OK, the Blazers are now pretty well set for the remainder of Paul's run...

- a young, business only president,
- Neil Olshey as the basketball knowledgeable GM
- Terry Stotts as the head coach
- With a solid staff of assistants

On the player side, they have their starting lineup core locked down for three years: Lillard, Wes, Batum, LMA, and Leonard are all under contract for at least 3 more years! Go Blazers!

Congrats to Coach Stotts! He's a 50/50 Coach! (When Will He Be a > .500 Coach?)

Years ago I helped divide Bedge by (innocently) asking "When will Nate be a .500 Coach"... Well, I must admit, this year's Blazers snuck up on me... so much so that I never got a chance to post...

REALLY Long Range Planning

I believe that the Heat and OKC will dominate the finals until 2016. LA and Wes' last year is 2015. 2017 is wide open. If Paul has given the team a 5-year window, how might that affect this...

Negative guys are Blazers Fans Too!

  I continue to see posts in which those who criticize any aspect of the team are castigated, and deemed to be less of a fan, than those fans who praise the team.  In fact, some go so far as to...

He-e-y-y!! Quit Whining, and Finish!

I love our Blazers, but last night, I don’t know if the TNT mikes are better than Blazer Broadcasting, or what, but I could not believe how many times, in the first quarter alone, I heard a Blazer...

Almost forgot!

Before the Cavs game, I stumbled across Canzano. I actually liked one bit he did blaming KP for the Dre Affair, told him so, and he said, "yeah thanks, you know KP just came by and said - so you're blaming me, huh?"
