The Rasheed Wallace sweepstakes have ended, at least for the regular season, and the questions that are most prominent are where will he end up and did Portland get enough in return?

The long PR nightmare for the Blazers finally has begun to subside, somewhat, and that should make several people within the organization happy. It was important for them to get the focus away from the off-court problems and back to the team's on-court performance. Of course, they have had extremely disappointing results there, as well. You can argue the on-court failures are equally, if not more, disappointing, especially when you look at the luxury tax Paul Allen had to pay out over the past couple of years.
