While most saw Nurkic join the wrong side of a poster, the Blazers saw their starting center join the right side of a winner. While many cringed as Nurkic took the brunt of the dunk, the Blazers gained reverence. “We talk about it all the time,” Ed Davis said. “You’ve got guys who are known dunkers. And the question is: When they come in the lane, what are you going to do? I respect Nurk for going after the block. A lot of guys are scared and get out of the way.”
Both Ed Davis and Shabazz Napier said they have either seen or heard Turner struggle about the burden of his contract. “A lot of players get judged on their salary,’’ Davis said. “If he was making, let’s say 8 million a year, they would be like, ‘He’s the best player in the league’ … that’s just how life is. But I always tell him: That’s a good problem to have. I’d rather have someone talk (stuff) to me if I was making 17 million a year than 6 million a year. So that’s a good problem.’’
But after seven-plus NBA seasons for four different teams, Ed Davis knows what he thinks about an organization, and his desire to stay in a city doesn’t mean much when it comes to the NBA’s trading deadline. The NBA is a business and sometimes, business can be cold. “I talked about it with my lady last night,’’ Davis said. “There’s a good chance that something could happen. We have to be prepared for it.’’
