    Here is a good, but lengthy outsiders take on the 2010 Trail Blazers from SlamOnline

    A snippet:
     How have they stayed afloat through it all? Can this team that everyone was so afraid of last year resurface as a nightmare playoff match-up come April? The possibility exists. Kevin Pritchard has put together a very deep team, a compilation of versatile parts with specific skill-sets that make gameplanning for a healthy Blazers squad a nightmare. Look at their wings: Batum, Fernandez, Dante Cunningham and Martell Webster all bring something different to the table. Though there was some preseason anxiety about how Coach McMillan could juggle minutes to make sure he got court-time for all these valuable assets and even some whispers that this great depth might actually hurt team chemistry, the injuries of the season have made all such points irrelevant. Without their roster flexibility, the Blazers playoff dreams would have been buried long ago. A lot of credit needs to be given to Portland management for finding gems like Cunningham and Jeff Pendergraph as well as for believing that the last Fab Five member standing had something left in the tank. Further, don’t discount the contributions of Jerryd Bayless. While he hasn’t had the success (or the opportunity) of some of his draft-mates, Bayless’ tantalizing individual ability has been called on at times this season and he has delivered. He still has a lot to learn about the League and the nuances of the PG spot in particular, but having this underexposed dynamo lurking on the bench has been a major blessing.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
