Blazers Blazers trade PG Andre Miller for Raymond Felton

ummmm ya, I'm a little stoked. I don't think a lotta folks over here realize how good Felton played last year. Real solid player with youth still on his side. I feel it's a good move by our team. A very nice upgrade in my opinion. Andre is tough as nails, but struggles shooting outside 14 feet. Felton will be able to spread the floor better, and do a little better job on defense. Miller's game has slowed on both ends of the floor.

don't pay much attention to the Nuggets. I know Lawson is the starter

Kinda surprising they'd take a deal like that, figured Felton would of had more value.

Ya blazers would be my pick for years if Roy and Oden would stay healthy (obvious reasons why they can't) they'd have an insane team.

Either of hill or Felton would have been nice here. That's part of why I wanted to see more picks. We might have gotten some nice offers. Oh well. It's all about getting some talent slowly but surely.

I hope Coach Karl is ready for a massive Miller hissyfit when he puts Lawson in the starting lineup over Andre.

I'm excited over here. Fools is trippin' and thinkin' we did something crappy. We got this whole Bobcat/Blazer All-Team thing going on right now. I definately see us winning more then 48 games, and shit, if Oden and Roy can come back somewhat healthy??? We'll be making Kobe think about throwing in the towel a year or 2 sooner then expected.

Patty Mills throws at least one airball per contest, and Armon Johnson can't go right. We needed a new point guard and couldn't simply hand over the reins.

Last I heard Felton averaged 18 n 9 before the Knicks slung him last year. Name me other point guards putting up #'s like that.

And hey, why did the Knicks take a nose dive in the standings last year after getting rid of Felton?

Shit, if Portland wasn't already stacked enough.

Aldridge, Roy, Wallace, Felton, Mathews, Oden, Camby, Batum, and a whole bunch of other youngsters. They go deep, especially in NBA 2k11.

Yeah i would agree, Lawson is their starter and Felton even though good, deserves to start on an NBA team. Btw wasnt Miller on the Nuggets before? I beleive he was involved in the Allen Iverson deal that sent Iverson to Denver, and Miller to Philly. If denver resigns Nene i think they will still be the better team. At least Felton reunites with Wallace, from their days in Charlotte
