They will be my pick to win it all, but not by a huge margin like KD Warriors. I'm not very high on PG, and non-Kawhi players are a bunch of scrappy and/or unproven players. If all of Kawhi, PG, and Lou Williams are healthy come playoff time, it's hard to see them losing 4 games in a series, but they will be mildly tested.

I don't think Lou will be on the team by the end of the season

Yuk he's a great trade asset. :x

Which player do you think they'll go after Mos :x

Dedmon, Favors, maybe Sabonis

Oh yeah forgot that they're thin at front Mos.

I suspected that they'd go after a star to form a big 3 using Lou and Montrezl Harrell or Zubac or something like that. I guess it doesn't make sense for them to gut their roster for another star and they don't have picks IIRC.

I was just coming here to ask if anyone else is reading Blazers articles about He Who Shall Not Be Named. I always look at the comments section to see what the fans are saying. So many of them are still denial. I can't lie, there's a certain amount of glee I've been deriving from watching them slowly realize that they traded for an absolute turd.

Holy ****, I can't believe Riley managed that trade. Leonard alone provides better value. I see some Blazers fans talking about that bum not needing to contribute much on the offensive side, so long as he defends. Oh boy, they're in for a rude awakening when he drops his pacifier and starts complaining in the media about not getting touches. I can't wait for them to see him turning the ball over by keeping the ball low, not setting proper screens despite being one of the largest men on the floor, missing a ton of FTs in crucial moments, and just plain disappearing from everywhere except the post-game media scrum, where he likes to complain.

Welcome to our last few years of hell, Portland. Your GM dun goofed.

Yep, too much bodies would be lost in the process

I feel bad for Zion, but fans were expressing concern for his weight since SL, if not before that. He might want to consider going with a plant-based diet, and getting shredded down to a more sustainable size. He's definitely not as lean as he could be. His frame is such that he'll still be a really big dude while lean, so I think the Pels training staff needs to put serious thought into that. The Heat staff would never let him take the court looking like he currently does. Hell, JJ would have been considered in great shape for most teams, and the Heat still sent him home to get into Heat shape.

Basically this. It's why I hoped Miami landed the #1.

Here is a preseason review of HW, here https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.blazersedge.com/platform/amp/2019/10/16/20915810/blazers-nba-hassan-whiteside-preseason

Short version he hurt and they are not sure if it's motivation or dumbass-ness to blame. In other words same sh!# different uniform.
