Taking A Deep Breath Before Game 6


News
[youtube 3j1q6osDAEc] For all the back-and-forth over what the Trail Blazers should — or shouldn't — be doing in their first-round series against Houston, we're going to take a step back on this day off between Games 5 and 6 to employ that classic sports bromide — "putting things in perspective." Sports fans ask one of two things from our teams: 1) If you're going to be jerks, ...   More

Game 4 Recap: Here Come The Series Post-Mortems


News
[youtube FY97mLmWNJQ] With the Trail Blazers facing potential playoff death tomorrow night in Game 5 against Houston, the pundits' eulogies are starting to roll in as to why the Blazers are first-round losers. In no particular order, it's _Greg Oden's fault. No, not entirely. But even conceding some of the refs' whistles are ticky-tack, Oden's whole body language for most of this series has ...   More

Houston's Dikembe Mutombo: Gone But Not Forgotten


News
[youtube bDKQhCgLqxU] We take a brief pause in building up our Irrational Fan Hatred of the Houston Rockets before tonight's Game 3 between the Trail Blazers and the Rockets to pay tribute to Dikembe Mutombo. Mutombo's long career ended in Game 2 against Portland, when he injured his left knee. And while his absence means less rest for Blazers nemesis Yao Ming, it's hard to take much glee in the ...   More

Trail Blazers v. Houston: On to Game 3


News
[youtube rAIjhWW24XM] So before Game 2 yesterday still in the throes of fan depression from Game 1, I opined on five things the Trail Blazers needed to do against Houston last night. Here's how they did. 1) Stop bitching about the refs. DONE. And look what happened, the Blazers shot and made four more free throws than Houston - coincidentally, the margin of victory. 2) Aldridge, play closer ...   More

Blazers Aftermath: Some Video Consolation


News
[youtube pDVFxfUdv5M] Sure, last night's end to the Trail Blazers season was disappointing. But here's some consolation to get you through today's letdown of realizing that Greg Oden stunk, Travis Outlaw and Nicholas Batum shrunk and Steve Blake suffered through on-again, off-again funk. There will be plenty of time to analyze what the Blazers need to do next season. But for the moment, let's ...   More

Your Newest Trail Blazer: It's Miller Time


News
The Pritch is Back. Trail Blazers GM Kevin Pritchard has made it official: the Blazers have signed Andre Miller to a multi-year deal. A quickie take? A 33-year-old point guard will have enough short-term oomph — if his durability remains a constant — to make the Blazers better. But he's not exactly the final piece of the long-term puzzle either. And the next obvious short-term question: ...   More

Trail Blazers Unveil "New" Jerseys


News
OK, I get that throwback jerseys are a total marketing stunt designed to part a fool (uh, me) from my money. But as a Trail Blazer fan who gets teary remembering the mid-1970s when Blazer stalwarts like Leroy Ellis sent me a letter or when Barry Clemens rallied Portland back from a 26-point deficit against the Lakers circa 1974, I think bringing back the red jersey from that era on the left ...   More
