of the Blazers draft selections. Feels good to finally be able to say that

    Other than Thabeet being Tall, why should we go for him, its taken us 3 or 4 years to get LaMarcus understanding that he is bigger than alot of other people, so use your height!!!
    I mean we have the worst medical staff, so i wouldnt put the trainers at a much higher level.

     Marks for Thabeet  !!

    He is raw, but only experience will change that. He will block shots , rebound and has 6 fouls.
     LA, Marcus and Dante can't keep carrying this load , at this pace through the playoffs.

    While I laughed at the Grizz for picking Thabeet and still think he's a bust, he is the type of player we should be looking at: a player with a ton of potential who is young and in a position of need. While I love Joel and eve if Thabeet's value is fairly low, I would expect Memphis to ask for quite a bit more in return. Teams don't just give up on Top 5 picks that quickly.

    Marks, Odens expiring contract or exception for this season ( is that even possible ?) the draft pick from the Bayless trade, and $ couldn't get Thabett here  in any combination ??  
    Thabeet is to young to be labeled a bust yet, he will rebound and block shots wherever he lands, NOW
    Again, I <3 Dante, but he is playing undersized.
     How long until LA has back problems from carrying the team in the paint all season ?
    Looks like since its the 30th, Cho won't be making a move, were stuck in mamby pamby land, still waiting on Oden :(  I <3 that commercial. Reminds me of the way I was raised.

    For everyone who doesnt get the commercial I am referring to: ^^Here is your mental picture for the day,
    Mr Cho laying on the coach in my office, explaining why the Blazers can't get a legit sized back up for LA that can grab a rebound, then Kim throwing a box of kleenex at him.

    Happy new year Blazer fans !!

    Go Blazers !!
