Didn't see one of these, so I guess I'm gonna start one (the season already started). Go Blazers!

Itís just one game , and we still donít have Nurk back (While in the playoffs we will) and it will take a few weeks for the team to fully gell .


The Nuggets are also one of the 3 best teams in the West and last season beat us in 3/4 regular season games
True, but I'm still concerned b/c of Nurk being out. We could definitely get a bad draw in the first round, we'll have trouble against either LA team and maybe even Houston or Utah.

Though I hope we make a trade sometime. We could probably grab someone good (Gallo, LMA, Love) for some expiring salary, and with Nurk back we would be really dangerous.

But if this trade goes through, we'll have a real shot at a championship:
http://tradenba.com/trades/rkEa6XW5r

PG: Lillard, Simons
SG: McCollum, Hood (could also play SF)
SF: Gallo, Hezonja, Little
PF: Aldridge, Collins, Tolliver
C: Nurkic, Labissiere, Gasol

That lineup is stacked, and frankly that trade is very possible (OKC would do it for the pick, and we could probs fork over Nassir and/or a pick to SA in addition, though if Hassan continues to play well it may not be needed). If I were Olshey I would be pushing this hard. It's about damn time to win it all.

100% agree our weakness is at PF And this trade would more then solve . If this trade goes through I would say we would be the favorites to win it all as we would have the best functional backcourt in the league (The rockers backcourt is better on paper but not functionally and Klay is out for the year ) and best front court in the league  along with an amazing best bench .




Agreed on most points, but mayyyyybeeee not the best bench. Hood, Simons, and Collins could be solid, but the rest of the bench is meh. I'd take the LAC bench with Williams and Harrell over them.

On todays game - ugh, are we actually going to lose to the Kings, I mean, Ant is looking good but CJ's scoreline is crap. Sigh.

How did we lose to a freaking Furkan Korkmaz buzzer beater?

On the bright side, the Warriors are probably going to miss the playoffs now, so one more spot for us!

You donít need to worry , many teams start out slow then contend :



The 2006 Heat didnít start out that great yet they won a title , the 2011 Heat didnít start out good and they went to the finals , the 2015 Cavs didnít either and they made the finals .




Yeah, yeah, I'm just incredibly frustrated that we could be 5-1 right now if we just got a few more points.

On paper, Melo looked awful.  Live, he was merely bad.  Conversely, on paper, Whiteside looked decent, but live he was awful.  Play the kids and tank.
...yeah. This is looking increasingly like a lost year for us. Let's develop Simons and Little, get Love, Aldridge or Griffin, and come back next year and win it.

Going full tank and nabbing Wiseman would also be nice lmao

Rodney Hood's out with an Achilles, now. This season has been an absolute dumpster fire. Not sure if we should trade for a third option or tank for the future, with Hood out what we have left isn't a playoff team. Not even sure if OSR can spin this :/

This.

Btw, OSR, do you think it's tank time yet? At this point, even if we make the playoffs, we're just going to get thumped by the Lakers. And, the West is close enough that we could get a seriously good draft pick if we tried hard enough.

I wouldnít tank but I wouldnít go all in for the playoffs too . Just get everyone rested for next season
Thing is, if you're gonna do it (miss the playoffs) you might as well do it right :/

Agreed with you on the resting part. If one of our Big Three gets another long term injury I'll scream.

Interesting. So the Blazers (with Nurkic and Collins) definitely still have a chance, though it's an uphill climb, certainly.
