"Yesterday we celebrated Sir Isaac Newton's discovery of gravity. Today, Fabricio Oberto is defying it."

Bill Walton, from Free Darko's Undisputed Guide to Pro Basketball History.

A Recommendation on the GM Search: Go For Cho

3

The Blazers are going about this GM search the wrong way, targeting guys with long histories of crashes and burns. We should be targeting someone who's fresh, smart, and eager. That man is Rich Cho.

Magic Numbers!

1

Hey, our magic number to be in the playoffs is down to only five. So, any combo of five Blazer wins or Grizzly losses, we're in. Magic numbers have an odd charm to me.

Aren't we going a little crazy over this GM situation? Simmons thinks so

60

Found in the Spurs-Thunder description: "Note: I'd give you a top 12, but then we'd have to discuss Greg Oden … and Rip City is already on edge enough thanks to the firing of assistant GM Tom Penn and the subsequent "Kevin Pritchard might be next" rumors. Which is really what separates Portland from any other basketball city: NOBODY ELSE would care this much about an assistant GM getting fired unless he got canned because he was plowing into his assistant on a Xerox machine or something. In Portland, this saga is being analyzed like President Obama's health care package. There is no other NBA city like it. And I mean that as a compliment." Bill nailed it.

Greg Oden and the PR Move of the Decade

"Now, here comes the question: how does a player, basically known only for terrible injuries and an easygoing attitude, change the public perception of himself around?"

I was at the game last night about six rows back and I wrote a little recap about it.

It was my first day at a players Media Day, and I got to speak with Oden, Webster, and Batum, and even was ambushed by Mike Rice.

Portland Monthly Gives Month-By-Month Emotional Preview Based on New Schedule

1

December: Disengagement. The Blazers hit a massive wall during a road trip against the Spurs, Magic, and Mavericks. The first slump of the season leads to a flaming bag of poop left on the doorstep of Paul Allen. Allen’s cyborg ninja security team makes sure this doesn’t happen again.

"What the Blazers are going through right now is very similar to what a movie production company goes through when casting an actor for a new film. It wants to make sure that he has a good history, makes successful movies, and can put asses in the seats. This is when they sign Will Smith. The Blazers just decided to sign Keanu Reeves."

A Humble Backup Power Forward Suggestion

We all know the weaknesses of the team at the backup power forward spot.  We can't get any offense out of it.  We can't get any defense out of it.  We can't get any rebounding.  It's just abysmal. ...

In this post, Trail Post breaks down the Gladwell New Yorker article and how it could possible relate to the Blazers going forward and looking back.

Who Do We Root For?

What team should Blazer fans be rooting for now that the Blazers are out. I came to the conclusion that it should be the Hawks or the Mavs. What are your picks?

Violet Palmer is bad at her job, but she really does her best to call it horribly both ways. Still, Steve Blake got called for some ridiculous fouls. I imagine that Violet Palmer follows Deron Williams around at about 25 paces behind him with her whistle in her mouth at the ready. Any time he gets brushed, she calls the foul.

"Still, Canzano was beaten and beaten badly, so he resorted to his last defense - he tattled to Twitter. Soon enough, DRC was knocked off for copyright infringement. Who knew that writing like a hack was infringement? (Does that mean I owe Canzano royalties?)"

Let's just be happy that we don't have to support players like this.
