So sad, that you have decided to manipulate the system like this. Although it has not been reported I wonder if Mr. Ainge knew that the preseason would count against the ten games needed to enforce the payment of Mr. Miles contract. I wonder how many gm's new this. If that's the case then I would like to call "Dirty tricks" on you. For shame. Were you so afraid of what this recently maligned, and morally bereft team was turning into? Was the Celtic fanbase still upset about losing the 07 draft, and just had to get one back on us? Is Grizzlies management this desperate? It seems the answer to all of these questions is a resounding yes. The eastern conference has it in for the Blazers. And I for one am proud. Proud I say! Proud that a team that had the best odds of winning the 07 draft, and through pure chance ended up with number 4, which enabled them to put together a team that went on to win the big prize, was so threatened by our up and coming Blazers that they felt compelled to resort to underhanded, shady dealings behind the scenes. They were so terrified of the maelstrom building on the horizon, that they decided on the low road. You have given me new inspiration to support my team! You have revived my feelings of loathing for all others! And you have placed your heads directly in the line of fire! For shame, for shame. By choosing this route you have decidedly lessened the potential for leniancy, and pity when the Blazers come knocking. It may not be today, it may not be tomorrow, but the fate of your lowly orginizations will soon become clear, and when it does you will then understand the meaning of the words "Juggernaut", "Unstoppable" and "Incomprehensible". You had better get your kicks while you can, dear sirs, because sooner than you know, you will be reduced to drooling, mouth-breathing, lobotomy-craving, waking-nightmare having shells of your former selves! I have reached a fever pitch, but it is nothing compared with the cacophony of screams inside of your own skulls, that you have decided to pre-destine yourselves with! YOU ARE FOOLS!!!!!!!
