    Trail Blazers: Gerald Wallace Debuts In Portland
    “The first half I was nervous, the second half I kinda calmed down,” said Wallace following the contest. But don’t worry Rose Garden faithful, we haven’t seen anything from “Crash” yet. Said Wallace of his performance, “They didn’t see anything. They saw me more nervous than anything, but I hopefully it’s gonna pass and we’ll come back Tuesday night and it’ll be a different scenario.”

    Oregon Live: Blazers: Gerald Wallace's Portland debut not so stellar -- just like Marcus Camby's last season
    "But does anyone remember how Camby's Portland tenure started? It did not go well. He debuted Feb. 19, 2010 at the Rose Garden against Boston. Blazers coach Nate McMillan stuck him in the starting lineup, and Camby had seven rebounds and blocked three shots."

    Columbian: Terry Porter: Career Reflections
    "Ford, a former Bucks point guard, said “I love him,” when asked about Porter last month, and that, “Without him, we don’t go to the playoffs.” However, when Stoudemire, the former Sun, fielded a similar question regarding his old coach, he proffered a “no comment” that made the Knicks’ locker room about 10 degrees cooler."

    Columbian: Blazers: Weekly Report Card 2/28
    "With his team down by three against Denver with just six seconds left, Roy launched a double-pumped 3-pointer that somehow found the basket, scoring his 16th, 17th and 18th point of the night while igniting the Rose Garden crowd. LaMarcus Aldridge followed Roy’s clutch play in overtime, nailing two free throws to give the Blazers a one-point lead they would ultimately cling on to."

    Rip City Project: Game 59 Recap: Hawks 90, Blazers 83
    "Sunday’s game was one of the more highly anticipated games of recent memory, and because of that there will undoubtedly be an inordinate amount of frustration from Blazer fans, vis-a-vis the outcome. On the night that All-Defensive Team selection Gerald Wallace made his Portland debut, we all wanted to see a big win. What he got was a performance that was at times lackluster, and underwhelming through and through. Blazer fans have a right to be frustrated, but let me try to stall that frustration by saying, Sunday was one game, and what should be taken away from Sunday’s game is not how poorly Portland shot, rebounded, and took care of the ball, but what a healthy Marcus Camby, a healthier Brandon Roy, and a fully integrated Gerald Wallace means for the rest of 2010-11."

    "Now for some good news on the knee front. Here's Camby on his knee: "It feels OK. Normal soreness after the game. Normal soreness. It just felt a little weird being out there, not being out there for a long time. Just trying to get my timing and my bearings back to where it was before I got hurt. Today was a good step for me and now I can just build from here." Camby did say he was "surprised" to play almost 17 of his 20 minutes in the first half."

    Rotoworld: Earl Barron: Earl Barron on short list for Trailblazers
    "According to sources the Portland Trailblazers are looking to add a big man with Earl Barron's name being dropped as a possible option.''

    Ball Don't Lie: The Clippers celebrate Black History Month in the wrong month
    "And even when he tries to do right, he does it scummily. Like this ad celebrating Black History Month at a Clippers game. In March. Black History Month is in February. Everybody knows that. Only Donald Sterling doesn't care.''

    ESPN: Power Rankings
    "For all the justified love LaMarcus Aldridge has been getting, he suddenly has something even more satisfying: help. Camby has been reactivated, Gerald Wallace has been acquired ... and B-Roy is back with a flourish."

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "With the Cavs just two games from escaping the NBA cellar, the Wolves sprung into action. Love posted 37 points and 23 rebounds to extend his double-double streak to 46 games in a 126-123 win over the Warriors. ''

    DIME: Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 2.28 (Weekend Recap)
    "Brandon Roy (2/27): 3-9 FG (33%), 6 Pts, 1 Reb; Just two days after posting 18 points, two three-pointers, five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block, Roy lays this stinker. He shouldn’t be a starter in most leagues at the moment."
