I would have given anything to see the look on the faces of […]

Day 4 – Votes and the Degree of Difficulty

3 votes – Brandon Roy. 42 points on 15/27 shooting, including 12 in the fourth, most of which came against one of the league’s best defenders in Artest. That can of whoop-ass is officially open. The most alarming thing for the Blazers, is despite Roy’s massive game and Aldridge’s 27-12 and Yao’s measly 11 points, […]
