In the main forum there was a three way trade proposal someone made that i really liked
Denver Gets:LMA and Wes Matthews
Utah Gets:Iggy and Faried
Portland Gets:Al Jefferson, Gordon Haywood and a pick from utah
what do you guys think? I would do it in a heartbeat, we get an offensive low post presence and some shooting

Seen a thread in the NBA forum about worst +/- and so looked up the Nuggets. Obviously it doesn't tell you the whole story of whats going on on the court but still a good indicator.
Happy with 2K and the starters but dissapointed with McGee and Timo being our worst. So a big disparity between the Cs
I think sometimes we fall in love with young players and assume they will only get better and better. Like Lawson...Gallo...Not all these guys take that next step, sometimes they are what they are.
Faried is a really nice player, but he has no offensive game and really never has. If he never develops an offensive game he's really just a very good role player. LMA is a proven 20ppg player.
Now I don't think Faried alone would get LMA, but to say you wouldn't trade Faried for him is foolish IMO.
but you're overrating Faried and underrating LMA to try to make a point.
LMA out of the league? Really? based on waht? he's been in the league and productive for 8 years.
Double doubles are nice, but again, i'm not sure Faried will ever be more than a very good role player, and lets be honest, DEN has alot of those already.
i never really liked gallo to begin with so im ok with trading him for aldridge...as for aldridge having heart problems where did you hear that? if he had a "heart problem" he would not be playing right now...i think you're thinking of channing frye.....aldidge is not all that injury prone and what he brings to the table with his size, mid range game and his post game is a whole lot more than all our PF/C combined....i would be ok with trading gallo/faried for aldridge and matthews...both those guys put everything into the game night in and night out and both would be ridiculously good on this team...if we do get aldridge i kinda expect lawson's numbers to take a drop but his efficiency and assists to go up
I would be fine with trading anyone on this roster except faried. Faried is easily this teams MVP and brings it every night. Nuggets are easily sub .500 without faried. As for as gallo yeah he hasn't been as good since the season he got traded here where he showed some nice flashes

http://www.oregonlive.com/blazers/in...ey_eyes_t.htmlDuring the Blazers’ recent homestand, a respected and veteran beat reporter approached me and told me that an assistant coach for the team he covered said the Blazers are shopping LaMarcus Aldridge.
I chuckled, because earlier that night, I spoke with Olshey about the trading deadline, which is now eight weeks away. In a nutshell, Olshey said the Blazers will likely be built through the draft and free agency, not trades - and certainly not mid-season trades.
Still, on Wednesday before the Kings game, I felt obliged to corner the whirlwind that is Olshey.
I asked him directly if he is shopping Aldridge.
It was as if I had told Olshey the best joke he had ever heard. In fact, I think he is still laughing as I write this.
Olshey said he has made zero calls to other teams about Aldridge. He did say he has fielded one inquiry from another team, but it was more exploratory in nature, that team feeling the Blazers out. And he said he has no plans to make any future calls about Aldridge as February approaches.
That doesn’t mean Olshey doesn’t expect to get more calls. He senses the league might still perceive the Blazers to be a team willing to give up talent to gain assets, much like it did last March when the previous regime traded Gerald Wallace and Marcus Camby for picks and cap relief.
That is no longer the method of operation. Olshey has identified a core: Aldridge, Nicolas Batum, Damian Lillard and Matthews.
“The players on our roster who are no-brainers,’’ Olshey said, referring to that core, “are not going anywhere.’’
How about this for you guys?? Although it's probably no but
Also get PHX 1st this year(top 5 protected or 3 at least).
Gallo/Wilson/wes(expiring 5 mill)
Plus a lotto pick.
I would do it.
