Remembering Maurice Lucas: He "Bullied the Bullies"


News
The loss of Maurice Lucas made several large men weep on Monday. But their recollections of the former Portland Trail Blazer power forward—and later an assistant coach—also made them smile this afternoon at a memorial service for Lucas, who died Oct. 31 at age 58 after a battle with cancer. They recalled him as a tough guy on the floor but one who was a well-rounded, fun-loving and ...   More

Blazers: Greg Oden Will Miss Another Season With Another Injury


News

The Blazers announced tonight that the oft-injured Oden will undergo microfracture surgery on his left knee Friday and will miss the rest of this season. The team said a "recent MRI showed damaged cartilage to the surface of his femur" and that ...   More

God and Greg Oden: An Almost Live Special Report


News
Because Hank Stern already covered tonight's bummer Greg Oden news in a previous post, and because this writer—who has covered the Blazers for WW since the Sebastian Telfair era—has been through a few Greg Oden Injury press conferences, what follows is a free-form, 3,500-word meditation on this evening's happenings. It will not yield Rotoworld-friendly injury details and the vomit-inducing ...   More

Fans Protest Comcast at Rally Before Trail Blazers Game


News
Portland Trail Blazers fans at last night's game against Denver not only had the chance to root against the Nuggets, but also to protest Comcast's monopoly on TV broadcasts of Blazers games. Ten years ago, Comcast signed a deal promising Oregon sports fans they would be able to watch Blazers games regardless of which company provided their cable TV. Now in its fourth season, the deal appears ...   More

Almost Live: Hornets at Blazers


News
First, let me explain this week's comic. It's very high-concept. Okay, I'm lying. It's not high-concept at all, just low-effort. I have been too hungover from turkey and gravy and other meat-related items to actually craft a worthy cartoon. So my next one—looks like next Sunday against Blake Griffin (who looks, when he is really concentrating, like an oversized kitten grabbing for a shoelace) ...   More

Another Week, Another Trail Blazers Knee Surgery


News
This time it's 36-year-old center Marcus Camby, who injured his left knee in Monday night's win over Minnesota. Camby becomes the fifth Blazer this season to undergo knee surgery and his absence leaves the team very short-handed at center for what had been expected to be a string of upcoming games that should have been very winnable. Here's the announcement from the Blazers about Camby: PORTLAND ...   More

Trail Blazers Tested Tonight


News
Today's WW has a piece by Casey Jarman handicapping the Trail Blazers' different playoff possibilities. Two things worthy of noting as you read his piece: tonight's game (the always-difficult second of a back-to-back on the road) against San Antonio will go a long way to determining whether the Blazers get home court advantage in the first round. And Portland better play a hell of a lot better ...   More

Now That Was a BIG Game!!


News
[youtube OjViBwlLi4w] Remember the grief I took from some commenters last December when I wrote that people should stop hyper-ventilating about the Trail Blazers game that night against Boston as a BIG game (Okay, probably not. But I'm a small person and I remember). Well, just to show I can recognize an actual BIG game in the regular season when I see one, I hereby acknowledge that last night's ...   More
