    As of today and because of an Indiana loss to the Pistons,we are currently the best team in the league. My mind is boggling right now. This is a powerful unit we're putting on the floor these days. The cohesion is phenominal. These guys will fight to the wire. Dont turn the channel, and definitely dont leave your seat. I have to admit that its very frustrating to watch us pummel the 76ers with record breaking three point makes,and on the next night miss shot after agonizing shot against Detroit. Despite having literally weathered the storm to get to Motown,we played through obvious fatigue and gutted out another tough win. And how about the Great Dame ? ! That boy has a short term memory. He puts the last play out of his mind quickly. Make or miss that youngster is poised...Laid back..with my mind on my money and my money on my mind. Mo ,Dorell and Joel Freeland have been vicious. Especially the evolution of the British Bulldawg Joel. Seemingly overnight,Joel has transformed himself into a bonafide ball player.Every time the sympathetic potion of my brain wishes Elliot Williams were here to share some love, i see a beaming CJ McCollum on the bench. A kid that i think once has his game shape legs under him is going to be able to be a pace changer like Mo is. Mo & CJ on the floor together is probably going to be a combo that Stotts explores. But equally important of CJ's return is that dependent upon his ability to play the game at a cerebral level is going to determine whether Dame can afford to be a bit more aggressive on D. Pressuring the likes of CP3,Westbrook,Irving, and about five or six others when the ball is inbounded allows us to get defensively set alot earlier in the clock. I have to give a shout out to Allen "  Ears " Crabbe. That boy can shoot it. Ok, i know i got a little long winded on this one, my bad. But WOW, what a spectacular start to the season this has been. My prayer is that we continue to be Blessed with good health and no major if any injuries. Rip City !!!!!

    It's been phenomenal basketball. Quite the thrilling action. These guys are playing at a level we haven't seen since Drexler and the gang back in the 90's. These Blazers are able to set a nice tone early in the game, and able to make quality halftime adjustments. Not to mention dropping anchor with an aircraft carrier offshore, and launching several attack sorties from long range. This team shoots and makes more threes then I'd ever seen in an NBA game. It's not like it's ball hoggin' spray and pray 3 pointers. These are quality looks and guys are knocking them down in rhythm.



    Good work around the boards on offense and defense is the biggest part to this team's early success. That's where we're seeing an even bigger part of this squad's complete team effort. Getting those timely blocks and steals, and really scrambling for those extra possession rebounds.  



    For the most part from what we've seen from this team, is impossible does not exist.

    I am a fan of multiple All-Stars on the Blazers roster this season!

    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...

    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...
