Looks like everybody hates the Lakers

Maps of the most hated football and basketball teams by state. No surprises except maybe that the Lakers are even the most hated team in California.

Love Traded to Cleveland?

Post claims Cleveland and Minnesota have agreed for a trade for Love. I can't find any corroboration so may just be a rumor.

Blow up the bench

This is just part of the summer doldrums imagination time. But, let's say we decided we want to keep the starters. And let's say Paul Allen was willing to spend a hefty chunk to build a team...

Thoughts on next years bench

We know next year we will definitely be looking to upgrade our bench. We have the worst bench in the last 15 years both offensively and defensively according to hoopstats. Our bench is the lowest...

Terry Stotts, league leader in rookie development

There seems to be an implication every once in a while in posts and comments that Stotts is sacrificing player development for a win now attitude. The evidence people continually bring up is the...

Should Portland retain Adam Morrison?

This is a little early but Morrison looked to be the best wing-player on our bench in our first pre-season game. He certainly was a better offensive spark than Nolan or Babbitt. Defense was meh,...

Are people still sleeping on will barton?

Best tidbit I missed earlier: Neil Olshey seemed to confirm this at Barton’s introductory press conference, when he revealed that Paul Allen had urged the front office to trade into the 20s to draft him and was overjoyed when he slipped to Portland in the second round.

Fantasy trade scenario

Let's assume Indy does the math and realizes they can't be financially viable with Hibbert and they can't be competitive without him. They decide they want to start rebuilding as fast as possible...

Why Indiana may not match

The issue for Indiana isn't whether the max-contract offered Hibbert is a good value or not. It's whether they can have a financially solvent team if they match. The problem is that while this...

revisiting Bowie (a dead horse from a new perspective)

Good article that argues that performance in college may be a predictor of NBA performance, more than size and how a player looks running. i.e. why Drummond might not work out.

OKC exploits Andrew Bynum’s weakness

Just wanted to post this link, because it's one of those rare articles that gives you a feeling for what's going on in a game beyond "so-and-so" went off for 25 points.

If the draft lottery were rigged

This is pure speculation and has nothing to do with the reality of the Draft Lottery or NBA. But if Stern was rigging the draft Lottery, what would we expect the results to be? I would guess his...

In defense of Felton

This may be a tepid defense at best, but I do believe that there are some issues with Nate that caused some of these problems. Felton admittedly was out of shape and at the start of the season...

Let Greg Oden become a restricted free-agent

  This isn't an argument to get rid of Greg Oden, but I believe the Blazers are best served by not picking up the team-option this summer on Greg Oden.  It's obvious that next year we will be...

Trade greg?

Should we look at trading Greg Oden right now? As far as I can tell we would be silly to make a qualifying offer to him, so for all intents and purposes he's an expiring contract that we don't...

Taboo topic -- Steroids (w/poll)

I realize that this is a subject rarely addressed in pro-basketball.  In fact, of the 3 major sports in the US, the NBA has to be the farthest behind in discussion, regulation and  enforcement of...

culture of Injury and what to change this off-season

Last year we saw a rash of injuries, and some can be attributable to bad luck, but even if it was only luck, the team could probably take a few steps to minimize lower the risk for next season.   1...

rumor Dallas to trade for Chris Paul

If Cuban can try to snag Chris Paul, think of the package we could put together with cheap rookie contracts our MLE and cap space. I think if we could get him while keeping Roy, LMA, Oden we don't hesitate.
