Blazers Junk Rumor of the Week

This makes no sense at all.

Amen to that, Jack. I wasn't crazy about the Blake trade. So far, Blake is no more consistent of a shooter than Jack. Jack is a popular, powerful leader on this young team. He's taken his demotion to running the second team like a pro. How can an injury prone Williams make that work? Frye is playing better than anyone expected. Outlaw knows which pack raised him when he could be playing ABA for $40K.

This doesn't make any sense at all. The Blazers shouldn't be making any trade unless it's got Miles, Francis, or LaFrentz attached. Even LaFrentz will be an easy sell in the off season.

Oh, Kevin, listen to the Beatles...

"Speaking words of wisdom... Let it be."

WTF? I can't figure out a single reason why Pritchard would do this. I haven't looked, but is Frye's contract that bad??

Remember, Pritchard is building a team for the long haul; making the playoffs this year is not a priority. And we do need to thin the roster, especially of guards, with Fernandez and perhaps Kaponen coming over next year from Europe. Pritchard could trade Roy for an apple and a folding chair right now and I'd give him the benefit of the doubt.

If this is serious, then this seriously hurts the chemistry of the team. Let's not return to the previous GM's inability to understand chemistry.

my first reaction? foolishness. but, here's some thought out analysis (with stats to back it up). As for the "chemistry" argument, there isn't one person on Earth that understands Portland's chemistry more than Pritchard.


It makes sense for the Nets to have trade rumors so at least they can tell Jason Kidd, "Hey, we tried."
Didn't that game tonight remind you of the good old days? It had a legendary feel to it, much like when Michael used to play Clyde Drexler's old team. I'm sure everyone there tonight will remember King James' dunk in the first half. That was sort of mind-blowing, no?

Outlaw, Frye and Jack for ONE PG with good - not great - stats?! When we already have the best non-NBA PG coming in next year (Rudy Fernandez)? Not going to happen.
