    Thought I would share this via Portland Roundball Society/Twitter:

    Full story: http://www.portlandroundballsociety...s-act.html

    Excerpt: 

     

    The car pulled up right beside us, I can only speak for myself but I’m pretty sure all of our hearts jumped a bit thinking someone was going to give us a ride. The window rolled down and a hand holding fabric we walked up to the window we didn’t focus on the face at first, we were just trying to figure out what was going on. A voice that seemed nearly disembodied told us “Hey guys I saw your Blazer gear and just wanted to let you know that we love that you guys come down here to see us and I wanted to say thank you, it means a lot.”

    We all looked at each other seemingly all with the same thought, “Is that, I think it is….it’s Dante Cunningham.”

    Jeff and I were in the best position to grab what it was that Dante was holding our for us, Jeff however was wiping either the disbelief or bottled water out of his eyes so I nabbed it first. After I grabbed (the jersey), Dante looked at us all and said, “That’s the one I wore through all the games thanks again guys.”

    We mumble a conglomeration of different fan remarks, “Thanks so much,” “good to meet you,” “great game.” So forth. Dante shock all our hands, waved and said, “see you all in Portland,” And drove off

    We were all in shock “Did that just happen?” was the common expression on our faces.


    DC is one classy guy, what a awesome experience to share from Summer League.

    Wow. It's great that a player would do that. Dante is a great guy. While that jersey may mean absolutely nothing to him, it means a lot to a fan that he would just drive up and hand it to you. Portland has come a long way since the Jail Blazers.

    I love DC! I would hate to see him go in any trades as well...This just makes me like him even more. :)
    I am a fan of the Blazers once again, rising above all odds and injuries!

    Let's hope it doesn't take 5 years for him to mature his talents. That's  why he's a Blazer. Class act.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
