I've been saying this a bit, I wouldn't mind using the pick on Marshall and have Nash mentor him for 2-3 years. We could be set at the PG spot for a long time.

well if we keep eddy d and or JJ that would be a possibility no? Or maybe DD. who know how they'll do next year, and whether they'll be expendable or not.

I've heard a lot about Marshall for PG of the future. I'm glad he's pass first and all and he seems to do that quite well. But I would hope the lack of slashing ability on this team still gets addressed at other positions, because he does not seem like that kind of player....and that aspect is quite weak on this team.


And I'll ask this....would you move Ed Davis for him right now? I think your opinion on that might answer some of who he is also.

I would go after Nash & Telfair.

Telfair is hungry and ready to explode - and he could probably be had for 4-5 mil.

Why would you grab Nash AND Telfair if he'll be playing behind Nash just like in PHO?

Nash is only going to be playing 20-24 minutes a game in a few years.

Telfair > Bayless

I can't see Collangelo going after any PG who might not be happy with getting the ball to Bargnani on every possession.

It's always amazing to me how much we cut up our players constantly, and everyone elses players would fit perfect.

People should ask Tobey and other Blazer fans if they would have liked Bayless on their team this year.

I'm not really a Bayless fan, but he's not total shit. Too bad he has t-rex arms.

this is the only time I've called out one of our players for being ass. Tunnel vision and "t-rex arms" won't cut it for a PG. I watch this guy play and I cringe every time he shoots one of those pull up three pointers.

Yeah, our 2nd best 3PT shooter this past season I believe. I'm not a huge fan either but he's not that bad.

I'm interested to see what kind of players our guys would transform into with Nash by their side. I think Jose is holding everyone back from blossoming, I hope we get Nash.

Jose is doing fine, it's more like anyone who plays beside Nash looks like a good player. Look at Channing Frye...

So much JB hate but then the opposite reaction/attitude is given towards a similar player in Brandon Jennings. Anyhow, Bayless is the only player on the raps who can break down opposing teams' d .

Hey, you know what, it's better to have a pg who is more conservative than the omnibus crime bill, can't break down opposing teams' d, is a horrid defender, and opposing PGs don't even have to guard because he'll never do anything with the ball.

Excuse me if I take Casey's side on this one.
