Ih8LA, welcome to TLN.
Mbenga > Pryz? :lol: Joel Przybilla is the best back up center in the league and he did a good job when Oden was injured.
Powell is an energy player... he's only going to be playing 5 minutes per game. He's not going to make a big impact on the team.
Ariza > Webster? :lol: Ariza is overrated by Laker fans like you. Ariza can't stay healthy and Webster is a better player. Webster would be starting for a couple of teams in the NBA if he wasn't playing for Portland. How many teams would Ariza start for if he wasn't on the Lakers?
Sasha > Rudy? :lol: Rudy is a better player than Sasha. Sasha only had a couple of good months and chocked in the playoffs. Rudy played great overseas and played great in the Olympics.
Portland has a better bench and Portland will be contending for a championship soon. (Maybe in 2 years)
only 2 issues with your post
webster has done about nothing in this league he is a bust and ariza actually has a reputation as a very good defensive player who can create off the bounce while webster has no reputation
i don't know where your basis is that he would start because the only team hes starting on is the clippers. for god sakes hes not even the best small foward on his team
and the other one saying rudy fernandez is better than sasha at this point is ignorant if you've watched sasha play in europe he looked just as good if not better than rudy.
this is the NBA and last time i checked sasha was considered a top flight bench player while rudy has not played a second in the NBA
also you guys pumping up portland are basing their success off of a lot of unknowns greg oden, jarred bayless, rudy fernandez have all play 0 minutes in the NBA
also greg oden is a bust waiting to happen he is lazy, not 100% into basketball hell i remember a quote of him saying he didn't like basketball that much and only played it because he was good at it
