Need something from Portland? Better hurry, because things are moving fast in Rip City.
The Portland Trail Blazers have fired coach Nate McMillan, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.
McMillan’s dismissal comes one day after the Blazers suffered a 42-point loss to the New York Knicks and on the same day they traded forward Gerald Wallace and center Marcus Camby. After a strong start to the season, Portland has lost seven of its past nine games.
Your new Trail Blazers coach is a guy named Kaleb Canales, who is not a delicious creme-filled dessert. Portland is totally committed to rebuilding, struggling mightily and had turned on McMillan, so his ouster isn’t surprising.
I’m just hoping they put some of those red alternate shorts on clearance because I could use a cheap pair of jammies.
