    Trail Blazers: Go-Go Miller
    "So when Portland is in need of a rebound, you’ll see him weaseling his way in between defenders in the paint to pick away the ball that may have players scratching their heads, wondering how did the 6-foot-2 guard pull down a board over your typical seven-foot center."

    Oregon Live: Charlotte's Joel Przybilla questionable for game against Trail Blazers after right knee forces him to sit
    "According to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer, Silas said Przybilla had nothing in Tuesday's practice, as Przybilla ran slower and slower until he finally stopped. Silas said he decided not to play him against the Bulls rather than play Przybilla at half speed."

    Oregon Live: Trail Blazers' Brandon Roy begins to define his post-injury role
    "Personally, I'm happy playing basketball again," said Roy, who missed 30 games from Dec. 16 through Feb. 23. "I'm not at a disadvantage. Physically, I felt like I was at a disadvantage. I couldn't attack because I was hurt. But now, I'm starting to build and build. And knowing that I can be even stronger come April 16 from where I'm at now ... I think we can be pretty good."

    Portland Tribune: General Mills
    “There are a million examples of what we’re doing through the season. Everyone does well in bringing the team together, whether it’s making jokes or paying for dinner for everyone or organizing a bowling night. Everyone enjoys each other’s company. When we had that tough stretch at the beginning of the season and lost a few on the road, everyone had kind of ruled us out, We knew as long as we had that camaraderie, it was going to help us down the end of the track. And it has.”

    Beyond The Beat: Just Another Long Road Trip For Armon Johnson
    "The very first game he told me, ' Young fella -- slow down. Enjoy the game.' Once he taught me that, I remembered it the whole time. He even hit the 'shimmy' one time for me too during the game. He got real hot and just let it out."

    Ball Don't Lie: The NBA Is Developing A Concussion Policy
    "However, the Hornets' precautions are team-instituted, not a matter of league policy. Each franchise has its own concussion guidelines, which sometimes puts players in good standing and other times in danger. Last month, we brought you the story of Bucks forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute claiming that concussion policies at UCLA were more responsible than those in Milwaukee. It stands to reason that the Bucks are not the only team that doesn't run all possible tests after similar head injuries.''

    SLAM: Michael Jordan: Derrick Rose Is The MVP
    “MVP of the season,” the Bobcats owner said Wednesday night after the Bulls downed his team 101-84. “He deserves it. He’s playing that well, without a doubt.” Then Jordan offered that sly smile. “And if he doesn’t get it, now he will see how I felt a lot of those years,” the Bulls’ Hall of Famer said."

    Oregon Live: NBA High-5: Bobcats, Pacers stumble to finish line in race for final Eastern Conference playoff spot
    "Otherwise, the East playoffs are going to start with a titanic mismatch between Boston or Chicago (or even Miami) and whichever team gets the No. 8 spot. Right now, the leading contenders are Indiana (27-37) and Charlotte (26-38), and those teams -- both of which had midseason coaching changes -- are doing little that screams "playoffs."''

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "If you don't see something special in Derrick Rose, then you're blind," Reinsdorf told the Chicago Sun-Times. "We have an outstanding coach, an outstanding bunch of players, the team is deep, and if we stay healthy we have an awfully good chance of winning at least four championships."

    DIME: Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 3.10
    "Derrick Rose put up 20 points, four rebounds, six assists, two steals, three blocks and four three-pointers in just 31:34 of work last night. He shot 47 percent (7-15) from the field, 100 percent (2-2) from the charity stripe and had just one turnover. Rose isn’t quite the fantasy MVP of the season, but he’s made undeniably huge strides toward being a first-round pick next season."
