Portland Trail Blazers rookie Damian Lillard tweeted that while he enjoyed a visit to Washington D.C. and would like to return, the "historic statues" there frighten him.
A fear of statues?
Some people are scared of heights. Some fear the end of the world. I’m personally frightened by mascots and people in costumes like you’d see at a zoo or amusement park—come on, you have no idea who is under that thing!

With LaMarcus Aldridge and the Portland Trailblazers coming into Boston, The Oregonian posted an interesting article about the matchup: Does Garnett’s style of play, and irritation, bring out the best in Aldridge? Can I quickly dispel this and say no?
According to article, Aldridge has a list of people who really bring out the aggravation in him. Guys like A’mare Stoudemire,...

In an industry that is still heavily dominated by men, its always a little disheartening to see a high-ranking female executive leave a position. But such is the case for Portland Trailblazers Executive VP and COO Sarah Mensah.
Mensah, who had been with the Blazers for the last 19 years, recently tendered her resignation, according to the Portland Business Journal.
While it hasn...
Damian Lillard is having a tremendous rookie season for the Portland Trail Blazers, but it’s his off-the-field antics that are providing more entertainment for NBA fans.
After a trip to Washington, D.C. last week to play the Wizards, Lillard tweeted that he liked the city, but he was scared of all the historic statues that litter the nation’s capital. When reached for further...
WASHINGTON -- Sure, the Wizards remain deep in the NBA's basement, an obvious punch line if an example of overall futility is required. Yet on this night, after opening the season with a dozen straight losses, Washington is home to a winner. Jordan Crawford scored 19 points, and Emeka Okafor sank two free throws with 39 seconds left as the Wizards snapped their 12-game, season...
Part of you has to feel bad for Blazers fans. The team is just bad. How bad? Some of the worst teams in the league look forward to playing Portland so they can get a win. *cough*Washington*cough*
They should get some sympathy because it wasn't so long ago the Celtics were a laughing stock even though they had plenty of talent on paper. Needless to say, there was not a whole...

So now that the Wizards have finally peeled the nagging monkey off their back and shot it dead by churning out a win after a dozen failed attempts, the subsequent buzz amongst fans is where do we go from here. While the lone inkling of positivity within this team is derived from their moderate defense, the Wizards still remain questionable in the close-out department as they get...
