Blazers Searching for Answers
Posted By HOOPSWORLD On April 7, 2013 @ 8:10 am In Headlines,NBA Headlines | No Comments
Should the Blazers be fighting like demons to win every game even though the playoffs are out of reach or is this the time a veteran says, “Don’t stress about it…just go out there and play your best and let’s get home safely”?
Does merit still govern decisions about playing time or should less tested players be getting a chance to prove their worth?
Are these the games in which you want Damian Lillard to explore his point guard side or are they the last steps in a glitzy, point-filled coronation march to the Rookie of the Year title? Do you want him running the offense or dominating the offense? Are you looking for his fit or his ceiling?
Every time you come up with a definitive answer to one of these questions I can make a similarly definitive counter-argument. Nobody’s right. It’s a matter of perspective. Wesley Matthews is justified in his, “What the heck are we doing? We should be playing harder than this!” LaMarcus Aldridge is just as correct with his “Chill, man. It’s the end of the season. And by the way, didn’t you guys just blow my 30-point effort? What else do you want me to do?”
