The Pre-Funk: Kings vs. Blazers 12/15



The all day coverage you need to go into tonight's contest.  We're just making sure you're prepared to drop that extra knowledge on the brosephs to get you another smidgen of respect.

Party Attendees...

The fact that the Blazers don't even have enough guys to run through 5-on-5 drills in practice has me giggling with bewilderment at this point.  As the injuries have built up, the team's flaws seem even more evident and the lofty expectations of the 2009-10 season have disappeared.  Unlike last year, no one is shooting the ball consistently, each week has another half dozen rumors of unhappiness and rotation questions, and I even went on the record admitting that I'd rather have Travis Outlaw than Martell Webster.  It's a season of frustrations for everyone involved on every level.

And tonight, Portland welcomes the Sacramento Kings to town who happen to be one of the unexpected bright spots in the NBA and are no longer a push-over.  This marks the return of Sergio Rodriguez, Tyreke Evans' Rose Garden cherry popping, and the only weak team the Blazers will face for the rest of the month.

We're not going "must win" with this one, but it's easily in the "you better win or else" category.

On Tap...
Cheap Shots...

Battier... That would be interesting.

If there is some way to get rid of Martell in the process of trading for Battier, I'd be in heaven.

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.
