Wesley Matthews can’t miss

By Lang Whitaker, NBA.com

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — I once heard a story about a coach who told his team to go get some shots up from the place on the court they expected to be shooting from during a game. And one guy ran over and took a seat on the bench and began firing up shots.

Blazers guard Wesley Matthews is in no danger of that happening to him, but just to be safe he got up a shot from the bench during last night’s pregame warm-ups…and he drilled it. (By the way, Matthews absolutely had the proper reaction here: When you make an amazing shot, just run right off the court, because it’s basically impossible to top it.)

    Shooting from the bench will not gives you any ring you need to be a bench player with the king “LeBron”. We will trade some future bench player Mason JR and Douglas plus future first round picks!

    I think a trade that should happen is wesley matthews for JR smith. A new start for JR is portland and wesleys shootin skills with melo and phil jackson. Thts just my opinion
