Remeber how Trevor had a great rookie outing for us, he was labled untouchable, struggled his 2nd season (as most rookies do) and eventually was a peice to the Steve Fracis trade, and would emerge as the best of the 3 players traded in the deal giving another ray of hope in Orlando's future. Well word has it that Channing Frye is having a great off season for the Blazers. While there may not be any weight to this rumor, but there is some talk that Aldridge may not be a lock at the 4 for Portland. Can these reports be misleading, yes I remember one summer when our coaches were claiming that Micheal Sweetney was the second coming of Barkely, so reports from teams staff could just them merely trying to install some confidence in their player by praising him publicly. But it's also worth noting that Frye (like Lee) is working out with Team USA starting next week, and how we expect it to improve Lee's game it should do the same for Frye. Look I like Channing and I hope he does have sucess in Portland, like I hope Ariza has success in Orlando, but what I don't want to happen is that Zach has the same sucess as Francis did in NY. The trade for Francis and the trade for Zach already have a few similarities(Francis & Marbury = Zach & Eddy?), but lets just hope that the results are different, but they'll be no question this time as to who initated this trade this time we'll know that the coach and GM agreed on this deal!
