    You are excused. With our luck, they would become injured, too!

    His court vision is real. I really wish we could have signed him to a longer deal, because I don't think he will play much this season, but he's got a ton of potential.

    I don't know if you're suggesting that Zach's issues are all related to his injuries, but it's quite a stretch to say he could have the same amount of impact as the other two guys if he was never unlucky.

    No, I'm saying that it FEELS like everyone to come to Portland gets injured. It's mostly a joke.

    I love this signing, Harry Giles was the projected number 1 pick in the draft years ago but he had a lot of injuries.

    Talent is still there though and he's only 22.

    Too bad it's only a 1 year deal, i'm sure he will thrive in our system and then he will sign for big money elsewhere

    ok impressive court vision and bbq instincts. Good help defense, I really like what I see. Honestly wish we’d sign him to 2-3 year deal. This kid is going to push Collins

    His skills in grilling the meats will come in handy during team potlucks.

    Couldn’t we just resign him instead of Collins if that happens?

    One thing though. Harry Giles has had knee injuries/issues since HS.


    Then again, sounds like a fit with us

    I remember a number of people saying the Blazers were completely hamstrung and could not make moves to improve the roster without moving CJ.
