    Why would you choose to be so inaccurate? Are you trying to give yourself absolutely zero credibility? When we traded Josh Hart we got back Reddish, Thybulle and a first round draft pick.

    Agreed.
    I think Hart is a slightly better defender 1v1. Also, part of defending is grabbing the damn rebound. Hart is >>> Grant in that aspect.

    Winning doesn't cure all.
    He's still coming off the bench - but he's not living in Portland. From what I understood, that was THE primary factor on wanting the trade (to be closer to his wife's family).

    I think if we were winning the way Dame wants we'd have been able to keep Hart

    You sir are correct. Hart is the EXACT type of player Dame wants on his squad.

    Hart said his wife doesn't like to fly, and didn't like being so far away from friends and family.

    So what you're saying is that the problem was Anfernee (or possibly Billups), not Hart.

    It’s not anyone’s fault, per se.

    Newsflash, the Trailblazers suck today. They sucked only slightly less this past season with Dame balling out then they did last season without him.

    Yes, Portland has an All Star at the tail end of an amazing career. He's publically stated he wants contending level vet talent around him or he's out. Portland lacks the means to acquire that level of talent this offseason unless they win the lotto. Assuming they do, are you for trading VW for the multiple stud vets Dame requires?

    Dame will be just fine playing alongside VW. If he's not he'll request out and we won't have to worry about what we want to do.

    Trading Ant and a couple first rounders should be able to get us another contending level vet.

    Dame, Sharpe, Grant, VW, Nurk is a hell of a lineup.
    And you can replace Sharpe or Nurk with the contending level vet you trade Ant for.
