Playoff Race: Blazers that are stepping up.

As the calender turned to March many of us looked for the blazers to step up their game during the strech run for the playoffs. And as we are 1/2 way through the month some patterns are emerging...

Blazer/Laker hatred from LA's view

Blazer PER Rankings

The link just goes to the PTB team page on espn, which is where I found the PER's listed. Here they are based off of 3 games, for our glorious review! (remember the league avg is 15) 1. Rudy 24.87 2. ROY 24.54 3. Batum 20.69 4. LMA 16.91 5. Outlaw 15.41 6. Sergio 15.40 7. Blake 13.56 8. Frye 11.02 9. Joel 9.75 10. Bayless -5.93 I didn't do Greg, Web, Ike, or Raef for obvious reasons. There are some patterns I want to continue, (Sergio's good start, and enourmous assist rate, Rudy's TS% of 64%) and some I hope turn around, (LMA's shooting %'s and rebounding rate, Outlaws shooting %'s and rebound rate). I think we can all agree the suprise is Batum who at 20.69 is playing way over his head so far, lets hope he makes everyone believe that this is just how he is, and how good he is.

Awsome Video look at the 2007-08 Blazers

This might have been posted before, (it was made back in April)but I didn't see it then. It is long, (over 9 mins) and a awsome way to get ready for opening night. Have fun, and GO BLAZERS!

Blazer preseason thoughts

This is a really good look at the Blazers preseason happenings so far. Here is a tidbit about Greg. "Five things I liked: 1. Greg Oden in general- Yeah, his conditioning clearly isn't up to snuff and his offensive game is basically dunks and short hooks. However, A) he's finally on the freaking court in a Blazers uniform and B) his per-40 averages of 21.2 points and 12.1 rebounds are quite impressive. He forces opponents to double when he catches it down low which opens up everyone else, especially Aldridge. His defense is a little less than I expected at this point, but his offensive production and rebounding are better than I thought they would be. Once he gets his body conditioned and can play closer to 30-35 minutes (which is what I expect he will average in the regular season) he should be a double-double machine night in and night out."

OT: BE Court Rivals thread.

****I have just copied/pasted this from the last one which has falled off. Lets get this rec'd so we can keep in touch. Also I will be updating the Blazers edge Spreadsheet for all teams, so far I only know of Bedgers, Just Blaze, BlazersEdgers, and Boom goes the Odenite. If there is another team post here and I will add you.**** In keeping with Dave's new housekeeping guidelines, I believe the Court Rival postings go down here now. But if there are enough recs it'll get stickied I think. I guess I've never seen a fanpost with 5 recs... Anyways, the linked league spreadsheet is waaay out of date if anyone wants to update. I could possibly do it if the username / password was mailed to me (fewmit on CR). But the main news is that it appears we are down to 5 teams. Red Unit is gone. B Edge Odenizers and Blazing The Edge exist but are not being updated by their players so I assume those are "dead" teams. BE League Teams: BEdgers - college A BlazerEdgers - college B Just Blaze - college D Boom Goes The Odenite - college D Honka Playboys - playground It's getting almost time for some intraleague action, though! Should a date be set for accepting challenges? How about this Saturday? There is a twist here, in that this season teams can challenge twice! Should we have actual playoffs this season (with 5 teams) or play each other twice? Let the debate begin! Just Blaze looks forward to defeating y'all any way we can!
