    He definitely has his Uncles fashion sense.

    After part 2 of his CJ interviews I'm warming up to this guy...sounds like he's matured into a pretty well rounded guy. He's very articulate about his mental health issues which was a flag for me...after hearing how he turned it around I'll eat crow on that former opinion of mine.

    I sure as hell hope you are right. NOW, all of a sudden, he is in love with Portland? He is a Portland homeboy??? Kevin Love has never said bullshit in the past. Screw him.


    I would go for Blake in a second. To have him here would be amazing!

    I call Kevin Love a very, VERY bad contract. I'm OK with KLove the player, but THEY would have to send us multiple picks. The biggest obstacle is that without Turner and Biebs, we no longer have bad contracts - we'd have to actually give up valuable players. This obstacle is actually insurmountable.

    Yep they could have much easier traded him 3 months ago when he only made 24 mil. But Cleveland figured they would get more if they waited. Now they need to wait for a contender who becomes desperate because of injuries

    Kevin Love to Portland Trade Suggestions Keep on Rolling

    The most popular trade topic for the Blazers this summer will not die.

    [​IMG]

    Kevin Love being traded to the Portland Trail Blazers has become the Story that Will Not Die in the summer of 2019. Like The Undertaker or a good horror movie villain, every time you think it’s properly dead, it rises again. This week Brad Botkin of CBS sports took a shot, naming the Blazers, Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, and Golden State Warriors as hot destinations for the veteran forward.

    Botkin places that quintet of franchises in the middle of the Venn Diagram of interest, salary to spare, and assets to entice the Cleveland Cavaliers to move Love. Of Portland, Botkin says:

    A Love deal with Portland could work with Hassan Whiteside representing the money and Nassir Little and/or Anfernee Simons representing the assets.

    Whiteside will probably leave at the end of the year anyway. Would either of the young players mentioned be appropriate value for Love? Would this be a steal for Portland, a mistake, or something in between?

    Love for Whiteside midseason, after Love has proved his health and Nurk is back, would be fine. But no way they get Simons. (I'm less adamant about Little, because I have a feeling he might be T-Rob mk. 2, but I hope to be proved wrong.) I think a lot depends on Dan Gilbert's recovery from his stroke. I have a feeling he would ask ridiculous sums for Love, because only someone who really overvalues him would've given him that contract.

    I'd let them have Trent Jr and Little if that deal were in the making but not Simons ..
