    There's that...rookies gonna rookie bro! Gotta learn to finish at the rim with both hands if you're that small....he'll learn. Dame is a tough act to follow to say the least. Chauncey, however is in year 3 and just doesn't have the chops yet...my 2 cents...I miss Stotts honestly. Chauncey to me is further from being a top head coach than Scoot is from being a starting pt guard.

    I miss Stotts and making the Playoffs. That said Phil Jackson with Red Auerbach as his assistant would have won this past 3 seasons either.

    +/- is the sorriest excuse somebody can use to determine a player’s value. As you will see next season when that dude is asking if you want to supersize your fries.

    Ashton was playing good defense. He was making it tough on the Magic. If Billups hadn't benched him, the Blazers might have won. Then people would swear at the stupid W messing up ping pong percentages.

    NO WAY! I assumed this place would be going crazy about that non call.

    It was a terrible no call and I'd be pissed if we needed the win but gave us another loss and regardless of how devoid of talent you think this draft is, I think losing is worth far more than winning right now. A win means nothing and a loss means a better possibility of more players to choose from in the draft and that's a good thing even if the draft doesn't yield any superstars.

    Even in a weak draft the option of choosing from all of the players is better than having the top player on your board gone when you pick.

    since we're continually lowering expectations for Portland, it's only fair to lower expectations for the refs too.
