Sure, We'll Take Terry Porter

Bucks fire Porter after worst season in nearly a decade

Terry Porter won't get a chance to use the first pick in next week's NBA draft.

Porter was fired as coach of the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, two months after the team finished its worst season in almost a decade.

So why would I want Porter as coach of the Blazers? Terry Porter was a great competitor and a part of the greatest team Portland ever had. I don't believe his problems in Milwaukee were related to his coaching abilities, so why not bring him to Portland? If he can deal with the platitude-ridden, shifty Portland management, he has a talented group of players to work with. If he can negotiate for control of the team, instead of a micro-managing group of "hands on" people like the amateur personnel director, the team might actually win.

So I say bring on Terry Porter and let him win some games for the Blazers!

Hey, a basketball name even *I* know. Porter was always one of my favorite players, along with Clyde Drexler.

I'll second the notion! Bring 'em on!

At this point, it seems like almost anyone or anything would be better than what the Blazers are stuck with now.

My friend Sherman and I always wanted to develop a show on Fox called "Don't Mess with Terry Porter." Terry would have been a tough guy detective trying to balance life with his family. Would have been huge!

How can you go wrong with Terry Porter? Believe me, the Blazer Head Office will find a way.

Porter could work in Portland. Milwaukee has no talent on that roster. And Porter should be able to summon the support of the crowds against the tomfoolery of the management.

"Don't Mess with Terry Porter" might meet the same fate as Heat vision & Heat. A great idea that never made the small screen.

That would be a cool thing to see.

Oops. I meant Heat Vision and Jack
