A party full of post-game links and coverage to give you every over-analyzed angle in hopes of making your Blazers IQ that much greater.
One less player and coach and the exact same result we've come to expect: uncontested jumpers, uncontested layups, easy bucket after easy bucket, predictable offensive sets, inconsistent play from role players, large deficits, a disappearing Aldridge in the clutch, excuses, etc.....annoyingly etc.
At some point you have to start questioning everything don't you? Is Brandon Roy the right guy to lead this franchise? How big of a mistake was signing LaMarcus Aldridge to an almost-max deal? Has the coaching staff lost this team? Is Kevin Pritchard too close to his players and afraid to move them?
Obviously I understand the fact that this same team won 54 games last year and is still sitting at 13-9, but with their play of late, they might be 13-21 by the end of December. They are 1-4 in their last 5 games and have trailed by double figures in all of them; most by 20 or more.
Does Dr. Phil do NBA teams?
