David Falk praises Neil Olshey, critical of Bouna Ndiaye: "Neil handled our situation in a professional manner. He presented a great opportunity for Roy (Hibbert)." "(It) was classy of Neil to allow us to withdraw from the RFA process once it became apparent Indiana would match. Didn't have to do that." "I have great regard for the way the #Blazers conduct business. This is something I will remember for a very long time." "That Nicolas Batum soap opera is ridiculous. I wish Batum's agent would get the message." "Whatever behavior (his) agent (Bouna) displays, effects his client's relationship with the fans and his teammates." "It's a business, take a qualifier (if) you don't want to be there. I don't believe in all that stuff out in the public." "Roy Hibbert is only 25 yrs old & you never know what will happen in the future. What the ‪#Blazers‬ did is something I'll never forget."

Wonder if this tweet is aimed at the Blazer's organization? Twitter says it was posted just before noon today (6/27). Then we hear Crawford has officially opted out of his contract two days before the deadline, making the Blazers unable to include him in a draft day trade.

Haberstroh: Comparing LaMarcus Aldridge To Tim Duncan

55
Tom Haberstroh writes on ESPN Insider that Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge could be the heir apparent to San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan... ------------------------- The parallels between Aldridge and Duncan are hard to ignore. Physically, they are cut from the same mold, standing 6-foot-11 and weighing around 250 pounds. They entered the league at the same age as 21-year-olds, armed with inside-out shooting touches that justified their lofty prospect status. Aldridge was selected second in the 2006 draft behind Andrea Bargnani, while Duncan was the first name called by NBA commissioner David Stern on June 25, 1997. ... How can Aldridge perfect his Duncan imitation? Get working on the boards. In his prime, Duncan was a monster, pulling down almost 13 rebounds a night or 19 percent of the available boards while on the floor. Statistically, Aldridge is no better than average when it comes to cleaning up the glass, posting just a 13.5 percent rebound rate last season. For reference, the average Joe power forward grabbed 13.9 percent in 2010-11. It doesn't help that Portland teammate Marcus Camby swallows up a ton of the misses that carom off the rim, but with Aldridge's size and athleticism, he has plenty of room to grow on the boards. ------------------------- ed: bumped to front page

He's very comfortable as a scorer. He knows he has many option to choose from to get the ball in the bucket. He plays the game with a great pace -- not unlike James Harden. That allows him to let plays develop. He's going to be very effective in his shot-fake attack game."

"You gotta be careful with Andre Miller's 19 points in 19 minutes. You don't want it to be fool's gold because the Trailblazers only have 5 assists. At some point Andre Miller's offensive efficiency will go down and the ball needs to get distributed and others need to come to the party because you're going to need more than just Andre to beat Dallas on their home court."
