With Adelman having visions of Rubio/Shved backcourt I I doubt they make a significant move for a SG. I would not be surprised if they go with Rubio & Shved starting and Ridnour, Barea, Lee sharing backup minutes at both positions based on matchups or going with the hot hand.

What do you guys think about Shane Battier? Could we make Heat interested in a trade involving him? I think he's a perfect fit - bbiq, elite defense, hustles, 3 point shooting (especially from corner), 3 mil salary in this and next season, doesn't need to play many minutes so there's minutes for Shved, plays huge under pressure. He's very experienced, has nice attitude and work ethic. Also, he played for Adelman in Rockets. I think he's everything we need. I'd even give Dante or Bud for such a player. So, what do you guys think?

In a game between the Rockets and San Antonio Spurs in the 2007‚Äď08 season in which he was assigned to guard Manu Gin√≥bili, because Gin√≥bili was playing off the bench and his minutes were not in sync with those of typical NBA starters, Battier went to Rockets coach Rick Adelman before the game and asked to be kept out of the starting lineup and substituted in whenever Gin√≥bili entered the game. Rockets general manager Daryl Morey later said about the incident, ‚ÄúNo one in the NBA does that. No one says put me on the bench so I can guard their best scorer all the time.‚ÄĚ

IShotTheMaid wrote:The perfect starting 2-guard for the wolves would be a guy like Wesley Matthews IMO. Just a solid all around player with no major weaknesses. But the main reason I want him for this team is for his defensive ability. Although there seems to be some bad blood between the Wolves and Blazers. But it'd be awesome to land Matthews using the trade pieces Minny has in Barea/Williams/Ridnour/picks..... A 3rd team is probably needed though.

But this roster would deadly at 100%:

Ricky Rubio - Barea or Ridnour
Wesley Matthews - Alexey Shved - Malcolm Lee
Andrei Kirilenko - Chase Budinger - Josh Howard
Kevin Love - Dante Cunningham - Lou Amundson
Nikola Pekovic - Greg Stiemsma

This team is close....Just need Rubio back and possibly a guy like Matthews.


Unfortunately the Blazers don't want anything to do with us.

Adelman didn't have much in the way of options at SG (Johnson and Ellington). He does like having two guards who can handle the ball but I don't think he is married to the idea of ridnour or Barea being that second guard.

I didn't really mean we did right now....but in the future. Budinger/Roy will be back this season, Shved has shown he needs minutes as well. If we traded Shved/Dwill for 2 more SGs we would definitely have a logjam.


Must be nice to have that kind of childish innocence, but please, give up on Roy. He probly shouldnt walk more than a couple blocks a day so to think that he'd be any kind of factor to the team when he gets back is foolishness. And since we paid him 5 Mill he'd better wheel his ass to practice and show Lee how to shoot, tell love that everyone in Portland calls him a cry baby so hopefully he'd stop complaining to refs and then RETIRE so we can pickup another body.

I doubt Love really cares what people in Portland, outside of his family, think of him.

and why exactly would Love retire. That post was very difficult to read.

I'm thinking Barea for Courtney Lee straight up. Or maybe Barea and a 2nd round pick. Seems like it would give Boston another backup to Rondo and they could move Barbosa to SG off the bench. Plus Barea has 1 less year on his contract than Lee and he and Terry played together in Dallas.

Anyone think Boston would have interest in that?

Guess I should have been clearer about who I was talking about but it should be obvious.unless Love or Lee have some sort of career ending condition I don't know about.

I was pretty high on Courtney Lee too but looking at our own Lee and his performance there's no real point in trading for him now.Id be interested in Getting Fab Melo form them though.

Really? You think this is obvious?

tell love that everyone in Portland calls him a cry baby so hopefully he'd stop complaining to refs and then RETIRE so we can pickup another body.

Seeing as how I was talking about Roy you should have been able to jump to that conclusion on your own without me pointing it out. But I guess if someone said the Brute on our team you'd need them to say Pek excuse me Nikola Pekovic in order for you to know who they were referring to because it could be JJ or Luke right?

As long as Roy is here he needs to make himself useful or better yet just retire so we can sign someone else.

You said:

"Tell Love" - this says you're talking about Love.
"that everyone in Portland calls him a crybaby" - Never heard Roy described that way once.
"so hopefully he'd stop complaining to refs and then RETIRE" - Never known Roy as one to complain to refs.

How exactly are you referring to Roy here? See where we might be confused?

Hahahaha it is so obvious, and written correctly - Roy should tell Love all those things and teach Lee to shoot, and retire. The following posts also follow that thought. xD

Anyways, any thoughts on Shane Battier thing I mentioned?

I really hate to be the grammar police, but how am I supposed to understand you when you don't use proper grammar. I have an easier time understanding lobi than you, and English isn't his first language. It was almost like your commas and periods were switched around.

Man OJ Mayo would have looked awesome on this team. Too bad that ship has sailed. With no bird rights if we trade for him, I don't see how we could get him and keep him.
