Hello, Blazer fans and all alike, this is Mrs. Blazeoflove!! I am filling in a little while the Mr. is on hiatus.
The biggest news as of late, is the trade for Marcus Camby, sending Steve Blake and Travis Outlaw to the LA Clippers. I know a lot of fans out there loved both players, but if we want this team to have a chance in the playoffs we need a center while both Greg Oden and Joel Pryzbilla are recovering from season-ending knee injuries. Camby is averging 7.7 pts and 12.1 rebounds a game and has played with both Andre Miller and Juwan Howard which is a nice bonus. The Blazers will need him defensively more than anything plus the guy is a rebounding machine! Martell Webster even expressed that he was glad that we acquired him both professionally and as a friend. Camby will make his debut as a Blazer tonight against the Boston Celtics!
Now must I say more...the Boston Celtics. I don't think for me that there is another team that I despise like this. Kevin Garnett and his chest punches put a sour taste in my mouth. They are playing a back to back game tonight and will be high from all the smog and the win against the Lakers, but we have B-Roy and the debut of Camby!
So everyone throw on the jerseys and head to the Rose Garden or to your nearest dive bar and cheer on your Portland Trailblazers!!
