NBA Purgatory Trivia II!

I had fun with the first one. Here's another! As usual some of them are quite easy while others might be a head scratcher. Try and answer as many as possible without research. If you do go look...

NBA Purgatory Trivia!

The month of August is NBA purgatory. In order to feed my famished mind, I decided to put together a little list of ten NBA trivia questions for you Blazermaniacs to ponder. Some of them are...

Alternate 2012 Olympics Team

Someone recently floated the claim that the U.S. could create a second squad for the Olympics, not including the usual suspects from 2008, and still win gold. Let's assume the 2012 Olympics roster...

The Blazers are in ninth place in the West and threatening to miss the playoffs entirely; if so, they will shatter the record for scoring margin by a lottery team. That "honor" is currently held by the 1973-74 Golden State Warriors, who outscored their opponents by 2.6 points per game but went 44-38 and missed the postseason by three games..

Bill Simmons of Grantland.com -- also known as "The Sports Guy" -- picks up the "Portland Trail Blazers should trade for Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash" idea again... ---------------------------- But what if the Blazers offered Raymond Felton, Nic Batum (whom they just passed on extending) and $3 million for Nash, with the wink-wink caveat that Phoenix then had to buy out his buddy Grant Hill's contract so Hill could sign with Portland? Could you go to war in the 2012 playoffs with LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace, Marcus Camby, Wesley Matthews, Jamal Crawford, Hill, Kurt Thomas, Craig Smith and a rejuvenated-by-the-Pacific Northwest-and-a-title-shot-and-Rip City Steve Nash? Hell yeah! I haven't been this excited for a fake trade in years. Naturally, that means it won't happen. ---------------------------- There was some discussion on Monday as well. ed: bumped to front page

Do YOU know much about these players?

Every now and then I'll wander over to another team's SB Nation blog to read their game preview. Last week I was over on Peachtree Hoops reading about the Atlanta Hawks. They mentioned Willie Green...

Would a "Lou Gehrig Moment" benefit Brandon and the fans?

Closure. For the fans and for himself, I'm wondering what Rip City would think of a Lou Gehrig-style moment for Brandon. No, he isn't going to die. Yes, I know it's probably too soon. But I think...

Dear Paul Allen,

I’m curious. If the owners get what they want in a new CBA (increased BRI), can the fans expect a break on ticket prices going forward? With a better business model, you intend to help out the...

The Smith vs. Faried Debate

Kenneth Faried seemed like an appealing prospect at first glance. I was certainly sold on him prior to the #21 pick. (I still think he's a great value, but read on.) When the Blazers took Smith...

Jackson was adamant that the team's backcourt duo of Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry can be as successful defensively as it has been offensively. He said he looks forward to coaching Ellis -- always the subject of trade talk -- and wouldn't move the team's star guard for anything less than one of the league's top players. (Mark Jackson from his introduction press conference with the Golden State Warriors. What do YOU think? Is Monta Ellis worth "one of the league's top players?"

Apologies if this has been posted on BE elsewhere. Great video from Batum on Facebook 5/5. He sounds VERY pumped to get back at it. I'm really excited to hear him talk about putting on more muscle. Have to think he looked at his situation in the lineup with Wallace and realized how big of a difference a little mass makes.

Hollinger wonders whether Aldridge hurt his knee worse than the Blazers are letting on. I didn't get to see the Houston game last night. What do you guys think? Mike (PDX): Blazers struggles since the Wallace trade: Any serious reason for concern? John Hollinger: To me the obvious concern is whether Aldridge hurt his knee worse then he's letting on in the Atlanta game. If he's OK, then it's no major worries. If not, however, they just aren't going to be able to score enough to beat any good teams.

"I'm not a yes-guy, never have been," Cho said. "I feel like the best way to do things is if I don't agree with you, I'm going to tell you, and I'm going to tell you why. That's just the kind of person I am. I'm going to tell you what I feel, not what you want to hear."
