    Kerry Eggers-
    The Blazer delegation took Faried to dinner at Oswego Grill Sunday night, put him through a 90-minute workout session Monday morning and then spent time visiting with him afterward. After the workout, Faried sought out every member of the Blazer party for a handshake and a thank you, a smile on his face.
     “That’s Dennis Rodman all over again,” Florida coach Billy Donovan said after the game. “If I were an NBA general manager, I’d be taking him with my pick. That’s what a next-level guy looks like. He just totally destroyed our frontcourt.”
     “He’s going to have to learn how to play in a man-to-man setting, but he has a lot of potential,” Ociepka said. “For us to improve defensively, we need a stronger rebounder and a guy who will battle and help (LaMarcus Aldridge). Guys like this can help you.”

    This guy has got to be OUR guy! I f we draft him, he's instantly going to be a fan favorite. How long have we wanted a power forward who does nothing but crash the boards consistantly?

    The Knicks and the Blazers are going to be both trying to move up to get this guy, but I think Allen may have a few fallbacks he wouldn't mind taking a chance on if his buddy Dolan beats him out for the prized energy player both their teams could use.

    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...
