    I’m okay with anyone calling him J Ho, just stop that with Josh Howard. J-5′s not a great nickname but it ain’t no J-Ho.
    Juwan just took away a job from Ostertag, Oliver Miller, Shawn Kemp, JR Rider, Bonzi, other offseason comeback hopeful players this year.
    His pirate beard vs. Brian Skinners Orange wanna be Rockstar but more like Abe Lincoln one.

    I like Juwan Howard in this role. I always thought Jalen was going to be the most durable Fab Five member.

    Man this dude is like 38 or something. He’ll be like Eric Snow for the Cavaliers.
    And he was average in Houston age 35 so… can’t really expact him to be doing much.

    Contributions in the locker room sounds nasty to me, but ok.

    Are the Blazers ready for championship contention yet? No.

    He played well for the Bobcats last year.. If the Blazers can stay injury-free to their bigs, he wont be asked to do much. Blazers now have 2 quality players at every position..

    Juwan took away a job from JR Rider and Bonzi Wells? As two of the poster boys of the Jail Blazers era, they never would have been considered for that job.

    That’s a given, sure, but you don’t ever want to leave anyone out of the “retired or long been a free agent, out of the league former player this offseason who wants to come back, provide experience these young guys are lacking, maybe give a good 15-20 minutes a night.”
