Adande on the Blazers

Over at ESPN, J.A. Adande did a little write up about the Blazers. It’s clearly intended for a national audience, and thus mostly just a rehash of information you probably already know, but the quotes are solid. It’s not really a column, either, since there isn’t a ton of opinion from Adande, but I always say these things are worth a read because of how ESPN can shape the public’s perception of team’s they aren’t as familiar with.

Howard, the oldest man on a team stocked with eight players 25 or under, has taken on the advice-dispensing role as well. He called a team meeting when the Blazers were in New Jersey two weeks ago.

“I told them it’s a time for all of us to recommit ourselves and look in the mirror and see what we can do better,” Howard said. “This is a time of year when a lot of teams are starting to gear up and starting to play playoff-intensity-type basketball. Why not us? We have to do the same thing if we want to make it to the playoffs.”

Everyone loves a good team meeting.
