    Thanks for taking the time to put that all together, RipCityKiki :) I wish more people would make Blazer videos, obviously fans enjoy watching them (look at TrailblazersTV). If you don't mind me trying some constructive criticism, I'll write some things in an attempt to be helpful and encouraging, BUT please don't let it offend you!

    I love hearing music that fits with the video! There was a youtube link posted on here a while back to a vid that used 'black n yellow' and it didn't make sense, just bugged me for a long time lol... But where did you get the music you used? I'm sure someone might watch the video and want to know where to get the music, as well as I'm sure the artist wouldn't mind the credit or exposure and maybe the extra business!

    You had some great clips in there too, like part of Camby's triple-block segment, and some Elliot Williams action... but couldn't you get alot more nice shots in there if you varied the lengths a little bit? It seemed like alot of them ran the same way; a few seconds of lead-up to the shot, then the shot (once, not multiple angles for effect), then 3 or 4 seconds after the shot where it showed a closeup on the player. Maybe that time could be filled with an extra clip of the same dunk/shot from a different angle, or the time would add up where you could throw in some more clips, like more Batum, LaMarcus or Williams, or maybe one of Felton or Crawford's awesome circus shots? We all know this team has plenty of highlights to fill more than a few minutes, right?

    The digital rain was also a cool effect, but it might've been used a little excessively. Please don't be offended by my having said any of this, because believe me I only would've kept my mouth shut IF I didn't like your video and want to see more :)

    Thanks again for sharing with us, definitely a nice way to look back on the first half of the season (without having to worry about so many of the let downs). Here's to LaMarcus this weekend, then the second half of the season, and more highlight videos! Go Blazers

    Also, one other thing about clip length and music that I forgot to mention... If you try varying the clip length a little, focusing more on the highlight shots and less on the lead-up/trail-off, it can let you try and time the downbeats of the music with the ball going through the hoop :) I know it's a little more editing, but it's REALLY effective at getting an audience in to the video you're putting together!

    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...

    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...
