Rudy! Rudy! Rudy! Dunk Contest Time for Fernandez.

Only positive thoughts after last night's embarrassment in Charlotte right?

"Your" Rudy Fernandez won the popular vote out of 3 rookies to compete in the 2008-09 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest!  Woohoo!  Thanks to Jason Quick for the quick release of this info (pun intended?):
Fernandez will compete against reigning dunk champion Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic, as well as New York's Nate Robinson and Memphis forward Rudy Gay.

Fernandez initially said he would like to bring teammate and countryman Sergio Rodriguez to the event to throw passes, but Rodriguez at the time said he would decline in favor of vacationing. However, teammate Brandon Roy - who should be a shoo-in for the All-Star reserves - said if he is selected to the team he would assist Fernandez in the competition.
"Eee's surprise!"  - Rudy's preview if he were to get in.  Let's hope he comes out with some better dunks than these.

And if Brandon Roy isn't voted in as a reserve to join Rudy, we're sending out emails to the rest of the league threatening legal action against them.  Or maybe KP has already drafted one?  (Oh!)

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
