More assets in which way? I am not trying to be rude just actually wondering your opinion on that

Pryzbilla has a player option after this year... he will use it. around 9+ mill off the books.
Outlaw is underpaid
Plus young assests that can easily be moved.

He said assets that are movable. Neither the Lakers or Spurs can really say that.
Bayless, Batum are 2 of the better prospect around the league teams want.

and most the players dont have long term contracts, or expensive contracts making teams out of the playoff race willing to take on these players.

Ill call it. Denver/Portland will finish 2/3rd. SAS will be 4th. 24 road games to 11 home games at the end of the year. They cant coast this year, and they will be injured by this time. Puts a lot of pressure on them early.

...I think its a good chance by Jan 1st Portland has the best record in the west, they have a cake 1st half.

Blazers have 17 home games, but also 17 roadies, including a 5 game trip and two 4 gamers before January.

LA, on the other hand, has 20 home games against just 11 roadies, with just one 5 game trip before January. It would shock me if Portland had better record by then..

However, if they can stay close, Portland could have a better record after January, which sees the Lakers play 6 in LA as opposed to 12 on the road, including games @Portland, @San Antonio and a ridiculous 8 game eastern road trip with stops in Cleveland and Boston..

only tough road trip for Portland is that 4 gamer I mentioned. The rest they should win the trip.

break down of Portlands schedule from last year opponent records
Oct .650 (3)
Nov .431 (16)
Dec .526 (15)
Jan .534 (15)
Feb .499 (13)
Mar .402 (13)
Apr .447 (7)

Hardest 2 months of the year Dec Jan... you have almost a month of home games.
