    Looking at the last four games, it is becoming more and more evident that the Starters are beginning to hit the wall with the excess minutes they are playing because of our lack of depth on the bench.  Teams are figuring out how to play Lillard, which Batum is going to show up the one wants to be a play maker and get assists, or the one who wants to score, how much can LA’s body take carrying the team?  These are all questions that need to be addressed.


    The question is do we continue to have our starter’s play the high minutes and risk injury and leave us at risk for the Team’s future or do we sacrifice making the playoffs and reducing their minutes to avoid injury and continue the rebuilding process.  Personally, I am at a quandary, I would love to see the Blazers prove the skeptics wrong about this team and make the playoffs (reality is we will be booted out in the first round), however on the other hand I want to protect our assets and not risk injury.


    My opinion, we are at the half way point in the season, we have another 43 games left in the regular season which includes a back to back at the end of this month with the Clippers, a brutal 3 games in four nights road trip in February, and two long road trips in March, and if we make the playoffs the wear and tear continues.  I think the last four games are a symptom of what is to come with the excess minutes.


    Your thoughts?


    I am a fan of WES, the heart and soul of the Blazers.

    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...
