Dwyer: Thoughts On Portland's "Reload, Not Rebuild" Strategy

Kelly Dwyer at Ball Don't Lie sums up a bunch of the recent storylines around the Portland Trail Blazers and reflects on team president Larry Miller's "reload, not rebuild" strategy... -------------------------------------- The April 12th, season ticket date is key. The Blazers can't really be criticized for attempting to put all their eggs in one All-Star's basket because we don't know how committed the team is to attempting this sort of quick-hit rebuild. Heck, we don't even know who "they" are, because the team still has yet to hire a general manager some 10 months after it let go of former GM Rich Cho. This could all be a front, a media play in an otherwise forgettable April to keep those season ticket holders around as owner Paul Allen may or may not be listening to offers to sell the team. A team with no GM, an interim coach, a major decision to make in this June's draft, major decisions to make during July's free agency period, and a squad that was designed to tank the rest of the season but yet somehow can't stop winning every other game. Weird. Not sure if you've heard, but Portland likes it that way. -------------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
