    Something clearly behind the scenes happened after that laker game in staples. We only won like 2 times since

    I’m sure it’ll leak whatever it is

    that's my take, there's something fishy about this drop off and the timing of it

    This is not likely. Something must have distracted him or something. They have a long relationship.

    It's like teams are just plain teeing off on the Blazers right now? Crazy?

    The funny thing is the Blazers will real off one big streak some time in the next month or so, fans will be all giddy, everybody will be calling for my head then guess what ??

    They’ll fuck up once AGAIN in the 1st round. Rinse and repeat

    I'd say roster changes would be the first guess...coaching change second..coach is liked by his players from everything I've seen

    Trades are normal though. Even the tightest buddies are conditioned for them. My guessing is something bigger.

    Hey at least our players are choir boys and better fit for the community, that’s all that matters right. They are role models outside the court.

    Look i know the mantra. A bunch think they know what will happen. But this team is better than we are seeing now. Something isn't right and they are having mental losses it looks like to me. If they get a few wins and start playing well then they might get this turned around. If they can play well enough to create confidence and win late game situations then they can win a few games in the playoffs. That is the best they were ever expected to do anyway right? Lets at least look for that instead of beating them down before they even get halfway through the season.

    I wonder if this has anything to do with Melo?

    Doubtful. Everybody around Melo is saying he's done. If Lillard and CJ threw a tantrum then it would have been last year.

    I remember hearing somebody saying the team might have lost trust in each other. I mean not trusting that they will do their job and trying to do too much to compensate. Yeah they’re friends and such but maybe there is a thing called being too close. I mean when you get down to it. It’s just a job but you need to be able to call each other out and then go out and forget about it and just do your damn job like you are getting paid a ton of money..... cause you are.
