If I Had to CHoose?
Yep the title of the thread does not exactly match the poll question... believe me... read the poll question... read the thread... people in here and people answering the poll would trade Ant not Nas. You probably want to change your answer to the poll question.
Keep Nas all day long! And it has nothing to do with me picking this up!
I love my ants, but I think Nas will be the better player. Would prefer to keep both.
Dude, you need to go pick up one of Ant's, too. Your money will go to this caring tyrant that provides for all ants' needs.
we desperately need a wing and nassir little is a wing, on the other hand, we already have dame, cj & powell as guards, so anfernee simons is very much expendable
that being said, both guys have shown some improvement and lets see if they can keep it going
Simons back to falling off. He did this the last 2 years. Starts off hot then goes back to being a no show…
When’s the last time he scored in double figures?
Just over a week ago he had 16 points against Denver. You are so fucking quick to count players out it's ridiculous. Ant is averaging over 11ppg and shooting over 36% from three and 94% from the line. He has also balanced out his three and two point shooting getting almost half of his shots inside the three point line. Ant is showing real progress this season and hasn't dropped off.
Truth be told… i did. Lol
Meh that was a 30 point blow out Denver killed us. I don’t remember him having double digits in a significant game in a long time
Frankly, I wish we could have traded Ant for Powell and kept Trent! The mere fact Toronto would have laughed at that idea should serve as a warning.
I think Ant potentially has a higher ceiling, but with a lower floor as well, with what Nas has shown in a small sampling size this season. I think positional need, and our search for a SF leads me to keeping Nas, trading Ant, but, depending on the target, I'd move them both.
I think the only way he has a chance is if CJ gets moved and the team gets more balanced on offense. Without CJ, it likely would. Dame is always going to get shots but after that a nice balance of Norm and Nassir along with whoever we got for CJ.
I think he needs a real point guard feeding him the ball ala DSJ. He plays without thinking more as a SG and it just flows well. As point guard, he's thinking too much. He's a SG.
Who are the 3 non Blazer fans who voted for Nas?
I chose Little for the very reason most would not - he’s got the higher ceiling and we would certainly get more in trade back. He’s a little “wild” and perhaps this will improve with playing time. I love Little and I also am really starting to believe in Ant.
to beat my dead horse….trade CJ, Nurkic and RoCo. Three starters and get back real talent - KAT is my top pick but if unavailable, then get Simmons.
Dame / Ant
Get a third team involved so we get back more pieces. But CJ, Nurkic and RoCo Can all go and start building around Dame / Ant / Little / Norm / Nance and Simmons? If not KAT
I would keep Nas the kid just scratching the service be very good player. Simons wants to be Dame and CJ to much for my taste. Even though he has improved his play on both side but still below average defender.
Great poll question! For similar landslide results for the next question I'd suggest... Will Damian Lillard eventually join hoopers Eddie Gill & Harold Arceneaux in the Weber State HOF?
I suppose it is now
but if this poll had been taken in the off-season I think the results would have been a lot different
