Found September 26, 2012 on NorthWest Sports Beat:
We've learned via Oregon Live this week that the starting lineup for the 2012-13 Trail Blazers is: Damian Lillard, Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge and J.J. Hickson.

The season is almost here.

We'll have to see how training camp goes, see how the preseason goes, and then we'll make that determination. Meyers (Leonard) has played very well (this summer).

Wednesday, Oct. 10: Preseason opener at L.A. Lakers
Wednesday, Oct. 31: Season opener vs. L.A. Lakers

We Signed The Stache?
