What the Blazers used to do is retool.
What do think was exciting about the last two years? Nic Batums mega contract? Have you been a fan for as long as I have? You must be really excited about this years lotto pick. I just don't see this draft being very productive. This team is rudderless. Without major acquisitions this team won't make the playoffs and it would take 5 lotteries to rebuild.
I don't read canzano. I am not in that market. or Kerry eggers. Did that new paper ever challenge the Oregonian?
No i'm an admitted Sonics fanatic, and have always have hated the Blazers.
In this day and age, Portland is not going to land top FA's, its just not going to happen unless you got a superstar, even then it would be tough, remember Bosh saying he didn't want join LeBron in Cleveland, and they both went to Miami? Portland isn't even Cleveland.
They were on their way until the wheels fell off. How was Allen suppose to know that Roy's knees were gonna be done 5 years into his career? or that Greg Oden was going to have knee's made out of tissue paper by the age of 22 and barely ever play a game?
No one could've seen these things happen.
IMO Portland isnt that far off, you got a budding young star in Damian Lillard, and the only Blazer I've ever rooted for in LaMarcus Aldridge. You add another core piece to this team this offseason, you guys are back in the playoffs IMO, even with that weak ass bench.
