    He has a hamstring injury and might not play. Does @Darkwebs know something we don't? If he were to drop 40 (season high) with a tender hammy, I would have Mrs HCP wear a bag over her head.

    RE the poll:

    I'm done with Turner and Aminu. Turner is obvious. As for Aminu, the things he does 'well' we can get from just about every other player of similar stature in the NBA, and more. And don't talk to me about his rebounding. My anecdotal observation is that he takes a lot of his rebounds from teammates. There's nothing wrong with that, at least he's going for them, but IMO it inflates his perceived worth as a rebounder. Also, last night I noticed three times Aminu missed a wide open three point shooter, and made a bad decision passing to the wrong player or keeping the ball. The guy just plays dumb. I want both of them replaced by players with fewer negatives. This year.

    Just my two pesos.

    :cheers:

    The eyeball test tells me Aminu averages less than 2 CONTESTED rebounds per game. Those uncontested rebounds could literally be taken by any other Blazer since nobody leaks out on the break...and even if we did, I certainly wouldn't want Aminu throwing the outlet pass.

    I will say that back in 2012, it was a blowout loss to the Knicks that got us Lillard. We fired Nate and traded Crash (for Lillard pick) the next day.

    That was a despicable tank job by our so called veterans. Marcus Camby and Gerald Wallace both sickened me that night.

    Poll: Stotts, Turner, Aminu, Olshey. In that order. With the first two basically tied. With a nice little shit knot.

    This will be a very interesting game to watch. Two long guards who can shoot/score over ours? If we lose this game due to guard scoring then . . .

    I can already hear Colabro with about 6 minutes left..."and just like that this pesky young Suns team is right back in this game, down only 3, timeout Portland..''

    If they lose to Phoenix w/o Booker at home and they don't fire Stotts on the way to the Locker room, I think that has to prove the whole organization management and all has quit and is just waiting for an ownership change.

    I’m really hoping they do lose... why keep delaying the inevitable... this team needs change and it’s unfortunate it takes Neil a massive losing streak to see this

    If they lose tomorrow and make no changes, I honestly kind of think the white flag has been raised and it’ll change my outlook on the whole season.

    I never root for them to lose. But I do wish they would make changes/adjustments after so many years of basically the same thing. Then again, Stotts isn't great at adjustments so maybe I'm expecting too much for Neil to either.

    I don’t want to root for loses, but feel I’m forced into it by that egotistical clown Neil Olshey... if they win tomorrow all of a sudden things are back on track and he can sweep this team’s problems under the rug

    Some trade is coming, we need to keep winning. About to start a good winning streak but we still do need trades
