In response to R9R's comment:
I feel that Portland is one of best kept secrets of a fabulus place to live..If not the city Oregon itself. TS ...why hasn't Rose sufaced this year yet? Sometimes massive injuries forever reside in an athlete's head. I hope he is ok..he is a super talent and fun to watch.
Its a huge decision ... especially when there are relatively recent examples of guys coming back too soon and not ever getting fully back to pre-ACL levels. Obviously the surgery itself is much more advanced than it has been, but if you are a max contract athlete and your whole career depends on your recovery, I think you'd take it slow and be 110% certain about returning.
Portland is awesome, no doubt! Fun city, good people, beautiful state. I hear the Rose Garden gets insane. I guess its just not a HUGE market and doesn't have a storied history. Though, I've never fully understood those two issues. If you're making millions being a famous basketball player, do you really need to be in a megatropolis? Do you want to be in a garden full of banners, or hang the first one yourself?
Any player who isn't in it to win it doesn't deserve to get paid, imho
Don't know..haven't been there but I agree 100%. Look at Ray he went to win, or did he?
There is more to the top of the heap than fame and fortune. Class , quality of life for yourself and your family is important too. If you can get some great talents onboard with you, get the fans convinced and lead by example anything is possible..especially self satisfaction. In a way what the "C's"(KG and PP) are about. BTW I'm not a RA fan any more...just the way it is.
