    We talk bout this current squad being too deep, but the 99 team was 12 deep. I loved the bench with Jimmy Jackson, Walt Williams, Greg Anthony, and Stacey Augmon. The 80 team was in rebuilding mode and wouldn't stand a chance. Without Bill and Maurice, Rasta Monsta and Sheed would just dominate the paint. Let's not forget about JR Rider either. Off-court issues aside, he was the emotion of the team and always made the big shot for us that year. I believe our leading scorer was JR at only 13 a night..crazy.

    The 99 team really got Blazer Mania back again. It was so nice to finally get out of the 1st round. Their length, depth, and athleticism would be too much for the 80 team. Anyone else love it when JR would pull back his jersey to show his "heart"? Dude was crazy but I loved him for that one season..needless to say it was a smart trade to get Smitty from ATL.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    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...
