No Mo Cheeks
"Helping an embarrassed little girl? Don't you know that's against team policy?"
In what must be a devastating blow to his street cred and 'thuggishness', Maurice Cheeks was let go by the Portland Trailgangstas today. Oh well, I guess he just wasn't able to keep up with mental giants like Darius Miles and Damon Stoudamire. Perhaps the Blazers players just got tired of giving Mo the answers to that days New York Times Crossword Puzzle or are looking for a coach who doesn't pretend to know about medieval literature when his knowledge clearly doesn't extend beyond a few quotes of Chaucer. Or maybe it's that he's a legitimately good coach and a nice guy and Portland has spent the last 10 years trying to turn the Rose Garden into the country's only prison without bars.
Of course, the natural fit at this point for Portland would be John 'leader of the goon squad' Chaney...
Hey Ruben Patterson, sweep the leg!!
