    If it is what it appears to be, Nate McMillain is either a great man, or a Larry Brown who looks for the next biggest paycheck. I think it is the former, not the latter. I really think he expects this team to do REALLY well this season and we should get excited about it. He's telling the Blazers "look, I'm going to show you that I'm the coach to bring this team to a ring. I want a ring. If I show you guys that I am championship coach material, I deserve a nicer paycheck. If I show you guys that I can't take you any further than this, then it is better for the team to look another direction." I also think it is a message to B-Roy and LA saying, "look guys, you need to play everygame for eachother as if it is your last game as a team, because it just might be." He doesn't want another D-Miles/Lamar Odom situation where they get a sweet contract and skate through until it's time to earn a new contract. I believe in Nate, I think this is a great move for both him AND the Blazers. Both will get the maximum benefit out of this deal. Expect one year contracts for Nate until he wins a ring. Once that ring is on his finger, look for them to try and lock him up for life.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
