    Serious question....


    After watching him play us the last two games I really think he is
    the only missing piece to this puzzle....

    WE DESPERATELY NEED A BIG LIKE HIM THAT CAN READ DEFENSES EXTREMELY WELL FROM THE BLOCK!!!.....

    And to take Patterson's 4 spot as well..lol


    So who would you give up......and what would be fair?????

    The only guy the Blazers would consider is harden.

    Anything outside of Harden, though i'd want to hang on to Asik if I could.

    I would give my left nut, but sadly I don't think the Blazers would take it. :( He ruined us two games in a row.

    Can't really think of any scenario where the Trail Blazers would give him up.

    But if we're talking hypotheticals....I'd probably do some combination like DMO, Parsons, Pat, and a couple first round picks, or some variation to that general formula.

    But Harden and Asik would have to be untouchable IMO

    I'd figure it like like this....okay LMA is young but not lilliard young...
    hopefully even though they be us they get smacked around by the rest of the league then the GM mite consider a full youth movement....

    Parsons, DMO, watever picks we have, p-pat, and I would hate to say it but Morris and t-jones.....then we get scrub fillers to finish the season...:grin:

    starting five

    lin
    harden
    delfino
    LMA
    Asik

    Kelvin Sampson and all the other assistant coaches that think like him and support his decision.

    LOL at some of these proposals. Offers would have to start with Harden.

    Considering he is better than every player we have, including Harden.....

    Portland is not going to trade him, they have some promising young talent on that team. We wold have much more luck grabbing a PF from Utah.

    There is no reason for the Blazers to trade LMA. This is not an OKC/Harden situation. LMA is still fairly young and signed to a reasonable contract for the next 3 years.

    Maybe Portland would consider a Shabazz type talent in return but we aren't going to win the lottery. Outside of Harden we don't have enough valuable assets to entice them to deal LMA. Josh Smith and the Utah bigs will be entering FA and are more realistic targets.
