Portland Trail Blazers – Salvation Lies Within

If you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse.  The Portland Trail Blazers didn’t have a draft pick, lacked the cap space to add a significant free agent, and the ones they did bring in are more glue than substance.  But this team’s future success isn’t dependent on outside talent, but more so on the current […]

Portland Trail Blazers Summer League Observations

It has been a quiet offseason for the Portland Trail Blazers after their powerful playoff run.  Many of the issues for the team involve keeping their stars intact.  The biggest being LaMarcus Aldridge who reportedly agreed to a contract extension on July 8th, though he will not sign the extension until next year. While Portland […]

Trail Blazers Introduce Chris Kaman and Steve Blake

Portland Trail Blazers & The Wild Wild West Offseason

The 2013-14 NBA season ended in very dramatic fashion, and the offseason has become almost equally entertaining. Eight Western Conference teams entered the playoffs last year, and while none of them have made wholesale changes, they each at least tried to make a big splash, several of them landing at least one big-name free agent, […]

LeBron Returns Home, What About LaMarcus Aldridge?

LeBron is staying.  All is well in Cleveland.  But while Cleveland rejoices in the return of their king, Portland and Oregonians interested in the Blazers and their star, LaMarcus Aldridge, are sitting on unsettled ground regarding the future of the lifelong Blazer they’re hoping will actually be lifelong … and the 8-year veteran from Texas […]

Have The Portland Trail Blazers Improved This Offseason?

Amidst all the headline news of LeBron James and his eventual return home to Cleveland, there was actually some other things going on around the NBA, believe it or not.  What I want to talk about is the loss of Mo Williams and the signing of both Chris Kaman and Steve Blake. These moves in […]

Checking In With The Portland Trail Blazers Offseason

Free agency has gotten off to a slow start this summer. Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James have yet to make their respective decisions, and that seems to be holding everything up. Once they decide where they will sign, everything else will fall into place for the rest of the NBA. Free Agency With the Portland […]

Five Reasons I Want To Hang Out With @ChrisKaman

Over the Holiday weekend, the Portland Trail Blazers unexpectedly signed former All-Star Center Chris Kaman. After pursuing Spencer Hawes when free agency began there were various names linked to the Blazers’ pursuit of a backup big man; Hawes, Channing Frye, Josh McRoberts, Boris Diaw. Then, as it usually goes down, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports […]

If You Had To Choose … Wesley Matthews Or Nicolas Batum

For the average person, Summer time is what you wait for all year, especially in the Pacific Northwest. The rain finally stops, and the sun comes out from its painfully long 9-month vacation, allowing for many opportunities to get outside and spend time with loved ones while soaking it in for these amazing months of […]

2014 NBA Mock Draft – Jabari Parker Is The Safe #1 Pick

Here we are again, NBA Draft Day! This is one of my favorite days of the year. This year tends to be a little more anti-climactic because of the lack of draft picks here in Rip City. Portland is a team that builds around the draft picks and they have done a fairly good job […]

Portland Trail Blazers Draft Guide – Big Men

The center position has plagued the team for years and years. Finally, this past off-season, General Manager Neil Olshey struck gold with Robin Lopez. Lopez was an absolute perfect fit for Portland. He is young enough to have prime years left. He is old enough to be a well-rounded center. He is weird enough to […]

Damian Lillard – As Far As He Takes Us

Portland has had its fair share of notable NBA figures pass through here. Maybe you think back to the 1977 championship team when Bill Walton and Maurice Lucas dominated the paint and brought the original Larry O’ Brien trophy to the Rose City. Maybe you think about the Clyde “The Glide” Drexler era when he, […]

Portland Trail Blazers Draft Guide – Wings

Will Barton started to show flashes of brilliance towards the end of the season. If he can build and continue off of that, the Portland Trail Blazers will have an athletically fascinating player to play the wing, off the bench. Add CJ McCollum and Allen Wright into the mix and you are looking pretty decent […]
