Roster is Finalized - Shavlik in? Jackson and Hill Out?

Say it ain't so KP!  I feel myself weeping a little bit inside as Pritchard actually decided to keep a Dukie around instead of the bearded grizzly.

Today the roster was finalized at 15 spots with Shavlik Randolph grabbing the final spot which in turn left Steven Hill and Luke "Love my Jheri Curl" Jackson on the outs.  Not sure the reasoning behind this except that Randolph was once touted as a pretty exceptional talent when he sold his soul to the devil Duke.  Of course he underachieved there, left school early and struggled to find playing with a team like the Sixers.

Hill on the other hand seemed to be a work-a-holic that would have been an excellent punching bag to Oden all season long as they battled it out for best Blazer beard.  He also fit the part of any documentary you may see on the Discovery Channel as the stunt man for Timothy Treadwell which gives him instant credibility in the wonderfully outdoorsy state of Oregon.

And finally Luke Jackson...enough said.

Good luck Shavlik!

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.
