    He didn't get cut by PA and management and so they see something in him. At least with Luke, he makes his shots so far, unlike Chris Johnson who just commits fouls, and block shots. Luke does look better this season than last. He has learned some cordinated hustle.

    I wonder if Babbit actually comes out with some hustle! I actually think he's better than we used to joke about. The White Flag, could turn into a J J Reddick type asset to a team? Maybe I'm reaching here. LOL

    If Babbitt could stop playing with that "deer in the headlights", "I'm not sure I belong here" look on his face then maybe ... but I just don't think he's got enough lateral mobility to cover 3s or enough size to cover 4s. At best he might become a Steve Novak type, but he sure as hell hasn't displayed much catch and shoot ability; he seems to be at his personal best when he's handling the ball (god help us).

    Babbit is now averaging 12 rebounds per 36 minutes, and he's lighting it up from 3pt range at a rate of 57%. He's the 2nd coming of Mike Miller!

    I think he has skills. He is not one dimensional on offense. He really needed a summer league and a fall camp. Right now he is thinking too much out there. But fundamentally he is sound. Love his quick outlet passes. He has a nice step back shot off the dribble.

    We will see what happens once everyone has seem him a few times, but I am not ready to get rid of him yet. We always need shooters. Yes his lateral quickness could be a problem with other SF's. But he is not a stiff.

    Just cut the fucking hair.

    I like Babs.

    Seriously.

    Never realized how tenacious he is at boards and does an adequate job on defense. Needs to learn when to shoot. Just like Nolan, he does a lot better when he doesn't have to think, instead of just doing. Letting the game come to him. When he's hitting, its a thing of beauty. He could be what everybody wished Luke Jackson could be, minus the freak atheleticsm Jackson had.

    I think there's lots of Blazer fans think he will always be the 15th man on the roster but he has been doing the following.

    1. He's getting better on the NBA feel and intensity.
    2. His 3 pt ability seems to be consistent in his time allowed. Based upon his stats his 3 pt percentage hasn't dropped below 33%.
    3. Getting better on passing the ball to teammates.

    Disadvantages:
    1. Defense, he does cover his man most of the time but tries to put his hands in his defenders face to try to block the shot.
    2. Can he set plays where he's open for a shot?
    3. He needs to improve his comfort level in the paint area, looks like hes timid most of the time?

    Bottom line: Is he worthy of a 13-15 roster spot? Yes, only if he gets at least 8 min per game because he can hit the 3 point attempt.

    Luke played great tonight. In addition to hitting two threes, he was very active on D and on the glass. I'm enjoying watching him play. Go Luke! Glad you're finally getting your chance.

    Cavs GM hints he will sign either Uzoh or Armon Johnson to a 10-day.

    One candidate is Ben Uzoh, who appeared in two games for the Cavs earlier this season. Another is Armon Johnson, waived by Portland on Feb. 27. Johnson was the 34th pick in the 2010 draft. “We’re going to have to fill that position,” Grant said.

    Aldridge used to say "Uh, definitely." He changed the culture of the organization when he switched to “You know.”

    Hinrich is going to get the BAE and we have that so why would we give up McCollum

    And Chris Johnson was better? I constantly saw Chris draw fouls. Did Chris ever get more than 4 points in any game with Portland? At least Luke can hit 3's unlike Crawford or Felton lately. Crawford is like Wallace, hits his game in spurts sometimes crappy and other times decent. As long as Luke gets 10 minutes in a game he has value with a PER thats still 11.

    Plus, he's still cheap to have on the roster that is attempting to clean house.

    The Babbitt man delivered in limited playing time tonight against the Thunder. At least he can hit the three consistent even against the thunder (total 6 points).
    (against the kings)

    Spin: Babbitt also pulled down five rebounds and tacked on one steal in 17 minutes off the bench for the Blazers. Over the past four games, he's played a supporting role in three of them, accumulating 25 points (8-19 FG, 4-4 FT), 14 boards, five treys, and one steal in 36 minutes total. With Portland's season quickly slipping away, don't be surprised if deep reserves like Babbitt earn more run, thereby enhancing their fantasy value. Currently, though, only owners in the deepest of leagues should consider having Babbitt on their rosters.

    He's getting better every game. He's a keeper. Fantastic shooter off bench. We haven't had a guy like this since James Jones. He's money.

    I don't see that happening. If you see in the Blazers rosters past, there is always at least one white player in the roster.

    As of now Chalupa man has a PER of 14.91. Isn't 15.0 an average NBA starter? His PER rating fluctuates 'cause of his limited minutes though. The kid is gonna be alright.

    Post game interview: http://www.nba.com/blazers/video/201...120329-2050893

    “That’s huge,” Batum said of Babbitt’s performance. “We know he’s a great shooter, so if he can come in on the court, he can spread the court for us. What he did tonight was great.”

    "The Trail Blazers did some damage themselves from behind the arc, led by Luke Babbitt, who leads all second-year players in the NBA now at just a hair below 50 percent on the season. Babbitt gave Portland a huge boost off the bench, scoring 16 points in just 17 minutes of action. Opportunity is something he’s been given now, and he’s certainly making the most of it."

    "Luke's been working his tail off in practice," interim coach Kaleb Canales said. "I'm happy for him. He's getting the opportunity to play, but we've always believed in Luke."

    "The guy is hot, we're going to find him," Felton said. "Luke is a great shooter. He's been doing that all year in practice, since Day One. he's getting his opportunity and taking advantage of it. As a point guard, I love to see Luke over there in that corner or popping when I'm coming off the screen and roll because he can shoot the ball. I'm going to look for him because he knocks it down."
    "I don’t like to speak badly of people. I have grown up thinking and being told that if you cannot say something nice about someone, you should not say anything at all. But I must break that rule in this case because I hate Hulk Hogan very much. He is a big ugly goon and I want to smash his face."
