With Dame and CJ chucker three's and Nurkic/Kanter cleaning up they should be fine...Yes they have defensive limitations BUT they can also pound the ball downlow for 48 minutes if they really wanted to

Right. I don't know why

Right.

I don't know why people are so down on the addition. If a double double player comes into a team without reliable big men, clearly someone is pushed out of the rotation. It will be Meyers or Zach, and Skal wasn't joining the rotation this season anyway. Problem solved.

Portland is the third best rebounding team and having Kanter added to our bench will likely help. Our defense/floor spacing may suffer while he's on the floor, but our bench scoring schemes will improve with Rodney Hood, Jake Layman, and Enes Kanter bolstering it.

We lost Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin and replaced their presence with Kanter and Hood. Portland got better, even if one can't make sense of how Stotts will divvy minutes upon first glance.

Is McCollum a chucker? He

Is McCollum a chucker? He hits 40% from his 3 throughout his career. He also has a better career FG% and 3PT% than Lillard.

Not sure I'd call him a "chucker." CJ's numbers are definitely down from last season, and he hasn't been as effiicient in a number of places, namely his 3FG%.

His inability to shoot more free throws puts a ceiling on his outlook. That, his defensive aches, and overall playmaking for others. Your comment about his %s being better than Lillard mean nothing. Lillard is clearly the superior player between the two and it's not even close.

Hope when you mentioned

Hope when you mentioned "defensive limitations" you were excluding Nurkic. He's one of the better C defenders in the league.
