McCollum, with measurables

CJ isn’t a great athlete. Comparing anyone to Rose and Westbrook’s athleticism will give you the same answer. They were saying in general CJ is lacking. Its the truth. Lillard is a massive...

Taking advantage of Kahn fetishes and fears

We know Kahn has a fetish for all things Portland. We know he fears Olshey will make a run at Restricted Free Agent Nikola Pekovic this offseason, much like Kahn did at Batum last summer. We also...

• In position news, Terry Stotts noted that Nicolas Batum, the starter at small forward, is "probably my first choice as a backup two." Ronnie Price's injury means Nolan Smith is now the primary backup at point to Damian Lillard, which means Smith's minutes at off-guard are now up for grabs. It sounds like Stotts would like to give those minutes to Batum, who played some shooting guard last season, rather than Will Barton, Sasha Pavlovic or Adam Morrison, at least for the time being.

This was on Casey Holdahl's blog. http://blogs.trailblazers.com/BroadcasterProfile/BroadcasterBlog/tabid/188/EntryID/4359/BroadcasterID/4/Default.aspx Not a good idea. I think this is a mistake.

Making the call before the season starts

Blazers pre-deadline trade for Harden.

"Luke Babbitt will be strictly a 'four'."

"Luke Babbitt will be strictly a 'four'."

Listening to Courtside on blazers tv live. I'm surprised Stott is going with this. It's now very crowded at the four. I would find it hard to think that Babbitt would beat out Freeland for minutes there, backing up Aldridge. Could this be a sign that Babbitt is on the ropes? Can the team afford to get rid of such a good shooter, even if he can't play D or do anything, really, besides stand in the corner and wait for the ball?

Lillard: "This man @TonyGaskins is too real. Y'all need to get up on him. He just changed my life. #realrap" Perhaps we will need a new nickname. :)

Time to blow it up?

With Hibbert now likely staying with Indy, I'm proposing we do an all-youth movement with the roster. Time to blow it up. I suggest shipping Batum for D. Williams and a first rounder, and then s...

AMICK HAS UTAH GUNNING FOR LILLARD

Utah has no first-round picks and had been attempting to land one in order to select Weber State point guard Damian Lillard, according to sources, but it's not known if Jazz general manager Kevin O'Connor has made any progress.
