LA is averaging 20.5/7.5/2.8apg/0.9spg/1.2bpg, sure his fg% has dropped to .442 but is that a product of LA's decision to play away from the rim or is it where he is recieving the ball on the court - more of a combination of a new system and also a product of playing with a rookie pg. Blazers have a great core of LA, Lillard, Wesley and Batum to build together. JJs also been playing well. The team needs more depth and time to tweak their system they'll be fine. Stupid article

Man, Toby must be going craaaaaaaaaazy with annoyance
If we're talking "1-dimensional" I don't think that Millsap deserves to be in that conversation. He's as multifaceted as you get at the PF spot.
