    Man, even though in my gut I feel this will be short lived, it's kinda cool to be able to say the Blazers are #1 in the western conference.

    Top 3 seed is what we need. The team with the best record in the NBA the last two seasons has lost in the second round. Warriors were 3 seed with 53 wins last season. That's all I want. If it's #1 fine, that's what I predicted, but top 3 is my requirement for championship dreams.

    Crazy that Top 3 teams in the West are all from the Northwest Division.

    It took 4 or 5 huge 3's in the final minutes to beat this tough Blazer team....even without a full team. They didn't cave, give up, or stop playing hard and giving a shit.

    Perhaps I am still proud even in the face of a loss. Portland is quickly becoming the team no one wants to play. They wear you. Just watch Dame taking on Luka defensively. Says it all.

    Nice to see them getting some recognition. The team.... Not the senior members.

    I know that SOS rankings don't mean much at this point, but considering how Portland has performed, it's interesting to see where they rank so far in terms of strength of schedule:

    Interesting comment. What the heck does age have to with it? I see brilliance, and stupidity...across the age spectrum.

    I think they mean "senior" in terms of duration of presence on these boards, rather than actual age.

    That's how I took it too. I wouldn't be surprised to see some correlation between time spent here and stupidity.

    Thanks for clarifying. My bad. Guess my "get off my lawn quirk" got the best of me. :cheers:

    I still want to know how it is that all of the 'senior posters' have 113 trophy points...all of them....except for one poster who just happens to have 115 trophy points. Obvious corruption and it isn't even that sly....if you catch my drift

    Is a trophy point, like a trophy mate?

    Oh, I’m catching a drift. I think it’s from two piles Sly left behind.

    I meant time on the forum naturally. IT was typed in jest. I am getting to old-fart state myself after all.

    Age is just a number.
    It's how you feel that counts!
