With NBA teams now in training camp I guess its as good of a time as any to look at it. Some optimism in Portland for the first time in awhile. I think the Blazers are a playoff team this year (but not a true contender). They had one of the worst benches in nba history last year, but its been overhauled and should be pretty good this year. At the very least this team should be really fun to watch and will put a lot of points on the scoreboard.
PG: Damien Lillard, Mo Williams
SG: Wes Mathews, CJ McCullom
SF: Nic Batum, Dorrell Wright
PF: Lamarcus Aldridge, Thomas Robinson
C: Brooke Lopez, Meyers Leonard
As for the rest of the league, I pretty much just assume that Miami is going to win it all again.
