Magic and I have a friendship that goes back more than 28 years and I would never say such hurtful things. I have reached out to Magic to assure him that I did not say those things and to apologize to him and his family for even having to respond to something as baseless as this. "

Blazers' player rep Nolan Smith takes Sullinger at 6 and Lillard at 11. Sullinger: "He's a winner in every way, a skilled big man with the work ethic to succeed," says Blazers guard Smith. "He's got a big body to throw around and has great touch and shooting ability to make plays." (Sullinger, who last week was medically red-flagged by NBA doctors, averaged 17.5 ppg and 9.2 rpg last season). Lillard: "The Blazers' depth chart only has me on it at the PG spot, and Lillard will bring explosiveness to a young back court," Smith says about the Wildcats senior, who averaged 24.5 ppg and shot 41 percent from 3-point range. "He's aggressive and very athletic."

McCarney: Kaleb Canales' Journey

4
Dan McCarney of MySanAntonio.com with a background profile on Kaleb Canales, the newly-appointed interim coach of the Portland Trail Blazers. --------------------------- In addition to becoming the NBA’s youngest head coach, the 33-year-old Canales is the first Mexican-American in league history to hold such a position. Not only has Canales achieved the seemingly unachievable, he did it more than a year before the deadline he set back in his teens, when he first aspired to become an NBA head coach by the time he was 35. ... "The entire community is proud of Kaleb," said Hector Noyola, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Laredo, where Canales was once named member of the year. "It’s the No. 1 sports story ever in Laredo. It’s a goal that few would think he could achieve, and he did it." --------------------------- ed: bumped to front page

Haynes: Kaleb Canales Using LaMarcus Aldridge At The Elbow

44
Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reports that Portland Trail Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge is happy how interim coach Kaleb Canales is placing him on offense. ----------------------------------- "I love it at the elbow. I feel comfortable being there and it's hard for teams to double me there," Aldridge said. "I can take my man if I want to, see the floor, or take the jumper. There's so may options for me at that spot." "It's just a different coach. It's nothing towards Nate (McMillan)," Aldridge said. "I think I've worked with Kaleb more and he's really seen what I can do at the elbow so I think he might have more confidence in me at the elbow." ----------------------------------- ed: bumped to front page

"That's the concept behind "NBA 2K12's" new NBA's Greatest mode. In the feature, gamers will play through some of the most memorable moments of 15 legends and their teams, including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Dr. J, and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. As you play through the mode, you will then be able to unlock these teams and legends in order to match them up against current greats like Kobe's Lakers and Dirk's Mavs." They have 10 more legends to announce. It's a long shot, but it is a possibility

Best Blazer Dunk of All Time

OF ALL TIME!!!!!!! My yearly "Best Dunk of the Season" posts tend to be popular, so I decided to make one huge one. Also, I am fairly young, so anything pre 90s I most likely wont have.

Aldridge a top two way player (insider)

11

LaMarcus Aldridge -- Offense 97, Defense 79 Judging by his PER alone, Aldridge should have been an All-Star this season. But once we consider his defensive impact, he's entering top-10-player territory. When we talk about players who were most valuable to his team this season, we tend to leave Aldridge out of the discussion, and I'm not sure why. Looking at his plus-minus numbers, his impact on the Portland Trail Blazers was off the charts this season, as the team played about 15 points per 100 possessions better with Aldridge on the floor (fifth best in the league). And it's not just because he can score anywhere inside the arc. The 25-year-old has been a staunch defender, despite splitting his minutes between his natural position at the 4 and the center spot. Synergy rates him as the fourth-best defender in the pick-and-roll among those with at least 200 plays defended, which is a huge improvement from where he was a season ago. He doubled his block rate this season -- the Blazers are 5.5 points better per 100 possessions defensively with him on the court -- and he's entering his prime. Tentpole.
