    as you may be finding out, the owners and players association have come to a tentative agreement to end the lockout.

    if ratified by the respective sides, training camp and free agency would begin on december 9, and a 66-game season would begin on Christmas Day,

    There are a lot of details and work to be taken care of, but the light at the end of the tunnel has gotten brighter. i have my own feelings on the reports and interviews i've heard. i'd like to share them after hearing from some of you.
    I am a fan of my team fighting to win each and every game.

    I'm just happy there's finally a light at the end of the tunnel. After I had started to fear that we wouldn't have a season this year, 66 games will be a wayyyy better time than 0.

    Mostly, I'm just happy that BOTH sides (the Owners AND the Players) finally remembered this isn't just a business, it's a sports league, and the Fans are far more important than either of their respective checkbooks.

    Back to basketball now please.

    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.

     

    Thank God they are 19 games over 500.  Mayb...

    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...
