Over half of the Portland Trail Blazers roster, thanks mostly to the efforts of Patty Mills
, uses Twitter and often times, they use the 140 characters allotted per tweet to converse amongst themselves.
With that in mind, I introduce the first of what I hope will be many posts recounting the life and times of the Trail Blazers on Twitter. All text and photos come directly from the players' Twitter accounts.
First up, a night at the bowling alley with LaMarcus Aldridge (@Aldridge_12
), Rudy Fernandez (@Rudy5Fernandez
), Marcus Camby (@MarcusCamby23
), Patty Mills (@Patty_Mills
) and Dante Cunningham (@DLamarC33
). Post are listed chronologically.
