    Really shows something since we've been on such a long road trip. Want to see us maintain this type of performance.

    When I was looking at this 7 game road trip I was thinking about trying to get together again for a viewing party. But these 10 am games with me working until midnight the day before wasn't gonna happen. lol.

    Another genius move to part ways with Batum.

    If only these millennials had the patience of a 64 year old they wouldn't look as foolish. :biglaugh:

    I was once a big fan of Nic - but by the time he left it was actually a relief! Can you imagine how good he would have been if he had Aminu's heart and motor?

    She is head and shoulders above what this forum has accumulated though. Probably knows more about basketball as well. :devilwink:

    Yes, I'm 64 and have no expectation that the Blazers will be back in the finals in my lifetime. To quote the starving buzzard "patience my ass...I'm going to kill something!"

    Yeah, you can question Aminus shooting and decision making, but you can never question the effort he puts out every night.

    I always have high expectations. I just don't get overly emotional over which way it goes.

    You need to adjust your attitude. I’m 66 and fully remember that nobody had expectations that the Blazers would be in the finals the year they won the title.

    If we can undo last year's letdown, I'll be happy.

    Nothing wrong with that. I would suggest, however, that the "fans" who deserve scorn are the ones who abandoned the team during the "jailblazers" nonsense or the PaterNash era. Those of us who stuck it out have earned the right to be here!

    Thats true and they had a high post center that could pass the ball pretty well and made players around him better.
    They also had a few newbies, Corky & Herm.

    Actually.......I remember back then my wife used to babysit a kid she had taught as a student teacher. The girl’s step father was a huge Blazer fan and had season tickets. He spent a great deal of time (he had a very flexible job) watching them in the pre season (back when most anyone could wander in and watch them practice). I still remember him looking at me wide eyed one day after watching them right before the first game and telling me that this team was special and they were going to blow people’s minds and go all the way. He was deadly serious. I thought he was utterly nuts but we know how it all turned out. The current team shows some amazing flashes on both ends when they’re in the groove, and if they can ever do it consistently for sustained periods I think they have a good of a shot as anyone......
