I Like Kelly Dwyer who Likes Brandon Roy

Most Improved Player is?  Kelly Dwyer thinks that Brandon Roy is this year's MIP.  That's an interesting thing to type as we've always known Roy was a great player, but seeing the stats laid out in front of you makes Kelly's argument extremely valid.
Brandon Roy, a nice player, jumping to superstar-level 24.1 PER? That's a bigger jump. And that's not even taking into account his improved defense (he shuts down small forwards this year compared to last, while doing solid work on shooting guards), something PER can't document.
Still finding myself frustrated with the lack of respect or coverage the northwest is receiving.  ESPN ran its award picks from all of its analysts and Nate McMillan received just 1 vote for Coach of the Year.  There is something wrong with that.

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.
