    Can't remember where I heard this but it was something like: 'Pendergraph just got his first NBA minutes and he could be starting tomorrow.' Of course it was mostly sarcastic, but what are the odds of JP starting at center in the near future? He's our biggest body and I think he has the best chance of defending some of the bigger centers in the league (I'm hoping he's much quicker than Jawon Howard). He can hit the midrange jumper which could hopefully open the paint a little bit. I'm too tired to write much more right now. Thoughts?

    Nah man, I was thinking the same thing. You see that dunk he crushed tonight? The guy is a maniac out there. It's also a sitch where Blazers don't wanna rush him into loggin' heavy minutes yet. Juwan has played some very steady ball for us. Howard will do fine as a starter, but if Pender starts heatin' up down the road, I'd say let him start.

    I like Cunningham and think he can do fine for us in the future, but after watching Pandergraph I'm sold on him being a solid player in a couple years. He'll definitely serious minutes and wouldn't be surprised if he makes a run at ROY. Of course he won't get it but having his name up there in the ballots is something we need. The only thing that can save this season is to end up having a couple starters or solid rotational players at least.

    For some reason I thought he was 6'10" or 6'11"..to hear he is 6'9" is a little disheartening. I hope he plays bigger than his size indicates!

    Let's hope he does! Until he shows he can't play bigger than 6'9" I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt and say he can (mostly to keep my sanity).

    Wow, he does play much bigger than his size indicates. I was very impressed with his rebounding tonight and his box out technique. He showed nice hands around the basket and had a couple soft jumpers around the hoop. I hope he improves as the playing time will inevitably increase. I think we may have found a 2nd round steal!

    I'm officially sold on Pendergraph after only 17 minutes of action. Loved the technical he got, he's not backing down from anyone. It's also great to see that he's willing and able to take a charge just like big Joel.

    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...
