    It does worry me a little that Whiteside comes across as completely insane pretty much every time I hear him talk.

    you call that insane?

    you need to have a couple of dinners with my in-laws; that would re-calibrate your insane-o-meter

    Not just here, but here too.... Whiteside seems stable to you? Every time I hear him speak, I cringe.

    Maybe insane is the wrong word. How about chronically immature?

    Strikes me as a big kid that thinks he has to act silly on camera? Maybe when it’s grownup time he handles his business accordingly?

    He treats Snapchat the way it’s supposed to be treated; a joke.

    In normal interviews he sounds fine

    He still sounds like an immature 18 year old. Not someone that just hit 30.

    I don’t think it’s a secret that Whiteside is a bit on the unstable side personality-wise. Dame even alluded to it in his interview on Rachel Nichols’ show last week after he got the big extension. He was talking about conversations he’s had with Whiteside and he said, “I’m from Oakland. I know real crazy people.”

    So you are saying he will blend in just fine in Portland?

    He handed out Voodoo donuts to the homeless. Two of Portland's biggest claims to fame.

    I'd say he's already blended.

    Hey Guys Q? If Whitside plays lights out this year and obviously Collins is still considered our future then how does this team salvage this trio come next year? Do we have what it takes to keep all 3?

    Blazers own full-Bird rights on all three so, sure, they could theoretically keep all three. But they couldn't afford all three nor would either of Nurkic/Whiteside be happy being a backup

    ideally, Nurkic comes back playing effective enough that Portland can consider trading Whiteside for an upgrade somewhere else. At the same time it may be that Portland doesn't want to trade an expiring contract because they need to get out of the repeater tax track and next summer offers that opportunity

    I’m just gonna post this here instead of bumping or starting a Meyers thread

    Can a mod please get his twitter feed off the main page? I don’t think anybody is interested in that cornball anymore, thanks.
