Overshadowed, but well-rested!
The argument that it was better that Lamarcus playing limited minutes in the all-star game being a good thing is plain stupid. Portland had the longest layoff of any team during the break. The travel to Orlando alone was going to take the greatest toll on the players, sans Dwight Howard and the Threetles. But don't you think not having a game until Wednesday is enough time to recover? Do you really think having your best player only being on the court for 10 minutes during a showcase game was good? After all the hype and hoopla that was getting LA into the all-star game it was a little bit of a letdown. It was still an honor to have him selected, and a tribute to his play thus far. But on a night where the stars shine, ours was dim.
