At your first opportunity this pre-season, try to watch a Blazer game on TV. Rudy Fernandez is UNBELIEVABLE! I haven't seen a player pass the ball and play with that kind of flair since...(I hate to say it, but it's true...) Magic Johnson.
That is the way basketball is supposed to be played. I hope ESPN runs some of his highlights, you'll see what I mean. The Blazers are going to be VERY good. Between Rudy and Oden, I predict that not only will Portland have the Rookie-Of-The-Year, but they'll also have the runner-up.
