Blazers Appreciation Thread

I can't be upset at all with this season. Honestly, I'm not even upset about losing this one, or this series.

 Our guys worked their butts off through the most adversity that any of us have ever witnessed. We welcomed new guys onto the team, and that wasn’t always a smooth transition. We never had a set rotation this year that could grow together and establish the kind of kinship and trust that other teams are so fortunate to have. Our team was like a group of mercenaries, but mercenaries that somewhere along the way stopped doing it just for the money. Somewhere along the way, these guys started caring. Caring about themselves, their teammates, and the honor and heritage of the Portland Trailblazers. In that sense the team did grow, and we were lucky to see that. My hope is that this is the down season that makes us appreciate even more when we go off on a deep run for the next ten years. This year will make a championship feel that much better. So for now, I’m going to withhold my criticism and just sit back and feel the love and the awe for a team that although came up short in the end, showed me more heart and more love than any team since it was led by men with the names Drexler, Kersey, Porter, Duckworth, and Williams. Get yourselves better boys, we’ll be here in the fall, waiting anxiously…

Show them your love Portland! (Not a criticism thread, please put that somewhere else) ; )
