Are you still fully engaged with the 2018-19 Portland Trail Blazers?
I am - but to be fair I have to be. I watch every game, analyze the data, and formulate opinions. But this is a team that yet again has shown itself to be similar to the previous year’s model. A few new bells and whistles, but ultimately not really a redesign in any meaningful way.
It remains to be seen if their win over the Toronto Raptors will kick-start their motor again but, as it stands now, the Blazers have fallen off in a big way after their hot start. What I’m curious about is how their performance affects you as a fan. Are you a die-hard, watch every minute of every game fan? Or have you seen enough over the last two months that you’re able to take a step back? Maybe you remember you’ve got that home project to work on in the evenings. Maybe you turn the TV off and spend a little more time with the kids.
Both contingents of fans are out there, but I’m curious where you stand. I take calls nightly during The Last Quarter (102.9/750 The Game after the final buzzer of every Blazers game), and I hear from people that they are starting to tune out on this team because, as stated above, they feel like they were sold a product as something that’s brand new, but it’s really the same old thing. And they’re fed up with it happening again and again.
But callers to a sports radio show immediately after the home team’s loss aren’t going to be the most accurate indicator of what’s actually going on. Emotions are running high and people feel frustrated in the moment. So with the Blazers looking not much different than the last several years, I put it out to you:
