  • Introduction to Video Content
  • The Portland Trail Blazers, led by star player Damian Lillard, are facing a critical juncture in their season. With the trade deadline just days away, the team finds itself in a precarious position in the Western Conference standings. Currently, they are just one game out of the play-in tournament, but their performance has been far from impressive. Lillard, who is averaging an impressive 34.5 points per game on 50% shooting, has been carrying the team with multiple 40-point games this month alone. However, despite his individual brilliance, it is evident that the Blazers are not up to par. The team lacks a clear identity and a cohesive playing style. While they have had some success in the past with Lillard and CJ McCollum as their dynamic backcourt duo, it may be time for the organization to reconsider their strategy. Lillard is 32 years old and entering the latter years of his prime, and it is imperative that the Blazers capitalize on his talent and give him a roster that can compete for a championship. The clock is ticking, and the Blazers must decide whether to make a move before the trade deadline to improve their chances or continue down the path of mediocrity.
  • Subtitles section
  • The eighth 40 point game this season that's fourth most in the NBA.
  • I mean look at Dame's numbers averaging nearly thirty four point five points per game on 50 percent shooting now has two more 40 point games this month than he had all season before January which is just absolutely insane.
  • And we're just nine days away Zach from the trade deadline.
  • But but who's counting right.
  • The Blazers are currently a game out of the West play in the Hawks or eighth in the east.
  • So if you're looking at these two teams which one needs to make a move more.
  • Yeah both of them are just kind of treading water in that dreaded mediocrity zone.
  • Look I'll say the Blazers the Hawks already made their big trade in the offseason trading a whole bunch of picks for Dejohn Demer.
  • He's been solid for them.
  • Yeah.
  • John Collins could still be had maybe a couple other guys.
  • We'll see.
  • The more I watch Portland this season the more I just am not sure what they're doing.
  • What is their identity.
  • What is their founding principle.
  • What kind of style do they want to play.
  • They're trying to thread this needle of Damian Lillard's 32 years old.
  • We want to maximize what he has left in his prime.
  • He deserves it.
  • He wants it.
  • He's on a huge Max extension that goes for a long time.
  • But the team around him look the record is what it is.
  • They're not good enough.
  • And when I watch them play I see Damian Lillard at thirty two and Freddie Simons at twenty three.
  • And I just kind of feel like I've seen this movie before with two small guards trying to build a defense and not ultimately getting where you want to go.
  • Although I think the Blazers had an underrated amount of success with Dame and CJ McCollum.
  • And I just wonder how long can they try to thread this needle.
  • How long can they just sort of stay in the middle around five hundred before something has to give.
  • And that nine year age gap between the two guards just stands out to me.
  • I don't know what they do.
  • They're barely under the tax so they can't do all that much.
  • But it just feels like something's got to shake there.
  • Well the NBA trade deadline we have a five hour trade deadline special next Thursday the ninth at 1 p.m.
  • Eastern.
  • We will have you totally covered on any moves that the Blazers or others may make.
