What a season so far. It's almost comical to see all the injuries to this team. What started out as a year of what might be has turned into a year of what next. It's good to see Nick Batuum and Rudy Fernandez back, but these guys are not what the team needs to turn it around. We are almost halfway through the season and the Portland Trail Blazers are currently in 7th place in the west. I really believe the right move is to get all the young players the most playing time you can and play out the season. If something fantastic comes along in a trade, take it. I believe the problem is too much talent on this roster. It's true the season has been killed by injuries, but Nate is still trying to find the right starting combination. When it comes to the blazers talent, they need to start thinking quality not quantity. A few decent guys for a really good guy would work well here.
As for trying to make a run at the playoffs, why? So you get matched up against the Lakers or the Nuggets and get swept in teh first round? Why not play out the string, get a lottery pick and come back next year bigger and badder than ever. Instead of the year of what might be, this year could become a year of what should be next season.
One more thing...If Brandon Roy is allowed to play in the All Star game, somebody should lose their job at One Center Court..... He is already missing games due to injuries, why not let him rest more during the all star break?
Ok, OK this has turned into a complaining rant....which is what I don't want.
Until we meet again!
