    Noah can't play point guard.

    He's 34 years old, but for brief minutes, which is all that should be needed, I like what he can do and think he could still bring it. Fiery energy, he competes on almost every play, very high IQ, brilliant passer, still a solid defender....and as bad as that cyclone rotation is, a better FT shooter than Evan Turner was last year.

    I like him for the vet min even if he can't play. Seasoned veterans on the team have value even if they dont play.

    Absolutely...but I think he still has something left, especially for a Playoff team. Last year, his per/36:

    15.5 points
    12.4 rebs
    4.6 assts
    1.6 blks
    1.0 stls

    I'll take that all day at 10-15 minutes per game.

    Noah should be at the top of Olsheys list if he’s looking for a center.

    Side note: it would give us three French speakers. Magnifique.

    Hell why not.

    Let me ask y'all a real question:

    For those who don't like him, besides his hair @BlazerWookee, why don't you like him?

    I've always loved Noah. As a person and a player. I LOVE his blunt honesty. I FUCKING loved this:

    I think Noah is waiting to see if Leonard goes to LA. Then he'll sign in LA for the vet minimum.

    This is an interesting question. Im not sure if I like his personality or not, theres something refreshing about honesty. He also doesn't strike me as very much of a Trail Blazer. Could not imagine Dame ever saying he doesn't like an entire city, he might but I would almost guarantee he would add something about their are good people there he just doesn't like the city.

    Basketball wise, I think he’s soooo limited offensively that it limits who he can play with.

    If they brought him in, Im not sure it makes them much better.
