    Just when I was going to ask someone to photoshop a picture of a tank with Felton's face on it for my avatar. Fucking Felton.

    That was about as ugly as a win can be - and with our longterm prospect, a bad result. But having sat through it, I'd have been in a very bad mood had I walked back to my car with a loss.

    As I left the RG tonight, I saw the Warriors' equiptment manger walking towards their bus with a huge bag....... it said "ping-pong" balls on it.

    Our "shooting" guards did their best for the pingball cause: 3-22. I assume Wes and Crawford are not blaming their shooting woes on Nate.

    What new SG will be have next year: Lamb, Rivers, a FA?

    I'd be cool with Rivers. He can run the point as well in limited minutes.

    Good piece by quick about how bad this win hurts, especially as it means we will see more of Felton and less of Flynn. http://www.oregonlive.com/blazers/in...et_a_look.html

    I looked up the Knicks. They had a stretch where they went 6-11 including an embarrassing 24 point loss to the Hornets that had everyone in NYC believing the season was over. But they didn't give up and rallied to make the playoffs and ultimately, the Finals.

    I'll still cheer for the team to win. I realize it's in our best interest to lose right now, but I can't help myself regarding cheering for them.

    I wouldn't mind if the team won with the young guys. It's pointless to play Felton, Crawford and Thomas any significant minutes.

    When I watch, I can't help but cheer for them to win. But when I miss a game (missed the second half of the Warriors game), I don't mind them losing if it helps the team in the long run.

    Still, I don't ever advocate losing for the sake of losing. It's habit forming. If you're going to play, you play to win. But, as the coach, you have some discretion and can elect to sit some veterans in order to help the younger players gain vaulable experience. But, if you do, you always do everything you can to put those young guys in a position to succeed.

    Pop does this all the time. He rests his vets when they need a night off and then coaches the hell out of the replacements. It may occasionally cost them a game or two, but in the long run his veteran players are rested come playoff time and his bench players have gained valuable experience. He makes occasional short term sacrifices for the long term greater good. Loses an occasional battle in an effort to win the war.

    That's the starting line-up that the Blazers beat 90-87 at the Rose Garden last night. Fire Canales. He's trying too hard, and while I don't blame him, it's stupid to play Felton 34 minutes against anybody, let alone this hot garbage. If you need Ray Felton to play 34 minutes to eek out a W against that team, then you're not thinking of the future.
