    re the ball hog note, He was touted as a playmaker coming out of school—not a shooter or defender but someone who handled the ball and got others involved. Portland has one guy like that on their team rn—idk if brogdon or ant fit that description in a proper sense.

    Ballhog ?? did anyone actually watch Dalano's first game? He's playing with several teammates that struggle creating their own shot. Drive kick pass only works for 24 seconds. Eventually somebody has to shoot the ball.

    At his size, he can do some things no other frontcourt Blazer can do.

    After seeing him a couple games he reminds me of Shaun Livingston with a better 3 point shot.

    Really? What I've seen is for every couple of decent plays he makes he has a shockingly bad one. I can attribute that to inexperience. However, I was thoroughly disgusted by the lazy playground shit he put on display, on offense and on defense, in the last few minutes of the Wolves game. If he can't screw his head on and take this opportunity more seriously than that, he'll never make it in the league.

    Me too. If you have any pull, we’d be happy to add SGA and Jamal Murray to our collection of Canadian ex-pats.

    If we signed Danilo Gallinari we could see Danilo to Dalano assist.
