For eight teams in the NBA, this time of May is a celebration of excellence. Teams, even those on the cusp of elimination like the Warriors and Knicks, are receiving high praise for competing for spots in their respective Conference Finals. For an excellent team like the San Antonio Spurs, the month of May is nothing special. Spurs fans expect to make it to the second round, and the team always delivers.
For the Portland Trail Blazers, the month of May is officially vacation season. It's been thirteen years since the Blazers have emerged victorious from the first round of the playoffs. These long years have been bittersweet for the team's fans. The month of May sure has been tough for me.no comments
