    That might have been the worst half of basketball I have ever witnessed.

    I'm not phased. It's a good place to be in. Nothing to worry about. :)

    Barring a miracle comeback, I think you can move me over into the fire Chauncey crowd.

    This team is getting worse, not better. The offense looks like something Nate McMillan would throw out there, and the defense isn't making up for it in any way. There's no identity, at all.

    I'm not sure there's a coach out there that could make this better, but Billups seems pretty far out of his depth.

    I'm also really exploring potential trades for Nurk. I don't know if we can find any that we'll get anything worth making the deal, but he's gotten too comfortable in Portland to where he's stagnated. He's like the Blazers in microcosm: You don't know what you're going to see from night to night. Well. except for fouls and generous helpings of Eubanks.

    The only positive is that Michael Holton seems to have gotten comfortable as the analyst. He's letting his personality show a lot more; I didn't realize it was even him for a while.

    Hart has now rejected 2 open three's and an open fastbreak layup in the first 2:30 of the 3rd quarter.

    You said they'd make a run!

    Got a bedroom for rent? I may need it.

    It's maddening, especially after he made that first 3. Then it's back to "pass up the open 3, ball fake, drive and do nothing."

    He reminds me of the point guard I coached who was really caught up in getting everyone involved in the offense and forgot he was part of "everyone."

    Hart's Eagle Scout leader appeared to be smoking the good stuff.

    Exactly... Not being a threat to shoot can be one of the most selfish things, even if unintentional.

    We've gotten to the point where just to be competitive, Dame has to play perfect. When he has an off-night, we're sunk. We're really bad when Dame's not playing Superman.

    I like Michael Holton silently calling out the Blazers
