RICH CHO FIRED

My brother just had lunch with Dwight Jaynes. As they left, DJ got an e-mail saying that Rich Cho has been fired and Chad Buchanan is the acting GM. Wow.

Bill Simmons roasts Sheed

Really good column by BS chronicling the player that Sheed is and the player that Sheed could have been. Portland fans everywhere rejoice that this guy is no longer our centerpiece.

If you didn't already hate the Lakers with all your heart and soul...

Ugh, ugh, ugh. What a smarmy, sanctimonious, pompous column. My favorite part is "He's a championship-assuring difference right now" followed closely by "The Lakers' biggest Western rivals play in Denver." Like in all empires, hubris precedes collapse...and I hear that there are some REAL hungry Visigoths in Portland these days.

Simmons... ::sigh::

The guy just can't stop chugging that Blazer haterade. A couple of excerpts: "We knew Miller was a bad fit when the Blazers signed him. It just didn't feel right. He's a moody loner; they had great chemistry last year. He needs the ball in his hands; so does Brandon Roy. He likes free-lancing; Nate McMillan is hands-on. But Portland felt obligated to spend their extra cap money, and nobody else was pursuing Miller, so what transpired was the equivalent of two single wedding guests going through the motions on the dance floor." -------------------------------------------------------------------------- "The "You Thought We'd Take Another Leap, But Instead We Went Backwards Because Expectations Were Too High, We Tinkered With Our Chemistry & Our Young Guys Tuned Out Their Coach" Team. (Ladies and gentlemen, your 2009-10 Portland Trail Blazers!)"

Does Andre Miller Actually Improve His Bigs?

Conventional wisdom and Wendell Maxey would have us believe that Andre Miller is the bee's knees when it comes to making life easier on his big men on the offensive end.  There's no doubt that...

Von Wafer to miss Game 6

Portland sports-talk radio just reported that (Baron) Von Wafer is battling back problems and will not play tonight. I say huzzah! That guy has been a royal pain in the posterior off the bench for Houston. Anything that saps the scoring punch of their second unit and makes guys like Brooks and Artest think they have to score more to make up the difference is fine by me.

NBA.com poll shows...

With more than 52,000 votes, the Blazers are America's darlings -- 35% of all respondents pick Portland as the dark horse most likely to make some noise in the playoffs. I fully expect us to double this number in the next thirty-seven minutes. :)

shaq's not a jerk

just goes to show that human beings are complicated animals. for all of his obnoxious preening on and off the court, way too many stories come out about the big cactus just like this one for me to really despise the guy. stuff like this is way more important in the grand scheme of things than him falling on joel's face.

An interesting parallel and lessons to be learned

An afterthought to begin the 2007-08 NBA season, the Blazers drew national attention when they streaked into 2008 riding a 13-game winning streak. By early February, Portland sat comfortably at...
