Hello fellow Blazermaniacs.
Im Dennis, aka lavaboy77
, a 28 year old Trail Blazer fan from Western Massachusetts. I've been a die-hard fan since the 1990-91 season and routinely go see the Blazers when they play in Boston.
As far as my favorite current Trail Blazer, I would have to say that I like Martell Webster. I havent seen much of him, but I like his potential and his attitude.
Im glad to see that we re-signed Pryzbilla yesterday (well, he committed because teams cannot sign free agents for almost another week) because that shows that he is dedicated to the team.
The draft was a great day in Trail Blazers recent history. Lets face it. This franchise has been borderline-cursed for at least 10 years. We had some good teams. But we had some bad players in terms of character and behavior, both off the court and on.
Rasheed, Bonzi, Rider, Stoudamire, Woods, Miles, Zach, even Telfair with his gun incident.
Im glad to see that we're bringing in players that have character that rivals their talent.
This franchise is in complete disarray, from top to bottom. I told a friend prior to the draft that the only constant on this team from the ownership to the front office to the players is the coach. I like Nate's style and his desire.
Hopefully this team can get rid of the overpaid malcontents (Miles and Randolph). It would be a dream off season if we could dump both. I would trade them to the Knicks for two hot dogs, some nachos and a large coke.
Anyhow, we have a great young nucleus that has the potential to be superb if it develops to its potential.
I want to see Rip City returned to glory.
