I never understand this guy, he seems to always just miss "it". In this column he states that
"Complicating matters for the Blazers, who still have some holes in their defense and perimeter shooting,..."
Ok maybe we can say the defense isn't great yet, (although the last 2 months of the season it has been great, allowing the team to finish 13th out of 30 with a defensive rating of 107.8) the blazers have been amoung the top perimeter shooting teams all season! It is almost as if Mr. Stein watch a Blazer game in October and didn't see another game.
Maybe I am too sensitive, but his stuff just gets to me, because there is always something that is so off base it just makes the whole piece garbage to read, even if the rest of the column is decent, (which this mostly is).
