Path to a Championship along the I-5 Corridor

I have an idea,



Many posters have noted how Blazers sent to Idaho to develop usually don't pan out. Consider Luke Babbit, a player drafted because of his three-point powers and his eerily-close to Blake Griffin measurements. Obviously, we intended him to be our Blake-off-the-bench with a three point shot. Unfortunately, he wasn't getting the minutes in Portland so we shipped him out to Boise.



Yet, when Babbit came back from Boise, he hardly improved at all. This inability-to-achieve-potential haunts this franchise and I think everyone will agree that its due to the Boise night life. NBA players love shooting ranges, snowball fights, and tent camping and frankly, this team will never win a championship unless we move the Idaho stampede to a new location.


The ideal location is right under our noses; or, more properly speaking, right north of our noses. A few hours north of Portland is a city called Seattle that has a basketball stadium but no professional team. We can move the Stampede into Key Arena, call them the Sonics, be lauded as heroes of the north west, appropriate Sasquatch for mascot duty, and within 1-27 seasons, lift a couple of championship banners in the Wells Fargo Rose Garden Arena Presented by Sprint.



Get it done, Oshley.
