    No doubt about it. I thought Ben would be a good fit too. But I will take Winslow (and his attitude) for 30 million less per year and use that money on another player (or players)

    He gives Ant the perfect outlet. Ant can focus on getting open after he passes to Winslow.

    It is bit sad, but it looks like all those well spoken vets just didn't respect Billups.
    Even RoCo and Powell had their DNA changed by you know who;) in a short time.

    I am both excited and afraid of Lillard coming back to this team.
    It would be nice to see in the play offs if he can play in this system.

    I think it’s an underrated part about coaching in nba. It’s a lot easier to coach younger players. Vets are usually set in their ways. Probably why there’s so much coaching turnover in the league. I think we’ll see full buy in from Dame though. He’s a billups type mentally. He’ll be better without CJ. There’s also a part of me that believes Dame sacrificed defensively because playing through his injury mixed with his offensive responsibility was just too much to handle. So a healthy Dame might surprise on the defensive end.

    It would still suck to have a sub-optimal defense all over again when Josh Hart could be playing in place of one of them. Hart also looks to be the more efficient scorer of the three. Nice to have when Dame or Ant are throwing up bricks.

    hart is absolutely a starting caliber guard/wing, but he's also not the kinda shooter he's shown us his first two games. he's gonna cool down a bit. if he embraces a 6th man role where he plays 30mpg, i think we can stagger dame/ant sufficiently to get a solid defense in aggregate.

    I also think there will be times that having all three of them on the floor at the same time will be beneficial.

    For the 2021-22 season Hart has been more efficient than our guards scoring. Dame was more efficient last season. If Dame is healthy and Ant is playing well, it could be a tossup, which is good for the Blazers.

    there will be enough minutes for all of them. I bet we even see them together because unlike CJ and Powell, Hart actually defends and rebounds.
