Amazing what a couple weeks will do for a team. The Blazers won the draft lottery last night for the rights to pick first in this years NBA draft, the most highly coveted #1 pick since Lebron James a few years back. Couple that with Brandon Roy’s rookie of the year win and I’m actually excited about seeing them play next year.
It’s been years since I’ve attended or even watched a game on tv as they’ve fielded teams that were terrible on and off the court. I’m definitely not alone, as the team has suffered huge decreases in attendance and financial performance. It doesn’t take a genius to predict that with this stroke of luck, the team should now have a city starting to get behind it again.
