Batum is playing really well. Sometimes it takes people some time to notice especially since very few people catch the Portland games. Portland has some real talent.
For what it is worth I must say that Danilo Gallinari (Yes I'm a fan) is playing equally as well as Batum and he hardly gets any notice as well.

I'm always happy to discuss anything from hoops, to hockey, to reality TV with anyone that is polite regardless of their opinion. With that said if you are disrespectful, dishonest, or an extremist type poster I may not waste my time replying to you.
