Here we go folks!!!
Thanks for your attention:
 - if you read this, you need to add me as your friend -

My name is Rene, 23 y.o. and born and raised in Berlin, Germany. In Germany, basketball is not as popular as in the States so I started playing when I was 16. The early years I wasted my time playing soccer..but finally, I found the greatest game ever played - BASKETBALL!!!

During the 90s I became a great Pippen fan and after he joined the Blazers, they became my favourite team from this day. I really like the decisions, the management made during the last years, regarding to Draftpicks and such things. I am really into Nic BATUM at this moment. He is great, and he is European. Nevertheless, I like everyone of the team, the potential is huge, there is still a lot to come in future!!! TRUST ME!!!

I am also a big fan of Brandon Jennings..I followed him since High School...that's why I am a big Oak Hill Academy fan as well. When he played in Rome last year, I traveled to Rome to see him play...even if I saw a game in which he played just 4 minutes it was a awesome experience'cause his mother was sitting besides me and we had so much fun..I got some autographs and stuff and I think I am one of the fewest who have a Brandon Jennings Virtus Roma Jersey.

Okay sorry for the last chapter, even if its about a Buck and not about a can trust me..RIP CITY BABY...and nothing else matters!!!


P.S. sorry for bad english, it's not my first language!


  1. Welcome aboard! Do you like any of the other former Blazers who were Europeans like Drazen Petrovic or Arvydas Sabonis?

  2. Rip City! Is it tough being a Blazers fan in Germany when I suspect most are big time Dallas/Dirk fans?

  3. Glad to have you here! Really excited to see fans from Germany. We had a German intern, Philip. He was rad. Welcome!
