Trailblazers Should Make Move For Ray Felton

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

If I’m Cho and I’m running the show in Portland (pardon the pun), I’m working hard today to put my hands into the rumored Knicks-Nuggets trade that sends Ray Felton to Denver. Why? Because, as much as I like Andre Miller (and I’m speaking as a student of the game and as Blazer’s management), he’s old. He’s as good as he’s ever going to be. Felton?

Greg Oden ManchildMichael Olowokandi Kandi ManAround NBA draft time, circa 1998, Michael Olowokandi “The Kandi Man” was often described as a “supremely gifted athlete in a 7 footer’s body”. Fast forward nearly 10 years to NBA draft time 2007, and you hear Steve Kerr describe Greg Oden as a “once-in-a-decade player.” Today, Greg Oden is scheduled to undergo exploratory surgery. While it’s anyone’s guess what the result will be, it’s easy for some to imagine Oden’s career tumbling into the same abyss that Olowokandi fell into. (more…)
