News
This has to be the least-anticipated opening night in the last decade for the Portland Trail Blazers. Even the interesting questions—is Damian Lillard the point guard of the future? Is Lamarcus Aldridge worth max money?

News
The long regional nightmare is over. Raymond Felton is a Knick.You knew that already. Doubtless you spent the weekend binge-eating in celebration. But Portland's relief at the Blazers trading the "portly malcontent" has garnered national notice—especially in his new home of New York City. It's just a footnote to the Big Apple's general horror at losing Jeremy Lin because Knicks owner James Dolan's ...   More

Almost Live: Spurs at Blazers

timmy

News
Tim Duncan looks sad here because he's not playing tonight. I'm sad about it, too. One of my last chances to see one of the all-time greats and he's not in the building? That's a bit of a bummer. Though, honestly, I think the Spurs have a better chance of beating the Blazers from their bench than with a coupla tuckered-out veterans. [UPDATE: I was really, really wrong about this and clearly know nothing ...   More

News
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

Almost Live: Nuggets at Blazers (Throwback Edition!)

News
Maybe I should really call this the "Birdman Edition," seeing as how, no matter how minor a role that Denver big man plays with the Nugs, I tend to follow his exploits closely. When I was eating some meatballs over in the media room, a few little kids were chomping down with their mom—guessing she's an NBA mom, but I that's not really my area of expertise—and when the Nuggets ran through the breezeway, ...   More
