    Hey B. Roy, you might want to check the history of your team. I recall a former trailblazers by the name of Ruben Paterson, who claimed he was the “Kobe Stopper?” Oh boy (roy) you’re gonna be in for a ride with the black mamba that you’ll never forget

    he never said he was the kb stopper…if anything he recognized kb as being deadly and himself not as deadly…still showing respect…

    Let them say what they want, either way it goes 0-8 or not, its a whole new season. Playoffs, Lakers are a whole different animal now! There hungry, and FYI mambas can be canibals, so i think this black mamba is going to eat portland up!
