Nets Lose Lopez For Season

8

Brook Lopez broke his fifth metatarsal in his right foot. Isn't this the same injury that CJ McCollum suffered in training camp? "The Brooklyn Nets have lost Brook Lopez for the remainder of the season with a broken foot, a league source has confirmed. Lopez broke the surgically-repaired right foot that he fractured in 2011 and later had a screw replaced in. He is believed to have suffered the injury sometime in the second half of Brooklyn's loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night. Lopez played 44 minutes, including many with the injury. The Nets discovered the injury after the game when Lopez underwent X-rays on his troublesome foot." Via Ohm Youngmisuk/ESPN

Source: Blazers Identified As 'Wild Card' For Omer Asik

The Portland Trail Blazers have been identified as the 'Wild Card' team in on a trade for Omer Asik, a league source told RealGM's Andrew Perna. The Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers are also pursuing a trade with the Houston Rockets for Asik, according to a report on Tuesday by Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski. Wojnarowski added that there was an unidentified 'Wild Card' team. The Blazers have had an excellent start to the season and the main thing holding them back from pulling the trigger on a deal for Asik are concerns about chemistry. Via Andrew Perna/RealGM

Red Out? Anyone know if it's a Red Out against Dallas tonight? Thunder and other teams have done it for both home games with their respective colors. Why can't the Trailblazers show respect to the fans and appreciation of unity among the fans and team with a Red out? Didn't happen last year and doubt it will happen tonight.

Not sure why this hasn't been brought up for last night or if we meet the Oklahoma City Thunder in the playoffs, but in the 4th quarter with the game close is a good strategy to " Hack A Perkins "?...

" What if Portland had taken Kevin Durant over Greg Oden? Here's what we knew about Oden heading into the 2007 Draft: owned Ewing-like potential as a rebounder and shotblocker … struggled with a broken wrist during his freshman year at Ohio State … only played one "Wow!" game (the '07 NCAA Championship: 25 points, 12 rebounds, 4 blocks in defeat against Florida's Joakim Noah and Al Horford) … his right leg was one inch longer than his left leg (a red flag for potential knee/feet/back issues) … openly admitted that he didn't love basketball and once wanted to become a dentist … frightened everyone in Portland with a jittery pre-draft workout … looked and walked like a thirty-six-year-old man. Meanwhile, Durant lived and breathed basketball, became a national phenomenon during his only Texas season, crushed his Portland workout and had no conceivable offensive ceiling. Throw in Portland's tortured history with fragile centers and, as the years pass, it's becoming harder to fathom that the Blazers willingly decided, "Screw the sure thing, let's take the big guy with uneven legs who played one great college game." But that's what they did. Because we love revising history over time, owner Paul Allen and then-general manager Kevin Pritchard have been protected by the "Come on, anyone would have taken Oden, you always take a franchise center, it's not their fault he keeps getting injured" defense. That presumes Oden was considered a sure thing -- like Kareem, Ewing or Hakeem -- and ignores those six months everyone spent wondering about him before the 2007 Draft. Like me, Boston GM Danny Ainge liked Durant as the top pick for one reason: Durant was the sure thing, not Oden. If you followed Durant in college (and Ainge fell head over heels for him, as did I), you knew about his work ethic, leadership, character and scoring DNA. I thought Durant was a genetic freak: like Tracy McGrady crossed with Plastic Man, someone God created to make baskets and get to the line. Oden left you hoping he stayed healthy, hoping basketball would become more important to him, hoping his spotty college year wasn't an aberration, hoping he developed a low-post game and a killer instinct … for a sure thing, you sure were doing a lot of hoping. How was that any different than the Bowie/Jordan dilemma 23 years earlier? When Durant became the youngest scoring champ ever and placed second in the 2010 MVP balloting -- as Oden recovered from his second season-ending knee injury, no less -- Portland's decision barreled into the "What If" chapter six years earlier than expected. So what if the Blazers picked Durant instead of Oden? They become the fledgling Western Conference juggernaut of the 2010s (not Oklahoma City); Portland becomes a legitimate 2010 destination for LeBron; any successfully unconventional decision would be called "a Pritchard"; and everyone in Portland would be so perpetually happy that it would never rain there again. Instead, we have to start bracing for the 2029 or 2030 Draft, when Portland wins another lottery and finds itself stressing between Sure Thing Potential Superstar Scorer X over Possibly Fragile Franchise Center X as everyone else wonders, "Wait a second, we're doing this again?" One of these generations, the Blazers will get it right. "

Can someone who is video editing inclined put together a video for Blazers Fans...Which shows who pulls the team together during droughts in the past 2 years or at least this year? I see Armon and Matthews doing it and Brandon is never on the court...I never see Brandon doing it like he was when he was trying to be the leader over Randolph. Does Brandon or LMA ever pull the team and bark at them? Havent seen it in awhile from Brandon and LMA his bark is more of a chihuaua. Why are Armon and Matthews the one to bring the team together? Is it because they are not concerned about coach replacement and more with bringing the team together? Is Nate's lack of contract hurting this team rather and have we lost the true voice the young Blazers identified with " Monty "?

Blazers president Larry Miller stated during an Oct. 12, 2009 television appearance on "Trail Blazers Courtside" that the organization planned to broadcast all 15 of its KGW-televised games on the Internet this season. Miller also spoke of a commitment by the Blazers to stream CSN-televised games over the Web "by the end of the calendar year." http://www.columbian.com/news/2010/jan/07/blazerscomcasttxt/ I have Crapcast...even though I cancel it during the offseason but why hasnt there been any information this summer for those that still cant watch the Blazers across Oregon and Washington? Larry Miller has done nothing to follow up this promise to TrailBlazer fans and I think needs to be held accountable for making this promise to those who cant get Comcast and want to watch this upcoming and future amazing TrailBlazers Team!

Hibbert Spends Summer Working With Walton Pacers center Roy Hibbert has the benefit of playing for a rather famous front-office executive. Team president Larry Bird approached Hibbert last spring with the option of working with Bill Walton, Kevin McHale or Bill Russell, all Hall of Fame big men. "He said it would probably be one of those three guys. I just had to give him my summer schedule so he could set it up with one of them," Hibbert said. "Who wouldn't want to work with those guys?" Bird lined up Walton, who has been working with Hibbert at Conseco Fieldhouse this summer. "It's an honor for me to work with such a fine young man, such an outstanding talent with such an outstanding package," Walton said. "He has tremendous potential. We are working on his total game. Summertime is when the championships are won. Physical fitness and skill development." The emphasis in their workouts has been on defense. "We're trying to build on the great foundation Roy has and what he means to the Pacers' foundation," Walton said. "Execution of the fundamentals; denying guard penetration, rebounding and shot blocking." Walton said he wants to continue until Bird "dismisses me." *End Of Article* So why couldnt the Blazers have brought in one of those 3 to work with Oden last summer when Greg was healthy? I understand that this summer Greg couldnt do the full workouts and go hard at it learning from one of these Hall of Famers but I'd love to see them actually bring in a Center Coach for Greg or get Walton or Russell to mentor Greg during the season.

Why cant the Blazers with the help of sponsers do something like this for Thursday's game? It would be sick if everyone was in Black and stood like OKC does until the first made basket! Come On Blazers marketing have Wells Fargo or Dicks Hanna sponser this and get it done. RIP CITY!

NBA TV is replaying Game 7 of the Western Conference Championship game between Portland and the L*kers. Grab a bucket to vomit in and relive one of the most dissappointing moments in modern day Blazer history. And see if Tim Donaghy had any validity about Dick Bavetta and his phantom calls. Game is at 6:30 on 728 on Comcast. NBA TV is now free on Comcast as well if you didnt know for this season.

Knowing Nate may have made the ultimate decision on choosing Andre over a cheaper for 4-years ramon Session due to the veteran aspect, I couldnt help but notice his praise for Benoit Benjermain. I would greatly appreciate him bringing someone he trust such as Benoit to be our big man coach as i feel his trust is indicative to the growth of our big men, Nate seems to only trust those he has played with or he whom sees fit to trusting so giving him the benefit of the doubt I would like to see him bring someone in for Oden of his choose and let Lucas focus on the already offensively but rebounding challenged LaMarcus and Outlaw. What do you all think? I threw out there Mutombo but no one seemed unthusmed even though he was defensive player of the year 3 years and the Blazers are preaching him being a defensive anchor for them.
