The Blazers are currently in the midst of a three-game losing streak with three ugly losses in the last week (two of those at home). From under-performing players, poor defense, questionable coaching, and injuries, there are any number of excuses you could argue for the reasons of this atrocious streak of play. The Blazer players have had mental lapses, and their minds are not in the right place.
Here are some of the current distractions that they might be dealing with:
Jerryd has been addicted to blogging recently.
Brandon has been sports car shopping on weekends since signing his new contract.
LaMarcus has been all about his No. 3 ranked Texas Longhorns.
Steve's mind gets lost in a good book.
Rudy is worried about how Sergio is doing in Sacramento.
Andre is perfecting his Richard Pryor look, even getting into stand-up.
