    Fair enough. However this conversation is a pete aNd repeat event…. Add nausium.

    This has been a discussion for long before Dame was on the team. But its how you portrayed this as a Dame issue and not a team issue that makes this thread weak sauce.

    wut?

    Portland hasn't had cap-space since 2016 and they had an idiot GM who valued CJ more than Paul George and Jimmy Butler, How the fuck was Dame supposed to recruit anybody into that kind of situation? Convince Lebron to sign in Portland for the MLE?

    This isn’t even a rumor. It’s someone rehashing another writers trade idea.

    That qualifies as a rumor, which is something people are talking about that could be true or untrue.

    No. A rumor is, “there are reports of the blazers and magic talking about a trade centered around Lillard.”

    This is someone playing around with a trade machine.

    Nothing burger....if we did ever trade the guy it wouldn't be to a bottom feeding team in the east...the idea is that he gets shipped to a team that's a contender...Orlando is not that team...you can trade Ant and Nas back to their hometown for their first round pick ..Dame would laugh the idea of Orlando right out of the room...he's closer to a ring in Portland playing with 19 year olds

    It's June 4th. There's three weeks until the draft. Everyone knows that nothing is actually going to happen until at least the week of the draft. This has gotta be the worst time to be an NBA content creator. Lots of people are just throwing stuff up and hoping to get those clicks. That's 100% what this is. It's nothing.

    That said, I LOVE this particular nothing. It would make me sooo happy if the Blazers did this exact trade and was able to end up with both of the Thompson twins. If we could get Ausan at 11 and trade Ant and #6 to whoever for some high flying big men it would be a lot of fun to see Amen, Shaedon, Ausar and some other guys that have "jump out of the gym" on their scouting report running all around the court.
