You just have to think that by the time the smoke clears today, Rudy Fernandez will be but a memory to the Portland Trail Blazers. Too bad — a lot of potential that was never realized.
The big question around the league, though, is who do the Trail Blazers want in the draft? It’s obvious they’re trying hard to move up in the draft — but to get who? They don’t just move up to move up. They always have a target, we know that.
It’s also Kevin Pritchard’s last stand, most likely. And I’d expect him to go out in a blaze of glory. No, not to try to save his job here — but to audition for his next job. That’s what’s going on here.
So it should be one busy day. And for me, one of the most fun. We’ve got some great new rumors on the future Blazer general manager today on the MSP, on 95.5 The Game from 6-9 a.m. and on Talkin’ Ball tonight on Comcast Sportsnet from 7-8 o’clock. You’ll want to pay attention.
Happy Draft Day everyone. And set up your RSS, pay attention to twitter, whatever you do because when we hear something fresh, we’ll post it.
