There Is a storm rolling in and it doesn't look pretty. For the blazers, there is nothing more terrifying than the deafening sound of thunder..... The Oklahoma City Thunder! Sorry that was pretty bad, but the point stands. OKC is charging hard with no signs of slowing down and while, that shoud worry a lot of teams in the west, It concerns the Blazers even more. Not just because we passed on the force that moves this storm, but because they are stealing our identity. They now have full control of the" scary up and comers who are going to terrorize the west for the next decade" persona that we held last yr. To make matters worse they have what we lack; Swagger and mental toughness! Now it can be argued that being the underdog lends itself better to this role. infact its required. And now that we are acknowleged as a good team we can no longer hold that spot. But OKC is starting to look like an unstoppable force, and if they get a center that can play, the future of our team may not look so bright. Roys AWESOME, but Durant is a FREAK! I mean LBJ sorta freak. 6' 10' & 7' 2" wingspan with his skills? I know its only one season, but how hard would be to watch our missed pick kill us for the next decade? The Only silver lining might be that our savior from this fate may be rehabbing in Portland as we speak. Lets hope he stays healthy and shows that there is another FREAK in the west, and he's 7' 0 with a 7' 3" wingspan.
