The Portland Trailblazers make bad decisions. Twenty-six years ago, the Blazers made the infamous decision to draft Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan. Three years ago, the Blazers doubled down on that mistake by passing on Kevin Durant in favor of Greg Oden, who so far has been Bowie-esque.
It should come as no surprise that the Blazers wont be at full-force when they take on the Phoenix Suns. Not only is Greg Oden out for the season (a description that has applied to Oden far more often than not) but now Brandon Roy is hobbled as well. While the Blazers are still a talented team, the Suns should be able to handle Portland.
