    Barring a nice comeback in Denver, Portland has done a credit job finishing this season. With wins today by Philadelphia and Toronto we have a legitimate chance of claiming the #10 pick in the draft. At #10 Portland should be able to select Shabazz Muhammad or Victor Oladipo. Either player would be a very nice asset to add to this team or at very least would represent significantly more trade value than CJ McCollum or Kelly Olynyk. 

    Toronto needs wins versus the Hawks and Celtics

    Philly needs a win versus the Pistons or Pacers

    With those wins we take the tie breakers out of the equation and Portland gets the #10 pick and more chances to win the draft lottery. 

    So lets all cross our fingers and hope for some good results and do not forget to thank the foresight of Neil Olshey not getting us a bench that got us to this enviable situation.

    this was the best thing we could hope for since were a small market team with no chance to grab that superstar player in free agency

    They said it could not be done but 13 straight losses got us to what will likely be the #10 pick congrats guys

    Exactly Nuno. Hit it on the head. Babbitt has been playing worse and worse the more he is in. Yet his minutes rise?

    I think they tanked it after probly 3 losses in a row, or it could just be coincidence. But I think they didn't want to make it obvious to the fans by outright saying it. But look at this game, we had the game at 3 points and Aldridge doesn't go in?

    C'mon now, if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck.

    People staying in school are running what would have been a solid draft, Screw you Michigan and Oklahoma State.

    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...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
