Introducing Portland’s New Sixth Man: CJ McCollum

4

When the Blazers drafted CJ McCollum with the 10th pick in the 2013 draft, it was hard for me and many other Blazers fans not to expect him to perform much like Damien Lillard did in his ROY campaign last season, enticed as we were by McCollum’s impressive statistics from his Junior year at LeHigh last season: 31.0 MPG, 23.9 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 2.9 APG, 1.4 SPG, 0.3 BPG, 2.7 TPG, 49.5% FG, 51.6% 3FG, 84.9% FT.

ESPN debates: Who should be ranked higher: Andrea Bargnani or Brandon Roy?

7

J.A. Adande, ESPN.com: As wobbly as Roy's knees are, he showed he still has something left with that 18-point fourth quarter in Game 4 of the Dallas series. That's as many points as Bargnani has ever scored in a playoff game. Give me a guy who can take over in the postseason.

"I feel fit, I'm confident in my foot again and I feel like my conditioning is good so hopefully I'm not too far away, I've just got to put in the hard yards and wait for the call."

Early SPM-Projected 2009-10 Standings

Mind you, this is a completely automated projection system -- no human bias was introduced at any point... SPM was developed through a regression on adjusted plus/minus, I used the method described here to project SPM in 2010, last year's average rookie values of -1.56 SPM and 989 minutes were plugged for all 2010 rookies, a regression equation was used to project minutes played (MP_Y = 398.1 + 0.637*MP_Y-1 + 0.102*MP_Y-2 - 0.023*MP_Y-3), wins were calculated by (W = 40.9 + 2.68*EffDiff), and ESPN's depth charts were used for current rosters. Perfect.

NBA Insider: Miller will make point in Portland

8

LAS VEGAS -- The reviews around the league for the Trail Blazers' acquisition of Andre Miller are generally positive. "It's going to help them out a lot," Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant said. "He and Brandon Roy in the backcourt together? I was just telling my brother the other day, 'That's going to be a monster.'"

Miller was McMillan's target

A couple of leftover thoughts about the Trail Blazers' signing of free agent Andre Miller ... Making McMillan happy As everybody knows, Andre Miller was not the Blazers first choice in the free agent market. But from Day 1 of the offseason, he was the No. 1 choice of coach Nate McMillan.

A sad day For Sixers fans.
