Steve Blake Wants to Play with Greg Oden

(Boulder-CO) Dave over at www.blazersedge.com is reporting that Steve Blake has indeed signed with the Portland Trailblazers. Remember this day, Nuggets Nation, as it will almost certainly mark a pivotal point in next year's campaign barring any other trades that go through before all is said and done.
UPDATE: It's official!!! Best of luck to the Trailblazers and Steve Blake.

Good riddance Steve Blake. We needed someone else regardless.

But do you believe that the Nuggets have upgraded by obtaining Chucky Atkins?

What about Gary Payton coming to the nuggets. He may be old but the guy can still defend, he recently got a ring, is a vet who can provide leadership, and can share minutes with atkins. It may be a long shot but he could come at a cheap price for what he could be potentially worth. Thoughts?

johnnyquest,

I like the thought a lot, in principl, but I am going to have to look into the whole idea's potential reality. However, The Glove would certainly be a guy who would meet all my requirements as far as what I think would be the best for suiting the Nuggets needs.

Lol true to the game is right. Do you think Chucky Atkins is really the Answer to our problems? Dime magazine said we should start AI at point and JR at the 2, but I can't say I agree with that.....or do I? Anyway, how bout letting us know when the Nuggets summer league games will be on NBATV? I always forget to check.

thaanswer,

Do I think that Chucky is the Answer? No, but I do think that he is an upgrade, which may be all that the Nuggets needed. The answer, pardon the pun, will be how AI, Melo, Nene, and I hate to say it... Kenyon Martin all mesh during the first 15 games of the season. If they can get some good things going while building on the already strong chemistry they had last year. I think the Nuggets will be a 50 win, second round team for sure!

PS- AI at point is a bad idea. He is the starting shooting guard who needs someone to get him the rock and get out of the way.

thaanswer and everybody else:

The final summer league game against the Knicks is on at 4 pm MST which means 6 pm out east and 3 on the left coast!

Watch it!
