Ok, so a new season so I have a new starting five. Roy and Aldridge are fixtures so nothing needs to be said about them. My staring five is the same as Nates, except for one thing. Why the hell aren't you starting Andre?! Why pay him all that money to come off the bench? To me the thing that the Blazers were lacking the most last season were decisions at the point. There
