The Past Is The Past


I love Damon Stoudamire. There are people in Portland who never liked him. He was the hometown boy, from Wilson High, who we snatched away from Toronto and brought home. He lead us in heart and hardwork at times, and with stupid choices and a bad attitude at others. But I will say this for Damon. He plays a beautiful game, he plays it with heart, and he always believes he can win. He owns some of my favorite Blazer moments with buzzer-beaters. Now Damon is gone, and in Memphis of all places. He spoke with John Canzano and it really made me nostalgic. That game 7 versus the Lakers was one of the sadder days of my life, I had skipped my best friend's graduation to sit in a living room with my entire extended family, only to watch the Blazers loose a 9 point lead and a chance at the Pacers in the finals. It took me a couple days to really start talking regularly. I bleed for the Blazers, and Damon Stoudamire is a true Blazer. Even if he is in Memphis. Go Blazers.
