I'll give you one more example.
Few years back, Portland had Sheed and Jermaine O'neal ... and had to decide which to keep and which to trade ... if you think that Indiana wouldn't have taken Sheed for Dale Davis, uhm ... yeah.
But Portland just couldn't part with it's "Starting" power forward ... the one with so much more "Talent" than O'neal ...
Except ... oops ... within two years, Jermaine's now better than Sheed ... Hmm, go figure.
Now if Portland would have pulled their collective heads out of their hindquarters ... they would have seen that Rasheed's attitude was taking him downhill fast ... and maybe, they would have seen past all that "Talent" and figured out what a real quality player is like.
4) Rasheed Wallace= UNDERRATED
Portland had no idea that Jermaine would be better than Rasheed here is the prof
If you read he never averaged more than 4.5 a game, he was shinny as hell, they had no clue he'd be a All-Star, and at 6'11 210lbs, he was not a capable of playing back up center against SHAQ
so they got someone who could Dale Davis, they sacrificed the future for the present in 01 for a chance at a ring (and failed)
they traded 4.1ppg and 3.3 reb for 10.0 ppg and 9.9 reb and oh 252lbs for 210 lbs (Jermaine now weighs 242 lbs)
Rasheed neveer entered into the conversation and he has actually been very consistant over the last 4 years

2) KEVIN GARRNET = MINN
3) KARAL MALONE = BEST PF TO PLAY THE GAME INTO NOW.
4) Rasheed Wallace= UNDERRATED
5) Kenyon Martin= THE FUTURE OF THE LEAGUE.
THIS IS MY LIST OF TOP FIVE PF IN THE GAME TODAY..
bEN WALLACE AND J.ONEAL ARE CENTER NOT PF.
CHRIS WEBBER............ OVERRATED...... CHOKES IN THE FOURTH QUARTER MOST OF HIS SCORING OCCURS DURING THE FIRST HALF AND PLAYS BAD BACK TO THE BASKET.....
FURTHERMORE, THE 3RD BEST PLAYER ON HIS TEAM.

Rasheed only BECAME untouchable after they emptied out all their other PF candidates ...
A mistake by Portland. As I've said all along.
Kobe's Therapist wrote:Blah ... Blah ... Blah ... you keep saying the same old things ... which are just your opinions ...
And if you think I'm gonna go search through 3 year old Blazer articles to find the ones dealing with the Rasheed/J. O'neal situation ... uhm, no.
So, I'll just say this ... if you think the Blazers wouldn't give their right arm ... and a couple ribs as well, to have Jermaine for Rasheed right now, you're loony.
And likewise ... if you think a player that was playing back up PF to Brian Grant the year before, suddenly jumps to "Untouchable" status the next year ... especially with his rotten attitude and the fact that they still had O'neal, you're loonier than loony.

the whole point you just made for me....is that nobody knew Jermaine would be that good....of course Portland would give thier right arm for Jermaine, but they wrent sayin that 3 years ago....
he improved...thats my point and you just made it for me thanx
