Damian Lillard: John Canzano, Who?

It seems that while Damian lillard, who has nearly played for the Blazers for two years, has had no idea who John Canzano

Who is John canzano and why do ppl keep mentioning him to me

— Damian Lillard (@Dame_Lillard) February 26, 2014 Until someone told him, we are left to assume

Oh

— Damian Lillard (@Dame_Lillard) February 26, 2014 Damian should of asked Nic or LA who Canzano is if he really wanted to know. I assume Canzano will be make an article out of this as he has a way of doing things.

Haberstroh's Blazer trade that he would like to see happen

Portland Trail Blazers receive: Omer Asik, Omri Casspi and Donatas Motiejunas Houston Rockets receive: Wesley Matthews and Meyers Leonard Why I want to see it: This helps both Western Conference powerhouses address their weaknesses without sacrificing too much of their strengths. Word is the Blazers aren't bullish on Asik and they'd hate to mess with the on-court chemistry of their starting lineup, but they're kidding themselves if they think they can challenge for the West title without an upgrade on the defensive end. They rank 23rd on defense this season and 26th since the New Year. When healthy, Asik is one of the top five rim protectors in the NBA, and he'd beef up a frontcourt that just lost Joel Freeland for at least a month with an MCL sprain. They need help. The Blazers would hate to lose Matthews, but this is a golden buy-low, sell-high opportunity for an unbalanced squad. Though Matthews has been instrumental to their relentless offense, such a deal wouldn't remove the franchise pillars of Damian Lillard, Nic Batum and LaMarcus Aldridge. Rookie C.J. McCollum has recently looked fantastic after missing the beginning of the season due to a foot injury and would help fill the void along with Dorell Wright. Plus, no owner is better equipped to take on the $15 million that Asik is owed next season than billionaire Paul Allen. The Rockets would net the sweet-shooting Matthews, who is also a physical perimeter defender -- an area that has been Houston's Achilles' heel this season. He's had somewhat of a down year defensively (Synergy rates him as well below average thus far), but he's typically been better on that end of the floor. As a veteran 3-point marksman with defensive chops, he'd fit in nicely for the Rockets' big push.

Because Dame will be in the dunk contest this saturday, I thought it would be a good idea to remind everyone that dame can do more than just dunk with one or two hands

Petition to Make Rasheed Wallace Head Coach

Yes, someone has created a petition to make Rasheed Wallace the Head Coach after Head Coach and former Blazer Maurice Cheeks was fired today. The goal is 100,000 signatures, and so far there are only a 151. Lets get Sheed to be a Head Coach! If Kidd can do it, surely Sheed could too.

Blazers in the mix for Asik

The talk is Philadelphia is the front-runner in the Asik sweepstakes, with two of the Western Conference’s top teams — Oklahoma City and Portland — in the mix as well. While Asik would certainly help a lot of teams, acquiring him wouldn’t come without a cost. He is due to be paid $15 million next season.

Lillard ready to join the elite?

Adande and Israel discuss which players could possibly be ready to join the MVP elite club. Lillard's name gets brought up. Adande: "Here in the West, Kevin Durant was the player of the month despite Portland's surprising start. And even if the Trail Blazers can maintain this winning percentage, it might be tough to campaign for Lillard for MVP because the Blazers are less Lillard-dependent than last season. They've got Mo Williams to relieve him (not to mention Robin Lopez helping out LaMarcus Aldridge in the frontcourt). Lillard is better than he was as a rookie, he just isn't as singularly responsible for Portland's success. That's good for the Trail Blazers, bad for his MVP chances." Israel: "Well, let's be honest. Lillard isn't close to joining this conversation. If the Blazers remain near the top of the West for the entire season, and Lillard significantly improves his shooting percentage (.396), then he can hop in the conversation. But for all we know, he could have a Damon Stoudamire-type of career. " (ouch) Personally, while Lillard is the driver of the car. Meaning the car (the blazers) could never get going without him. The engine is Lamarcus, who really should be in the MVP talk. As the blazers make a point of getting him involved off of the very first possession. He is the engine of the car, the guy that gets everyone else to click and grind with the gears according. Without Damian, the engine and car cannot start. However, without Lamarcus, this car isn't going anywhere. I ask you, What's better; A car that can start but isn't going to take you anywhere? Or an engine that is reliable and can take you anywhere, as long as you have someone to drive the car. Perhaps this is real beauty behind the Damian/LMA duo. Both players need one another in order to maximize their star like qualities they bring to the court night in and night out.

Why I am excited for these next 2 games

a) we get to play a top rated defense in Chicago against our top rated offense. It will be a test for the blazers and an opportunity to show that we are "for real" b) we get to play Golden state!...

Arnovitz claims The Blazers are the 5th best team in the NBA

Arnovitz claims The Blazers are the 5th best team i the NBA in this weeks 5-5: best teams, "Trail Blazers. A strong case can be made for the Warriors, Thunder and Clippers, but let's give it up for the guys from the Northwest. They've quietly assembled an offense that's a bear to defend. It has a knack for finding shots early, but has skills to thrive in the half court. The defense remains iffy, but has shown signs of progress during the past week. If the D can get to league average, the Blazers should be a quality bet to secure a playoff spot."
