Portland Trail Blazers Rumors
On Thursday, Lake Oswego resident Robert Cook, 78, died in what appears to be an accidental drowning in Siltcoos Lake, south of Florence, reports The Register-Guard. Cook is believed to be Dr. Robert Cook, who, according to Portland Trail Blazers spokesperson Michael Lewellen, led the Trail Blazers medical staff starting with the 1975-76 season through the 1979-80 season. He returned to work for the Blazers for one more season in 1990-91.
Allen Crabbe is in China. That’s a long way from his home in California and from the Portland Trail Blazers. He’s over there to do some business, including visiting LeSports Hong Kong—a company that provides users with video services including webcasting, video-on-demand and additional information on football, basketball, tennis, golf and other sports—and the NBA China offices. He’s also there to experience something different, made possible by the roundball. “If it wasn’t for the season that I had, then opportunities like this wouldn’t be possible,” Crabbe says through a crackly phone call from near Hong Kong. “I’m just blessed to be in the position for the types of doors that basketball has opened for me to go to places that I never thought I would be. It’s been an exciting experience.”
