    Tom, each team plays 82 games. If you're under the age of 14 I understand that you're not capable of understanding this but I'll give it a try anyways:

    Each team plays exactly the same number of regular season games.
    So, therefore, if we play more back to backs than anyone, we have more rest at other times, for example, January. We have more rest than other teams
    You dont get anything haha

    OK obviously you must be at the age of 15 so I see why you are not getting what I am saying. Maybe if I use simple math for you you can follow along. Let's say there is only five games in the season. And we have 2 back to backs and every one else has one. That means that we are going to be at a disadvantage for 2 games as opposed to everyone else being at a disadvantage once. IT DOESN'T MATTER THAT WE PLAY THE SAME AMOUNT OF GAMES! You are absolutely missing the point and are arguing that I don't understand that we play the same amount of games!! I think it is obvious to everyone, except your new equally oblivious friend, who it is that does not get anything.

    Also your theory on us playing more games in a row means we get more days off is not an advantage if you think about it. We actually get 4 days off in a row once this month... which only helps for the game immediately following! One game. Not every game we play. Also if you'd learn to read a little before opening your mouth you would see that next month we do not get any advantage in our schedule. We still have THREE b2b's and only one or two days off in a row all month until Feb. when again it is only one game that benefits from the rest. Where is this advantage you're talking about?

    Try using your brain for once.

    Tom, again, you lash out at me and keep being rude. Listen to this.....

    In January, we probably play less back-to-backs than anyone and have more rest than other teams.  Or in February.  We also have more home games than other teams in those dates.  Is that a disadvantage?

    OK hypocrite, I merely turned the insults you used against me around on you and you are calling me rude?!?! ha ha ha Don't dish it out if you can't take it.

    Also we do not play less b2b than anyone in January. I could tell you that just by using simple math without even looking at the schedule.
    WE PLAY MORE BACK TO BACKS OVER ALL!!! Just because we play 5 in one month doesn't mean anything. We still play more overall. So we play 5 this month and 3 next month. The Lakers play 3 this month and 3 next month. Where is the advantage? We play 21 b2b total meaning over the course of the season it averages out to 4.2 b2b's per month. While the Lakers have 15 b2b total which averages out to 3 per month. OK Archimedes? Besides a month by month break down is irrelevant. We have 6 more games than the Lakers and a bunch of other teams, that are on the second night of a back to back. That's what matters. Especially since the last few years one or two games can be the difference between making the playoffs or not in the Western Conference.

    Tom you're the one crying! you dont get my logic. I'LL USE CAPS LIKE YOU DO TO PROVE MY POINT HAHA... OK SO SINCE WE PLAY MORE BACK TO BACKS THAN ANYONE IN THE LEAGUE... WE HAVE MORE REST BETWEEN GAMES THAN OTHER TEAMS SO LOOK AT THE BRIGHT SIDE THATS ALL IM SAYING...
    If you're smart you'll understand
    In a 6 month season (approximate)... we play what? 21 back to backs? and another team plays 13 back to backs. ok follow me... each team plays exactly 82 regular season games... still follow me big boy? OK SINCE WE HAVE MORE BACK TO BACKS, WITHIN THE SIX MONTHS, WE HAVE LONGER DAYS OF REST THAN OTHER TEAMS AT CERTAIN TIMES... ok period. Its not that hard to understand. Just be an optimist for once geez

    Man you are slow. I get your logic. I just explained why that doesn't matter, but regardless, I pointed out the fact that we do NOT get more rest in between games. We may get one game every 2 months where we have 3 or more days off before, but so does every team. Then, if you factor in when teams don't play for a while and everyone knows they'll be rusty, that's even worse. But regardless I'm done arguing with you. You are either hell bent on disagreeing with me or sound logic and either way you are a waste of time. DOES MY USE OF CAPS OFFEND YOU? GOOD. I SHALL TALK LIKE THIS TO YOU FROM NOW ON. P.S. IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME.

    Tom, Tay and I are not friends. We've never met and never really talked. We just know real basketball and know that you are wrong on this one. More back to backs means more rest at other times. Period. We can agree to disagree I guess, just wish it could be done in a friendlier manner.  I'm not the one who called you "ridiculous" in the first place or made it seem like you didn't know what you were talking about. You came after me. And no you don't offend me with your caps, you offend me with your lack of intelligence and respect for others.
    peace

    Well Mr Sensitive, I said that the Lakers getting an easier schedule because they won last year is ridiculous, I never called you ridiculous. Learn to read. However after I asked you to clarify yourself for your incoherent comments and you show your intelligence and maturity by answering "Tom you complain too much". That was basically a bail out because you had nothing at all to back what you said. So you immediately resort to insults. Those are also fightin words. So yeah I said some things after that. Oh but when Kassandra comes around and agrees with me two weeks later, all of a sudden you were joking.

    And keep on talking about your real basketball knowledge. You inexplicably seem just as eager as Tay to prove you have it. Without being provoked for such information you also arrogantly offered a self proclamation that you have way more basketball knowledge than me, without offering any evidence whatsoever. And you ask if I have ever played. I answered yes, then I asked you. You STILL haven't answered.  But it doesn't matter. All these things you said are meant to troll and piss me off. What do you expect? You want me to be civil? Then act civil and don't troll or whine and complain if I get upset at you for trolling me, hypocrite. And I already agreed to disagree in my last comment.
    Posted By blazersforlife234 on 12/03/2010 3:20 PM
    Ok Tom, exactly. THEN WHY ARE PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT OUR SCHEDULE?
    Also it is funny how you are ripping me for using caps, when you were the first one to do so! And you did it multiple times. Plus why are you even asking (blaming) me what other people are doing?? You are one delusional hypocrite my friend, one who is trying to weasel out of all the drama you started and pin it on me. You and Tay were meant for each other. Both of you hypocrites run around and troll people and scream and yell that you have more basketball knowledge than anyone. GOOD FOR YOU!

    Tom, again that was a joke about the caps. And I am not a troll, a whiner, or trying to fight with you. Get over yourself please.  Do you realize that you are the only one I am arguing with... because you come at me disrespectfully, and that's one thing I don't accept.  Seriously Tom, grow up. Like I said, if you're 15 years old or younger then I disregard this whole conversation, because obviously you're age and intelligence have been shown in this forum.  But if you are older, this is just sad.  I think you get my point though about the schedule, the only reason we are actually talking here, and that's why you won't talk about that.  All you do is insult me and call me names, but won't even acknowledge my argument. Ok, I'm right and we both know it.
    Peace Tom.

    No your point about the schedule is wrong, and I have proved it. I can not prove it ANYMORE! Like I said earlier I'm done arguing it since you can not see any reason or logic and then you yourself said you wanted to agree to disagree. But the very next comment you choose to jump right back into the same stupid argument. Then you are whining and complaining that I am calling you names, all the while you are calling me immature, unintelligent and telling me no one likes me. Fine, I'm alright with no one liking me but you started with the insults and now you are acting like it's ok for you to do it but wrong for me. Also you said 14 or younger, I said you were 15. You can't even keep your own facts straight. Oh but I suppose that was a joke as well. You need to just shut up now. This argument is over, troll.

    thought i'd add that as of friday, the blazers 25 road games were the most of any team in the. obviously, the home games will balance out, but i thought that interesting.

    the blazers defintely have it rough  it makes no sense is right to give the lakers less back to backs. i agree with tom give everyone the same amt of back to backs.  it seems like our schedule for the blazers is more insane this year.  not sure if injuries are the result of this or just plain bad luck.

    Thanks Teresa. I have been wondering the same thing, especially with Brandon. Can't help but think that if our schedule wasn't so crazy with back to backs so close together, maybe Brandon's knees would be a little better.

    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...
