Orlando Summer League Wrapup, Day 4

Westbrook continues to impress, B. Lopez looks promising, Beasley has a solid game and Patrick Ewing gets his first coaching victory.

Orlando Summer League Wrapup, Day 3

Rose sits, Mario "Superintendent" Chalmers and CDR impress and will we have Beasley v. Durant tomorrow?

Orlando Summer League Wrapup, Day 2

Durant plays, Beasley struggles (bust!!) and Rose is banged up (bust!!).

Mike Rice is a Pessimist...

This is a segment of Trailblazers Homecourt via Casey's blog. Mike Rice predicts 47 wins tops (around what I said, 45) and says that expectations of 55 wins are unreasonable.


The Bulls Made the Wrong Pick and Other Ironclad Conclusions from Orlando Summer League

rumor: Denver turns down 'Melo for Prince and Billups

Wow. That would have been a blockbuster. I might have done it if I were Denver. Improves the D and makes AI the clear go to guy instead of having to fight 'Melo for shots.

I linked to his breakdown of Westbrook, but there's some good stuff on the top college players (he doesn't evaluate the international prospects).

Sabermaticians argue over LaMarcus

Rudy struggles in game 2...

Surprised Amlmart1 hasn't posted this, but Rudy played poorly in game 2 of DKV's best of 3 series against Marc Gasol's Akasvayu Girona squad. Gasol had a monster game as his team evened the series. Game 3 is tomorrow. Look for Rudy to come out inspired. Also of note, 8th seeded Unicaja stunned regular season champs Real Madrid, sweeping the series 2-0.


Who do you not want to get Beasley/Rose?

Hey guys. It's been a while since my last "fanpost."  I wanted to go through the lottery teams and look and which teams would be really scary if they got Beasley or Rose.  I'm thinking in terms...

Drive to the Finals fantasy game

This is a pretty fun playoff fantasy game on  You pick 1 player everyday and your score for the day is pts+asts+rebs.  Once you pick someone, you can't use him again the rest of the...

The new S.B.N. format

Give Mo Cheeks some credit

Don't look now but Mo's Sixers have won 7 of 8 and 9 of 11 after defeating San Antonio today.  He's got them in playoff position ahead of some more talented teams (Atlanta, Chicago, New Jersey and...


Around the league... Panic time in Denver?

I want to discuss LaMarcus Aldridge.  At the beginning of the year, I thought he would be our leading scorer and best player this season.  I was fully on board with the thought that he'd be...


OT: Congrats to Cornell

Sorry about this, but I couldn't resist putting in a shameless plug for my alma mater, Cornell, which on Saturday clinched its first NCAA tournament bid since 1988.As the first team to lock up a...


Issue: Team Speed

I want to touch on something that I am pretty sure is an issue, but I'm not sure how big a problem it is for the Blazers.Our guys are slow.Not slow as in Shaq-like but we only have two players who...

11 thoughts on the Knicks game and the Blazers

The Knicks are a better team without Eddy Curry David Lee, Renaldo Balkman and Nate Robinson play their butts off. Either Balkman or Lee could really help the Blazers. When James Jones isn't...
