Keep the big fella happy, maybe he stays longer, boosts Portland's team everyone's happy. It's not a knock against Jack but if you have the chance to get two guys with chemistry like those two why not do it?
    Greg Oden will play his tail off even if he doesn't have Conley. He just expressed how much he loved playing with Conley and how he would love to keep doing it. If he loved it that much he and Conley could've stayed at OSU. Portland would have to give up quite a bit to get #3, they should just be happy with Oden and ODen should be happy with being the #1 pick. There's no need to make any blockbuster deals when you have the core of great players the Blazers do.

      sure, I'll post that soon, and funny thing is Conley when interviewed just laughed about it and would rather not play with Oden. He said how Oden is his best friend but he has been in his shadow in high school and thought that the NBA could finally be the time when he could become his own player, but at the same time wouldn't be mad playing with him again.

      • Player Comparisons

        We can all agree to disagree, but here are my player comparisons, very different from others on some players.

        *Brandan Wright:Jerome Moiso, let's not downplay how great Moiso was coming out. I just see Wright falling into the same trap. Both were drooled upon by scouts because of size and athleticism but neither had great skills or overall body strength, many will disagree but the KG and Bosh comparisons IMO are rediculous.
        *Jeff Green:Mix of Antawn Jamison and Ron Artest
        *Al Horford:Nene
        *Mike Conley Jr.:Tony Parker, Both are the same size, lightning quick, Parker too was a bad shooter coming in, both have an innate ability to finish inside with the big boys, and neither are amazing passers. Parker was not this aggressive on offense coming into the league.
        *Joakim Noah:Anderson Varejao, both are idiots.
        *Julian Wright:Marvin Williams
        *Thaddeus Young:Tracy McGrady
        *Acie Law: Damon Stoudemire
        *Javarris Crittenton:Vonteego Cummings, this is Cummings as a prospect, I really do believe Crittenton will be the best PG in this class, I agree with Charm that he has a little Penny in him.
        *Tiago Splitter: Daniel Santiago
        *Morris Almond:Paul Pierce
        *Marc Gasol-Rasho Nesterovic
        *Aaron Brooks-John Lucas III/Bimbo Coles
        *Gabe Pruitt:Steve Francis
        *DJ Strawberry:Larry Hughes
        *Jared Dudley:Ryan Gomes
        *Taurean Green:Anthony Roberson
        *Adam Haluska:Matt Carroll
        *Ali Traore:Ronny Turiaf
        *Sean Singletary:Terrell Brandon
        *Dominic McGuire:Andre Iguodala
        *Russell Carter:Rashad McCants

        • Who would compare KG to Wright? I don't see that at all. What about Shawn Kemp?

              Kemp was a joke right? I'm not good with sarcasm. And trust me hundreds have compared Wright to Garnett.

                KG is much more perimeter oriented then Wright will ever be. Wright is a low post guy right now with few outside skills.

                    It's down to Conley, Horford, Yi, probably in that order.

                    • With all this talk about Shane Battier being moved, I'm really pissed as hell that we even got him! We gave up the #8 pick and Stromile Swift for this 10 ppg player... Rediculous! Now if we have him moved, that trade looks even more so like a robbery by Memphis. We should trade our #26 pick for Jarrett Jack, we needa PG!!!

                        He does a lot of stuff that doesn't show up in the box score. Plus, he's not gonna get a lot of shots with Yao and McGrady there.

                            If Conley is there you have to consider although it is very unlikely, but a starting lineup of Conley, Foye, Craig Smith, KG, and Mark Blount aint too bad. I actually think although some would call it a reach, Javaris Crittenton would be the perfect pick. At 6-5 he is the perfect sized PG to pair with the undersized Foye. Although if a Jeff Green or Julian Wright is there it would be a great pick, I really love Craig Smith and think they are better off going PG in Crittenton or C in Horford obviously if he drops but more likely Spencer Hawes.

                              Bingo. He did more for our team than Stro/*** could even imagine to do last season.
                              The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                              “We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. We’ve shown we’ve been able to do that.” - Jabari Greer

                                Wright really scares me. For a tall, long, athletic low post guy with not many skills outside, he has very little bulk on him. If he was really tough and intense on the court it would be one thing, but I really could see him getting pushed around big time in the league.
