The Youth Card (Blazers' age)

I'm sure everybody and their mothers know that our team isnt labeled the "Baby Blazers" or any other kind of condescending name, like the Bulls were a couple of years ago. I think its because the league takes us more seriously than they did take chicago at that time... Mostly, its teams with losing-to-mediocre records that pull out this "youth card" and start making excuses for their lack of success, but yet I see BEdgers and Blazer fans doing this anytime somebody critisizes the team.

I believe that since we are in the playoff run, in contention for the NW Division Title and have a pretty good record in the WC, us fans should not be making any age-related excuses for the team anymore, regardless of how many rookies and early 20 year olds we have on the team.
