    In all seriousness, like I've mentioned before, PDX will never contend with this backcourt, and I personally think CJ is a better player, and Dame has higher trade value. Time to break this duo up.

    Why can't we win with this backcourt? They aren't the problem. It's the pieces around him. Same with Rasheed Wallace. We could've won with him but we never put the pieces around him that Detroit had.

    I don't think this is Dame saying anything negative about Portland personally. Or, rather, I don't read it that way at all.

    So we become an even more ball-hogging team with CJ? You thought ISO-roy was bad....

    The argument I've made in the past that we can't give two of our three max contract slots to our defense deficient backcourt. The talent is better spread out, especially in getting wing players which we have none of.

    That’s because it isn’t negative.

    Literally you get out of it what you want to read. You’re thinking negative about the team so you think Dame is slamming portland.
