I used to think that Josh Howard would be the perfect small forward for what we've got going on here. He can score, defend, shoot, and rebound. Furthermore, with Dallas in a bit of dire straights with their window closing, I was hopeful one of the possible trades this summer or next might involve him.
All that is gone now with his recent interview admitting that he smokes pot in the offseason. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=3368139
Pot smoking aside, what a terrible move to make these comments before a playoff game in which his team is down 0-2. He put himself ahead of his team. Futhermore, he now risks future suspension and/or legal problems as the league will surely pay more attention to his offseason activities. Suffice it to say, thankfully Kevin Pritchard is not in the business of stocking our team with idiots anymore, and I will turn my attention elsewhere as I try to guess which players the Blazers will try to acquire in the next couple years.
