    like he did with Andre Miller.   Then the coach would tell Rodriguez to play a different style and would pull him from the game on any turnover.  His confidence was destroyed.  Rudy Fernandez is a great player with a great basketball IQ but is never let to get his game going.  Just when it seems he is on a roll, Mcmillan puts back in Roy.  The Blazers were 2-1 without Roy and have now lost 5 straight with him.  His style is so boring to every other player on the team that their enthusiasm dissipates.  Since we can't trade Roy, lets get a running coach that also is good at half court, but RUN first.  We have the athletes.  Then you tell Roy, you either play this style or sit on the bench.  I have been sick of watching his game for 3 years now.  He just wants to be the man and the hell with the rest of the team.  He complained when Oden was getting the ball down low.   Our team is like a military that has a bunch of weapons but a military designed around one weapon.  That weapon has failed.  Perhaps a military should have multiple weapons that can attack from all angles.  McMillan must go!  Roy needs to change or sit on the bench.

    It has been obvious for years that while the team has acquired very good players, the coach only developed his beloved Brandon Roy.  McMillan is a talent killer.  Roy's unwillingness to change his style adds to it.  Remember Sergio Rodriguez?  His first year he would play maybe 12 minutes but get 8 assists to other players other than Roy.  He saw the whole court.  Roy complained, much like he did with Andre Miller.   Then the coach would tell Rodriguez to play a different style and would pull him from the game on any turnover.  His confidence was destroyed.  Rudy Fernandez is a great player with a great basketball IQ but is never let to get his game going.  Just when it seems he is on a roll, Mcmillan puts back in Roy.  The Blazers were 2-1 without Roy and have now lost 5 straight with him.  His style is so boring to every other player on the team that their enthusiasm dissipates.  Since we can't trade Roy, lets get a running coach that also is good at half court, but RUN first.  We have the athletes.  Then you tell Roy, you either play this style or sit on the bench.  I have been sick of watching his game for 3 years now.  He just wants to be the man and the hell with the rest of the team.  He complained when Oden was getting the ball down low.   Our team is like a military that has a bunch of weapons but a military designed around one weapon.  That weapon has failed.  Perhaps a military should

    hmm thats an interesting way of putting it.
    i mean who would ever think the Golden Boy to be a problem, or wait, is that Wesley, oh gosh, so many players, so little wins.......
    i feel as if everyone should just give a little more, a little more here, and a little more there, generousity, unselfishness, thats what this team needs.
    everyone complains, no one plays, and if, big if, IF they read the information on this website, well, they probably wouldnt be too happy with some of the things "fans" say about them
    I am a fan of The Blazers ♂, the £-Train, and of course, The ¤ King. ™

    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...

    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...
