Quick rumors are misleading

By riverman Posted in: LaMarcusAldridge
If LaMarcus wanted out of Portland, we'd know. Today LaMarcus tweeted an objection to Jason Quick of the Oregonian debunking his article. Thank you LA! We all love Damian but this is LaMarcus' team first and foremost. He's the captain, the allstar and he's not going to be that in Chicago, Dallas, or wherever Quick thinks he's going. LaMarcus could give up his high contract and join the Heat for the vet min if he wants a ring. Would he? Naaaa.......not in a million years. We can offer him the most money to extend here and in 2 years when his contract is up the team should be  vastly improved. This is not Carmelo in Denver wanting out. This is not DHoward demanding a trade from Orlando. This whole rumor is a concoction that has no foundation. We drafted pretty well for the bench. Let the free agency unfold and when training camp starts, we can all join in with critique and observation. Until then we're looking at a project in process. I'm optimistic!


  1. I used to think that it was just Canzano that was a Blazer hater. Not Quick too.

  2. i don't know if Quick is a hater, but i do know his journalistic credibility leaves a lot to be desired. there are some who think he's great. i can only surmise those people have not read enough real sports journalists' writing to know that Quick is pretty much the bottom of the barrel.

  3. Somewhere in a newsroom an editor was screaming, "I know there's no news today but I need copy now! And make it juicy! I want it on my desk in an hour!" (ok boss)

  4. I don't even think it is that Mr. Quick is so poor at his job as it is his journalistic arrogance. I wonder if he assumes that if he thinks it, there must be basis in proof. A deadly combination of egotism and greed leads to quantum leaps of reasoning as he often displays in his "writings".
