    Watching the TNT half-time show the first thing out of his mouth is, "The fans in Portland don't think the Blazers have a chance in this series".

    This is probably the most idiotic thing I have ever heard this guy say.

    Then after the game he says, "Phoenix is still the dominant team."

    Really Charles? Is that why Portland is now 3-1 against the Suns this season? If this is what defines domination in Barkley's mind, then I hope they dominate us this way the rest of the series. Seriously, I think it's time for Charles to find a new line of work, because stating his analysis is correct because he, "Lives in Phoenix" is just pathetic.

    You know, I was wondering what Chuck had said when I saw comments referring to him on OregonLive earlier today - is he CRAZY??!! Why the heck would we think our team didn't have a chance? After all we have been through this season - we know we can get through the times, so this challenge was just another one in a long line of tests we have had this season and we obviously passed the first "part" (=Game 1) with flying colors!

    I read on MB's blog that Kenny Smith tried to defend us a bit, but every since their ignorant comments last year when Rudy was in the dunk contest, I'm not a fan of either of those guys, though up until then, I was a big fan of the TNT show in general. 

    Anyways, onto Game 2 - let's do it again Blazers and can't wait to see the crowd at the Garden bringing the noise in Games 3 and 4!!! 

    GO BLAZERS!!!

    Everything else out of his mouth is just as dumb, I really don't care about what he thinks thats why Kenny and EJ are on that show. He's that old guy that played a lot of ball and thinks he knows the game inside and out, but has a really low B-Ball I.Q.

I've heard him bad mouth Portland before, He's got some sort of issue with us! Oh well, He's gonna be eating his words when Rip City shows up in Phoenix Tuesday night!!

    Charles Barkley is a complete IDIOT and that's just my opinion for his statement last night.  When he said that you wouldn't be able to find anyone in Portland that believed Portland would win this series I was totally baffled.  Really Charles, then why are the Blazers even playing the game, let's just throw in the towel and go home.  He hates Portland and always has so he will never admit that Portland is a great team.  I BELIEVE IN THE PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS AND KNOW THEY CAN WIN, YES WIN, THIS SERIES AGAINST THE SUNS!!!!  I wish Kenny & EJ would have just smacked him behind the fat rolls on his fat head!!

    Charles is just sticking up for his old team and home town.  He can be very annoying at times,yes.  But he also cracks me up a lot with his,"say it before he thinks it," approach.  He just assumed Blazer fans only consider stats.  We know this team has a chance against the Suns.  We're Blazer fans....anything's possible.  Now let's take care of game two and shut ol' Chuckie B up!

    We are talking about him. He has won. This is the reason TNT keeps him on is because he stirs the pot and gets people talking. Personally, I don't mind him. He says what he thinks and I take whatever he says with a grain of salt. He's there strictly for entertainment purposes.

    Charles is and will always be on the TNT show because he is the entertainment, every time something horribly inaccurate or stupid comes out of his mouth all the execs think the same thing: "CHA-CHING." I could care less about what Barkley says about Portland, and I also say BRING IT ON, keep underestimating us you'll be the one eating your words when we win.

    Charles Barlley is an idiot, everyone knows that.  As a matter of fact the entire TNT halfttime annoucers are a poor excuse for annoucers to start with.  Doug Collins who usually annoces our games is the only person on the entire crew that gives any respect.  When we win this series in four games Barkley just might shut up!  But I doubt it

    Charles Barkley and John Cazano are just alike.  They both have no clue what there talking about, and they both will always have a job because they stir the pot and that crap brings in the audience and viewers!!!! I think Barkey is amusing but Cazano is mentally retarded!

    You may not like what the "Round Mound of Rebound" says, but you always get it straight and consistent. My question to him would be, when was the last time he was at the RG or in Portland for that matter, to find out how we feel. Hey Charles, who is selling out every game?

    People, take it easy, it's just Charles being Charles. For the most part he is funny. Sure he's reckless and goofy, that's why TNT keeps him. You really can't believe much of what he says cause he don't even believe it. It's a show!

    Ya when he also said they(TNT) need to put the good game on TV on Monday, refering to the Spurs game instead of ours, kind of set me off a bit..also they better put game 6 on TNT as well..if you have the cable in southwest washington, they don't have KGW, so it would be tragic for them and the rest of the country to be denined the series clincher. Charles thinks he's all that, but we just need to win the series to put him back on the treadmill..Kill the Suns!!

    Oh you're just mad cuz the Suns superstars have always been better than your superstars.  Barkley was better than Drexler, Kevin Johnson ran circles around Terry Porter, Nash is far superior compared to Roy (BTW Roy is overrated), and STAT kills Lamarcus "Soft" Aldridge.  Oh yeah, Suns have the better mascot if not the best mascot in all of sports.  The only thing that the Blazers have going for them is the refs on their side.  They stole Game 4 for Portland.

    Hey PHXSUXS89 -

    Whoops I guess I spelled that wrong. Oh well, I am sure that you will not mind.
    As for your wonderfully insightful comments.
    Lets see what we can break it down into
    1st Charles Barkley was better than Clyde Drexler? Wow just look at the stats and the careers - Clyde outranks Charles completely - Nothing more needs to be said about that.
    2nd - Kevin Johnson ran circles around Terry Porter? - Only when Terry was taking a breather on the Bench.
    3rd - Nash is far superior to Roy? - Ha, ha ha. Wow, what planet do you live on anyway?
    Finally, your pathetic monkey compared to Blaze? Enough said!

    You know I think that it is great that you take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to come visit us lonely Blazer fans. I am sure that you are losing valuable time in your highly productive life in order to give us that extra attention. Wow, we just can't thank you enough for blessing us with your witty, humerous comments...

    So the horribly busy schedule, is that why you leave the Phoenix games early? even if they are winning? It must be so you can get to the internet and share your time with us. That is so special.

    Thanks again for all the attention you have been giving us, we don't know what we would do without you here. I mean no matter what, we always could use a good laugh!
    Take care of yourself and I am sure that we will see you back here after game 6, as we head to game 7!!!

    I am a fan of Being a part of the best fans in the league.

    Hey rmonturdo175

    Whoops I guess I spelled that wrong, HO HO!  Oh well, I am sure you do not have a mind.
    As for your wonderfully insightful backhanded attempt at a response to PHXSUNS89.
    Lets break down your horrible misconceptions about everything that you tried to pass off as fact which were actually made up in your own head.

    1st, you claim that Clyde Drexler outranks Charles Barkley completely and back up your statement by inviting the reader to review their respective careers and stats.  I did - they both had pretty impressive careers;  nothing on the stat sheet jumps out and shows either player was any significantly better.  Chuck has more charisma and is still publicly involved, leading a #1 hit show on TNT.  +1 Charles Barkley
    2nd Kevin Johnson owned Terry Porter every time they played - youtube some of the games if you don't believe me.  You were right about one thing, towards the end of Porter's career he seemed to be stuck on that bench while KJ was posterizing the likes of Hakeem Olajuwan.  Furthermore, we're talking about the same Terry Porter that did an ATROCIOUS job coaching, failing to take basically the same Suns team (minus Shaq) to the finals!  KJ is now a mayor in Sacramento.  +1 Kevin Johnson
    3rd - PHXSUNS89, along with me, live on Planet Orange.  It's a heavenly place where our point guard wins the MVP trophy TWICE... oh wait that happened in your world too huh.  I don't recall Brandon Roy winning any MVP trophies.. hmm.

    Lastly, our pathetic monkey has won best mascot countless times since he became our mascot - his name is Go the Gorilla and he took offense to you calling him a monkey - you're a monkey.  Nobody has ever heard of "Blaze", I don't even know what the heck he could be and I don't care he sounds dumb.  I'm sure he hasn't won any accolades whatsoever. 

    Thanks again for all the attention you draw to yourselves, we don't know what we would do without you guys. I mean no matter what, we always could use a good laugh!
    Take care of yourselves and we are sure that we will see you next seasons when hopefully your team can sign some players that know how to take care of their knees and don't spend their time off taking pictures of their own crotch.   ;)

    The past is the past, it isn't over yet.
    The most accurate thing barkley has ever said about the Blazers was...
    " you better beat them while you can "  "with a low post presence, the are frightning "
    He hit's a nerve with Blazer fans , mainly because what he says is true, 3 years has been a LONG WAIT for Oden,  and he's a homer for Phoenix.
    It's sad that Phoenix fans have nothing better to do, than troll Blazer sites.  Try selling out for a playoff game :)

    I am a die-hard Suns fan, but I will be the first to admit that our hometown fan-base is atrocious.  We have been extremely fortunate in piecing together such a talented and cohesive team, and have fans all around the world watching the Suns do what they do, but when push comes to shove the people living in Arizona are the ones representing the team and that's really unfortunate because more than half the population are snow birds and trend-seeking yuppies that have absolutely no sense of pride in their city or sports teams.  For Phoenicians it's the trendy thing to do to go to a playoff game, and when they're getting beat (a rare occasion) half of the arena leaves before the 4th quarter even starts!  It's always been like that here, it drives me insane and Portland hands down has the better home crowd, its not even close - you guys rock and i'll give you all the credit in the world for being among the top 5 best basketball crowds in the nation.

    As for your team, I like Portland, I think they have a bright future especially when all of their players get healthy; you guys are young, big bodied and talented with a heck of a coach.  This series is most likely over after tomorrow night though.  You guys put up a spirited fight, i feel as if we teetered on rivalry territory but your team was just too depleted to make me want to hate you as much as I hate the spurs and the lakers. I'm just stating facts - i'm not trolling i'm a fan of basketball and I wanted to see what the opponent has to say about the games it's a way of immersing myself even more into the series.  I was just setting your boy straight when he made absolutely zero sense on his previous post, not trolling ;)

    Phoenix may very well win the series, but I'm not sure they will do it tomorrow night. Portland may be depleted and injured but they don't want to go down on their home floor. I also don't see a heated rivalry coming from this series either, friendly yes, but not bitter. You have LA and the Spurs, we'll take the Lakers, Jazz, and Nuggets. Most Portland fans respect your team, just not Amare at the moment.
