I can't believe we (the blazers) only went 1-3 on this road trip. Not only did we a blow a great lead against the Cavs we blew another great lead against the Bucks, and in overtime! This sucks! I am so frustrated and angry right now.
Can someone out there please explain to me why the hell Blake played 42 minutes. He shot 3 for 10 (1 for 7 from behind the arch) and contributed 1 assist. 1!!!
Then Andre Miller is playing 34 minutes shooting 2 for 12. Hey at least he added 7 assists, sadly it took two overtimes to do it.
Worst of all, we have those fools playing the majority of the 4th and two overtimes. Where was Webster? He was shooting the lights out. Where was Bayless? In 18 minutes he had 9 points and shot the ball extremely well.
I don't get it.
Pritchard, please do me and every other hardcore Blazer fan out there a huge favor and get rid of Blake and Miller. I'll take anyone. Well maybe not anyone.
Surely a gm of Pritchard's skill can at least get Hinrich and Gray from the Bulls by trading trading Miller, Blake and $3 mil cash (to buy out Blake's contract). The salaries are nearly identical. The Bulls will save $4 mil this year, and $2 mil the next to help with their free agent pursuits. And Miller comes off the books a year earlier than Hinrich.
Didn't a western conference scout say the Balzers needed a "mo williams type" to play in the back court with Roy. I think Hinrich can be that player. I know he isn't playing that well at the moment, but neither was Mo Williams when the Cavs traded for him. I think coming to Portland will be great for Hinrich ( he's a quality defender that can shoot the long ball) and the trade will also allow Bayless to play more minutes... which he definitely deserves. Plus Gray will help our depleted front line.
We should've grabbed Hinrich last year. I hope we don't blow another opportunity to get him again.
KP please make a trade!!!
