    Well we tried already with Lillard. He’s almost 30 let him go have some shine

    The guy who tweeted that is some random cat with under 200 followers. I wish Dame wouldn’t even pay these people no mind. As far as Dame saying he plays with the hand he is dealt, that isn’t a negative thing. Just like he blasted these players who switch teams when things don’t go well......he’s saying that’s not him, that’s not his style. He sticks with his boys thru thick and thin. That’s how I took it.

    Maybe his shine is being loyal and getting what he gets while being loyal? Do you ever think about that? I mean, you don't because you're a one track mind, but I want to give you the benefit of the doubt.

    It is nearly unequivocal that Dame woulda been an all star the last two years if he played in NY/LA/etc. This is much ado about nothing. Questioning Dame's loyalty is a reach, at best.

    How does a simple tweet that basically means: "I'm not a whiny-ass bitch, I man up and make the best of whatever situation I'm in", get twisted to mean: "I'm unhappy", followed by the manufactured assumption that there's trouble in stump town?

    :dunno:

    How you can put these two quotes in the same thread without a troll meme is beyond comprehension.

    I basically agree, and the two things we need the worse that would complement our duo are a third guard who is taller than those two and can play defense, who can distribute at least as well as Lillard and can shoot the three. Then we need a SF pretty much on the allstar level on offense and defense. Can we get those while retaining the duo? The only other way would be through the draft and it doesn't seem that Olshey is going in that direction.

    When Crabbe was traded to Brooklyn, I was really hoping that NO would target Dinwiddie coming back. He would've been perfect in that role.

    Yeah Dame. If you were in NYC you'd be working for James Dolan and not Paul Allen.
