Let's stop talking about jumpers.

It seems like recently a lot of focus from the media and our community here on Blazer's Edge has gone toward asking if our 3 point percentage is sustainable, what to do during cold stretches, and...

Weighing criticisms against expectations

I've been noticing a trend amongst many of the comments on BE lately. I've thought about responding to many of them, but since they cover a wide range of topics, I thought it might warrant a...

What do you think of Olshey so far?

Admittedly, it's too early to judge the quality of our new GM's earliest decisions. But since hindsight is 20/20, it may also be unfair to judge him after too much time has passed. Basically, I...

The "One More Year" theory

I don't know if it's because we got bumped so early from the playoffs, or if it's just our nature as Blazer fans, but it seems to me that a lot of people are getting ahead of themselves when it...

Outside perspective on James

Hey Cavaliers, a die hard Blazer fan here. I've come to pay homage to the King. There is a lot of debate right now about who the best player in the league is. Kobe or LBJ is the consensus, but...

Poor Substituition Patterns (at times)

Second guessing coaches is bound to happen, especially after a 3 game losing streak. So I was a little reluctant to post this and add to the cliche. But it needs to be said. Miller needed to come...

You just never know with these Blazers

It may be an unpopular question. Especially amidst the excitement after the Blazers go 4-0 on the road. But I feel it needs to be asked, and is being asked subtly in many of the comments made here....

A call for rationality

It's been an interesting period in Blazerland, to say the least. The rumors of the "Turkish player who shall not be named" and Rudy's future with the team are disconcerting to many fans, myself...

How much do we still expect?

So listening to Bill Simmons podcast on the playoffs, (check both out if you haven't already, a lot of Blazer talk), I was sort of offended when they started talking about how much pressure we (the...

So assuming you play the Lakers...

Are you just going to roll over and die? It's pretty much been accepted around the NBA for a couple of months now, that whichever team ends up playing the Lakers in the first round is screwed. And...

Blazer Tattoo

So I've been thinking for about a year now that I want to get a tattoo, but I couldn't decide what to get. It would have to be something that I would never look back on and regret. Something I...

Some Win-Wins in non-Blazer games

The Hornets play Utah, and Phoenix plays Dallas. Not that the second game is really important or anything, since neither one is going to catch us, but a Phoenix loss would secure our playoff spot,...

What important tests remain?

So I've been thinking about the last few games and how much we can say that they show us about our young Trailblazer team. We obviously play well at home, and play well against teams who are on a...

Who's the greatest Blazer of all time?

When you really think about it, it's an impossible question to answer. You run into the same problems as the "greatest NBA player of all time" argument. Comparing different eras, with different...

Visting with the enemy gives a new appreciation for the "Edge"

So I went over the "Dream Shake" today, in order to assess the Rocket's view of the upcoming game, and the general level of confidence amongst their fans. I don't know if there is just some other...

How important is the road trip?

It's been said over and over, and then repeated again for good measure. "From now on, every game is important." And it's true, every game is important. But really, aren't there some games which...

Rational Perspective on Trade Deadline

So I don't nomally like the columns on NBA.com, but I do like anything Blazer related, so sometimes it's unavoidable. This article by David Aldridge does a good job of saying NAY to the NAYsayers...

Why the N.Y. win was so amazingly important.

For young teams approaching midseason, the game of basketball seems to become less of a joy, and more of heavy burden. The need to win, regularly and repeatedly, can have a stifiling effect on...

Predictions are for fools, like me.

When reading the front page responses and some of the diaries, it got me to thinking about the state of limbo our team is in right now.  I think it's funny that we are all (myself included) willing...

Miles away from the norm

I was reading Canzano's latest column on Miles, which was one part speculation, one part hearsay, and one part cheap shot. Is Miles mounting a comeback?Then someone in the comment section replied...
