Wheels: A legend in the making?

Everyone is justifiably giddy over the recent homestand! Here's a little semi-related sidetrack.

I am constantly impressed with the work of Brian Wheeler as official radio play-by-play guy. He's got the voice. He's got the passion and he has an unabashed homerism. He has his own unique style with his "BOOM-Shaka-Lakas" and "Mystified, Mortified and Mummified" when he feels the game is in hand. And now, with the franchise on the upward track, he sometimes delves into a little light-hearted ridicule of opposing players and coaches, re: his recent imitation of Avery Johnson's high pitched voice and references to Sheed's tendency to under-achieve while at Portland. One gets the sense he's just another fan like us with his undignified excitement during games. And, he's a respectable interviewer, unafraid to ask the tough questions.

There will never be another Schonz. He was the seventh man of those early Blazers. In that same way I think Wheels will make a name for himself as this version of the Trailblazers eventually makes their way to the top.
