Were Back, with a hand up in your face!
So the season and the Finals are finally over, and the Draft is coming up this week. So we decided to start bringing it back to you guys. Already we have heard a lot of rumors about trades, draft picks, pretty much every scenario possible.
So lets catch up…
Rudy Fernandez is on board! This is great news. I have not heard if he will be playing in Vegas this summer or not. I would assume so.
GO, is ready to tear heads off. He is stronger, bigger, more refined then ever. He has been working on his hands, quickness, and a sweet 12 foot jump shot. We have heard from many sources that they think Greg is the strongest center in the game right now.
Channing Frye, he is looking great. He has been working on facing up, and spreading his game out. He has been working a lot at his three point shot. He is trying to work on playing a big 3, Like a Sheed, or Mehmet Okur type. Which is great. We love Channing and we cant wait to see what he has added to his arsenal.
Now we have not heard a lot about the other guys McRob has been training with GO in Indy, but other then that just straight trade rumors.
You probably have heard them all as well, but lets do a quick recap of whats been hitting the regular gravy train of crap theories, from all the guys that have a bit of TOD. (Touch of Downs)
As always our man Trout is up on the block according to the Columbian, the Oregonian, and many other sources. It seems like an on going thing to put Trout up on the block. Mike Miller has been linked to this trade as well. Either it be a Jarrett Jack, Trout, trade for Mike Miller, or a Jarrett Jack, Martell Webster. We think that this would not be a good trade. Maybe a Jarrett Jack, Martell Webster, for Mike Miller would work out for us, but makes no sense for Memphis. Martell and JJ are not proven enough for another team to give up one of their leading scorers. So I say bunk, on this trade. But at the same time they have one of the dumbest GM’s in the game. (GASOL, BROWN Trade.)
Second is the Martell, plus the 13th pick, for Leandro Barbosa. Which would be nice, but I don’t see that happening either. Same reason as the first trade rumor. Barbosa is proven. Martell is great, he can do a lot, but it makes no sense to me.
If we are going to move someone we need a Point, or a stunning 3 point shooter. Mike Miller is that shooter, but to me Trout should not even be on the table. Unless we are talking a Chauncey Billups, TJ Ford, like point coming to town. But Trout is Trout, he is only going to get better. That guy is going to have an insane season this year. He could easily be the leading scorer of the Blazers if got the minutes. He is our Kobe killer, and he fills that void.
To me this is all part of KP’s mind control scheme on other GM’s. He loves it. To me I think it is funny he is even having all these pre draft tryouts. I think we all feel like he is going to probably trade out for a Vet. Or which I hope. My trust is in that guy, look what he has done for us so far.
Now to the part we all hate. Who we need to drop even though we might love them.
Jarrett Jack, sorry but we all love him at times, but he is not setup for us. He needs to go, and we need a tried and true point.
Raef, sucking up money like crazy, not producing anything except an ass print on the bench. Somebody will most likely pick him up, I see something possibly going on with New Jersey. They want expiring contracts bad, Raef is up after this season, so New Jersey would have to pay him his 12.2mil for only a season. Good for us.
To me these are the guys that should have U-Haul on speed dial.
Jarrett Jack, Sergio, Martell, Raef, McRob, Steve Blake.
This is going to be such an exciting Week, the BoomSHAK will be all over the rumor mill and the Draft. Get ready folks, we might see something huge, or we might not see anything. But KP is aggressive, and he is the best GM in my mind. He is a straight HUSTLER. So keep your eyes and ears open! I truly see something big happening.
To kill some time listen to this great interview with Channing Frye. Smart guy, and gives some great insight to GO’s game.
