Apparently, the upstanding citizen Damon Stoudamire wants to buy the Portland Trailblazers, his hometown team. This revelation comes on the heels of billionaire owner Paul Allen asking the city for a handout because he has made such terrible business decisions. It's hard to imagine that Portland will have much sympathy for Paul Allen. Woe unto the Blazers.
The Blazers could exchange their billionaire owner who is developing private space travel with a guy who gets as high as the stars when he has his feet firmly planted on the ground. I mean this guy was caught blazing on the highway with Sheed, cops found 150 grams of weed in his house, and he had the intelligence to go through an airport metal detector with an ounce and a half of weed wrapped in tin foil. Can't you just imagine him trying to build his team while he is high, he'd be the next Isiah Thomas trying to get the best fantasy league team possible.
"Team chemistry, what's that? I hope it has a high THC content."
With his track record, I can't understand David Stern having any problem with Stoudamire as an owner of an NBA team. Then again, he has allowed the self-proclaimed former drug dealer Jay-Z be a part owner of the Nets. I guess all the NBA players would know who to go to for their supply when they come to Portland.
