The darkest hours




Maybe I'm wrong but I'm still convinced that that the past 24 hours have been the worst in Blazers' history. From today's Oregonian"

"He drew a technical foul -- one of the lasting impressions of his tenure in Portland -- with 5:03 left in the third, drawing a cascade of catcalls from the crowd. Wallace then egged the crowd on by waving his hands above his head, asking for more boos. When the boos did come, Wallace pointed to the scoreboard, which read Pistons 75, Blazers 60."

But a colleague of mine was at the Rose Garden last night and he claims the crowd was actually half-cheering 'Sheed's showboating. You know the situation has grown dire when fans start longing for the bad ol' days of "check the check" and praise a player they outright despised a little over a year ago- a player who strolled back into town with a big, fat championship ring on his finger.

Worse yet, Maurice Cheeks was given the boot this morning.

After the game, Wallace reportedly threw his arm around his former coach's shoulder as they headed into the bowels of the Rose Garden. A weird exit after a weird few years on the Blazers' stage.

While Cheek's headaches may finally be over, Portland's pain has only just begun. As recent history proves, no matter how much talent (Cheeks) and problems (Wells/Wallace) the hometown franchise rids itself of, things will only get worse.
