I know that Rasheed had been falling out of favor with the Blazers management and their focus had shifted to Zach to build the team around.
Any thoughts on this?
you could have a point there. Rahim has certainly been around the NBA longer, and definitely plays better defense. he's also a far superior passer and decision maker.Originally posted by <b>BLAZER PROPHET</b>!
I disagree. It's SAR.
how many points can you pencil in for the opposing teams forward positions? 50?Originally posted by <b>theWanker</b>!
any way you look at it, you should be able to pencil in 40 points and 18 boards from these two guys every night, which we certainly couldn't say when we had Wallace.
Reminds me of the old saying about money... it's not what you make, it's what you keep. You know how some posters list all the point guards that have gone off for career highs vs Damon, unfortunately I feel that this will now extend to opposing forwards as well. Reef has been in the league almost as long as Sheed, guess how many winning teams he's been on?Originally posted by <b>el_Diablo</b>!

You and me both...I can't believe some of these fans on this site, we finally get a young star and we want to send him pakcing immediately....baffles the mind.....and reguarding the topic thread, ZR is the franchise, no way its SAR.Originally posted by <b>Oldmangrouch</b>!
No, he is just the new designated scapegoat.
I knew this was coming, but I have to admit I was shocked at HOW FAST it occured. I log on today, and half the posts/threads are some variation on "trade Zach!"
I weep for the future of this franchise.
I don't see ZR having similar trade value to SAR... Shareef was just traded purely for cap space. Zach should be worth significantly more because of his age and his low contract amount.Originally posted by <b>Oldmangrouch</b>!
Here is the problem I have with the "trade Zach" talk.
Right now, Zach and SAR have roughly equal value. SAR is at his peak; Zach can still get better and his work ethic makes it likely that he will. Also, Zach has the more "cap friendly" contract.
