You be the GM: Trail Blazers 2013-14 edition

1

An Oregonian series I always enjoy after every Blazers season ended. It seems that the starting lineup and the younger bench guys all have very high voting percentages to stay. I also think its funny Robin Lopez has 99%.

Will Barton NBA Draft 2012 - Behind the Scenes

3

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Li4IDV9eWAY

A very inside look at Will Barton during the 2012 NBA Draft. I remember he was projected to be a 1st round pick that year, and you get to actually see his reaction when he fell to the 2nd round. Very interesting watch, hes definitely proving himself to be a capable NBA player.

Mo Williams finally explains his "beef" with Troy Daniels

4

I guess this explains what happened between Mo Williams and Troy Daniels, which is bascially nothing. Just Mo Williams trying to get in the head of Troy Daniels.

Blazers improving from within

+

Havent been a fan of Jason Quick over the years, but this is a good article by him addressing the Blazers bench players and summarizing how they all want to improve to make this team better.

Hickson self-reflects after Blazers get off to hot start

2

A pretty honest interview with Hickson from Chris Haynes. The article is basically Hickson self reflecting on himself to see the Blazers drastic improvement from last year to this year. I personally think Hickson did the best he could with his skillset, Blazers were asking a back up power forward to start at center.

Robinson relieved trade deadline passed without him involved

2

Article by Chris Haynes, Robinson seemed to be really relieved he wasnt traded. Considering what he had to go through, seems normal.

Bill and Jalen's 2nd Birdmester Report, both believe the Blazers are title contenders

4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfPQWq4PqF8

Basically both Bill and Jalen Rose are doing power rankings of teams this season so far and this video is the top half of the teams. Blazers are put in "the contenders" category with the Thunder, Spurs and Pacers.

Kurt Thomas looking for a contender?

2

This is not too serious of a post, but I wanted to put this link out there because the Blazers frontcourt depth has been lacking from time to time. Just looking at some options out there. And I also wonder if he and other players see the Blazers as a legit contending team.

Lillard in the clutch

+

Some stats and analysis about Lillard in the clutch by Brent Barry. Starts at about 5:31 of the video, Lillard is already proving to be one of the most clutch players in the entire NBA

Wright to use championship ring to motivate teammates

1

Article on Wright comparing the Miami Heat championship team he was on to the current Blazers team. The fact that the Blazers have set their standard to champions is really cool to see

Blazers not content with 3-1 road trip

2

I love this article from Chris Haynes, even with wins, guys like Aldridge and Matthews are not satisfied how they win. The Blazers locker room culture is definitely changing for the better

A video from the official Trail Blazers youtube channel with Tone asking and following around McCollum on being a rookie in the NBA and being a part of the Blazers.

Nice aricle by Marc J Spears on Aldridge's improved leadership

Freedom, chemistry behind Trail Blazers’ early success

+

A nice article on the Blazers recent success that includes some statistics.

Mo Williams, 6th man of the year?

2

Mo Williams said a goal of his is to win 6th man of the year. Im not sure if he can do it, but it sounds like Williams can come off the bench and cause problems for other team's 2nd units.

Lamarcus Aldridge Blazer's commercial

1

A Blazers commercial by Aldridge that was recently posted on the official Blazers youtube channel.

Sabonis Throwdown

+

A nice short article about the obvious improvement of the Blazers bench from last season to this upcoming season that includes some statistics and some quotes from Lillard. Nice off-season reading

Blazers interested in... Ian Clark?

5

I dont know who this player is, but apparently the Blazers are interested in him. It would be an interesting move if the Blazers did pick up another guard.

McCollum determined to keep climbing higher with Blazers

+

An article by David Aldridge on C.J. McCollum, a pretty good offseason read. Im excited to have McCollum on the Blazers, I really did think he would be taken by either Detroit or Minnesota by the Blazers pick.

Joel Freeland and his new team role

13

Joel Freeland is trying to change his role on the team into more of a Nick Collison role, specifically described as a quote from this article as "set screens, play solid help defense, rebound, draw fouls and communicate on the floor."

Withey didnt expect to be drafted by the Blazers

+

Apparently the Blazers never contacted Withey or invited him to workouts, but I guess the Blazers end up drafting him anyway because of his talent and he was still available for only a 2nd round pick.
