Who Thinks This Is The First Time Trailblazers Fans Have Felt Like This?

Friday, June 29, 2007

Okay, well other than the one title that Bill Walton got them.

That's cool as hell. You gotta love how Portland has turned that franchise around in just two short years. And to think they used to start Damon Stoudemire, Darius Miles, Zach Randolph, Ruben Patterson, Isiah Rider, and Ref Shover Nick Van Exel!

Jailblazers no more!

I'll eat my shoe if the Trail Blazers' fans haven't felt this way again...by selecting Sam Bowie rather than MJ. I still don't get why everyone has such a hard-on over Oden.

I'd say that he is much more of a Anthony Mason/Motumbo prototype than a Hakeem/O'Neal prototype.

Good move to get rid of Randolph, but they have to be disappointed to get Steve Francis in return. He's way underperformed in the past few years, and I believe he has a huge contract. Channing Frye is a nice pickup, though.

As for Oden, I predict goodness but not greatness. I think Durant will be better, but I also don't think Oden will be a Same Bowie.

Kevin, good point about Francis. While Oden may not be as oft-injured as Bowie, and in turn be a bit more productive over a longer time, I just can't believe for a second that he'll out-perform Durant.

Durant surely can't get any smaller and weaker (the inability to bench press 180 lbs comes to mind), but then again, what the eff could MJ bench when he got drafted?

What a steal for the Sonics.

The only time you can rush the floor, is when the team isn't playing. I missed those NBA days.

blazers fans should be excited as should sonics fans.

by the way of the previously listed players who was the worst in terms of jailblazing.

I think ruben patterson hes a registered sex offender.
