Steven Adams is the answer

The 7 foot 'Kiwi Phenom' is apparently entering his name into the 2013 Draft: Well that was fast, thanks for coming Steven Adams. Pitt announces he declares for NBA draft. — Andy Katz...

CP3 Open to a trade

Via ESPN So long as NO is commited to winning he's happy...maybe he see's a development-type coach, lots of young talent and sees the writing on the wall. CP3 to PDX dream is still on life support!

Mo Williams?

Note down the bottom saying we are strongly pursuing him. Anyone but him. Seriously.

NBA.com Draft Preview

Lots of discussion of Greg - thought Lawrence Frank had a good take on it.

Oden Quotes

Via Marc Spear's Twitter. Encouraging stuff about being motivated and confident. Also like the admission that injuries were a concern (not just saying he's unlucky) and his improved attitude to fixing the problem.

Best #6 pick of all time!!

Brandon getting some serious love. Beat out Adrian Dantley and Antoine Walker for the spot! Oh and Larry Bird....

NBA Jam

Time to vote! Blazers are the second team down. No Bayless or Batum......

Oden Awards Watch 2010

All of this discussion and excitement surrounding Mr. Oden recently has got me to thinking, what recognition can we justifiably expect for the big fella? There has been prolonged discussion about...

Is this worth linking?

I've never seen BE referenced on ESPN so I thought it was kinda cool to see....

"Even when we make runs, it doesn't feel like we're fully comfortable with how things are going. I...

"Even when we make runs, it doesn't feel like we're fully comfortable with how things are going. I don't know, I think some guys may feel like they're in and out of the game and I'm noticing it doesn't feel like they're totally comfortable." - Brandon Roy From Joe Freeman's "Blazers Notebook"

Martell Makes the Top 10 Again

Clocks in at number 9 for his jam over Thomas. Martell is back. Like all the way back.

Oden the Defensive Leader?

Making a habit of linking O-live stuff here but in this case I think its entirely justified. I don't want to board the hype train but to me if this is true and continues then it is far more important than how many point or boards or blocks he gets......he could be the catalyst for this team to become a defense first squad. How epic could that shift be in the evolution of this team?

"Did you see last night? I tweeted last night that somebody needs to release a poster of Greg Oden...

"Did you see last night? I tweeted last night that somebody needs to release a poster of Greg Oden squinting at the Jumbo-tron to see how many fouls he has. Because that is all that his career is right now. But, he went to the line and they were down one with like six seconds left. You could tell by the look on his face that he was just going to brick them and he did brick them. The weird thing is that he is just not that good. It not like he isn’t healthy, it is just if you watch him . . . I have Clippers season tickets and the Clippers have a back up center named DeAndre Jordan, and I watch Oden and the whole time I think, is this guy better than DeAndre Jordan? I can’t even tell. I don’t think he, from what I have seen, I don’t think he will ever even make an All-Star team. Pretty unbelievable." From a Bill Simmons interview with WEEI. Just what you'd expect. Has Simmons ever heard of something called defense? Or the fact that it is valuable?

Quick Podcast

If you go to about 15:00 in there is some serious hate coming from JQ towards Ben and his charting of Odens touches. Apparently even some coming from Nate as well. Interesting.....seemed very defensive.

Behind the Locker Room Door

Well worth a read. Oden, Blake will start. Przy buying into being a top flight backup - thinks Miller will do the same. Brandon challenging second unit to try and be game-changing. Awesome stuff.

Blazers Streaming info

Looks like its for Oregon and Washington only. No options for people overseas or elsewhere in the US. To be expected but still disappointing.

Pops is gone

Verbal agreement with the Rockets. Guess we're all out of decent banger pf options now. Guess its the Inferno or bust

Iguodala draft day deal??

Having a hard time believing this but if it was there I really hope it wasn't the Blazers that turned it down. Would have been a move that makes us contenders now and for the next 5+ years.

Bayless=Brown?!?

I may be making the fatal mistake of falling too in love with statistical similarities but looking at this combined with their physical similarities plus comments about both being sg's stuck in a pg's body made me start to worry - so I thought I'd share so you can all put my mind at ease!!

Interesting Article on Claver and Freeland

From late last year - provides interesting insight into Claver and Freeland's development. Nice props to KP at the end, kinda funny in light of the fact he now has the guy who was the focus of the article as well!!
