I really have to wonder about Jason Quick.
While he was the Blazers beat reporter, the team went from the most promise of any NBA team to the most devastating injuries of any NBA team (outside the Bulls).
After the Blazers ended last season on a 13-game losing streak, Quick ceremoniously left the Blazers to cover the Ducks.
With Quick gone, the Blazers opened this season like one of the NBA's elite. Meanwhile, the Ducks started strong, then fizzled.
What the Blazers need most is for Quick to start covering the Thunder.
