I’ve had enough. Please, Basketball Gods - no more. First you came for Jusuf Nurkic and I cried. Then you came for Zach Collins and I yelled. Now you’ve claimed Rodney Hood as your latest victim and you’ve done it, you’ve broken me.
It’s not a secret that all season I’ve looked more towards next year than the current campaign. Now, more than ever though I’m looking towards the Blazers lining up just right for next year. This isn’t about surrendering a season, it’s about tactically retreating. Retreating so that they can regroup, smarter, stronger and more reinforced than they were heading into this season.
