The Portland Trailblazers have written a code of conduct for their players. Chapter three in the Portland Trailblazers code of conduct: “Always remember to say thank you to the officer who hands you a tissue to wipe away the fingerprint ink.”

Baker has led a last place team into - as of this writing - first place while weathering many injuries and Sosa’s cork episode.
