Part-time Portlander and full-time NBA expert John Hollinger gives his assessment of the 2012-13 Trail Blazers
on ESPN.com. He questions whether Nicolas Batum can be Robin to LaMarcus Aldridge's Batman, gives his rather bleak projection of Damian Lillard (and Ronnie Price, for that matter) and questions if Portland will be able to rely on so many rookies.
And if you've got ESPN Insider, you can read Hollinger's complete 2012-13 forecast
. I don't think I'll be spoiling it by saying he's less than optimistic about our prospects this season.
