    Just over the past month I'm starting to doubt Roy and the direction the organization is going. Our franchise player, is struggling to consistently score where we need him, Nate continues to play slow paced basketball, Greg Oden out once again, i daresay the only bright spark is LA and Batum. What do we as fans think can be done?

    Realistically i don't think we can compete at the highest level with what we have now. Everyone was waiting for our big three to come together but it seems like its gonna look like the T-Mac/Yao scenario where they never come together healthy.

    With  Roy struggling, Oden never going to be the same athletic specimen we once hoped, and LA a second option as best I'm really struggling to see the Blazers making the playoffs in the West where the young teams are getting better and the established seem to be holding their own.

    Maybe its just the losing streaks, or maybe its the fact that we're losing to teams we should be beating, but i hope Rich Cho either makes some big moves or we start again
    I am a fan of seeing an uptempo Blazers squad!

    I still believe in a healthy Roy. But my fear is whether or not he can get and stay healthy.

    since there are.....two....of these.....
     YOu have to understand, you cant expect this guy to continue carrying this team to victory with the horrible situations they have forced him into.
    This team is responsible for Broys knee, for the most part that is, last season, an 8 day recovery from a torn ACL?
    Yea maybe from the 6 million dollar man, or someone like John Cena who drinks steroids in their water, but not 
    Its not that hard to figure out why this team is losing games, their players in which they had invested all their hopes and faith in, have failed to shine as bright as hoped.
    The mistake to think that Oden would come back this time healthy, the mistake of last playoff forcing Broy to come back and participate in the defeat form PHX, which has led to the loss of both meniscus in his knees.

    So now all of the responsibility has fallen onto players who arnt typically the "leaders" of this team. Therefore when you add the the normal season tasks and roles and pile leadership responsibilities  on top, you cant expect them to get it right away.
    I mean after they sent jeff away im sure some of the players felt as if they messed up once an got hurt, that would be it, Cho would deep six 'em.

    And i feel as if some of you forget, the Blazers are not the only team in the league, just because they beat a team like the clippers last year, does not set their win this year in stone. Coming out with a mentality that this game is going to be easy, and we will blow by them is great, except as soon as you make a mistake things can turn unexpectedly for the worse, and as we have seen, our guys cannot pull themselves out of the holes they create in games.
    Players are not working on the same page, the chemistry seems to seep away day by day, and with morale killers like "no meniscus" well how can one expect anything to get better.

    You have got Andre Miller running around like a some hostile lunatic, Broy making comments about such, then you have old retried players making comments about that, like WHAT IS UP WITH THE EGO's IN PORTLAND???????
    Yall should never come down to LA, get worked out.
    I mean it just seems as if this teams players are not 100% focused on basketball, Dre obviously is concerned with his personal image, Broy with the teams play, McMillian's hair is falling out continuously, i mean what is going on? 
    Nothing is going on.
    Everything is going on.

    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...
