Blazersedge VideoCast #9

The new and somewhat-improved Blazersedge VideoCast is ready for your perusal. In this edition we sweep through a bevy of point-guard related inquiries, answer a critical question about the upcoming lottery, and in violation of almost every media code of ethics Dave ends up revealing one of his key sources. Oops.

P.S. Some folks have commented that they couldn't get a clear read on the comments of our source. For those, a transcript of the discussion follows after the jump. If you get stuck in that section, read along. I recommend only using it if you need it though. It's probably better watched than read.

Transcript of Source Material

Dave: Are you there, God? It's me, Dave.

The Big Guy: OMM! When will you sports bloggers quit? What do you want to know about Tebow this time?

D: No, no, no. It's nothing like that. I just wanted to know if the Blazers really could rebuild in just one summer.

TBG: Ha! No! Do you watch the league at all? I've seen miracles, but sheesh!

D: You sure? Because it really seems like they're intent on trying...

TBG: Dude, who told you Raymond Felton was a bad idea?

D: Well, you did.

TBG: And who told you to stay away from Jamal Crawford?

D: You did.

TBG: And who told you to take Greg Oden over Kevin Durant?

D: You did! And hey, about that...

TBG: Hey! Hey! Hey! Nobody could have predicted how things would turn out! It was the right move! Besides, suffering is good for the soul.

D: Well, hey...couldn't Thunder fans suffer for a while then?

TBG: Dude, they already live in Oklahoma City...

D: Touché. Well I guess that's all I had for you then, God. Let me know if there's anything else I need to know, huh?

TBG: I'm still deciding whether to tamper with the draft again. I always try and set you up but David Stern keeps switching the envelopes.

D: That guy has so much power...

TBG: Yeah, tell me about it. Oh. Tell Luke Babbitt I'm sorry in advance as well.

D: Whoa! For what? Big trade coming?

TBG: You got it.

D: Charlotte?

TBG: Thus the apology...

D: Let me guess. Michael Jordan thinks that Babbitt is the next Larry Bird.

TBG: No, Michael Jordan thinks that Babbitt is the next Adam Morrison. He's still trying to make that work.

D: No kidding. Draft the 'Stache again, huh?

TBG: Yup. That was the worst idea since gnosticism and Jimmy Swaggart.

D: Tell me about it. Say, speaking of good ideas...why don't the Blazers just hire you as GM? I mean, you've got all that knowledge and stuff...

TBG: Naw, they wouldn't want me. Every time I have a basketball decision I just ask myself, "What would Pritchard do?"

D: Yeah, they've been there, done that I guess.

TBG: Oops! Gotta go! Amare Stoudemire just got mad and stuck his hand in a Cuisinart.

D: Oooh! Gonna heal him?

TBG: Nawww. I'm tweeting the pics out to all my followers!

D: Oh. OK! Later!

TBG: Keep your chin up, Sparky! And Go Blazers!
