For the first time in 22 years, the Portland Trail Blazers will not be participating in the NBA playoffs.
Portland has somehow managed to trade Rasheed to Atlanta for Shareef Abdur-Raheem and Theo Ratliff.
The San Antonio Spurs beat the New Jersey Nets tonight 88-77, to win the 2003 NBA Championship.
Some quotes from the game.
84-79 is the kind of score you see in a high school playoff game, not in an NBA championship series.
A good solid game, and we can go into the offseason with our dignity intact, which is more than anyone expected after a season that could be politely described as “tumultuous.”
Today’s game against L.A. was the only Blazer game this season to be broadcast on ABC, so I made a point of watching it. And my boys made it worth it, with a huge 101-99 win over the dread Lakers.
Going into the last week of the NBA season, the Blazers have managed to distract themselves yet again with another round of citations and infighting.
