JASON QUICK IS A LAKER AGENT!!!!!

OK, I don't really think Quick is the Devil. In fact, his Rip City Revival series has been like a canteen of water to a man in the desert, sustaining me thru the Blazer dog days.  But I've been uneasy from Day One (i.e., the Roy chapters) that this series--fascinating as it might be to us fans--has the potential to disrupt the Blazers' rare chemistry.  Now, after reading the first Trout chapter, I'm alarmed.

You think I'm paranoid?  Maybe.  But let me share a quick story (no pun intended).  I once was a member of a popular musical group in the Bay Area.  All was harmonious until the day the bandleader gave an interview to a local paper.  In that inteview, he said, "This band is a ship of fools, but the captain knows what he's doing."  Viola, like waving a magic wand, a successful and harmonious unit fractured at the seams.

No, Roy, Oden, Blake, or Outlaw haven't been quoted saying anything that inflamatory.  In fact, they've just been saying the type of stuff you'd expect them to say in confidence to their friends & family.  But emphasize "IN CONFIDENCE."  Team harmony is a fragile thing, and I think this Rip City Revival series may be a little TOO "up close & personal."  It certainly threatens to stir the pot.  It may even have the potential to be a Rip City Destroyer.

But that's just my take.  What do YOU think?
