    From Sean Sweeney of DIME Mag-

    Sean ranked the six NBA divisions from best to worst, and guess which one checked in at No.1!
     They have probably the two best teams in the West in Portland and Oklahoma City, who are a combined 16-4. Denver has the perfect recipe for success this year: a water bug point guard who never stops, a rotation that can go 11 or 12 deep playing in an environment that brings nearly every visitor to their knees, and a schedule that can be as murderous at times as that crazy dude from No Country For Old Men.
     With Utah playing surprisingly well – they’ve won five straight, are sitting at 6-3 and no one even cares that the Monstars stole Devin Harris’ talent because their frontcourt is so deadly – there’s a chance four of the teams from this division make the playoffs. Minnesota won’t, but they’re probably the most exciting 3-7 team I’ve ever seen. Already this year, they’ve lost to OKC by only four, Miami by two, beaten Dallas and San Antonio on back-to-back nights and played Chicago tough. Once Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love get a season together, look out.

    I know it's mid-January, but if the playoffs started today, four of the five teams from the Northwest would make the playoffs! And the fact a member of the outside media dubbed Portland one of the top two teams in the entire conference makes it just that much sweeter. I believe OKC, Portland, and Denver will make the playoffs. The jury is still out on the Jazz. I think they will have to beat out the Grizzlies, Rockets, and Suns for the 8th and final playoff spot, but they have been a positive surprise to say the least.

    I still can't believe we don't play Minnesota until March. That's a lotta games of having to listen about Kevin Love being the best PF in the NBA. We all know what happens when Love has to guard LaMarcus. Like 35 and 12 of those happens.
    I am a fan of multiple All-Stars on the Blazers roster this season!

    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...

    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...
