    Depending on what we have to pay him, agreed.

    I don't care about the cash.... @THE HCP wants to win.

    If the salary cap, luxuary tax, and ownership weren't a thing, I would care about contracts either.

    Sadly, obtaining overpaid players often hurts our chances of winning.

    Much like what I said about Hart, I like Powell, but he is not starting for the Clippers, and he is playing SF for them now that they have Eric Gordon. So I guess my point is.....who the fuck cares. He is good but easily replaced. I only dwell on past Blazers who are difference-makers, because we have decent role players.

    My preference if we are bringing a high-paid player off the bench is to start Sharpe next year at SG and bring Simons off the bench. (With Thybulle)

    yeah....I remember one and done playoff runs with Norm....and he had that with the Clips last year, cost us a frickin' first round pick too! Nice dude I'm sure but not a SF by any stretch nor a closer.

    Didn’t he score 29 in our only playoff win they had while he was a Blazer?

    Unfortunately, they were rolling with 6’10 Michael Porter Jr. at the 3, who Powell had to defend. I remember CJ doing nothing in that game

    I have never seen you have a good take.

    Load management kwahi had the most minutes of his career yet you don't mention it.

    Maybe one day you'll have a good take. Maybe.

    I don't remember back then but I watched him tank the series against the Pels and blow a layup that would've won the game...Norm is not a bad basketball player, he's just not clutch from what I've seen. I know he was way undersized but he didn't have that Josh Hart hunger or motor on defense that I thought he'd bring....I don't miss him

    Wish I could’ve watch he and Lillard in the backcourt together. They would’ve complimented each other well.

    We saw him at SG when CJ had his collapsed lung. It wasn't great. Defense was awful

    Those games don't count, just imagine what could have been.

    Nice 3-point shooting by the Pelicans in the first half.
    CJ and his buddies doing their part to put the Knicks in the playoffs.

    Just amazing watching the Bucks play defense even without Giannis.

    Hard to believe that in a division with the Clippers, Lakers, Phoenix, and GS.....that the Kings are in 1st. Three of those teams were considered legitimate contenders before the start of the season.

    Pels are wildly mid without Zion. BI isn’t ‘Him.’ Glad the narrative is getting corrected.

    Yeah, they were much better last year without him. I guess they have been scouted.........
