do you think the blazers can pull themselves out of the ashes and compete next season, or do we set some franchise lows next season. we should have a balanced lineup if sar leaves, and either miles or ruben starts, but we have a 2nd yr 20 year old pg, no sg but da the glass, and zach is coming back from knee surgery. we are good defensively at center with przy and theo, but przy has proven himself to be a starter in this league, so theo will get maybe 20 minutes a night. but im guessing its going to be another lotto team, because even with vets this season we underpormed i think. theres was no reason for this team to not be an above .500 team when it started out, or even a playoff team. theres talent, but someone needs to step up. damon tried, but i thinmk zach needs to take this offseason and see what he wants to be. i think he could be the next malone if he just busts his butt and plays the way he can play. a 2 guard would help him so much as far as taking pressure off. malone had stockton and hornacek(however you spell it), and zach pretty much has nobody who is clutch.
