So seriously... Are we getting a new coaching staff, talent scouts, and shooting coach for Nate, or what?


I mean seriously.  I think after the Blazer post season was over, I checked -out mentally and dove into the new Timbers season.  Then one Timbers game, after their best player score his first goal of the year at home, he ran all the way over to the sidelines- very far away, ignored all the other players, and hugged a surprised head coach John Spencer.  Would a Blazer player ever do that I don't know.  I know there's a wall between Nate and his players and I know psychologically its not good.  If we have Nate for two more years then we need new talent scouts...  A Johnson, Babbit, Fernandez, Mills, even Batum who barely made a difference offensively, REALLY?  This is our squad outside the big three?  I know the city of Portland will never attract the best of the best of coaching staff, but at least we have to address it.  How will we replace Monty Williams?  I think Monty was the link between Nate and the players.  Our two other assistants, did you notice they bounced around the league alot?  For what reason?  Our shooting?  Horrendous.  On the Spurs, everybody shoots well- coincidence?

Lastly, look what happened to the Hawks. Mike Woodson, their old coach was a carbon copy of Nate's style.  They fired him and now look at the team.  Their new coach is young and unproven.  What do you think Blazer nation??? If we can't fire, Nate, give him the pieces to make up for his deficiencies.
