Almost Live: Clippers at Blazers

Lob City Comes to Rip City


The camera flashes to the hall just outside the locker room, as it always does before games, and most of the players glance sideways at the camera for a minute or ignore it all together. Nolan Smith, though, flashes a smile and a big peace sign, like he's a giddy fan who has falsely assumed he's on national television. I like that. Looseness. I know Nolan probably won't see the court much—if at all—tonight, ...   More

I Am Legend

A larger-than-life Blazer legend stops by to say goodbye.

Arvydas Sabonis, who entered the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass., on Aug. 11, might be the best-loved Portland Trail Blazer of all time. Sure, Bill Walton won the te   More

Tonight's Trail Blazer Game: Who Needs Hankies? (UPDATED with Nate McMillan signing contract extension)

Crying Baby

 Many NBA fans (or maybe just me) are more curious than usual about tonight's Portland Trail Blazers game at Miami against the Heat.LeBron James' "Heatles" have lost four straight. A shocking development given the talent amassed in South Beach? Perhaps, though even good teams have some kind of losing streak during an 82-game season. But what's made tonight's game stand out from the usual regular-season ...   More

Half-Price Trail Blazers Tickets Already?

Look, I know a Tuesday night game in November against Atlanta can't be everybody's must-see Trail Blazers game this year. And I do appreciate the fact that the nose-bleed seats I've already bought for two other games somehow gets me on a list where I get discount offers emailed to me by the team. But if you need any more evidence that the NBA has some financial problems, this email below sure ...   More

The Scouting Report on Marcus Camby

If the Portland Trail Blazers' reported deal of Travis Outlaw and Steve Blake for Marcus Camby happens, here's what WW's Blazers blogger Casey Jarman had to say about Camby last month in his piece looking at big men the Blazers might try to acquire: Upside: Bigtime defender at 6-foot-11 who can shoot well and pass like Arvydas Sabonis. Contract expires this year, so it's not a big commitment. Downside: ...   More

Almost Live: Phoenix at Portland (Game Four!)

Well, I'm not sure it was a Willis Reed moment, but when this half-full Rose Garden caught a glimpse of Brandon Roy in warm-up gear, it might as well have been. For those who, like me, spent last night getting drunk and arrived to the arena not long before tip-off, this was quite a surprise. I'm sure that in-the-know folks were less taken aback. Still, it's a sight for sore eyes. Now let's see if Roy ...   More

Trail Blazers Schedule Released

The NBA released the entire Portland Trail Blazers' 2010-11 schedule today after last week's tease that told us where the Blazers are playing on Christmas Day as well as the team's preseason schedule. Below are some of the highlights from the entire regular-season schedule for what will likely be a campaign of 50-55 wins. Ordinarily, that would be a successful mark. But this year, it's one ...   More
