Man they are really gonna surprise alot of teams this year.

09-24-2008, 05:15 PM
^^ No

if livingston plays well that makes portlands team so much scarier

09-24-2008, 05:19 PM
I can't believe nobody else wanted to take a chance on him. this may bite alot of teams in the arse. I still think he can be a decent contributer IMO.

09-24-2008, 05:20 PM
why no?

09-24-2008, 05:34 PM
It's looking like they are going to have too many guards. How are they going to get playing time for all those people? Injuries you say? Yes, injuries.

Good pick up though, I was really surprised that he was out there that long. Portland is going to be mean this year, can't wait to hear the Rose Garden go off.

09-24-2008, 05:49 PM
Depends on how much they paid for him whether it is a good pickup or not...

They are going to have WAYYY to many guards.

Maybe a trade is coming?

Who knows.

09-24-2008, 06:56 PM
^^Roy, Fernandez, or Bayless arent moving

09-24-2008, 06:57 PM
Livingston is at least a year from contributing anything. They have too many young players in my opinion. Where is he going to get minutes to develop??? He would have been much better going to Miami or Minnesota.

09-24-2008, 06:58 PM
Pritchard continues to take a giant s**t on the league. Can somebody please wipe his ***? This has been going on since the '06 draft.

idk why they signed him, i would've rather kept Koponen...

09-24-2008, 08:55 PM
good pick up IMO

09-24-2008, 09:13 PM
Mmm isnt there some english phrase for this..... mmmm ah YEAH


ant they have gone with 15!!! cooks 3 for each position with at least another 2 being able to play another secondary Position.

This is going to Explode in blazers face, young and talented players dont like playing 20 minutes a game and cutting their Personal Progresions.

nice sign

Livingston is a huge wild card at this point. You don't know how he will turn out after this injury he suffered. There is no doubt in my mind that he will be cautious when he first starts playing again, which could lead to him not being very successful. He was looking real good with LAC before he went down though, and they held him in very high regards. Who knows, maybe he will pan out perfectly for the Blazers.

09-24-2008, 10:04 PM
Pritchard signed him, it will work out fine.

That man is ridiculous.

09-24-2008, 10:12 PM
Big wild card signing. Hopefully he'll be able to contribute.

09-24-2008, 10:32 PM
Hopefully, Livingston can get back to playing significant mins. again, he had a lot of potential. I don't see why Portland would sign him, they have way too many guards.

09-24-2008, 10:45 PM
Pritchard signed him, it will work out fine.

That man is ridiculous.

Agreed. I don't like the Livingston signing but the last time I questioned Pritchard was when he traded Foye for Roy. I thought Foye was more explosive and therefore favored to have the better NBA career.

Pritchard 1
Ansy 0

I think I'll trust him on this for now :-D

I doubt he contributes much this year. But if he can come back and his potential can still be reached. Livingston > Bayless.

09-25-2008, 03:33 PM
He could be very good for them at PG if recovers from his injury well.

09-25-2008, 03:56 PM
I doubt Livingston will play much this year anyways, he needs to do a lot of work to get his game back. But having him on the bench, competing in practice, etc, helps Livingston in his return and gives Portland the rights if he ever does find his form. With the logjam at the guard spot, I don't see how Livingston gets many minutes this year. Just another asset for a great young team. Good signing.
