    Surely Portland stated their stance at the beginning of the talks, which is why they probably aren't even one of the teams in this deal.

    Truer words have never been spoken by actual human beings. Androids? They'll say anything.

    Confused? Well, it's a little confusing to think that Portland actually thinks that Melo may want to play for the Blazers. I mean everyone knows that that would never happen.

    Melo wants Houston. He doesn't want to be a Knick anymore. The Knicks just need to end this. Make the trade and be done with it. If Portland wants in on this trade they need to come to their senses and realize they aren't getting Melo.

    Portland has the highest concentration of strip clubs per capita in one small area in the US.

    Portland may be crazy in thinking about Melo, but the biggest news here is that they don't give a **** about getting Ryan...

    Perry's relationship with Melo's circle sounds like it could be a factor we're overlooking. Especially if Melo is concerned with his image.

    Lol Portland. They definitely wouldn't crack top 4 with Melo.

    Looks like it'll be a few more days at least before a deal.

    I don't see it as a threat.

    A guy gave their long time girlfriend a "break" and she went out and got some much needed attention. That guy no longer looks so appealing.

    Suns should probably be that third team where they can ship out Knight (or Bledsoe) to NY. Though we might need to bring in a 4th to compensate PHX in the deal if they don't want Anderson.

    The Portland news may just be them attempting to generate a better return than just Ryno (Harkless/Meyers out & Ryno in makes your team better, but 3 yrs 20 MM I could understand them wanting an extra pick or a young guy for depth).

    Everyone has been assuming Portland this entire time, but no one other than Potato 10 days ago in passing actually mentioned them (that I saw).

    Woj reported Wednesday that a confirmed third team was in, and the strong implication was that that team would be getting Ryan Anderson. He did not say it was Portland. Many of us just simply assumed it based on the Potato tweet and the possibility of Leonard being the other undesirable contract.

    I highly, highly doubt that within 72 hours, Portland went from the confirmed third team in the trade (for Ryno) to a "Melo or bust" mentality. (And if they did, their GM is highly unstable.) I think the much more likely scenario is that toward the beginning of these talks, i.e. when Potato first tweeted about it, Portland was seen as a possibility... but then NY/HOU learned their perspective and moved on to other teams. In other words, the confirmed third team that was taking Ryno -- as of Wednesday -- was probably someone other than Portland.
