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 yet another post recounting the life and times of the Trail Blazers on Twitter. All text and photos come directly from the players' Twitter accounts.

Please to enjoy, a trip to the University of Oregon with Patty Mills (@Patty_Mills), Wesley Matthews (WessyWes2) and Nicolas Batum (Nicolas88Batum), with appearances from LaMarcus Aldridge (@Aldridge_12), Marcus Camby (@MarcusCamby23), Rudy Fernandez (@Rudy5Fernandez), the Portland Trail Blazers (@PDXTrailBlazers) and Wears My Shirt (@WearsMyShirt).

(ed. note: Batum's contest never ended up happening. Turns out the plan was for Nic to go to the Red Robbin in Eugene, with the clue for the contest being some kind of "Batman and Robin" reference. Turns out the Red Robin was too far away, so it didn't go down. Now you know.)

  2. yeah, i know!!! it's sad that nic's contest never happened, but i hope a lot of people helped with "Assist Australia"!

  3. Assist Australia FTW! This was a fun night. I got a picture message from a friend at 12:15am and got dressed and to Taylor's ASAP. Got to chat with Patty & Wes and a chance to snap a couple photos and definitely some memories. Patty Mills seemed genuinely interested in my schooling and wished me the best for finals week and beyond. I have to say that it solidified Pat Stacks as my favorite Trail-Blazer. He has a die-hard basketball spirit and an undeniable passion for supporters of the TrailBlazer community.
