I watched the game on the Knicks network, and the announcers couldn't stop gushing about Travis Outlaw. Clyde Frazier marveled about how high Outlaw gets on his jumper. "He must have been 3 and half feet in the air!" Frazier cried on one Outlaw shot. He also said Outlaw was "abusing" the Knicks, throwing down "ferocious" dunks, and "having a career game." Both announcers seemed in awe of Telfair's passing, calling it "splendid," "dazzling," and "marvelous."

Personally, I am ecstatic about the Baby Blazers. This was my first chance to see Outlaw, Telfair, Khryapa, and Pryzbilla in extended action, and I thought they all looked very good. Przybilla is a monster on the boards, and he plays his heart out. Outlaw is a phenomenal talent, and is going to be a star in this league, I have no doubt about it.

I can't wait till next year!!

You know it seems like trashing on the young kids and the future of the Blazers organizationis the cool thing to do, but I for one can't. I think the future is very bright for the Blazers, specifically the young guys. I don't know how anyone can be down on these guys, but then again it's the cool thing to do.

Man I am so excited to see Bassy and Outlaw share the backcourt next year. I think both are ready. Even if we do take our lumps, it will be well worth it in the end. I think that from what we have seen from Outlaw in extended minutes, we shouldn't reach on a SG this year in the draft. Man I am just as pumped about Outlaw's defense as well. Dude is extremely active on defense.

If bashing the Blazers is cool, consider me Miles Davis- A slight remake from Billy Madison.

it's cool for those who just want to come in here and antagonize the rest of the board. They're generally those who aren't in here on a regular basis anyways, so why do we take them seriously? (I'm asking that not rhetorically)

It's not only this board. I have to agree with Sambonius to a certain extent. At work, in the paper, around town, it is definitely "chic" to dis the Blazers these days. Kinda annoying. There ARE a lot of fair weather Blazer fans in Portland.

Well the cure for that is "Wins" and as soon as the Blazers start winning again your going to see fans come out of the wood work. Many will say that they never fell off the bandwagon, but we know who the true fans are.......they are the ones that have never left even when the team missed the playoffs or had their first losing season in a long time or just plain sucked it up. Yes, I am sure that there is going to be a flood of people down the road, but right now we just have eachother, so take note and mark my words.........the time is coming for the fair weather fans to start flocking back.....you just know it is! :yes:

No, I know what The Pro Fan is talking about. Portland gets bashed all the time. I visit some Duck boards and many of them can't stadn Portland. They still see them through "jail-vision" glasses. My co-workers still think of them that way. They just aren't real fans, who won't go through thick and thin.

Talkhard, that's great you got to see a Blazer game and got to see the young guys contribute with good minutes. I'm happy for you. My impression was that it was a pretty typical game for Telfair, Outlaw flashed a lot of his potential, Pryz showed what he's been showing the last couple of months, and Viktor played below his usual level. Just my take. I thought the game showed that it's OK to be a Blazer fan that's excited about the future of our young players, and that we have WAY too many capable small forwards. Miles could barely get any burn, and was playing well. It's also cool to hear the take from other non-biased observers (i.e. the New York announcers). Thanks for sharing that.

I've typed it before and I'll type it again... this offseason is going to be huge for this franchise. It'll be interesting to see what goes down and where our young guys stand. I love my Blazers :love:

Frazier is fun to listen to. He has almost a hypnotic penchant for polysyllabic elocution.

He had nice things to say about Outlaw, but he also said he had an atypical rotation on his release. I haven't noticed that, myself.
