    This should be a boost after losing to the worst team in the NBA, the best team just did the same thing!

    Additionally Blazer faithful, I see THIS looking at the standings this morning, with a month of games in the books...


    Team                                   12/13 Payroll                                   Record

    Los Angeles Lakers                100,000,000+                                   8-10

    Portland Trailblazers               56,786,970                                    8-10

    In addition to an aging roster and likely a failing grade in chemistry, Laker management must deal with the albatross of a contract of one Pau Gasol (19 mil, and same as Howard) and the challenge of re-signing Howard following the season.  More immediately, the Lake Show faces a very difficult schedule in this month of December, having played a bulk of their games to this point at home.

    In short Blazernation, things could be considerably worse.  We don't, afterall, have a Joker sitting courtside at the Garden.

    It's nice fodder, but it doesn't make me feel better about losing to the wiz.  It doesn't excuse poor play or solve any issue with our offense or defense.  The Blazers gave away 2 games to wash and det respectively, and nothing that any other team does changes that.

    I think no matter what a team's record is, they get credit for winning a game. When we beat the lakers on opening night there was no mention of us winning but the internet was full of articles about the Lakers losing. I give the Pistons and Wizards credit for winning those games. Teams win games. We lost, so did Miami, so did the Lakers..that's my point in a nutshell. No game is a given win in pro sports. Upsets happen but when they do, credit to the underdog

    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...
