3 Ways To Asik

According to this article, the Rockets are perhaps getting a little more serious about shipping out Asik before the deadline. As the Rockets have no leverage in the situation and are simply trying...

Why we're there...

I wrote a post the other day about the Blazers and their "arrival point" in the upper echelon in the West. A lot has been said and written about why and why not the Blazers have established...

What's it gonna take!!!

We're 13-2. Last time I checked, that's a Pac-12 championship, a game away from a #1 seed in the NFL playoffs, and a pretty darn good start to an NBA season. If this were football, this...

Point Guard GA%

Let's be honest...all of the "when healthy" garbage when we assess players (point guards as of late on Bedge) is totally conjecture. The truth of the matter is, one of the biggest components of a...

Dalembert Is Still The Answer....Kind Of...

First of all, it's literally been DAAAAAYS since I've read a speculative post about a move the Blazers should make this off-season. You'd think we had a full roster or something....anyways...an...

Draft Mining

Although I despise the sensationalist opinions of John Conzano, I have to say that his article on the Blazers keeping their #10 selection got me thinking. I've been spending all of my...

Don't forget....blockbuster trades are rarely the ones expected...

Let me preface this post by stating that the primary reason that this will seem so out of left field is because it is - it's Friday, I'm in a dead end sales job, and I'm feelin' a little restless...

The Plan A That Was

Watching the Heat vs Pacers series has me lamenting what might have been. Can you just imagine if the Pacers hadn't matched that offer sheet for Hibbert? Looking back, I can see that Olshey's...

The Road to the Playoffs

The Lakers have the 8th seed right now but are barely hanging on. The Jazz, Mavs, and Blazers are closely following in that order. Here’s what the rest of the schedules look like through the...

It's official - Batum is watchable!!!

Q: Which NBA small forward do you like watching the most? A: Nowell: Nic Batum. There are obviously better small forwards than Batum, but his emergence as a wing distributor par excellence has made him the heart and soul of Terry Stotts' franchise remodel in Portland. Simply put, Batum may be the game's most beautiful player.

Bedge Shout Out On ESPN.com

Trail Blazers director of NBA scouting Mike Born tells Benjamin Golliver of BlazersEdge about Wesley Matthews: "He has a chance to be a really good defender. You look at how he played in college and how he played this last year in Utah, we think he can be a really good defensive piece. Offensively, he's pretty solid there too. He averaged about 9 points during the regular season and then during the playoffs he was about 12.5 or 13 points total over the two series against Denver and the Lakers. I think he's just got a chance to be a piece to help us win a championship and ultimately that's why we decided to get after him. ... We do a lot of work on the guys that we're working out for the draft, free agency. We do intel work on those guys -- Andre Miller, Marcus Camby -- he's going to be a terrific fit for us. He's everything we're about. He's a great kid, a great worker, a great teammate. Really well liked. Obviously for him playing for the two coaches he's played for -- at Marquette and then playing for Coach Sloan -- that says a lot about him as a player and as a person. We think he's got a chance to be a really good player for us and to be a really good fit for our culture. I think people will really like him as a person as well."
