Almost Live: Spurs at Blazers

Picture 7

A late-arriving crowd here at the Rose Garden (and I'd hate to think that some of them missed the sweet-ass national anthem as performed by members of the Oregon Symphony), but they're filling up the place again, now. And though I just wolfed down a "Jumbo Cheeseburger" (it actually was pretty jumbo), I'm feeling pumped on America and pumped on basketball, so let's get into it, shall we? WE SHALL!---FIRST ...   More

The 26-year-old Roy had been a fan favorite up until this injury-riddled season and the face of a franchise that seemed not so long ago to be resurgent. But even before today's news, all of that had already ...   More

Memories of Maurice Lucas

 Today is obviously a very tough day for Portland Trail Blazers fans with the news that Maurice Lucas died on Sunday at 58 after fighting cancer. Many of the obituaries of Lucas remember him quite correctly as an enforcer whose tough-guy approach was integral to the Blazers winning their only championship in the 1976-77 season. Lucas, a power forward, did a lot of the dirty work that allowed ...   More

Oden v. Durant: Heavyweight Hoops Question Debated By These Heavyweight Hoops Guys

[youtube EgZi6kajBuc] We've weighed in on the Greg Oden or Kevin Durant debate before. But who cares that we think Oden will eventually pan out?
