    15.7%
  4. No, we need his scoring punch off the bench.

    47.1%
  5. No, he makes our starting unit too small.

    Absolutely not true but that is your perspective so i can agree to disagree on this.

    Dame was more a SG than a PG coming out of College. And he still looks to me like a SG.
    The excuse that Dame is trapped is just an excuse. We have guys on the team who can handle the ball decently enough like Turner/CJ.
    Why can't we run screens for Dame to get him open shots? What has happened to Dame's midrange game?
    Stotts still hasn't learned from the Pelicans series from last year and the previous 2 series against the Warriors.
    This is really sad, when your coaching staff is incompetent.

    I was looking for this also. It's there. He could take that 10 foot jumper quite often.

    Dame does need to work on terminating his dribble short instead of always fishing for a whistle on a layin. If he had an assortment of pull-ups and tear-drops, the defense would be able to anticipate him always going to the rack...they'd be more off-balance. And he'd actually be likely to draw more fouls that way

    I’d actually agree with you on this Chris, but everyone of you know why that other small market teams can attract all stars but Portland can’t. No night life..,KEEP PTOWN WIERD yippee. Maybe we can get Channing and Robin back to PTown because that’s about as good as it’s going to get. Call me an A-hole. It it’s the reality and it’s depressing. This is coming from a guy that was born the same year the franchise was originated and was there with his father for the the 77 Championship at the Coliseum.

    Yea man Chris your a good man. I was giving you guys a hard time tonight just because I feel the pain. Mostly what I stated was the truth. I was their in 77 with my Dad and his friends. I’ll never forget it the coliseum was absolutely rocking even at 6 years old I knew it was special. I’ll never forget it. To this day it was one of the best days of my life. The parade after and just the entire city connected was unforgettable. I was the guy that went to the Hillsboro airport to meet the team after coming back into town in the early 90’s championship runs. Wow it’s been a ride.

    Don’t give up hope. Here’s what has to happen. Zack has to START from game one next year. He also has to swallow his ego just enough to get the Refs off his back or he has to get a new haircut because although I like it the Refs don’t. Nurk has to get healthy completely by mid season and start coming back into game form. The only way the pressure can be relieved from Dame. Is our front court has to be our dominant offensive and defensive asset. Once he is relieved of the pressure then this team can advance. This is as long as Durant moves onto the Knicks.

    A few hours ago it was all sunshine and rainbows, now you're saying you'd be booing? At least be respectable enough to stick by your team if you're going to go down that path.

    I know we are not winning this series and now we know Dame’s separated rib injury but I would like us to win at least 1 game.

    I agree it was uncalled for it won’t happen again. At the same time don’t let your wife see it I’ve got enough waiting in line.

    I saw that too. It was entertaining in an otherwise very disheartening second half. The two security workers had a difficult time trying to get him up the stairs; he was a big guy.

    On my way out of the game, right by the doors, someone spilled their beer from the walkway up above. Luckily I avoided it, but the person I was talking with got a little shower. At least he had his coat on. I'm not sure if it was a disgruntled Blazers fan trying to hit the two Warriors fans in front of me, or a Warriors fan trying to get all of us. Couldn't see who did it. All I know is, that person is a fucking asshole, and I hope they get theirs.
