  • Got a chance to watch this young man play against the Spurs last night. This kid is legitimately good. With him and Aldridge, the Blazers have a chance to build a very good team for several years. He's easily the best rookie this season, looks to have Rose-like skills and athleticism. Hope the Blazers can actually build on this and start challenging in the west. I actually like that team quite a bit.

  • they have alot of young pieces between Lilliard, Leonard, Claver, Will Barton and Joel Freeland. Hopefully they can get some time to grow as a unit. I like what I am seeing from the team and Stotts.

  • He reminds me of Brandon Roy. Nothing spectacular but before you know it he has 24 points. Just so smooth that everything looks easy.

    I love the Blazers starting 5. But the bench is horrendous. Still, they're playing a lot better then I thought they would this season. I figured they'd be in contention for worst record in the league.

  • The lack of depth is awful. It shows when the team beats some of the better teams they faced then face plant against wizards and kings. Rough rollercoaster season ahead.

  • Yeah, the bench is hurting them right now, but like I said, a decent draft and couple of FA pickups or trades can sort that out quickly.

    Yep. He's got superstar potential. Not kidding.

  • First rookie in history to have 20 plus points with at least 5 assits and five rebounds (I beleive three games in a row). IN HISTORY of the NBA!

  • He is smooth. He reminds me of Chauncy Billups (play style wise) but is way faster and more athletic than Billups ever was. He is a much better passer too. This kid is a star. He needs to play better with Aldridge, maybe develop some pick and roll.

  • Blazers are starting to remind me of the Seahawks. Young and lead by a rookie, but they are starting to come together as a team. They have a serious shot at the playoffs this year, just wish they could get 2-3 quality bench guys.

    The bench will prevent them from doing anything significant in the postseason, assuming they make it. Still, a lot to like if you're a Blazers fan, although I will say that Aldridge appears to have regressed a bit this year. We'll see how it plays out.
