Selfish Blazers pushing McMillan out?

10:02 AM ET 03.04 | Nate McMillan was shoved another step closer to the unemployment line on Saturday. Not because of poor coaching decisions. Not because he didn't have a decent game plan to defend Kevin Love. Not because he doesn't badly want to win, and will do anything it takes. In fact, very little of Portland's 122-110 loss to Minnesota was the fault of the Trail Blazers coach. Still, the record shows McMillan as Saturday's biggest loser. And be sure, in the end, it's going to be his head on the platter, served up by a faction of selfish and disgruntled Blazers players who don't give a rip. Said one veteran: "You could spend a day in this locker room and you'd figure it out. Some guys really care. Others just want the season to be over."

I think it would be for the best if Nate McMillan moved on. That team is going downhill with its poor management decisions.

As if things aren't bad enough for Nate, the FN interns couldn't even be bothered to post his picture. Then again, with the expression he's had on his face lately, I suppose they're doing him a favor...
