    A win-streak of 9 is fine, but 10 would be the ultimate zen!

    The Blazers should be called the "Garbage Men" because they just took out the trash (Warriors).

    By now, I thought that you would notice the mistake in the rosters made when you added Pappagiannis. You have Collins twice (once under Ed) and have left out Leonard in the names. Can you fix it?

    Great job! Our marketing department should have changed the pin wheel to your design rather than a color swap.

    Let

    Down

    Game

    Huge win against the defending champs, with a full two days to enjoy/celebrate it, and a lesser team coming in, with LeBron on the agenda later in the week...I've got a bad feeling about this one.

    On the other hand, maybe the extra day helps them focus on the Heat. If it was just one day off or a B to B then I think you might be right. But with the extra day to watch film and come up with a game plan, I don't think they will overlook them. Plus the Heat play tonight in Miami, so Monday is their first game out west. The 7:30 PM tip off will be like 11:30 for them. (Counting the switch to daylight savings time)

    Thanks, but it's not my design. I found these graphics online.
