    anyone look at the still photos on's front page of blake griffins dunks? I think it's great how every still photo shows the moment the offensive foul occurs. Yet refs are allowed to let the cheating continue for the sake of jersey sales and Kia money. I'm pretty sure if lamarcus got away with hooking with the elbow and using his left arm to elevate off a player he would posterize the whole NBA too.

    heck, i bet pryzbilla would be an offensive threat if he could just push the defender out of the way before going up for the jam.

    No kidding dude. It's so blatantly obvious that Blake wins through favorable officiating. It's not like he's the first player to do it, there are several other teams who's stars CONSISTENTLY get preferential treatment. But he just makes it so obvious :( hopefully the good that comes out of this is by Blake making the biased officials so obvious, they will have to finally take a closer look at modernizing the NBA's reffing policies. (There are several easy fixes that other sports have recently incorporated that would COMPLETELY solve this problem, but it would mean less money for Stern and his favorite pieces).

    Definitely a fan of Cousins after reading what he said about Griffin and the officials. If only more players would stick their neck out and say something.
    I am a fan of BLAZER BASKETBALL. Not drafts, not business, not trades, not David Stern. Just BLAZER BASKETBALL.

    nice find, i use to hate cousins but i like that. funny just started a poll asking if his dunks are fouls and it's at like 69% yes when i voted. maybe there is still hope for this sport, im glad the fans haven't sold out as much as the NBA tries to get them to. If I want to watch a bunch of fake drama i'll go sit next to joel at a WWE event. I watch basketball cause i love the sport not cause some big ugly dufus got a kia contract.

    i think refs need to have a peer review from coaching staff after the year. scott foster has blown so many calls this year surely he'd be fired.

    i also think it's funny how traveling and swapping pivot foots was a point of emphasis early this year and i've watched a million travels go uncalled, including blazers who change pivot foots. especially nic before he throws one of his lazy passes

    the worst part about the officiating this year though is they are literally controlling momentum by picking and choosing a team to give calls to for a stretch of time.

    I will never lobby for the Lakers to get calls. You shouldn't either if you're a Blazers fan.
    I am a fan of multiple All-Stars on the Blazers roster this season!

    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...
