    And it is paying off....
    Oregon Live-
     "I love D.C.," McMillan said. "He plays the game the right way. I've heard people talk about Wesley, and how he plays the way I want. Well, D.C. plays the way I want. He's physical, he defends first, and offensively he's pretty solid with his jump shot. But his main thing is he is normally in the right place defensively."

    Cunningham is firmly entrenched as the Blazers' backup power forward to LaMarcus Aldridge, a role that figures to have increased now that Aldridge will share time at center after Jeff Pendergraph suffered a season-ending right knee injury on Thursday.

    If the team's three preseason games are any indication, Cunningham is up to the task. He is averaging 14.0 points and 8.7 rebounds while playing aggressive defense. In the past two games he has had 18 points and 10 rebounds at Utah and 15 points and 10 rebounds at Denver.
     "Doing all the dirty work is what I pride myself in; I actually love doing that," Cunningham said. "A lot of times you don't get the media attention, but at the end of the day, that's what helps a team win, that's what makes a championship team."

    I'm liking the toughness direction our team is heading in. Wesley, Joel, Dante, and Jerryd all bring that hard-nosed style of play that will only wear down teams over the course of 48 minutes.

    Abba so loot ly
    DC, Jerryd, and Pendergraph's smashmouth type basketball is something we've been missing on this team for some time. Heart and intelligence, over late night parties and getting arrested.

    After seeing the team live last night for the first time this season they do seem a bit tougher and really dialed in the D from last season. DC, Wesley, and Bayless on that second unit changes gears both on offense and on defense. 

    Gotta love DC's mindset, that last quote saids it all.

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    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...
