No more Mr. Nice guy

Time for Gerald Wallace to lead the team, as the new guy late last season, he was perhaps too respectful of existing players roles, but no more Mr. Nice Guy, the whole team needs to feed off his energy, with fewer stretches where they settle for going through the motions, instead of committing to crushing the opposing teams will for 48 minutes.

If Coach McMillan lets the horses get out and run, Portland should cause opposing teams to re-stock  their medicine cabinets, before and after every Blazer game, and without any big trades.

If a no brainer deal comes along, that's business, so be it. But last years team can come back with health and  vengeance, and tear things up for the full 48, not many teams have the mindset or heart to do it.

Crash is gonna rub off on Nicolas, LA, Andre, and Brandon, and it's gonna be a season to remember.
