The Portland Trailblazers' "free-throw" guy lol

Has anybody else seen this guy lol? He's the dude that sits right behind the visitors court and acts stupid trying to get the visiting team to miss a free-throw. Hilarious.

On another note... I'm watching Eric Gordon take over the 2nd half and 4th quarter trying to pull his team to victory. Him and B. Roy are going back and forth in the 4th.

Shout out to Bayless and the

Shout out to Bayless and the rest of the Blazers. Aldridge went down in the first quarter due to an ankle injury. Didn't return. Blazers are still balling... Dudes are stepping up.

The crazy thing is their players get injured without being touched... Aldridge sprained his ankle going for a steal and it didn't even look like anything serious.

Another injury

Another injury, another win...Great game. Roy played decent, but scored when he needed to. Bayless played good in the 4th and Pendergraph did a fantastic job against 3 7 footers.

Which curse is worse I

Which curse is worse I wonder lol... The Clippers curse or the Blazers?

With these two teams on the court together... I was terrified at the possibilities of awful things happening lol.

Portland got a couple of breaks. Two backcourt calls... The refs missed. Blake confuses me sometimes. He makes great plays, but then turns around and makes very bad ones... He was terrible inbounding the ball on multiple occassions. Last season during the playoffs... He took that TERRIBLE shot vs Houston. They need to trade Blake or Miller and give Bayless those minutes.

So?

Your saying they shouldn't have won the game? Anyway, Bayless is a fantastic talent, but he is not ready to be the starting pg for the Blazers...I think they should trade Blake and package a deal for a good big men.

Aldridge injury not too bad

http://blog.oregonlive.com/behindblazersbeat/2009/12/aldridge_leaves_cli...

Says it doesn't look serious. I was curious for fantasy purposes - considered dropping DeJuan Blair from my bench for Jeff Pendergraph after the game he had, but it looks like Blair might be the better bet.

If I were him I wouldn't rush back. I would kick it at home on my couch until I am a free agent.

mikenike

do you know anything about basketball? first you said the blazers are cursed and aldridge should wait for free agency which is in 5 years for him. why are the blazers cursed? because of one injury heavy season, aside from oden of course, no one gets hurt that often.

Mikenike... LOL!!! That was bleeping hilarious! The I in win... Learn to take a joke lol. Sheesh. Lighten up. Get a softer computer chair cushion or something bro.

Gregoden08... No... I think Portland should've won that game. I just think the refs missed two key calls late. They also missed a foul on Baron Davis in the 4th after Gordon stole it from Roy. I'm a fan of both teams, so I call it like I see it.

As far as Bayless... I don't think he's ready to start, but I think he's ready to play big minutes on a consistent basis. When Outlaw and Batum return, that won't happen if both Miller and Blake are still with the team. I think Blake needs to be dealt and Bayless should get those minutes consistently.

The one above was obviously just a joke......And One season? Ever heard of Bill Walton? ever heard of Greg Oden's rookie season?(This is his 2nd year being injured)

So don't come at me for no good reason.

Bill Walton, Sam Bowie, Greg

Bill Walton, Sam Bowie, Greg Oden... All top picks going down to injuries. Two centers breaking their knees in less than a month by just jumping and landing... Coach ruptures his achilies. Batum tears his shoulder. Outlaw breaks his foot during his contract year...... Fernandez has a bad back caused by a nerve or something! I mean, sheesh... Lol. Even their two rookies were injured to start the season. That's a lot of injures for one team!!!

They do keep winning... The injuries have brought them closer together, which is a great thing... Nate McMillian coach of the year though? LOL... No, no, no, no. He's a good coach (how can I say he's not when looking at what he's done for Portland in regards to record, etc), but he's a terrible coach at the same time. I hated his substitution patterns at the beginning of the season and just how he handled things. I hated how he just gives the ball to Roy and lets him isolate all the time... Hated how he didn't/doesn't have the balls to tell Roy to learn to play off the ball. He's probably doing better now that the team isn't as deep.

And Roy being a MVP candidate... Sure, but I lost respect for him. He complained so hard about his role, etc at the beginning of the season that people started getting injured lol. Now they have no choice, but to play Roy ball.

And another thing about Nate

And another thing about Nate McMillian... He doesn't use players right. He had Bayless rotting on the bench until players got injured, which was just inexcusable. Bayless should've been in the rotation long ago, but was getting held back because he's not a traditional point guard. Last season he didn't use Channing Frye right... Now he's in Phoenix putting up great numbers. He didn't use Oden right... Giving him isolation post ups, when that's not his game. He's not using Fernandez right... I just don't like the way he uses players. You have to play to your players' strengths and I don't think he does that. They picked up a point guard who likes to run in Andre Miller this summer, yet the team barely runs. It's confusing.

Tezo I agree 100% but I have to correct you on this: ........"They picked up a point guard who likes to run in Andre Miller this summer, yet the team barely runs. It's confusing. "

Nope, they are running.It just looks like their walking in slow motion because Andre Miller is leading the fast break.

Bayless looked really good

made some tough shots,played hard,got some assists!like him...they need to give him consistent minutes even when the team gets healthy...

BTW WTF is up with the last two plays going to Baron Davis...he went 2 for 15 and he still gets those last two shots...For anyone who was watching,did you notice how Camby had to point to Baron Davis that EJ was wide open and he still didnt even pass him the ball...Seriously i dont think Baron Davis like Eric Gordon at all

I think they get along better this season, but last season... I know for a fact that Baron and EJ didn't like each other. EJ's dad and his little brother Evan told me during the Pacers vs Clippers game last year that him and EJ got into it all the time at practice.

I've said this before, but I don't think we'll see EJ play up to his potential until Baron is gone. Baron's a ball hog and he holds onto the ball for too long... Takes bad shots and doesn't always play hard.

I can't think of a reason

I can't think of a reason why not to like Gordon, he seems like a really cool guy..So does Baron, but he is a chucker on the court.

At first sight, Gordon comes

At first sight, Gordon comes off as anti-social. He doesn't talk a lot and he's shy. He has a different type of sense of humor lol. He's one of those dudes who'll smile and laugh at the most stupidest sh*t lol. It takes a min. to get used to him and for him to get used to you. I think Baron didn't understand that at first.

You know what though lol? The funny thing is he's a different person on the court. It's crazy. Off the court he's a quiet immature dude, but on the court... He goes into grown man mode.

On another note... I forgot. I miscalculated... Made a mistake. Due to the adamantium in my bones... I'd somehow manage to cut my own head off while playing for the Clippers due to activating the claws.
