    Pritchard will not draft a hot dog like Mayo; OJ doesn't fit "the culture"

    (OTOH, Derrick Rose has a name that says "Portland" and he sounds more like a "Nate McMillian kind" of point guard. But I'm not so sure they'll draft a PG next spring. Brandon Roy could well be the team's PG of the future, with Euro-league MVP Rudy Fernandez coming over from Spain to play #2, next fall. They may target a small forward, instead)

    And even without Oden, I'm not ready to concede that the '07-08 Blazers have no shot at a WC playoff berth
    Never overlook the obvious

    That would be fitting, isn't The Rose Garden the name of Portland's arena?

    I feel bad for him. Kevin Durant is probably looking pretty good to the Blazers right about now, but it was a no brainer to take Oden, or so I was told.

    That's classy---and inaccurate use of the term. A bust is someone who turns out to be not as good as projected. This is injury related.

    exactly, I also hate when people say that Ki-Jana Carter was a bust.
    because at the end of the day, they still are the Chicago Cubs, and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up--Marty B.

    Sam Bowie agrees with you.

    There are a lot of guys who qualify. It is one reason I do not ever begrudge the kid that leaves for the pros when the money is there because you just never know, no matter how talented.
