W: Blazers 91, Charlotte Bobcats 83

We won! This excellent performance was highlighted by the tiumphant return of team star and leader Darius Miles, who came off the bench and finished with 14 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists. Jarret Jack and Telfair played excellent games, as did Zach Randolph. Ha faired as well as could have been expected in his first NBA start, finishing with 4 rebounds and no points on no shot attempts. Tonight Darius proved he is the all-around leader and the heart and soul of this team. He certainly didn't show any signs of being a team "cancer", all I saw was him consistantly busting his a** the entire time he was in to help this team win, and all though he may not have been feeling 100%, what he lacked physically he made up in effort, determination and sheer desire to lead his team to victory. Can't wait to see this team take off after our entire starting five and center rotation is healthy again!

Very true Ryne, but there's a difference between Darius and Sheed. What Darius showed tonight was heart and the determination to win at all costs. Sheed never showed a sign of that when he was in Portland, thats why he was traded. If Darius shows that kind of effort on a consistant basis, there is no way that there should be any thoughts of trading him.
