Official "All is too quiet on the Blazers front for me, I'm already disappointed" thread

It wasn't that long ago that rumors of CP3 to Portland were rustling about. It seems like it's been weeks since we've had constant breaking news updates from J Quick on the Game telling us about this rumor or that. That kind of stuff keeps my Blazer fire lit this time of year, and I feel like since KP has been gone we've heard nothing.

* Sidenote: That tells me enough as it as (i.e., KP was feeding J Quick information).

Anyway, the point of this thread is that if I'm being honest with myself, I've given in to the fact that no major trades will happen for the Blazers this year. There will be no sign and trade for Chris Bosh, no trade for Chris Paul, no creative three team deals or any other way of us getting better. I'm afraid we'll be going in to next season with the same roster we have now. They're good, and they are alone enough to be excited about (IF HEALTHY), but the local media had me so hyped up that it was guaranteed the Blazers would make a big deal this summer that I just feel deflated. I know summer is far from over, but lets be real here, it just doesn't FEEL like anything is going to happen. To be clear, I don't think that's because KP is gone because let's be honest, he wasn't wheeling and dealing for any blockbuster trades either.

I really hope I'm wrong. I am grateful for the team we have and I know they'll compete, but this current roster is not a championship contender and I feel like our window closed before it was even opened (to paraphrase Brian "Buzzkill" Berger).
