    Sorry, I guess I was confused by the fact that the tweet you had posted was about an exec claiming Ben only wanted to play in California. :dunno:

    I was thinking about the other tweet I posted regarding Execs not wanting to trade for him. My apologies.

    just to take a momentary break from Simmons...or tires....I wonder who the best left hand shooter, besides Harden, is in the NBA today? Conley?

    in NBA history, again, besides Harden....who else? Manu?

    best in Blazer history would be Damon, unless I'm forgetting somebody

    I can think of a very specific time when I changed my mind on here. When the NBA closed up for COVID, I had originally thought it was just a bad cold/flu. I remember being pissed that they shut down the season and I argued with some people on here. And then people pointed out some specific information about it and I did research and I changed my mind. I took COVID very seriously from that point on, unlike my parents and most of my friends.

    Can you honestly think of a time on here that you had your mind completely changed?

    What does this even mean? I'm always open to suggestion. Suggest with info that matters... Who cares if it's on an online forum or not? Apparently you...

    I don't use conjecture to form my opinions. I gather all the info and then make a decision. If y'all can't come up with a good counter argument... :dunno:

    We need to take a big pass on Simmons.

    instead, trade to win now!

    CJ + Nurkic (plus whatever) for KAT and a back-up guard or SF.

    get this done and we are closer to a Title than Simmons would have brought!

    You have apparently made up your mind on Simmons without hearing a single word directly from him.

    Jesus give it a rest...

    He couldn't say one word to make me want him. I've seen him play since he was a HS Senior...

    He is OVER FUCKING RATED... Now stop trying to convince me...

    All the info? All you do is point to the Hawks series.

    I JUST SAID I've watched him play since he was a Senior in HS. He has NEVER been able to shoot. He never even TAKES shots...

    He does NOT shoot because he's afraid of the consequences. He's afraid to drive and be fouled because of the consequences.

    All this came to a head in the PLAYOFF SERIES WHERE HE AVERAGED LESS THAN 10 PTS...

    They lost to the fucking Hawks... Why does that not matter to y'all?? STOP acting like this doesn't matter! It does.

    If CJ averaged 9 pts in a playoff series, y'all would hate him even more and be calling for his head.

    Great....a picture of a Dame/CJ lovefest with Jokic over their shoulders just before finishing punking them without his starting backcourt.

    Nice marketing.... :banghead2:

    It’s really too bad that scoring is the only thing that matters in basketball. Sorry Ben, scoring is the only thing that matters in basketball. We have no use for you.
