Born in '52. Grew up in the Bay Area rooting for the Warriors but admiring Walton & Lucas. Gradually became a Blazer fan after moving to Portland in '86. I chose the "hurryup09" handle in '08, thinking that LMA, Roy, and Greg Oden would lead the Blazers to contention by the '09-'10 season. Sigh...

A Fan Of...

  • NBA Portland Trail Blazers

I hate to put it so bluntly, but you're simply wrong there.

Oh it can get worse: much worse

Of course they've been told not to criticize the officiating

We've seen it before: most notably in the infamous Lakers-Kings series back in the day.

Exactly. It was a classic NBA "make up call" (something the NBA swears up and down never happens)

Regardless, I'm pretty sure that the Game 2 crew views Game 1 as part of their preparation

I also thought that Batum's block was probably not a goaltend

Commented on Portland Trail Blazers vs. Houston Rockets Game 1: Aldridge, Howard, Refs Center Stage in Portland Victory on Apr 21 2014, 5:29p
Rec'd. But I think it's reasonable to appreciate the high drama of that game and the great individual performances of Lillard (down the stretch), LMA, Howard, and Parsons while noting that it was very poorly officiated
Commented on Portland Trail Blazers vs. Houston Rockets Game 1: Aldridge, Howard, Refs Center Stage in Portland Victory on Apr 21 2014, 5:19p
Yeah, that was outright absurd
Commented on Portland Trail Blazers vs. Houston Rockets Game 1: Aldridge, Howard, Refs Center Stage in Portland Victory on Apr 21 2014, 5:13p
Oh, no question: particularly after Howard had just gone around and through Joel to grab the rebound off a missed Rockets free throw

I have a theory about the Howard "foul" that ended his night: namely that it was an old-fashioned "make up call"

Lillard and Batum had nerves early. So Coach Stotts was brilliant in going to Mathews in the post at that point in the game, then to LMA

I like the fact that the Game 2 referees will presumably watch the footage of Game 1 as part of their preparation

Funny how Shaq didn't speak so highly of Dwight Howard when Shaq was still playing. Even in early in his retirement, he ridiculed Howard on a regular basis. When did these guys develop their bromance?

It's not that Freeland is a great player

Let alone: I think the Blazers chances on winning a playoff series go from good to virtually nil if Freeland CAN'T play

I met Cunningham a few years ago and got to chat with him for several minutes, pose for a photo, etc. He struck me as an exceptionally nice guy, and very bright too

Yes, earlier in the season Wright appeared a one-trick pony--a 3-point specialist--whereas Claver clearly has everything BUT an outside shot

I appreciate and share the sentiment. But hard fouls won't discourage Harden, and they'll serve to put individual Blazers in foul trouble and the team in the penalty

It isn't just the Rockets' flopping that bothers me. It's the extra two steps that James Harden is granted by the officials

You're missing the all-important international market factor--in this case, Chinese-American Jeremy Lin

Agreed--and you didn't even mention that the stretch of the schedule in which the team struggled was one that had been a source of concern since the beginning of the season

Usually I agree with you, Mort. But I've gotta say it, cruel or not: Javele does a LOT of boneheaded stuff
