It's Von Wafer People - The Blazers Don't Need Him

First off, take a look at this picture as we all need a good laugh.  Eyes closed?

It may seem like this guy has been torching the Blazers this series but the idea that the Blazers should have never let him go is preposterous.  If anyone was listening to Brian Wheeler today, you would know that the Blazers let him go because he was unwilling to put in the extra work to become a better player and secure a spot on anyone's roster.  That's right, he also took this outstanding work ethic with him from team to team before landing with Portland just securing his reputation as someone just looking to cash a paycheck.

If you look at his game log from the series, you will also see that he has far from "torched" Portland.  In his biggest game, racking up 21 points, the Rockets lost, confirming that this guy is nothing more than a below average role playing gunner. 

Do his dunks or 3's seem timely?  Sure they do, but it also helps that he showboats down the court even after a first quarter three as if he had just won the lottery. 

Is this really the kind of guy you want with this team?  Hasn't Kevin Pritchard done an incredible enough job of getting rid of cancers?  Travis Outlaw may have disappeared in this series, but I'll take a Trout anyday over a cookie.

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.
