Matt Steinmetz unimpressed with Blazers

Steinmetz' reviews of the Northwest Division teams includes this summary of the Blazers: The next big thing: OK, here they are, the great Portland Trail Blazers. They're the next world-beaters, or so everyone is saying. Living up to pressure isn't easy, and it's even harder when you're trying to do it as a young team. Which would be most of the Portland team. Let's give them a few years. Sounds like Matt's been spending too much time on Blazers Edge...

Josh Howard, good guy

Wow, one apology and suddenly he stops looking like Sheed and starts looking like a good kid who made a mistake.

David Thorpe works-out Sacto's Kevin Martin

Now that Ron Artest and Mike Bibby are gone, K-Mart is The Man on the Kings. Sam Amick of The Sacramento Bee provides an in-depth look at the relationship between a top private coach and players like Martin who are motivated to improve their games. Are any Blazers doing anything like this?

Sportsline.com has three Blazers in Top 30

24. Brandon Roy, Portland: Few players can give you all the things Roy can. He can score for you, run your offense if need be and pick up some rebounds along the way. And there's a nasty streak under the surface. 27. Greg Oden, Portland: We have yet to see Greg Oden play in an NBA game. Still, if the scouting reports are correct and he can in fact rebound, defend and block shots, then that makes him one of the game's best centers. 29. LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland: Even without Oden by his side, Aldridge has been effective for the Blazers. If you match up against Aldridge with a center, he'll face you up on the perimeter. If you match up against Aldridge with a smaller player, he'll go down to the block.

Von Wafer Killing in the ATL!

LIGHTS OUT: The spies around the Hawks’ practice court the past few weeks have proclaimed free agent swingman Von Wafer the most lethal shooter of the summer, with retired former Hawks’ sniper Tony Delk right on his heels. Wafer reportedly won a game by himself last week - he scored every single point as his team shutout the opposition, which is a frightening shooting display in any venue. Thanks to Henry at True Hoop for the heads-up.

Sam Smith Q&A on MSNBC.com: Q: Will the acquisition of Jerryd Bayless and the signing of Rudy Fernandez, along with a healthy Greg Oden, make Portland a dominant force in the Western Conference? — Adam Bray, Reidsville, N.C. A: It could. Summer league means nothing. Less than nothing. Nothing that ever has happened there has mattered. But Bayless has looked very good and the way Brandon Roy pretty much plays point guard in the fourth quarter means Bayless could play with him and they wouldn't need a classic point guard. Obviously, a healthy Oden is the key and no one has seen him play yet. I'd say dominant for next season is a little premature given their youth, but perhaps in a season or two. You have to like their team.

The Blazers should draft for need

When is enough enough?

I have a Blazers Edge t-shirt. The back reads: "2007-2008: Who steps up? 2008-2009: Which free agent? 2009-2010: What's your ring size?!" We Blazer fans seem to think that's pretty accurate. If so,...

Move the Blazers back into the Pacific Division?

If the Sonics move and the Northwest division gets realigned, the Blazers could end up in the Pacific. That would put us back in touch with our truest rival, the Lakers.
