Anyhow, unless someone has a Tardis (or any other time machine), we can only speculate as to the level of appreciation that should be given out at this time. So it is probably appropriate that we dole out a moderate amount of thank yous for your future not-service. You see, if we were overly appreciative, you might get swollen heads and think that you could be the future coming of the past Manu Ginobili (just Google him). That might also be tragic for us Blazers Edgers to think of losing a player of that magnitude. We tend to over think these things and mass depression would ensue (especially where second round picks are concerned). Likewise, we don't want to be under appreciative as that would be considered small on our part and could lead to issues of low self-esteem on your part.
Anyhow, best of luck to you. If we happen to win a championship in the next several years, you should probably pat yourselves on the back and take at least a small amount of credit for our success. Who knows, we may even give you another appreciation thread down the road; one for each of you.
