OT: Could Donald Sterling have leaked the audio himself?

OK, folks, its tinfoil hat time. Right now, folks are assuming that somebody out to get Clippers owner Donald Sterling was the source of the leaked audio in which Sterling said a whole bunch of...


Rick Adelman appreciation thread

Lost in all the hubbub over last night's win against the Rockets is the announcement this morning that former Blazers' coach Rick Adelman is retiring from basketball. It's been nearly twenty...


ESPN #nbarank--the Blazers so far (Updated 7X)

We had a bit of a lull as there were no Blazers listed after Robin Lopez at #128, until today. Expect this post to be updated as more players are revealed (the list is up to #57 as I write this). ...

Blazers signing Richard Howell?


RealGM is reporting that the Trail Blazers have signed former NC State star Richard Howell to a "partially guaranteed" contract, despite having 15 players with guaranteed deals. The report comes from Howell's agent, I have not seen any confirmation from the team.


Nolan Smith Appreciation Thread

Someone has to write one, I suppose. As Ben notes in the main page, Nolan Smith has signed with a Croatian team. While his departure from the Blazers was a foregone conclusion--there were 15...


Big-A** Sandwiches to buy Rose Garden naming rights

via Today, Portland Trail Blazers president Chris McGowan announced that the team had sold naming rights to the Rose Garden arena to Big-A** Sandwiches, a local food cart...

Thomas Tyner de-commits from Oregon


Normally, Oregon recruiting news wouldn't merit mention here, except that Aloha HS stud running back Thomas Tyner is the same fellow that was originally considering OSU, watched the Beavs lose last year to Sac State, and turned to the Ducks instead. No embarassing loss by the Ducks to explain this latest reversal by Tyner. As the Ducks are in the thick of the NC hunt, and have been the dominant program in the Pac-12 (though OSU may have something to say about that), this is interesting. Perhaps it's for non-athletic reasons; perhaps he simply wants to check out other programs. But 'tis curious. At any rate, if he does visit UCLA, there's only nine more Pac-12 schools to go...


Expanding the basketball events at the Olypmics

Since the 2012 Summer Games are upon us, and since the Blazers are quite will represented at the games (Nicolas Batum, Victor Claver, and Joel Freeland are competing for their respective national...

Raymond Felton Good Riddance Thread


Done as a fanshot because he doesn't deserve a fanpost.


Larry Miller Appreciation Thread

Larry has long been a bit of a controversial figure--the past few years of his tenure were marked by quite a bit of disappointment for Blazer fans, and more than a lot of organizational...


The Great 2012 Free-For-All BlazersEdge mock draft

For some reason, BlazersEdge has not organized a mock draft this year, like it has done in years past. The format that the site has traditionally used--with individual readers signing up to be...


Would You Do This Trade?

Back in 2007, when Portland won the draft lottery and their choice of Greg Oden and Kevin Durant, one of the rumors floating about was that the Spurs called up Kevin Pritchard and offered Tim...



The Blazers' position of most dire need, obviously, is point guard. Raymond Felton was a disaster, and is gone. Jamal Crawford isn't a PG, and needs a team with a strong locker room culture to...


BREAKING: Neil Olshey fired as Blazers GM

Multiple Portland media sources are reporting that the Portland Trail Blazers have fired general manager Neil Olshey, only hours after he was hired as the team's tenth general manager. In a hastily...


A Letter To Paul

Dear Paul, May I call you that? I don't know you, of course, but I'm a big fan of your team. Many of the people who work for you refer to you as "Mr. Allen" when speaking publicly; I've no idea...


Blazers as Deron Williams kingmakers

Ken Berger, writing for CBS Sports, oes an excellent analysis of how teams are positioned in free agency, noting that the talent level drops off after Deron Willams--all the other free agents...

Joe Avezzano dies


Former OSU football coach Joe Avezzano has died of a heart attack, the Oregonian reports.

Jared Cunningham to test NBA draft?


Andy Katz of ESPN is reporting that Oregon State guard Jared Cunningham intends to "test" the NBA draft--putting his name in the ring to see if he might be drafted. He's not committing to the pros at this point, or doing anything yet that would imperil his NCAA eligibility. A bit of advice to Jared: Consider the career of ex-OSU DB Brandon Browner. He's done well in the NFL, making the Pro Bowl as an injury replacement, but his career path through the pros was no doubt hindered by his decision to come out early. He went undrafted and played some in the CFL before (and also suffered an injury) before finally sticking with an NFL team.


What if lightning strikes?

Since winning the 2007 lottery, the Blazers have hit a streak of incredible bad luck. (And bad decisions). Two franchise-caliber players lost to injury. Quite a few poor draft choices. And...


On the firing of coaches

As I write this, the New York Knicks are whipping the Blazers at Madison Square Garden. I'm not watching the debacle, but I do check Twitter and ESPN from time to time. The big news items today...

Dick Harter dies


Former U of O head basketball coach, and Trail Blazers' assistant coach Dick Harter has died at the age of 81. RIP.


The Art of Rebuilding

The Blazers, to say the least, are at a crossroads. In the past several years, the team has lost once franchise player to injury, with another potential franchise player not getting on the court...


And So It Begins

A couple months ago, I did a post outlining a worst-case scenario for the NBA.  In it, the league splits into several different divisions, roughly based on market size--with the top-drawer talent...

ESPN Top 500: Z-Bo #20


In a selection which should cause some debate here in Portland, ex-Blazer Zach Randolph comes in at #20 on the ESPN Top 500, three spots higher than the guy who replaced him at the PF position in Portland. (And for those keeping score at home, Garnett was #22, Tum Duncan #19, and none of Amare Stoudemire, Blake Griffin, Dirk Nowitzki, Pau Gasol, or Kevin Love have been mentioned yet--which would suggest that the folks polled for the survey consider LMA to be the 9th best PF in the league, unless you prefer to think of Gasol and/or Duncan as centers, in which case he's 7th).

ESPN: Blazers F Gerald Wallace Ranked No. 48 In Top 500


Portland Trail Blazers forward Gerald Wallace comes in at No. 48 in's Top 500 NBA players list. Previous Blazers listed are here, here, here, here, here and here. Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge is the last remaining notable member of the Blazers yet to be listed. ed: bumped to front page

ESPN: Blazers G Raymond Felton, C Marcus Camby Rank In Top 80


Portland Trail Blazers guard Raymond Felton checks in at spot No. 80 and Blazers center Marcus Camby sits at No. 74 in's Top 500 NBA players list. Former Blazers guard Andre Miller ranked No. 89. Previous Blazers listed are here, here, here and here. ed: bumped to front page

ESPN Top 500: Andre Miller number #89


In ESPN's Top 500 countdown, former Blazer PG Andre Miller comes in at #89. The guy he was traded for, Raymond Felton, has not been mentioned yet, so it's safe to assume he's anywhere between #1 and #87. (#88 has been announced at the time of this writing, and it's Chris Kaman).

ESPN: Blazers C Greg Oden Ranks No. 184 On Top 500 NBA Players List

15 continues to unveil its ranking of the top 500 NBA players. Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden checks in at No. 184. Former Blazers Jerryd Bayless (No. 195), Joel Przybilla (No. 198), Jarrett Jack (No. 214) and Martell Webster (No. 231), Steve Blake (No. 241) and Travis Outlaw (No. 271) have also recently been added. Previous Blazers listed are here and here. ed: bumped to front page

AWoj: Adelman takes Wolves job despite David Kahn
