Martell Webster Cleared for All Activities

Upon hearing the news that Martell Webster has been officially cleared for all basketball related activities I find myself flooded with a mixed bag of emotions and thoughts.  Is this a good thing for Portland or just another log pushed into the jam?

As a huge fan of Nicolas Batum and his surprising successes of the 2008-09 season, the last thing I want to see is him sent to the bench for guy who's never proven a damn thing in 3 completely underwhelming seasons.  A guy that's a below average three-point shooter, yet spoke of as the next coming of Ray Allen.  A guy that's a below average defender yet touted the next defensive stopper.  A guy that's ballhandling makes Travis Outlaw's look Steve Nash-like.

I keep hearing chatter from Blazers fans on their excitement of the return of Martie, and I'm still trying to figure out where it's coming from.  Is it because we'd all take anyone at this point over Travis Outlaw?  Is it because he was the last draft pick of the team's once horrific front office?  Or is it simply because we all need something to talk about as this off-season has hit full on snooze mode?

Your thoughts?  You excited to see Webster return?  Disappointed?  Emotionless?

Glad to see Martell Webster healthy. He's going to be critical for the Blazers this season, being able to shoot threes, spread the defense out, and providing above-average defense. Definitely an upgrade to Batum.

Martell has worked very hard to recover from his injury and resume his NBA career. I'm looking forward to seeing him back.

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.
