Still on the trade block.

Fell out of favor in the playoffs again. Seems to happen every year.

Will probably be moved for a pick or two I would imagine.

What can this guy bring to a team??

Do you think he is better suited at C or PF??

What team would you like to see him on??

Let's not forget the guy is still 22 or whatever. He has a long career ahead of him.

pretty sure he entered the league at 22. dont quote me tho. with his knees he doesnt not have a long career ahead of him sadly

he just turned 23 a few months ago

so i would assume he has some years left, but who knows with his knees.

He hasnt missed very many games the last 3 years

Definitely better suited at PF. The Raps don't need him, but I think he'd look good beside a perimeter scoring C.

I hate the Spurs and thanks to him and Matt bonner we all have a shot at beating them so I hope they keep him.

Blair is a good player but just to small.

Blair has regressed every year. He's takes bad shots and has trouble scoring in the post. He's also rebounding less each year. I think that screams "knee problems".

if obama entered the league for wizards or bobcats, would he be captain?

No cartilage on his knees says otherwise.

And spurs needed the time on teh court to invest on Splitter who is the better player with better potential.

Blair is the ideal backup PF/C you want on your team.
He can bring a lot to the table coming off the bench, if there were room on my team I'd love to have him.

I've never read anything about him lacking cartilage in his knees, rather he doesn't have any ACLs in his knees. No cartilage would be much worse because running would cause bone-on-bone stress. Contrary to popular belief, in sports medicine a lot of athletes are opting to reconstruct their knees without ACLs because they only play a role in lateral movement. For a forward like Blair lateral movement isn't a big deal, but for Rose and Shumpert you can see how lack of ACLs would be an issue.

i hope he gets traded or learns how to knock down a mid ranger. i thought for sure he'd get traded to the cavs or sixers before the draft.

Just the term "no acl's" has always frightened people, I would imagine. That is why he slipped in the draft. The playoffs with the Spurs was a mystery to me, though. There is something more than meets the eye there. Talent wise, hes a solid energy guy.

He has cartilage in his knees, he has no ACLs though...

To be honest, it's not a problem untill it's a problem and to this point in his career, it hasn't been a problem.
