The jailblazers have a better record than the W's and Randolph and Boozer are leading their teams!!!
Ike will never turnout to be like Randolph or Boozer maybe Ike is actually closer to 6"7 than his listed 6"8.

Why are you comparing what those veteran players are doing now to the sophmore Ike
Only time will tell what Ike will become and you have already let it be known that you don't like Ike so why continue to start new threads about the same topic
You are the only person who doesn't believe in Ike

... and this has what to do with trades, exactly?

Trade Ike for either Randolph or Boozer!!!

Neither work, cap-wise.
And Ike's a better long term option. Boozer can't walk through the supermarket without breaking something... and Randolph puts the "Jail" in "Jail-Blazers".
Ike Diogu is a better, more consistent option than either.

Randolph and Boozer are certainly doing real well but they have attitude and/or injury problems so their success will likely not continue for much longer

And how do you know that? Are you just basing it on his past (Randolph?)
Randolph lost the weight over the summer like BD and how many min is BD playing and how many games has he had to sit out of?.
That's reason why you guys can't look for value in other players because of why everybody else has to say about these guys. Management from both teams Jazz and Blazers have stood by these players and rt now they are playing unbelievable!!!
Even before the season I was high on both of these players!!! Easily could have had a Randolph for Murph and somebody else. Or the Boozer for Murphy trade that was rumored for last yr!!!

But attitudes don't go away and Randolph, for example, is one that has had NUMEROUS bad attitude problems and incidents in the past. It is just too risky to get him. Boozer is looking great but he doesn't have the post skills that Diogu has. Boozer gets it done with putbacks and stuff like that. Boozer would be used as much as Diogu is right now if he were here because he is as much a fit for Nelson's system as Diogu is

Don't be so biased migya!!! You're giving too much credit for Diogu!!! Where credit isn't due!!! He has proven his defense is just as bad!!! Ike is a foul machine and he his rebounding is not where it should be!!!
Ron Artest is just as bad!!! Look how well he's behaving over there in Sac where he is not even the main man!!!
You put too much promise on potential players where he hasn't even proven he can stay on the floor for that matter. Bad defense and average rebounding for a guy of his statue!!! A couple of good games last yr got alot of people fooled and it is covering other areas of his game where is is weak!!! Ike won't live up to his potential even when he gets the PT this yr!!!

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't the W's need a postup players who can get the loose rebounds and get the easy putbacks with all those jumpers that the W's guards shoot???
A player doesn't average 22 pts a season just on putbacks alone!!! And aren't the W's being outrebounded by their opponents especially those games against NOK??? And with the Jazz front line he's one of their best players and is diminishing Andrei role as an offensive threat!!!
Give me that guys numbers staight up for Murph game. He rebounds the ball just as well and doesn't rely on shooting the long ball or jumper!!!

I would consider this trade but Boozer is injury prone. If he wasn't, I'd do this trade. Plus two, Biedrins is panning out to be our post guy who gets loose rebounds, blocks, putbacks, and finishes.

I wouldn't be totally opposed to get Boozer... but not Randolph. That guy is going to destroy the Blazers. If not this season, the next one... I'm sure it will happen, just don't know when.
btw, both the Jazz and Blazers were trying to trade those players this summer. In fact, Boston backed down from getting Boozer because Utah wanted Al Jefferson and Gerald Green... That doesn't say much about the confidence they have in them.

The last couple of games that he did play in he rebounded and got some blocks well. He has the ability but just hasn't had the chance to show it enough yet.
Boozer costs too much anyway and if he would get injured again, so much money would be wasted! At least with Diogu he doesn't get alot of money and will have to earn it
