This trade is about Gerald Wallace. One year removed from being an All-Star and on the all NBA defensive first team with the likes of Lebron James and Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant . He is averaging just under 16 points a game and 8 rebounds a game.....but the numbers don't tell the story people. This guys nickname is Crash!!!! He is very tough and an above the rim ( just wait for the alley-oops) menace. In coach Nate McMillans defense, he is going to drive the Kevin Durants and Lamar Odoms of the world crazy..... hey Blazer fans he is kinda a cross between Jerome Kersey and Buck Williams (kinda Old school tough). He can score and rebound but he can defend and disrupt. So sit back and welcome a key piece to this team moving out of the first round...this season....and challenge for the western conference.......
Plus you can recycle your old Rasheed Wallace jersey....bonus!
Just for fun....here are a few Blazer season predictions
Blazers 5th in western Conference ( 49-33)
Match up with Lakers in first round....Blazers win in 6
Blazers face San Antonio ( a team they match up well with) in second round.....win in 7
Blazers face Dallas in conference finals and lose in 6 (although I really hope Im wrong on this one)
Thats it....call me a homer....or maybe a NBA whisperer....either way time will tell.....wont it
Welcome to Gerald Wallace...a great trade....
Oh ya one more prediction.....Lamarcus Aldridge makes the all-star team the next five years in a row! Go Blazers!
