Dame and cj fill the cap and turn into the Trash Bros at some point every year in the playoffs. Is the best solution to blow it up and acquire picks?
No, I don’t think they should blow up a team that makes the playoffs every single year and tank in the hopes that they can get 2 more players as good as Dame and CJ.
The Blazers are happy enough they’re a consistent playoff team, that’s a goal for a lot of small market teams like them
Portland fans, Lets say you could magically trade CJ for Khris Middleton. Is that an improvement?
Oh god yes. Massive improvement. Wed be stacked
Is that enough to get over the hump though?
No lol, if Portland tanks to a 15-20 win team, I’m not sure if they would be in Portland any longer
lol the blazers were valued the 13th most valuable NBA franchise. Not to mention one of the best fanbases in the NBA. Zero danger of the Blazers going anywhere
If Dame ever goes, a decent part of the fanbase might go too until Portland builds a quality team which could take years
Why risk it?
