Who could ever forget the "MAR-CUS CAM-BY!" chant last year when he played his best game as a Blazer, lifting the team to a victory.
Great blog on a truly underrated center. He works his butt off every single night and like you said, it may not show up in the boxscore but he contributes so much to this team. Love the point you made about his Twitter account. He seems to love Portland and love the group of guys he's playing with. Got to love that.
Nice one Kassandra. I shudder every time I hear media pundits talking about trading Marcus away. I really liked when he indicated he might just retire if the Blazers did him like that. His game is priceless and he has had soooo much to do with LA's improvement, it's hard to even gauge. He's not young anymore, but he still manages to play at a high level, and though he can't be part of a long-term plan, any gains to be made by trading him away just don't seem worth it. He's very underrated, but I think fans here value him highly. I seriously cannot wait for the deadline to pass, so I can breath a huge sigh of relief (I hope!)Go Blazers! Kill the Bugs!
thanks guys! EowynAmarie, i thought the retiring comment was great. people complain about his age, but a guy who averages 11 rebounds a game cannot truly be considered nba-old! i, too, hope to be able to breathe easier after the all-star break.
Good stuff Kassandra. I remember when he was an opponent back in the day, he use to give me fits. He would get his hands on everything. He knows exactly where the ball is coming off the rim. If he can't get the rebound he taps it towards center court. If you have noticed the rest of the Blazer bigs are doing the same thing now. I even saw Rudy do it the other night. I'm really glad he is coming back next week, because we have struggled on rebounds during long stretches during games lately.
Hey Kasey! I remember when the Clippers got Camby and everyone was excited then. I'm glad he's doing so well with the Blazers.
