Obvious contract frustration
Just watched LMA and Pendergraph's live chat on the blazers official site -- pretty cool. It was the first time I'd heard Pendergraph speak really -- he's funny, definitely a good personality to add to the team.
One of the first questions LMA was asked was about his contract. He answered it totally honestly, by his own admission, and said something to the effect of, "... I thought I showed the team some things last year, proved some things..." and definitely seemed frustrated to have not made a deal yet.
Personally, I would like to see him able to focus on his GAME, rather than the frustration of being in contract negotiations.
