They didn't read my earlier posts

So the Blazers appear to be trying to finally end any loyalty from the Portland fan base. That came about when they didn't draft Morrison, which they could have done with the number two pick from Chicago. That isn't really what has sent me again to the dark realms trying to figure out how much more I can take. What did that was the trading away of Telfair and Khryapa, two guys I considered to be important parts of the building of this Blazers team. I would have liked to keep them both anyway, but especially if the Blazers are serious about moving Randolph and Miles. If they're able to get rid of those two guys--and this next part could happen only if the first one does--and re-sign Przybilla, then they have a core of Przybilla, Jack, Dixon, Outlaw, and Webster coming back next year. That isn't the core of players I would want. Throw in an overpaid Raef LaFrentz and Dan Dickau--who the Blazers already gave an audition--and I'm not convinced that Aldridge and Roy were worth it. Having said that, I just now found out that we traded Foye for Roy, and I'm really happy about that. I just think it's too bad we took Aldridge, and I'm even more upset that we traded away Telfair, who I think could still become an unbelievable point guard.

I just finished a class and needed to rant, so that's all for now. I'm going to buy a computer some time next week, so I'll have a chance at that point to edit and post my running diary of 1992 NBA Finals game 6.
