Initial word last night was that the Blazers would practice today at noon. Minutes ago, the text rolled in: "today has been changed to a maintenance day, with no media access."
After last night, I wouldn't want to speak to reporters today either. And with the trip home plus a game tomorrow, a full practice seemed dubious from the start.
So, instead of a practice report here's a treat for weekend readers: KP2, Dave and I wrote brief articles about the Blazers in this month's Sports Northwest magazine, which you can read online or pick up locally. I just got my copy in the mail; Brandon Roy is the coverboy and it's pretty slick.
KP2 talks pace, Dave talks rebounding, I talk locker room dynamics.
For the record, Dave did not select the image that runs next to his column.
