Breaking News: Canzano Proves He's an Incompetent Fool

Maybe it's because he's angry at the world because he's balding, or maybe it's because his head looks the same on the inside as it does on the outside (empty!). But whatever the reason, I have no idea why Mr. Canzano thinks he can just make up absolute garbage and publish it in the Oregonian. He argues that this franchise should trade one of it's cornerstones, Darius Miles. Folks, this is just plain rediculous. Canzano writes, "The NBA trade deadline is Feb. 23, but the unmistakable fear resonating from the franchise yacht is that Miles, like O'Neal, will be traded, then someday realize his potential and become an All-Star in some other uniform.
To which someone at One Center Court should explain to Allen, "'You know, boss, that 'somewhere else' part isn't so bad in this case.'" The dirty little secret here is that Miles, who has been out recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, really doesn't love basketball. He'll tell you as much himself. He doesn't live it. He doesn't breathe it. Basketball is a job to him, like filing papers, selling insurance or digging ditches. And while Miles is a gifted athlete, he's just good enough to get you beat, and just destructive enough to undermine the growth that coach Nate McMillan has made. Anyone still think it's coincidental that the Blazers enjoyed their best growth curve with Miles out? Which is why it's time to immediately transition Project Darius from the 'take your time coming back' to the 'so long' stage. " Ok, so if Miles is SO bad that he is a detriment to this team, then why is he averaging roughly 18 pts, 5 rbs, 2 stls, 2 asts and a block and a half a game? This is retarded. Everyon eon our team has improved because we have learned how to play as a team. That growth curve would've occured with or without Miles. Secondly, a man who doesn't love basketball doesn't put up those numbers. Third, Miles has bought into McMillan's system completely and hasn't verbally berated, sat out, pouted, been late, missed anything, etc. This kid is finally having his breakout season, and it's not his or the Blazers problem if a few pig-headed individuals out there who feel they have a right to make up stuff in order to stick it to players they do not personally like. And wasn't it Canzano who just a few short weeks ago was pleading for the franchise to sit Miles for the rest of the season to keep this vital cog of the future Blazers healthy for next season. Well, maybe they listened.

Canzano is amazing...TRADE MILES...jordan quick was talking pre-game to tonights games and he said having d-miles back in practice is having an affect on the team and it isnt a good one. Miles is a headcase and always will be. He doesnt fit in with the team... no one likes him and isiah wants his coo-coo attitude. dont be hatin on cazano b/c he's right

No No No!!! Darius is so important to this franchise it isnt even funny. He adds another dimension to our team: a player who can run, post up, and shoot just inside the 3 point line. He has been working hard under McMillan, and he even took the step up to being a leader (something that headcases don't do) early this year when he said he would "punish" the Timberwolves. The most amazing part of that was he followed through with his prediction. He made shots that game, but most importantly he took the ball down low and made the T-Wolves try to stop him, which they couldn't. This guy takes pressure off of Zach Randolph and makes it easier for the rest of the team to score. So i guess Canzano, if you want another 10 years of a youth movement, go ahead and trade Miles. I'm just glad the decision is in the hands of Nash instead of a balding reporter who doesn't know a thing about player evaluation.

Well, i thought about it and i think we shoiuld keep him untill the end of the year then reassess his talent and determination. it is frustrating to see someone with so much potental but no love of the game. If u think Canzano is wrong here he isnt but lets not trade him just yet.
