Eric Maynor Appreciation Thread


You were not Ronnie Price and certainly an upgrade over Nolan Smith and we only traded some guy named Printezis for you. What more could one ask from a player acquired for 27 games, no playoffs, and no re-signing?

Joining one of the worst bench crews in history, your sheer adequateness made you a hero. You were so stinking adequate on offense that our (greater) lack of defense when you played alongside Lillard could be overlooked. You lit up the league to the tune of 6.9 points a game in your time as a Blazer, and doubtlessly your four assists per game helped vault Luke Babbitt in to 6th Man of the Year contention.

They say one of the markers of a great leader is the ability to help replace themselves. You helped us to gracefully lose 13 in a row, giving us the 10th pick and CJ McCollum, rendering yourself expendable. We are now free to use our room exception on someone else.

In a league full of demanding stars, super athletes, knock down three-point shooters, and Nolan Smith and Joel Freeland players so terrible you wonder how they are in the NBA, we can not overlook the Eric Maynors of the world. Without you, terrible players would be average and stars would get out of control.

We will never forget you. Good luck in Washington.
