    There is a big difference between someone who is a bad person and someone who lacks motivation at times on the court. Whiteside and CJ are friends. CJ has already told him on twitter how it's gonna be here.

    I have no doubt that Whiteside will be fine here. I actually think he'll flourish.

    Dudes got more rings then the entire Blazers organization, took a step back from being the Alpha so that Lebron could be the lead dog, thats good leadership and hard to do.

    You might have better luck cutting it into rags and using them as such. Haha

    He can change a game defensively and score down low. Banter was good on the O side but not great on the D side really.
    Whitened moves really well on weak side help which is huge for this team.

    Self aware king Meyers is probably trying to get a goodbye message published in the players tribune as we speak, sponsored by the ML brand®️of course.

    Thank god I don’t have to see any more of his hammer emojis and shirtless pics popping up on this forum again.

    I’ll kinda miss Moe. He didn’t annoy me as much. He was more just frustrating.

    I have about 15 high quality rags for sale.

    Any buyers? Prefer to sell as one lot and not pc out if possible.

    KLove is a better asset than Whiteside, so this tells me we probably tried to offer this same package for him and it got declined. Whiteside isn't a terrible consolation prize, but I'm not over the moon about it.

    KLove isn’t an asset. Who wants that contract? Whiteside is a huge expiring. That’s always an asset.

    This is not true.... Love's contract is a disaster. I do agree i'd rather have Love over whiteside all things being equal, but they're not

    I'm hoping Stotts will utilize Whiteside's talents and get the best out of him.

    When Whiteside came into his prime with Miami, Wade left for the next 2 1/2 years and then came back for his farewell tour plus 21 games. That's not steady leadership and although Wade was an outstanding player, I think Lillard is actually a better true leader.

    Every big that's come here has gotten better....Big Ed...hell even Kaman gave us some great games off the bench...Rolo...I have no doubt our staff will get the best out of Whiteside.....he's not shootin' 3s anytime soon in my view...he's getting the clank3s and stuffin' em back in the basket
