I guess Felton and Crawford won that war, assuming this is true:


EDIT: Here's the story:

    Blazers fire Nate McMillan as coach

    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.

    Assistant coach Kaleb Canales has been named the Blazers’ interim coach, the source said. Canales, 34, worked in the team’s video department from 2005-09 before being promoted to assistant coach.

    McMillan joined the Blazers before the 2005-06 season after five seasons as coach of the Seattle SuperSonics. He went 266-269 in seven seasons in Portland.

I didn't realize the Blazers were a total mess until they came to MSG and made the Knicks look good. I grew up a Sonics fan, so I am down with Nate. What was the internal war about?

If I'm the Knicks I call Nate right away.

I was thinking through the D'Antoni thread that he'd be a great fit for Portland, but I don't think I mentioned it because I didn't think the Blazers would pull the plug on McMillan. Shows what I know.

Nate for D'Antoni would be an interesting swap.

Also the Greg Oden era has ended Click Here (espn.go.com). I feel for the guy, he seems like a good person it would have been nice to see him play one or two seasons, but the body just isn't going to cooperate.
