Best Blazer watching spots?

I recently moved to the NE area (Alberta Arts district, specifically), and am looking for a local go-to spot. Any suggestions? Also, feel free to throw out any and all in Portland, because I'm...

Sad day for BBall fans. TBJ posts it's last post.

That bums me out. They were my second favorite blog...right after Bleacher Report. I kid, I kid.

We should pick this dude up. Not literally, as him being 7' 2", 265lbs, he is quite a heavy human. Sign him to the roster, rather. He averaged 4 rbs and 1 block in 10 minutes last year, not bad. Fills a need, for sure.

Right across from the Rose Garden, the "PortLAnd's All Star" billboard (previously featuring an image of Lamarcus Aldridge) has been taken down. Who wants to bet it's replaced by a picture of LA, Lillard, Leonard and Batum (maybe Matthews/Barton) and a slogan saying something either "Rise With Us"ish or "Please, Please, Please Renew Your Season Tickets"?

Blazer game that was supposed to be on tonight, replaced by *GASP* Law and Order!

1
Deadspin's knocked out some TV Guide action recently, noting "Instead of seeing the Blazers visit Time Warner Cable Arena, basketball fans in Charlotte will be treated to back-to-back Law and Order: SVU episodes, followed by a Tyler Perry's House of Payne doubleheader." Obviously these lockout negotions needed some law and order, but this is just cruel irony for cruel irony's sake. I feel like everyone's unit is a special victim...as it seems that the NBA's got everyone from players to network's commercial sales earnings to arena workers by the balls. As for Tyler Perry, I need not make any jokes. For shame, NBA.

NBA 2K12 Blazers vs. Jazz

Alright, I watched this video 2-beers-deep and on my iPhone. I'll be darned if it didn't enhance the realism! I suggest it! On some delusional level, I felt like I was watching what was supposed to be the season-opener. In the opening play, after Oden wins the tip, Felton dishes to Matthews on the 3pt line. He tosses it in to Aldridge who tries to post up and settles for a fade-away 2...just like the real Blazers would do! Muy bueno! They then proceed to miss the next 4 shots...just like the real Blazers would do, too! Que suerte! #whatlockout? (Sorry, I can't get to the embed code on my phone so I had to just link it.)

Apparently Steve Blake likes lowbrow comedy. ("My Story")

FYI, this story is largely anti-climactic, but it's the lockout and who are you to judge me? Alright. Last night, a few friends and I went to see Dave Attell do his thing at the Helium Comedy Club....

Via Deadspin: an awesome video of the Timbers Army as Perlaza knocks it up to 2-0 against the Galaxy on Wednesday at Jeld Wen. For those of us not lucky enough to go to a game (yet still lucky enough to catch the games on TV), seeing a thousand arms raised in the air on-cue is quite the spectacle to behold.

Since everyone likes to post William Shatner's obligatory "KAAAAAHHHNN!!!" in any thread mentioning Timberwolves President David Kahn, here's a video of The Shat himself leading a crowd of 3,000+ people today at Comic-Con in one of his famous "KAAAAAHHHHNNN!!!!"s. Enjoy.

Capital Punishment Summer League Game

1

This isn't Blazers news (sadly, none of our boys are participating), but it is basketball news. That's right, an actual game of basketball is actually going to be played between 2 actual teams made of mostly actual NBAers. Big names like Kevin Durant, Michael Beasley, Tyreke Evans and John Wall (among others) facing off against the likes of JaVale McGee, James Harden, Brandon Jennings and DeMar DeRozan (among others). Competing Pro-Am Summer Leagues, the Goodman League vs. Drew League game is awesomely-titled Capital Punishment (in your face, Stern!) and will take place on August 20th, 2011. Supposedly to be streamed live here. Basketball? I forgot what it's like to watch you.

Pickin' in the first round. Trading' in the back seat. Gotta make my mind up. Which pick can I take? It's Draft Day, Draft Day. Gotta get down on Draft Day. Everybody's lookin' forward to next season, season. Draft Day, Draft Day. And so on...

Lucas Nogueira, an 18y/o, 7', 225lb center out of Brazil. Ziller says he's like "Johan Petro with long braids." Why it's alright for a 7 footer to weigh 10lbs less than me while being 7" taller than me, I don't know. 7.5' wingspan, though. Draft Express / YouTube Idk, never heard of him. Thoughts?

Oden wants to go to Miami?

108

John Lund reported on 750am at about 1pm today that he has it from "a very reliable NBA source" that Oden wants to go to Miami after his contract with the Blazers is up. "Reported" is questionable. Says Lund: "A very reliable NBA source tells me that while Greg Oden is open to signing his $8.8M qualifying offer and rehabbing his knee with the Blazers next season, his preferred destination is with the Miami Heat. The rationale is that the only way he'll stop being compared to Kevin Durant is to win 3 or 4 rings while playing caddy alongside the big 3." Sounds like Canzano-esque journalism to me. "Journalism" is also questionable. ***Update: Found the actual link and added a snippet of his quote. Click and scroll down to "#1" for his full comment.

Utilizing the entire seat, not just the [Blazer's]edge.

G'day Blazer fans.   Now, I love the Blazers as much as you do.   When the season starts, I want to be on the edge of my seat for all the good reasons; i.e. clutch plays, awesome comebacks,...
