    I noticed in the Clipper game he had like 9 or 10 boards...if he concentrated on rebounding instead of lofting up shitacular 3's, would that make his presence on the team palatable to you?

    You mean, if he decided to just be a center?

    That'd be phenomenal. Never gonna happen.

    In my opinion, the c/pf rotation is: Aminu (Swanigan), Nurkic as 1st option. Bench: Aminu or Swanigan(one of them, starters) Vonleh. Collins or Ed Davis.
    Meyers will play like 7 - 11 minutes per game and if can not destroy us in this time, im ok with that. I dont believe he will be good.

    They try him at that position it was a failure couple of years ago. If he gets in the game like someone already said go in the game and concentrate one thing that he can make positive impact.

    What could meyers do? Well he could do the right thing and tear up his contract with the Blazers. In fact he could hold a press conference at pioneer square, and apologize to the fans, not in his usual long ended rambles, but in a few short concrete sentences. Then after his apology he can stand with contract in hand and rip it to shreads.

    Last game he came in and got 10 boards and of course it was against there lower bench players. But it was positive to him and that what he needs more positive happening for him on the floor. Who knows it might give some confidence as player. I am not big fan of him but if he does do positive things in the game I will say good things about him but of course it goes both ways. That any player we got on team it same goes for them.

    Yes although he did make a 3, and from watching the game on line I can say that most of his rebounds either came to him because he happened to be under the basket, or he hustled for the loose ball. I don't recall him battling anyone for them. So that part is still a question mark in my mind. But none the less I would prefer if he stayed close to the basket.

    In his 15 minutes of fame against Memphis, he did more than just nail open threes. He was gobbling up rebounds against one of the best rebounding front lines. Myers absolutely has it in him. The problem is figuring out what all else is in him, e.g. bouncing around in that delicate noggin'.

    It's crazy to think that he was on the same arc as CJ at that point.

    Would be a great volleyball player. Especially beach volleyball. Could take his shirt off, get a nice tan, would be perfect actually.

    I know aim
    Agree with this. He will start racking up DNP-CD’s soon. Stotts has been a little bit handcuffed in having to play Meyers but now with the two rookies and Ed Davis things are different.
