I completely get your point and I love Rudy's game - I am a huge proponent of searching for / finding talent from overseas, but look at Tony Parker when he arrived in San Antonio.......I don't think anyone outside of Popovich thought he'd EVER be as good as he has become - but even then Popovich didn't just hand him the reins to the team in his first season.

Portland has a LOT of young talent and while that IS a bonus, it must also make Coach McMillan's job very difficult, in balancing out minutes and determining who plays when.

I'm not happy with the loss, but we're in the playoffs -- we're being competitive -- and we don't have to worry about any of these guys pulling any thuggery.

GO BLAZERS!!!

You have a young and talented team. Please, sign a good coach for the next season.
With your team how can you play only for Roy? He is the best player of the team but you cant win in playoffs only with one player in the offense.
Sorry but after the 2nd game was clear that Houston will pass the round. Above all becouse MacMillan is not able to change his plans "on-line".

Yes, you have a good team and a good coach, and probably you will be out of playoffs in the first round. dont you think that something could be wrong?

You have to admit: you dont have a good coach and Portland has not good weather. Thats the way it is. ;)

This team has drastically improved each year Nate has been the coach. Will he get us a championship? I don't know. But I say we stick with him AT LEAST until we see that the team is no longer improving.

Ditto. This team is beginning to take shape and I'm really looking forward to what we do in the off season and how much we improve on this good season.

GO BLAZERS!!!

I will have to agree to disagree - I like our coach - I like our core of young talented players.........and I don't have a freaking clue what the weather has to do with anything.....HOWEVER, I happen to like the weather in the Pacific Northwest.......is it Miami? Malibu? San Diego? Uhhh, no it isn't but guess what those three places have in common??? I don't WANT to live there - I like it where I am......that's why I live here!!!

Opppss, sorry, i didnt know that you cant understand a joke with the weather.

Lets talk about basketball then. There are some people who have my opinion:

Portland in playoffs is very easy to scouting. I think that Portland had to beat Houston clearly.
