    Oregon Live: You Be The GM: LaMarcus Aldridge
    "He averaged 20.4 points in December, 24.9 in January, 27.8 in February, 20.1 in March and 20.8 in April. In February he became just the third Blazer ever to win Western Conference Player of the Month, joining Clyde Drexler, 1991, and Kelvin Ransey, 1981."

    Racine Journal-Times: Blazers Could Trade Up To Draft Alec Burks?
    "Don't be surprised if Portland, which has the 21st pick, tries to move up, perhaps to land Colorado shooting guard Alec Burks. Milwaukee (10), Charlotte (9) and Houston (14) are also big Burks' fans. Burks, by the way, has the ideal shooting guard size, measuring 6-6 in shoes, 6-5 without."

    Ball Don't Lie: Derrick Williams thinks he’d be a good replacement for LeBron
    "Williams is unlikely to actually be picked by the Cavs, so he can afford to posture in a way that Irving can't. If Irving goes to Cleveland and proves to be something less than a star, then any comparisons to LeBron on his part would end up looking foolish. The same would go for Williams, but it'd be less of an issue with a franchise like Minnesota or Utah. For him, it's an act of self-promotion, not a move that will set himself up for failure even if he ends up being a pretty good player."

    Ball Don't Lie: Tony Parker thinks the Spurs are no longer playing for rings
    "Parker's right -- it is very tough for an aging team to regenerate itself, unless its coach is Wolverine and its best player is a starfish. Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan often seem to have magical qualities, but I'm pretty sure regeneration is not one of them."

    SLAM: Russell Westbrook OK With 4th Quarter Benching
    “When we’re winning, I’m good,” Westbrook said … Several times in his interview session, Westbrook was asked if he had a problem with not being put back into the game. “I’m just sitting there waiting to get my name called. We was winning, man,” Westbrook said. “You all want to ask the same question and I’m going to give you all the same answer – ‘We was winning.’”

    SLAM: Yao Ming Still Unsure if He Can Play Next Season
    "Based on that timetable the 7-6 center likely would miss most, if not all, of training camp. ‘It’s too early to say,’ Yao said of whether he will play next season. Pressed on the subject, Yao replied, ‘If there is a season’ — a reference to a possible work stoppage with the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement set to expire. ‘Right now I’m not ready (to play), but I still have a couple months, maybe more.’"

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "Will his four-point play at the end of the third quarter become a series turning point? Harden was clutch off the bench, finishing with 23 points (4-of-7 from 3-point range). And his D on Jason Terry was big."
