Lamarcus: top 3 most consistent scorer in NBA?

5

Interesting - admittedly i was too lazy to read the ENTIRE article, but basically the gist is similar to the idea of 'shake', in that it attempts to measure Volatility of scoring. They put Lamarcus as top 3 behind KD and LBJ. **keep in mind the parameters are 20+Ppg scorers only im sure the measurement can be faulty (as with most stats), but in any case kinda cool. Player Volatility Carmelo Anthony 44.0% Dwight Howard 41.5% Monta Ellis 40.9% Brandon Jennings 40.6% Kevin Martin 38.6% Chris Bosh 38.4% Deron Williams 37.2% Russell Westbrook 35.7% Derrick Rose 32.7% Kobe Bryant 29.6% Kevin Love 27.2% Blake Griffin 25.7% LaMarcus Aldridge 23.7% Kevin Durant 23.3% LeBron James 20.8%

I randomly found this, but thought it was pretty cool - this little kid loves the 3 goggles, and Marquette passed out the 3 goggles cardboard cutouts. random, but i found it interesting.

Mahoney: Nate McMillan Has A New Element

21
Rob Mahoney of the New York Times' Off The Dribble blog takes a look at Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan's lineup flexibility... -------------------------------- McMillan has been given a fascinating group of players with which to formulate lineups, and adding Wallace only diversifies his options. A player who can swing between positions in order to pair up at the forward spots with Aldridge for balance, Batum for intrigue, or Matthews for mayhem? Wallace’s presence may not create an entirely stable rotation in Portland, but he opens up a startling number of possibilities. The blessing in this for fans of creative rotation-making is McMillan’s recent two-year contract extension. Security is practically a prerequisite for experimentation, and inking McMillan for the next two seasons should rid all of his tinkering of the smell of desperation. This isn’t a coach on his last legs digging for that job-saving lineup, but one who has been empowered by his front office to make crucial decisions that are anything but straightforward. -------------------------------- ed: bumped to front page

'Most Underrated NBA Players of last Decade

2

2001-02 SEASON: Andre Miller PER GAME NUMBERS: MINUTES: 37.3 | POINTS: 16.5 | ASSISTS: 10.9 | REBOUNDS: 4.0 | STEALS: 1.6 You may know Andre Miller as a solid player for Portland right now. You may also remember him as the point guard who helped Carmelo Anthony come in to the NBA with guns blazing and then being the key player who was traded for NBA superstar Allen Iverson. Before all of that, Andre Miller played on the Cleveland Cavaliers who were horrendous before drafting LeBron James. While in Cleveland, Andre Miller put up phenomenal numbers for a point-guard, but was still never talked about and not even considered a contender for any awards. Take a nice look at his numbers and compare them to the NBA’s last point-guard to win back-to-back MVP Awards, Steve Nash (’05/06: 20.4 PPG, 10.2 APG, 3.7 RPG, .6 SPG). Not so far apart, are they?

RUDY FERNANDEZ: "MY FIRST CHOICE WOULD BE TO PLAY WITH BARCA AND RUBIO."

68

"Though Rudy Fernandez was not dealt on NBA Draft Day and appears to be staying put with his team, it may be that his days with the Portland Trail Blazers are numbered: He has reportedly "fallen out of favor with coach [Nate] McMillan," Wesley Matthews has joined the Blazers, and Fernandez is now "officially" getting shopped around." This could be a shoddy source (it is an espn affiliate), i just came across it randomly...but dated today.

Does Roy Read Blazers Edge?

15

"That's great," Roy said. "I'm good with it. I hear everybody is getting mad at me now over this whole Andre thing. I don't know why. ... I never did anything. I've never wanted anything but what's good for the team. It makes me a little sad. But I'm cool."

Oden #5 and Rudy #9 ranked soph espn.com

INSIDER LINK but here is Rudy and Oden blurb: 5. Greg Oden, Trail Blazers This big guy's confidence is coming on strong. He's averaging 11 points, eight rebounds and two blocks a game in November, while hitting almost 62 percent of his shots. All in just 24 minutes a game. (It's not his fault the Blazers have the best rebounding center in the league playing behind him.) He's often been dominant on the defensive end and on the backboards. If he begins to assert himself more on offense, we'll be talking about All-Star Game appearances soon. and Rudy 9. Rudy Fernandez, Trail Blazers Some guys take major and obvious steps forward in their second season. Others, such as Fernandez, take incremental but pivotal steps that significantly impact their team. Fernandez is still shooting and making a lot of 3s this season (19-for-47 -- 40 percent), but it's his defense that has people taking notice. Fernandez may well be the Blazers' best perimeter team defender. In other words, their defense may be at its best when he's in the game compared to any other guard or wing.

BODOG.com O/U On ODen, 10.4 PPG, 8.4 RPG

14

They got the O/U on Oden as 10.4 ppg, or 8.4 RPG....thats almost a cant lose Bet if you go the over...ether way the other Prop bets look interesting for the Blazers as well: Andre: 14.4 PPG, 6.4 APG Aldridge: 18.3 PPG, 7.5 RPG Roy: 22.5 PPG I think they did a good job with the others, but Oden at 10/8??? I think 12/10 is on the low end for him....hmm....
