Blazer tid bits

Damian Lillard is the Rookie of the Year. No surprise there. He won the award on a unanimous decision. Lillard was the 3rd rookie all time with at least 1,500 points and 500 dimes joining Oscar Robertson and Allen Iverson. Damian joins Brandon Roy, Sidney Wicks, and Geoff Petrie as the other Blazer ROYs.

Hey, guess who's not gonna have the "evil touch" for our Blazers? Trainer Jay Jensen has moved on. I know it's unfair to blame Jay for Greg Oden, Brandon Roy and all the other Blazer injuries. Jay Jensen is to the Blazers as Steve Bartman is to the Cubs. A true scapegoat. And now, that goat is out to pasture.

We got a new assistant coach. Nate Tibbits. Who? Yeah, exactly. Whoop-dee-doo. Probably the easiest job in the NBA is the assistant coach. This is hardly worth mentioning, but, he is a new addition to the Blazers.

Spring time is tough when we don't reach the post season. This upcoming draft is pretty lame. We've been preaching the same thing over and over from the IBB camp: TRADE FOR VETERANS. Peace.
