    Yeah, I did not include Walker or Sharpe. Who are they going to take minutes from right away?
    In time, absolutely, but early in the season, I doubt it unless there is an injury. Now late in the season might be a different story, but
    most teams only play about 9-10 players a game and IMO they will start off on the bench.

    I expect Jabari to get 10-15 minutes per game by sometime in December. We shall see.

    This could happen but i would think it would take an injury or two?

    Heard on 620AM, Rip City Morning show this morning what sounded like an ad to hype the blazers' incoming season, basically it was mentioned that GP and Nas will anchor the bench. I wonder if they were assuming or they know something

    Sir, you have to actually type this question out? These dudes don't know ANYTHING. They haven't heard ANYTHING. It's local sports talk radio.

    It wasn't the hosts saying it live, it was during a commercial break, like a Blazer ad declaring "GP and Nas as bench anchors." It surprised me because it was delivered with authority and not in a speculative manner. My initial reaction was news leaked and I was hearing it for the first time. Anyone else caught what I'm talking about?

    It’s like you don’t watch NBA basketball.

    Walker is still pretty raw. Sharp might be starting to practice? You think he's wrong? Those two won't be playing much is my thought here.

    This game is not on Root as the thread title says.
    10/4 vs Jazz and 10/11 vs Warriors are the only preseason games that are on TV.

    No, he just immediately argues with everything I type for the past 10 years.

    Of course he’s wrong. Over the course of a season, people play. Trendon Watford last year for instance. We never have a season without injuries.
