PAUL ALLEN: BUY THE STORM!!

Just now, in listening to Rudy's interview on Mike Barrett's Courtside radio show, I was reminded that Rudy's sister plays for the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks.  Alarm bells went off in my head. 

Remember, in an interview last week (sorry: I still don't know how to do the link thingie), Rudy let it slip that: 1) he's concerned with living away from the coast for the first time; 2) he believes that a rainy climate is "bad for the body"; 3) he's pumped about playing in the famous Forum on opening night; 4) Kobe was very complementary to him after the Gold Medal Game. See where I’m going with this??

However, the Blazers don't need to wait helplessly for Rudy's rookie contract to expire and him to sign with the hated team to the south.  We have an owner with vision and--more importantly--megabucks.  True, even Paul Allen can't convert Portland into a sunny coastal city with an arena full of Tinseltown celebrities.  But at least he can address this WNBA factor. 

Come on, Mr. Allen: buy the Seattle Storm, move 'em to Portland, and sign Rudy's sister to the squad!  Don't let the evil Kobe lure our Rudy away!
