    Every single player just came up to Kaleb and gave him a hug. Crazy!

    Can we fire Kaleb Canales so that we'll win on Sunday?

    Team morale obviously just increased by about 500%

    My brain wanted us to tank, my heart wanted us to win.

    And I'm glad we did.

    What a performance. Haven't been this happy about a Blazer win in a LONG time, and it actually hurts us.

    I don't believe it. First game in a while that I really enjoyed watching.

    Great to hear! Nolan played well, Babbit wasn't horrible and Canales is undefeated as a head coach. Great story tonight, let's hope that this holds up... To a certain extent... Unless we go rings this year.

    The Bulls scored 10 points in the 4th quarter? What a collapse! Nice work, Blazers

    Babbitt played with a ton of energy. Hopefully he gets more minutes against some lesser teams.

    I'm of the mind that the lords of karma reward teams/fans who remain competitive even while in the lottery - such as we were rewarded in 2007 - if you take out the fact that Greg's body is imploding on itself. Like how Chicago was rewarded in 2008 with Rose, how we weren't in 2006, etc.

    So I am all for competitive playing and trying, with hopefully a good payoff in the end for the future.

    Blazers played with more poise than the best team in the league (minus their star) the entire 4th quarter. Blazers. Poise. Great guard play. Blazers. Nate gone, Blazers guards play well, team plays loose, poised, with intensity. Ding, Dong the witch is dead.

    The Blazers' pick isn't even the one to worry about. It's NJ's pick we need to worry about, and that is out of Portland's hands.

    Enjoy the win and hope it continues.

    HEY, I hope people see this, but...

    If we tank this year = good draft pick
    If we actually play with intensity and fire and win games = more attractive to FAs this summer.

    It's a WIN/WIN

    If he shows this kind of enthusiasm on the sidelines every night, HELL FUCKIN YA.

    His energy is contagious.
