    CJ is a class act and a great guy, no doubt. I wish his contract wasn't so lame so he could stay. He's probably one of the best 6th men ever to never play the position.

    I agree with CJ as a 6th man. I think he could be a John Havlicek type player. Plus he'd make the bench potentially explosive IMO. But that ain't gonna happen. And we need an IMPACT PF more.

    or an impact SF. Blazers desperately need an all-star level 2-way wing

    I actually think CJ can be fun to watch offensively.

    MeJ or not, dude can get buckets in a lot of different ways.

    Defensively is my biggest issue with him when he’s in MeJ mode … and when he’s not.

    If we trade CJ, it'll be worth it!

    CJ is 6th man of the year material...he'll eat up second units...I've said for years that's who he is...Jason Terry or Jamal Crawford..

    Why? We played Elleby last night at PG....... I think we have minutes for ANT and McCollum. Chauncey would have to be a complete moron not to develop Ant with
    Dame out for the next 2 months.

    Hot take: CJ doesn’t stop him from developing. Or anyone else. CJ rarely gets the rebound, runs up, and fires up a shot.

    He is MeJ to me because if a play is called for his number, he is finding a way to shoot it no matter what. It’s like a QB when a deep shot is called and just bombs it even if it’s triple coverage. That’s CJ.

    It’s also why I didn’t really have an issue with Melo. They know they’re gonna throw it to him and watch him go 1 on 1. That’s essentially the playcall. So him dribbling around (or CJ) for 10 seconds is… what the offense was expected to do on that given play. Not saying I agree with it. But there is a reason people pointed out the lack of movement while people dribbled around like idiots.

    Nah. Simons will be the starter at the 1. Bench be damned.
