    Either Collins is being moved for Love...

    Or Collins is the starting PF...

    Blazers didn't have to throw in a pick to move either player, however, @swish3 will be leaving Portland for sunny Miami!

    Not a fan of his overall game or his past issues, but he protects the rim and he rebounds. Just what you need in the playoffs. Especially off the bench when the backups are trying to get to the rim.

    For good or bad I hope so. Love that kids game even though he has a ton to learn. Throw him in the deep end!

    Fuck. Not good. Still, I guess people were just complaining that we were overstocked with wings and understocked with bigs.

    We'll miss Mo and Aminu MARK MY WORDS.

    We don’t have the money to match Loves contract - unless we’re dealing CJ.

    Blazers can't trade for Love now. They blew their load. Im ok with that. Collins is our starting 4.

    Unless they trade CJ, but come on

    People are actually unhappy with a trade that sends out Harkless and Meyers Leonard for a staring caliber center?

    All seriousness, I think Meyers is a good piece on a team without a center. The known unpredictability of Legend vs. the flammability/volatility of Whiteside.

    That said, with Hezonja and Whiteside, Dame/CJ/Ant better be practicing their Lobs.

    Whiteside averaged only 21 minutes per game and had 12 pts and 11 boards on average, up his minutes to 27-28 and easily he scoring 15+ 10+ rebounds in his sleep
