Blazers Fire Cho

Sorry, this has nothing to do with beer, but I had to get it off my chest. I just learned that the Portland Trailblazers have fired their general manager, Rich Cho. Cho replaced Kevin Pritchard, by all accounts one of the best executives in the league, purportedly because the Blazers' owner, Paul Allen, didn't like the attention he was receiving. Paul Allen just wrote a book in which he complains he didn't get the credit he deserved in co-founding Microsoft. And now he's fired a GM who was doing a credible job of replacing one of the best executives in the NBA because of a "chemistry" problem.

In other words, Paul Allen has become the Al Davis of the NBA.
