Poll Results: The Return of Martell Webster

Our most recent poll posed a simple question to you asking whether or not you thought the return of Martell Webster would be a good thing or a bad thing.  Your answers:

Pretty telling results wouldn't you say?  Many of you really want to see Martell return which I tend to disagree with. 

My Take:

The kid just turned 22 the other day and for his career is averaging 8.2 points, 3.1 rebounds,  and 0.8 assists per game.  Hmmm.  For a 6th overall pick, that is not exactly what we all expected is it?  The one decent stat you'll see with him would be the career 40% three point percentage.

At this point, the team is sitting at 14-7 and has pretty much looked like a top 5 team in the west.  There is a rhythm starting to form that teams usually don't find until the 2nd or 3rd month of the season and when a former starter comes back from an injury, you completely jeopardize that. Especially one that has been under performing his entire career.

I'm on the Batum bandwagon.  Trade Outlaw, put Martell with the second unit or something.

**Update** - Martell is likely playing today!  We'll see how it goes!

Your thoughts?

Martell's improved defense will be a nice addition to the second unit if he plays today. Toronto has a weak bench so that is one area the Blazers can really take advantage

This team just has too many log jams. Well the PG log jam is sort of gone since Bayless isn't really playing. But this jam at SF could be awkward and it makes me a little nervous.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
