    Oh god. I hate when Dame has a say in anything to do with this roster.

    Keljin Blevins wasn’t enough?

    My god. We have lots of short guys but they aren’t good. They all won’t be here long. Be patient. Have to get the Keon/Brandon W/ Bledsoe/ etc out of the equation. They ain’t playing.

    Where those dudes at that were beating their chests about Joe being the man after the Grant trade?

    This makes no sense unless a trade happens.

    It's not the price, it's what he got.

    This makes no sense, I guess they are setting up for a trade.

    I thought the Grant trade was okay. Sharpe was sweet. Everything else is stressing me out.

    Would appear the Blazers are down in Keon if not out.

    All the names we've been linked to: Thybulle, Dort, Brown etc.

    It's VERY obvious Chauncey and co were looking for a lockdown perimeter defender.

    I still have no faith in Joe Cronnin. This is a extremely puzzling move without further trades. hopefully my comments here age poorly.

    Been there done that. At least these guards are dogs on the defensive end and don’t fold like lawn chairs.
