    The news is that the season is cancelled, but why? If the two sides come to an agreement with any time left in the regular season, would they not play? Even twenty-five regular season games with a best of six-teen double elimination tourney  to decide a lockout season, would appease the fans a little. Come on guys, both sides need to compromise 50/50 with a new salary system to be put in within four years so current and new contracts will expire on the same day in four years, beginning with a realistic pay scale for max pay players, minus a signing bonus, so if you say each team gets four top slots, three second tier, four third tier, and three fourth tier. the pay would be:
    1st tier = 9 million a year
    2nd tier = 6 million a year
    3rd tier = 3 million a year
    fourth tier = 1 million a year

    This will make a hard cap of 69 million a year and bonus levels should be limited as well to under 3 million for draftees and 10 million to free agents and undrafted walk-on players.

    This scenario would be possible if top players are not to greedy, although I see their talents this is still a team game. {Not Lebron, Kobe, D-Wade, Howard or anybody can win five on one.}
    Possible, yes..... Probable, No
    Maybe in a perfect world with every team having 16 players and the regular season lasting 8-1/2 months, then 2 months of playoffs, then the draft in 2 weeks, then 2 weeks vacation, finally a 2 week preseason camp, then back to the season............ AAAHHHHH  A PERFECT WORLD !!

    When guys start taking paycuts to go play on contending teams, that's when this current NBA system really started to fall apart. That's also what destroyed the 1994 MLB season, robbing the Blue Jays of their 3rd straight championship. Doh!
    I am a fan of multiple All-Stars on the Blazers roster this season!

    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...
