    Yeah, he looks like a point guard. He has surprised me in that role. He was only credited with one assist but it could very easily have been 5. He had some nice dribble penetration and kick-outs to guys who missed wide-open shots. He looks a lot more comfortable out there. I still think he's going to be good.

    Man everything what Kenny and Chuck said about the Blazers are all true. We just don’t play defense consistently.

    I'm pretty sure @THE HCP will be in here in a little bit to ask if we're good now. Sorry if I stole your joke. I think the answers to all of your questions lately are the classic 8 ball answers:

    ● Reply hazy, try again.
    ● Ask again later.
    ● Better not tell you now.
    ● Cannot predict now.
    ● Concentrate and ask again.

    Rubio can’t shoot but man I would love to have him running our second unit. When is he a free agent? He belongs in Portland lol

    Trent plays much better alongside CJ and Dame.

    He’s always looked like a point guard to me. Did you see the game in his first season vs The Kings where he had 37 points? He was amazing that game.

    Yeah, I thought he looked like more of a shooting guard in that game. Last year as well. This year I can see why they have confidence in him.

    well, when Dame is playing well, Aldo and Labinot don't have much to say, except about Nurkic...unless he's playing well too

    Great to see Little on the court. Much sooner than most thought. It was mop-up duty but still good to see him finally healthy.

    As I recall he had some sweet passes that game and 9 assists.

    What is going on with Anthony Edwards? It’s like he’s trying to wreck the Wolves on purpose.

    I won't have people talking this kind of shit about the great Anthony Edwards who single handedly launched the careers of both Tom Cruise and George Clooney. Look it up, it's a fact.

    On a basketball note, no one can wreck wreckage.

    Could be worse. Denver is at 3-5, including 2-4 at home.

    But there are valid excuses for all the other teams struggling, with the exception of Portland

    True. They don’t have two short guards, Terry Stotts for a coach or Olshey for a GM so what valid reasons would there be to criticize them?

    Fucking cracks me up the same people who just blast this team simply DISAPPEAR during games like this. Crickets! Gone! At least be consistent and give credit when it's due......it will give your critiques more credibility, trust me.

    So is Stotts still a bad coach? Not sure how this works.
