Thanks for viewing my page.

Born and Raised in Portland, OR - grew up a diehard fan.

Now I'm on the East Coast, but still going to games!!!

One goal of mine is to attend games in Boston, NYC, Philly, DC and Charlotte all in the same season. Another goal is to see the Portland Trail Blazers win an NBA Championship.

Barton From Baltimore Perspective

9

Some interesting quotes and analysis from the East Coast on Will Barton, picked at #40 in last night's draft.

ESPN: Most impressive, disappointing so far

2

Great Blazer references in the article: In response to the question, "what's the most impressive NBA team thus far?" Devin Kharpertian writes: "Nets Are Scorching: Portland Trail Blazers. They've bounced back from the loss of Brandon Roy without missing a step by using a balanced effort led by LaMarcus Aldridge and Gerald Wallace. They have the fourth-ranked defense in this young season and have knocked off top-tier Western Conference teams in Denver and Oklahoma City. A sum greater than its parts." Also, Mark Shore of the Clippers blog praises the Northwest Division: "The Northwest Division has been far and away the best division in the NBA. Oklahoma City, Portland and Denver are all legitimate contenders to represent the West in the NBA Finals, and Minnesota has gone from laughingstock to League Pass favorite."

Blazers Lead NBA in Total Wins for Season!!!!

Isn't this the goal of every franchise? For a time at least, most/all of our wishes for this season are true!

ESPN Insider reports that Blazers are having difficulty moving Rudy Fernandez. Is this really news?

Great Read: CBS Sports, Ken Berger "The beat goes on in Portland"

I find the quote from Kobe Bryant at the end of the article very intriguing: "They’re extremely well coached," Bryant said. "They execute everything well. They don’t make mental mistakes, and I think that’s been the key. They’ve been able to adjust their game and adjust the tempo of the game having most of their horses out."

Longest current winning streak in the NBA?

As of today, yours truly, the Portland Trail Blazers!! What a remarkable accomplishment amidst such adversity. Go Blazers!!!

Oden Will Miss Rookie Game

Here's the quote from O-Live: "NBA.com reports that Trail Blazers center Greg Oden (sore left knee) will miss the Rookie Challenge because of a sore left knee. Oden bumped knees with Golden State's Corey Maggette during the fourth quarter of Portland's 105-98 loss to the Warriors Thursday night. Oden is listed as day-to-day. Oregonian NBA reporter Geoffrey C. Arnold will report more from Phoenix shortly."

OT: Has anyone outside Oregon/Washington successfully listened to Brian Wheeler call the Blazer games online?
