08:11 AM ET 07.24 | Considering height -- 7-foot-1 in this case -- is awfully hard to teach, there will always be some interest in someone with Joel Przybilla's size. According to his agent, Bill Duffy, the Portland Trail Blazers, Dallas Mavericks, and the Milwaukee Bucks are the three teams that have shown the highest level of interest in signing the free agent center. Przybilla will meet with Bucks management this week, according to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times. With Joel Freeland and Meyers Leonard on the Trail Blazers roster, Przybilla would be used solely as a big-man mentor if he decides to sign back with the organization. ... [Przybilla] signed with the Trail Blazers last March after turning down offers to play for the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat. He said the reason he chose Portland was because his family felt comfortable there.

This guy ... are (sic) not into winning.

Why would you say that? I cannot imagine any athlete, for all the time and effort they put into their craft, not wanting to win.

How do you know he's "done"?

Is he slower these days?

Is he losing his jumping ability?

Or is he "done" because he's been in the oven long enough



















j/k (LOL)

His name sounds like a breed of some unleashed dinosaur!This guy like Camby, Nene & Dalembert are not into winning.So I hope he lands with a terrible team.Just think he could have had a ring with Miami, but chose that wreck in Portland instead.

You have never been to Portland! As I inHale!!!

In other news anybody know where Blatche will end up?My mind says Spurs,bobcats,rockets or sixers.OKC should even try for his services.

It'd be a massive surprise if teams that cherish good chemistry/their system (like SA/OKC) would bring in a player like Blatche

*Flips quarter to BOC and blows into harmonica to get in tune*

He's got no discernible skills at all,
Lucky for him he's seven feet taaaaaaallllll.

He puts up a shot and he sees it slapped down,
Gets beat up by every other center in tooooowwwwwnnnn.

Oh no, they say he's got to go
Go, go Pryzbilla!
Oh, yeaaaahhh!
Oh no, his player rating's 0.0
Go, go Pryzbilla!
