Potential Off-Season Trade Targets

It is a great sign for our Portland Trail Blazers, the fact that I am less excited for the off-season than I was for the actual games, for the first time in several years. But, we do need to make...

Oden to Start

5

Greg Oden is starting for the first time since that infamous December 5th, 2009 game. Some really mixed emotions when watching that! We could use a healthy Oden right about now :-)

What if the Blazers were Lord of the Rings Characters?

In honor of the release of The Desolation of Smaug and the Blazers' stellar record, I have decided to release the much anticipated (not!) second edition of the LOTR Portland Trail Blazer rankings...

Can the Blazers Contend? The Upside of the Team

The Blazers COULD be contenders in the Aldridge-Lillard era if things break right for us. A week ago, I made the argument the other teams in the West had enough weaknesses to leave a tiny window...

Can the Blazers Contend? The Rest of the West

Although I did entertain the idea of trading LaMarcus Aldridge, I am not in the all-or-nothing, championship-or-tank camp. Perhaps the only way for the Blazers to win a championship is to luck out...

Melo to Mavs

Who would have seen Melo playing for the Mavericks?... Actually no one cares. I just wanted to see whether you all would misunderstand the headline like I did ;)

Trading LMA: Who are the Potential Trading Partners?

Sparked by a comment in another thread questioning what teams would even give up the kind of assets we would need in an Aldridge trade, I decided to go through and explore. Here is my opinion on...

Potential Trade Targets

I have mixed feelings about our offseason because I thought we needed to either acquire a major piece or trade LaMarcus. We obviously did neither, but we did improve depth and our trade assets are...

Eric Maynor Appreciation Thread

You were not Ronnie Price and certainly an upgrade over Nolan Smith and we only traded some guy named Printezis for you. What more could one ask from a player acquired for 27 games, no playoffs,...

Blazer Trades: Picking up the Pieces for Rebuilding Teams

On Thursday, Boston and Philadelphia made it obvious they are joining the Wiggins and co. sweepstakes. Along with Phoenix as teams they are rebuilding, with pieces remaining that don't fit that...

More Palatable LMA Trades

Well, regurgitated LaMarcus Aldridge trade speculation is in BE news, although "news" isn't really the right word. It's your standard Tristan Thompson and #1fare. Hate to break it to the Cavs and...

Best Realistic Offseason: Asik and Evans? Player Acquisition Drawer

Judging by this year, it seems to me to be successful without a star-laden team, you need a strong defensive presence and/or depth. That brings up a few of the names that are often discussed...

Trading LA, Batum, and Matthews for the Lillard Rebuild

Quite a few trades have been tossed out there involving us sending out LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Batum, and/or Wesley Matthews and rebuilding around Damian Lillard and other young players. While...

NBA Draft Lottery Predictions

As you all know the NBA draft lotto is being held tonight, with Damian Lillard representing the Blazers. Of course, we have had great luck in draft lottos when we are represented by a Rookie of the...

Strong Off-Season: Would Blazers be Contenders?

Common opinion (which is probably correct) is that we are a few years from contention, and that is if things go well for us. Unless of course, we pull off a miracle off-season (Dwight!). But if we...

Al Horford Trade?

The idea that we could trade for Al Horford seems a bit too hopeful as he is one of the better big men in the L. But it might not be waaaaay far fetched. It is not all the unrealistic to think...

Off-Season Plan Drawer: Trade First Edition

Everybody else is doing it.... I like to put up a well-thought (although not always realistic) off-season plan around this time anyway. I know there are never enough couch GMs so for your...

Gortat Trade

Hey Suns' fans! Portland Trail Blazer fan here. I am curious what you guys think about a Gortat trade. I think it is assumed that Phoenix will look to move him because he is towards the end of...

Pre-Season Trade Drawer: Going for the Playoffs
