Calkins: Looking Back At Blazers Coach Nate McMillan

Matt Calkins of The Columbian with a look back at Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan. ------------------------------- Can you think of an NBA coach who has been as tormented as Nate McMillan over the past five years? How about one expected to do so much with so little? McMillan has essentially been the Odysseus of basketball, running into a new roadblock whenever he thought he had a clear path home, and yet ... he kept his teams on course. He lost Oden in December of 2009 and still guided Portland to 50 wins. He lost a never-the-same Roy for 33 games last year, had a front-court shallower than Snookie, and still pulled out 48 victories. ------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
