Andre Miller or Steve Blake?
When Andre Miller was signed during the offseason many believed that he held the key to Portland's success. One of the major reasons being so was due to his 10 long years of experience in the league, something the Blazers were truly in serious lack of.
After being "initially" told that he would begin the season at the starting one spot, Miller kicked off the NBA season alongside of rookies Jeff Pendergraph and Dante Cunningham, on the bench.
Teammate Brandon Roy publicly spoke out to state that he prefers Steve Blake at the point rather than Miller, but that could all change in the matter of weeks.
What it will all come down to is whether or not the Blazers want to admit defeat and deal away Miller after having him on the roster for only 27 games, and of course if any team will want to take on his three-year, $21 million contract.
Nate Robinson In The Doghouse?
The Nate Robinson Mike D'Antoni feud has gone downhill so quickly that D'Antoni publicly came out and said that he'd play Satan over Robinson if he could win.
Tiny Nate has been benched for a total of 13 games on the season, competing in just 12 games (last contest on Dec. 1), while averaging only 22 MPG.
Kryptonate signed a one-year $4 million contract with the Knicks during the offseason and becomes eligible to be dealt on December 22.
It's clear that D'Antoni is disgusted by Robinson's overall behavior and apparently if the Knicks could deal him away with Curry and/or Jeffries for an expiring contract, the little fella could be well on his way to a new city (if Robinson agrees to the deal).
Ramon Sessions Stuck In Minnesota For How Much Longer?
Sessions enjoyed a career-high sophomore season last year, posting 12.4 PPG, 5.7 APG, 3.4 RPG, and 1.0 SPG on 44.5 percent shooting from the field in 27.5 MPG.
After signing a four-year, $16.4 million deal with the Wolves Sessions seems to have completely disappeared with the rest of the organization into thin air.
Off to a 4-22 start (last in the West), the Timberwolves have used rookie Jonny Flynn at the starting point-guard position as opposed to Sessions, averaging just under 30 MPG.
On such a disappointing team with not many minutes being thrown his way, it will only be a matter of time before Sessions name heats up in trade talk.
