    That is counting the one we just finished. Plus we play 16 games which average every other night.

    We will play 22 back to backs this year while the L*kers plays 10. Doesn’t that seem unfair?

     

     I don't usually get into the schedule too much, but this is going to be rough on a injury riddled team on the brink of disaster.

    Do you think this is sabotage? Do you think the schedule may have been the cause of our recent injury problem?  Or do you think we are just unlucky?

     

    Of course none of the above or all of the above.

    Schedule doesn't mean anything. This isn't college football where you can choose who you will. We will play every team in the league at least twice (more if they're in our conference) and it is the same for each and every team. NO EXCUSES

    Not saying that, I agree with you on the schedule. I am referring to the backto backs.

    It does seem unfair, so I checked and the Lakers actually have 15 back to backs and we have 21, which is still not very fair but that is better than 2:1. Where did you get those numbers from, Mike Barrett? I think I heard him say we had 22 and the Lakers had 10 at the beginning of the year so I checked because I was so angry at the obvious advantage given by the NBA. I don't know where he got those numbers from except if you include preseason then we have 22 total b2b's, but if you include the Lakers preseason then they have 17 total. Maybe Mike Barrett was stretching the truth to get us angry? The Lackers still have the advantage though. The NBA should make the schedules the same for every team, I don't understand why every team doesn't have the same amount of b2b's. The Lakers had the lowest out of every team I checked.

    Lakers won the Finals, so therefore, you can't really complain that they have the fewest back-to-backs, because if you look at back-to-backs as a bad thing, then they've technically earned the right to have the least amount of them

    That is ridiculous, you don't earn the right to have the least amount of back to backs!!? You earn the right to get home court advantage, you earn the right to be called the Champs, but you do not earn an easier schedule than the rest of the NBA, that is stupid. That's like saying the last team to score should automatically get an extra free throw next time because they earned the right to have free throws because they scored last.

    Ok Tom, exactly. THEN WHY ARE PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT OUR SCHEDULE? we're not the best team in the league or even close to it.  That is very hypocritical of you to say that. Why are you saying our schedule is unfair then?

    I don't understand what you are saying. I said it was an unfair advantage! I also said every team should have an equal amount of b2b. I do not see where that is hypocritical of me.

    You play the regular season to get a playoff position and then you play the playoffs to get that trophy, you do not get the trophy to have an unfair advantage in the schedule the following year.

    I am also saying that our schedule is unfair because we have FIVE MORE BACK TO BACK GAMES than the Lakers and almost everyone I looked at except the Bulls.

    You are not making any sense.

    last year the blazers thrive on back to back games(i think they only lost 2 or 3 of the second night of such) this year though, it would help if they weren't playing so many games this year.

    Also I was trying to clarify my statement since you are not smart enough to understand calling me a hypocrite. I also asked you a question directly and your lack of intellect came up with "Tom you complain too much". Such bold claims coming from your mouth with nothing to back it up except cheap shots that have nothing to do with anything.

    And btw thats all I've ever seen you do, you go around complaining to everyone that they complain too much.

    And of course the brilliant Tayc has to run around like a child agreeing with anyone who disagrees with me.

    Tom, this is what I'm talking about. You freak out over everything. I know much more about basketball than you do and you just can't accept that. Have you ever even played basketball at the high school or collegiate level? Probably not. Just shut your mouth every once and a while. It helps. And no I don't complain about people complaining too much, it's just I get tired of people who like the Blazers (as I do) complain about EVERY LITTLE THING when things don't go our way. It's ridiculous.  Grow up please.  And how is that a cheap shot and what do you want me to answer.  And why do you hate on TayC? Geez

    First of all, this is what you are talking about? I freak out over everything? No you were talking about me complaining too much. You can't even keep you own damn facts straight.

    You know much more about basketball than me? ha ha I didn't realize I was in a grade school competition. But your basketball knowledge is pretty amazing I admit. According to you the champs get an easier schedule than the rest of the NBA. Brilliant. So in the finals not only are they playing for the title, they are also playing for next seasons schedule. Oh and you have proved your knowledge by saying I am complaining relentlessly. You are obviously delusional.

    Yes I played ball, have you? I doubt it with the way you follow me around to complain that I am complaining all the time. What an oxymoronic thing to do. In a different thread I gave a perfect example of how the media favors other teams and you barge in sayin "I'm tired of people complaining wahhhhahhh!" Now I am telling the OP in this thread that he was wrong and it is actually not as bad for the Blazers as he thought, and the Blazers play 22 b2b while the Lakers play 17 and I am sympathizing with him. But of course in BOTH threads you misunderstood what I have said (you even admitted it in the other one but I guess your puny brain has forgotten) and in this one it almost seems like you think I am the op. Why don't you shut the hell up once in a while and read before you speak. You don't like what I say ignore it, don't bitch to me how you don't like people to complain. That's not my problem and i don't care. This is a forum to vent our feelings and frustrations, and yes sometimes people complain, that is life get over yourself. What do you live in a box or something? Also, can you name more than those two things to validate your claim of me complaining too much?
    I think you are overreacting.

    AND YOU CANT EVEN READ. I asked how am I being a hypocrite and you still have not answered it yet. I ask again, what was I being hypocritical about? The truth is NOTHING. That is why you haven't answered it yet and just resort to immature cop outs saying "Grow up" and "You complain too much".

    And why do I hate on Tayc? Because he does exactly what he did in here all the time. He scours the forum to find anything he can pile on me and agrees with any view opposite of mine. And he does the same thing you do, he calls people out on his misreadings of what people have said and then makes up stories to make him look better, like you, and then doesn't back it up. And like you, he is wrong a LOT. But mostly it's when he starts calling me names and saying stuff like "grow up" which are personal attacks and I don't take that crap from people.

    ha ha. ok dude.
    I am trying to have a mature conversation, I asked a LOOONG time ago what was I being hypocritical about? But you turn it into an immature conversation telling me to grow up, you come at me with these accusations and now you are coming at me trying to explain myself. AND YOU STILL HAVE NOT ANSWERED MY QUESTION!!! I guess you were just being stupid and don't want to admit it?

    Sarah, this has been dead for a few days and a certain someone (TAYC) has tried to resurrect the "off topic" segment to troll me once again. I don't see why this is hard to understand or see, because that's all he does to me. I also don't understand why you guys don't tell him to stop with the trolling? And if you have why is he still continuing to do it? Maybe if he'd quit trolling me I wouldn't get so upset and use words like "ridiculous". Quite honestly he relentlessly trolls me EVERY TIME I come in here and I do snap at people because of it. Even worse, when I say something like  "ridiculous" you guys step in and say something and yet when he follows me around ALL THE TIME harrassing me you guys do nothing. And now it seems I have two trolls on my butt with blazersforlife234 following me around as well, not talking about anything Blazers when he talks to me.

    Tom all you do is start crap with people. No one follows you. Just don't be rude to people, like myself, who are actually true basketball/blazer fans and not just blind homers like yourself, and everything will be just fine

    i don't necessarily think people are complaining as much as pointing out the number of back-to-backs. five for one month does seem like a higher number than usual by comparison to other months during the season. as i write this, we just won both games of a back-to-back against two quality teams, orlando and phoenix. i'm certainly not complaining about those wins.

    i think the college football analogy fails to hold water. yes, college football teams have some control over the non-conference opponents. however, they're not required to play those opponents in games any more frequently than other teams' schedules. and just because you win the championship one year does not earn you the right to play fewer back-to-backs than other teams; at least not in a league whose administration is geared toward seeing large-market teams in the spotlight. ideally, each team should have the same number of back-to-backs. there's no reason for that not to be the case.

    The win against the Magic was very impressive and had me believing that they can beat any team (including the Spurs) The Suns aren't as good as they used to be but still a fast pace team but we made them look small the last 2 games and i'm sure we took their confidence away from them beating them 3 times this season. I'm sure the Spurs will be aware of how well we been playing the last 4 games, Spurs are a smart veteran team that gets the job done. I feel this will be a whole different ball game, I'm uneasy about playing the Spurs on the road because this is a team that can be a threat in the western conference playoffs, a good test for Portland. We already proved we can beat the best teams in the league, but with the Spurs there is no room for many mistakes, we are capable of getting it done as long as we play are best, like we did against the Magic.

    Sort of beside the point, but at least your getting somewhere, injured or not, we can beat some of the best in the league. I feel the same about the next game as well with Spurs being a power in the west, it shouldn't be a surprise if they outplay us or outplay any other team for that matter, I mean they are the Spurs, but I won't argue with you about our team making very few mistakes and turnovers to win Sunday. Lets see how they do.

    Thank you, at least someone can read that has some sense. What's more difficult is we had a a b2b and then had one day off, then another b2b! Plus then we have another day off, play the Mavs, have one day off then proceed to have ANOTHER b2b! I mean come on, take a real look at that, that is a bit harsh. It would be nice to give them 2 or 3 days off in between b2b's. That's not complaining, it's talking about the schedule being rough during this month. But of course I now have 2 trolls following me around (even if they say they aren't) being irrational and juvenile so it makes me look like all I do is argue and complain.

    Also your comment about winning the championship doesn't earn you the right to have fewer b2b is exactly right. I just think that would be the most ridiculous thing for the NBA to do, and yet they seem to have done it anyway. I wonder what the schedules would look like if you went back every year and compared them.

    The comment about the Lakers winning a championship, and thus, being able to choose their own schedule was a joke.  But of course, someone with no sense of humor ^^, doesn't get that.  The thing I don't understand about people's logic is that yes, we have back-to-backs, but don't people then realize that since all teams play EXACTLY 82 regular season games, that that only means we have more days off later on in the season than other teams.  I'm just more of an optimist than you guys, so my logic tells me that next month and from there on out we have more rest than other teams:)

    well to be honest i dont thin the "more rest" even matters for us or teams like the lakers.....
    Because they won last year, and they are still kickin @$$ this year.
    Where as we, well, were being dragged from behind the car....over the bridge....to the forest.....through the woods....down to the creek....where we are to be shot.... and left for the birds....

    Yeah I have no sense of humor. And you'd think we'd have more rest later but you fail to logically reason that WE HAVE MORE B2B TOTAL than most teams, meaning even if we play more in one month, it still does not even out because we have more overall, not just in one month. We are not saying that we play more games than any team, just more b2b's.

    Posted By blazersforlife234 on 12/03/2010 12:02 PM
    Lakers won the Finals, so therefore, you can't really complain that they have the fewest back-to-backs, because if you look at back-to-backs as a bad thing, then they've technically earned the right to have the least amount of them

    Yeah nice try, it seems I am not the only one to NOT get your humor since no one else noticed it. You were technically trying to describe why they have fewer b2b's and it looks more like you are now backpedaling because someone else agrees with me. But still, if this is your humor I'd say you have the same exciting personality and prolific sense of humor as Al Gore. Or Ben Stein.

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
