Rip City had so much hope and promise to look to as the 2011-12 season began. Yet now in the last month of the regular season, the organization finds itself on the brink of being completely torn. Rumors swirling of Paul Allen putting the team up for sale. Felton insisting his naysayers meet him outside of his Pearl District home. Nate, the man who recovered this franchise, is brought to tears and forced to resign. Where do you go from here?
Now that is a team that would make a splash in the headlines and could make one heck of a playoff run. Powered by two of the most underrated players in the game, Aldridge and D. Williams, even The Bulls defense will have a hard time keeping up. The bench squad alone, if healthy, could take most playoff contenders on any given night. Elliot Williams, Harrison Barnes, Omer Asik and J.J. Hickson would bring a ludicrous amount of energy off the bench. All this youth is perfect for D’Antoni’s fast paced system. Paul Allen if you are out there, please bring this amazing fan base the chance it deserves at bringing home a second title to Rip City.
This is my favorite blog among the entries so far (excepting my own of course!! lol). I appreciate how you broke down each player and noted why they would/wouldn't be the best fit. Though I don't necessarily agree with all the pieces of your roster or your coach, the argument you've made is very logical and done so convincingly. That roster is pretty decent too, and the front court is very good. And yes, I think we are all on the same page about needing another star to compliment the talented core the team already has. Great read!
Thanks EA! There's so many possibilities of what could happen this summer I could go on and on. It'll be one exciting off season though, and hopefully in our favor!
Jeez, if the Blazers blow this off-season...what an absolute embarrassment. They HAVE to go hard for the best two players available, in any way they can, without giving up the core. Any good/promising players already here that they can keep (like JJ, Elliot, Nolan, etc.) will be gravy. Perhaps the most potentially exciting off-season since they got the #1 pick in 2007
