Link:Trailblazers: Stoudamire's effort not enough

Despite a solid game from Trailblazers point guard Damon Stoudamire, the Blazers lost to the in-state rival Sonics. In 36 minutes, Stoudamire put up 19 points, five rebounds, five assists, and hit five 3-pointers.
It seems like every year the Trailblazers try to re-invent their identity and it has reached that again this season. Despite numerous recreations, it always seems like Stoudamire is still around and its games like these that show us why.
What I find funny is that Seattle and Portland are now in the same state (don't know which city changed states) and that they feel games like this are the reason we keep Damon. I'd say its more likely that he has a contract that is so high that we can't trade him.
Ah well, a little humor.
