Is there any NBA team with more promise and more interesting prospects than the Portland Trail Blazers? As one who is probably 30% likely at this point, and probably increasingly so each month going forward, to move to Portland in the spring, I’m going to take it upon myself to follow the Blazers throughout the NBA season. Hopefully the results will be much different than my decision to follow Tottenham Hotspur in the EPL.
But seriously, look at the following players and tell me you’re not interested in seeing how they do:
Wait, scratch that last one. With those five guys plus nice complementary players like Steve Blake, Travis Outlaw and Channing Frye, Portland has a chance to be legitimately competitive in the ultra-deep western conference. The Blazers actually did pretty well last year, despite no Oden and without the services of Fernandez, though they did own his draft rights.
