Okay, I understand that we all have bias to some degree. Some more than others, but that part comes with being a diehard fan like most of us are.
But glancing over ESPNs picks for Most Improved Player and Coach Of The Year really, uhm, how to put it as politely as I can? Pissed me off. That will do.
It's not the fact that no Blazer won any of those categories - I pretty much expected that... but not a single Blazer got a VOTE?!
RAJON FRACKING RONDO GOT 3 VOTES?! CHRIS KAMAN GOT ONE?
Where is the love for LaMarcus? Hell, where is the love for Rudy Gay? Even he only mustered to get one vote.
I love Maurice Cheeks, and I have a ton of respect for Phil Jackson... but those two got votes and Nate McMillan did not get a single one, despite the fact that Mac-10 had less to work with and was playing in a much tougher conference than Maurice.
And what's even worse while glancing over those picks, it's like a collective hive mind over there. There is barely an dissension among the staff and when there is, they pick the most outlandish choices they can come up [RAJON FRACKING RONDO!?].
What a disappointment, but why am I even getting surprised these days?
