Too bad. Something got lost in the translation this year.

Someguy again 03-15-2012 04:47 PM

more candidates for the knicks... :throw:

powerfulpanda 03-15-2012 04:48 PM

can someone briefly summarize whats going on with the blazers this year? i haven't been following them

komot 03-15-2012 04:49 PM

hes a great coach, i blame the GM for the team he put together after broy and oden weren't coming back. to many old guys that can't do much anymore and the felton for miller trade. miller was amazing on that team.

'trane 03-15-2012 04:50 PM

he should have better utlized roy and oden. it's definitely nate's fault. :face4:

they're getting blown out the past few games because the guards are playing mediocre ball despite aldridge going beast mode every night.

sound familiar? like chris bosh on the raptors familiar?

Dario 03-15-2012 05:01 PM

He was a video guy? lol thats hilarious

Kirby 03-15-2012 05:02 PM

I guess something had to happen. They couldn't get rid of Matthews and Felton so I guess they turned to McMillan.

They have too much talent to be losing like this.

js12 03-15-2012 05:03 PM

Not unexpected at all. I was pretty sure Nate wouldn't last longer than today as head coach after that 42 point blowout vs. the Knicks. Too bad though, not exactly his fault at all.

Dario 03-15-2012 05:09 PM

Portland was looking in getting rid of him, so this was kind of expected

Don Vito 03-15-2012 11:58 PM

It came up a couple of times in Thriller's thread.

1- They had a bad record in games decided by 5 or fewer points, especially in the first half of the sched. Unless they blew teams away in the first 3 quarters, they were fucked.

2- The big reason for point 1 was the guards shitting the bed. In particular, Crawford and Felton.

Nate isn't a bad coach. I'd bet on him landing a HC job somewhere else in the next couple of years, assuming he wants back in.

powerfulpanda 03-16-2012 11:43 AM

thanks someguy and bill.
i just find it wierd....they're essentially the same team as last year which was a very good team and this year add a jamal crawford. they started the year were they left off last year and then i stop noticing them for a while ......and then WTF is going on with the blazers?!

jordan is offering a job to him during the summer. mcmillian can make shit sparkle, especially what he's done with the trailblazers at the start of the season when they were tearing everything up after they lost roy and oden

Well, Felton is also new. Both Crawford and Felton were off-season acquisitions. The Blazers traded Andre Miller for Felton.

Felton and Crawford were a big part of the problem in the first half of the season when they lost a bunch of close games. They were missing wide open looks. A couple of the games I watched were disgusting. Aldridge got doubled, kicked it out, the ball moved to the open guy on the perimeter and ....clank. Even when they were above .500 there was a problem with the consistency of the outside shooting.
