Found April 01, 2012 on Oregon Sports News:
The General Manager position for the Trailblazers has been open since November, and now it seems to look like the search has been narrowed to two big names. Danny Ainge and Steve Kerr are the names that have popped up for the position, and I think personally Ainge would be a better hire than Kerr. Ainge would help rebuild Rip City through the draft and free agency the same way he operates for Boston. Portland owner Paul Allen is known to make big name moves when picking a coach or a general manager, basically the same way he does with the other team Allen owns, The Seattle Seahawks. Due to history, I think it will be a close race for the job, as both have ties to the blazers. Both men played for the club, and it doesn’t get much more intimate than that.   The rumor is that Kerr, now with TNT, has said that “he wants more time with his family”, same old story. Didn’t Brett Favre and Roger Clemens use the family as a tool to resign his name from the family card? Or perhaps it’s...

VIDEO: Full Highlights of Rondo's Triple Double vs Heat

The Celtics are just beginning the "daunting" part of their schedule, or as I like to call it, the "fun" part. Rajon Rondo started off April with a bang.  His 18th career triple double was only fooling Miami yesterday as he notched 16 points, 11 rebounds, 14 assists with only 2 turnovers. Rondo has just been on a tear since the All-star break, consistently...

Ray Allen "literally can't play"

"You can see, moving around, he's just not ready to play. He literally can't play." -- Rivers on Allen. — Ken Berger (@KBergCBS) April 1, 2012 That is not very encouraging news as Ray Allen misses yet another game due to his ankle issues.   At this point, I'm not sure whether I should be encouraged that he is constantly a game time decision or...

Pierce's Jayhawks to take on Rondo's Wildcats

Well this should make for a couple interesting days in the Celtics locker room. Today the Celtics face the Heat, which is obviously a big deal for all the C's, but tomorrow's NCAA National Championship game is also pretty huge for at least two Celtics. Rajon Rondo's twitter background has been all about Kentucky of late and Pierce took to twitter last night to start...

Paul Pierce named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

If my calculations are correct, Pierce averaged 25.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 steals this week, while being overlooked by fans in favor of heaping praise on Kevin Garnett and/or Rajon Rondo approximately 15,398,387 times. (Note: Don’t take that as an insult to KG or Rondo. Both deserve all the praise they’ve gotten, just like Pierce deserves a lot more praise...

Rajon Rondo, national television, triple-double, not so shocking

Watch how he darts into the paint. How his teammates suddenly find themselves open for easy looks. How his team’s offense occasionally transforms from the league’s 25th-most efficient unit into a beautiful wave of uncontested jump shots and daring dashes to the hoop.Check how Rajon Rondo sometimes takes the Boston Celtics and lifts them to a level they couldn’t achieve without...

Rondo Triple-Double Lead Hot Celtics Past Heat

I’ll admit. I was nervous. Having the #2-seed in the Eastern Conference coming to play this older Celtics squad made me a bit queasy. Then I remembered that the game was at the Garden and it was a nationally-televised game, also known as Rajon Rondo’s time to shine. The C’s point guard puts up ridiculous numbers in nationally-televised Celtics games at the Garden, and yesterday...

"[Pierce is] the guy. [Point guard Rajon] Rondo doesn’t get to the line as much as we’d like, so we need someone to go to the line. Kevin...

Rondo's triple-double sparks Celtics past Heat

After leading by 5 at the half, the Celtics...
