Cut out this piss poor basketball that you've been playing. I can't take it, and start Andre Miller because they sucked before he started, then he started and they went on a win streak, now he's not starting and they suck again. I'm not a big Andre Miller fan, but results are results. Starting the inferior Steve Blake like it's an intelligent choice Nate McMuffin. Get it together Blazers.

First off we need to play some D. Oden can't do it all himself.

I do agree I'd love to see Miller starting. He doesn't have a 3 point shot, but Webster does so he doesn't really need one as long as he can make a set shot which he can.

What has been great though is Oden's play! 13 pts, 20 rbs, and 4 block shots in 30 mins. And that's with us not utilizing him as we should.

I think the good though is once we get use to playing off of Oden we are going to be a much better team it's just going to take some time.

People point to the addition of Miller and Howard as being the problem, but that are only a couple of the factors. We are missing two players because of injury, one of them a starter and one our 6th man. We have two new starters, Webster and Oden. Webster wasn't even playing last year so that is a big change in itself.

It's going to take some time, but we will be alright, just have some patience.

What exactly is going on with Roy right now? A lot of people seem to be saying he's showing signs of what a younger leader would be doing. I know he had a meeting with his coach along with Oden/Aldridge, but I wasn't paying too much attention when they were talking about it. Something about he feels he's sacrificing too much?

Not sure what you mean by the part I put in bold. I guess you mean he's showing signs what a younger player, not leader would be doing? He has always put the team first in the past and I think he's doing that now, but I think he's worried that he's doing it so much it's hurting the team.

I think that the switch to a 3 guard lineup was a big mistake because it put Roy at SF which did take a lot away from his game. Roy, LMA, and Oden had a meeting with Nate, but they did the same thing last year. I think the biggest thing is they are trying to get use to playing with Oden having a more dominant role on the team. This should have been done last year, but because of Oden recovering from knee surgery and having a few minnor injuries he didn't get going like he has this year. It's just going to take some time.
