Spain vs Nate McMillan

If Sergio Rodriguez doesn’t get more playing time soon, it might be a bit hard for his coach to travel around Spain in the future: “Journalist friend Quique Peinado from Marca – Spain’s largest newspaper – checked in last week to inform that the newspaper’s website ran a poll asking readers to vote whether Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan doesn’t play Sergio Rodriguez because he has something personal against him. The results … 80 percent voted ‘Yes’. ‘Nate is not the most popular guy in Spain,’ Peinado writes. I asked Sergio about the poll. He laughed loudly. ‘Ah yes, that is the largest paper,’ Sergio said proudly. ‘The poll … I don’t feel that way. Everybody … everybody has feelings. I don’t think he has anything against me.’”

    Sergio then proceeded to slant his eyes and crack a Yao Ming joke…

    …Shortly after making monkey sounds and throwing bananas at Brandon Roy he gets traded to the Raptors for the ghost of Keon Clark.

    Sergio isn’t in Portland’s long-term picture. Although he’s a good guy who likes to pass first, I’m sure he’ll be getting time for another team next season.

    As Z rightly points out, no black man will ever be the most popular man in Spain.

    You’re correct Ryne. Sergio will be moving on for more ticks and dinero.

  • chintao

    Fu(k it. Even thought Nate is not welcome in Spain, he can still go to Mexico. So who cares?

    RuPaul, I’m not sure how much more money Sergio will get because of his lack of PT, but he’ll certainly get the opportunity for more time elsewhere. It’s just too bad there’s no place for him in Portland. He and Rudy are great teammates.
