    I’m not sure where the thin line is between rebuilding or tanking or if there is one.

    So…Houston now has two offensively challenged centers and the Blazers have Thabeet as their starting big man? I guess there’s still hope for Flynn? Idk, I didn’t see this one coming…

  • BostonBaller

    Camby – UMass – he has been in the L for about 40 yrs and can still give a team solid play. My man.
