Shaking a Bad Rep

Henry at TrueHoop is pretty angry over continued use of the JailBlazer moniker by sports reporters, fans and bloggers, despite the complete makeover the team has had over the past 1 1/2 years.

He's right - the JailBlazers of 2001 have been scattered around the league, with one of the "bad seeds" landing here in Sacramento. But it's tough to expect a nation of hoops fans to forget a pretty damning era of tomfoolery and criminal hijinks just like that.

The best way to shake it? Call people on it (like Henry and his readers have been doing for months), and hope that the TrailBlazers stay out of trouble. There's not much else a fan can do.

The Sacramento Kings are a tough act to follow, literally.

SKB does the dirty work so you can forget about the blood, sweat and tears.

Oh, you'll still need the tears in April, though.
