End of an Era
The Blazers waived Darius Miles yesterday and if all goes as planned the remaining $48 million of his contract won't count against the salary cap (he'll still get the money though). The Blazers should be able to add even more young talent with this new found cap room. Miles hasn't played in two whole seasons after injuring his knee and is the last remnant of the Jailblazer era. It's nice to have him gone. Portland has two games left of the season and could very well end the season without a loosing record. It was only two years ago they were the worst in the league going 21-61. This was a great building year that gave a lot of experience to this young team, they should be able to make the playoffs next year.
