This is a great day for the Blazers!

I know a lot of people are bummed about today's events. Some angry that Nate's gone and others very happy about it. Others are bummed because Felton's or Crawford are still here (for now). Still others don't think we got enough for Camby and Wallace. As I see it, what happened today has the potential for helping the Blazers turn the franchise around. Yes, there is still the need for a quality GM. That piece is still missing. However, I don't think the Blazers are going to get any better without getting a lot worse first. Odds are that the team that remains will end up with an even worse record by season's end. That's all good for draft positioning. It's just too bad they didn't go in the toilet at the start of the season instead of racking up 20 wins. The bottom feeders in the East's records are so bad they will obviously have a better shot at high draft picks than the Blazers do, but you never know how the ping pong balls will bounce. Without Roy and Oden, the Blazers had to sink before they could rise. Free agent signings are un-likely. The draft is the best hope. It may take a few years to get back to being a strong team, it may not. Having a new philosophy in a head coach will be good. Nate tried his hardest and was a decent seeming man, but I think he has used up all the gas in his tank with this team. It will be intriguing to see who replaces him. Yes, PA may sell the team sooner than later. That could also be a very good thing if it goes to the right owner. On the other hand, maybe PA will get a second wind and change his mind about staying through another re-build. The only folks I feel bad for are the season ticket holders that have sunk a big wad of dough into this season and who may see even worse basketball ahead.
