    Honestly Morey would be an idiot to sell low on Simmons and the Blazers would be selling low on CJ after the playoff performance...these guys would be better traded at the deadline when they can build some value if a deal in in the works...as it is I don't want a guy here who has no loyalty or desire to play here...Simmons bothers me most because he hasn't come out in the media and addressed the issue....he can clear this up with a press conference. You can trade CJ for a great player who'd love to be in Portland or pay big bucks to a guy who'll bail on you after his first bad playoff series...threaten to not show up for training camp....now that's some immature bullshit I don't care how good a defender he is...can he get his head screwed on straight?

    If Morey-on don't like it, tade him somewhere else for, hope full prospects, that don't fit Embiid's trick knee time line.

    I'm sorry but i just don't see it with Thybulle. He's nothing special. was mediocre vs. team USA. And hasn't done didley in the NBA.

    The thing is River. If CJ stays healthy, and builds on his fast start from last year , before the Lumox stepped on his foot, the Blazers most likely will be rollin' and he won't be traded. If a trade is going to happen, it's gonna be before camp. Or not at all. Unless the season goes tits up of course.

    There's a huge need to improve on the offensive end, but he was 2nd team all defense in his second year, and arguably a top 3 wing defender already.

    Plus Nassir has a chance to make a major step in productivity this year. Nas is a better talent, with a higher ceiling, IMO, of course.

    I don't know but two weeks ago, neither follow each other. Last week Dame started following Ben. This week, Ben started following Dame. On Instagram.

    I follow Dame on IG and checked on his followers when people started mentioning he started following Ben

    purely defensive players are unplayable in the modem nba playoffs, similar to purely offensive players although you can kinda get away with that.

    hard no

    Watching Simmons shoot, does he need glasses. I mean seriously. Most people wait too long to get glasses. Maybe he needs to visit the optometrist .

    CJ had 40 games to build on that fast start and didn't do it. He also played 500 games before that fast start and never came close to matching it. Dame averaged 44 & 10 over a 10 game stretch the season before, but that was not his real level. It was just a hot streak. He regressed to norms, as expected. So did CJ

    I don’t understand why you arent willing to trade a known serial killer in CJ McCollum and someone who hates kittens in RoCo for Ben “nightlife” Simmons

    See how that works? You just make up random shit and then repeat it ad nauseum and reject all the follow up reports saying its bullshit he only wanted the CA teams. Broussard said ANY team is what Ben’s camp wants. Portland is far, far better than most teams and Ben can spend the offseason in LA and enjoy nightlife on the road if need be. I wish people would stop with the made up bullshit.

    Immaturity is real and demonstrable. Can it be fixed? Yes, Im certain if anyone on earth can reach this guy it’s Damian Lillard. The made up CA story line is bullshit. Please stop with the bullshit.

    Interesting stat from the Jacked Ramsey podcast with Danny Marang and Brandon Sprague:

    With Ben Simmons on the floor, the 76'ers shot 40% from the 3-pt line.
    With Ben Simmons NOT on the floor, the 76'ers shot 28% from the 3-pt line.


    That is a dramatic stat and a significant difference. Wonder what he would do for Dame, Simons, Powell, Nance, Little, etc?

    It's Instagram. You see those 2 dots at the bottom of the screen? That indicates there's an additional slide. You have to click over to the next slide.
