Yesterday, Portland Trail Blazers forward Nicolas Batum posted an image of “The French Dream Team” (the 1992 USA Dream Team with super-imposed faces of famous French-born hoops players) and asked his followers if it’s too much:

AROUND THE WEB
The Portland Trail Blazers are a relatively young team entering the 2013-14 NBA season, which means a few of the veteran players are either still in their primes or reaching toward their ceilings.
Rip City’s offseason makeover substantially improved the bench, giving it a few players who have been there are done that. However, the starting lineup also has players...
The Portland Trail Blazers are a team with a bright future in the Western Conference. With veteran power forward LaMarcus Aldridge and young point guard Damian Lillard as building blocks, the franchise is in good hands for the foreseeable future. Last season started out relatively well, going 20-15 throughout the first 35 games. However, they […]
The NBA experts at USA today are counting us down towards the NBA season. They are going one team a day, from least-watchable to most, giving you an idea of what to keep an eye out for.
USA TODAY’s Sean Highkin has rated Portland as the No. 14 most-watchable team in the NBA.
Two best players: PF LaMarcus Aldridge (21.1 points, 9.1 rebounds, 1.2 blocks a game), PG Damian...
The Raymond Felton-Portland Trailblazer spat is a feud that keeps on giving — and getting. Two days ago Felton gave an interview with two writers at an Under Armour appearance in midtown Manhattan where he went on a long rant about the unfair criticism of his conditioning repertoire as a Blazer. The Portland organization got wind of Felton's diatribe and has fired back with...
After Raymond Felton blasted Portland yet again after his unceremonious exit following the 2012 season the Trail Blazers' Twitter account responded on Tuesday.
See this was a great response. No fat jokes nothing cruel just subtle mockery of his sour grapes. I give this an A+ and delcare Portland the winners. You know much like the last time Felton went up against Portland.
Back on Monday, the New York Post posted a story about New York Knicks guard Raymond Felton where he decided to blast his former team, the Portland Trail Blazers.
Below is what Raymond said about the media/fans portrayal of him before he left the city of Portland for NYC:
Felton is still bitter at the character assassination he received in the Rose City. Last March during a game...
The Trail Blazers still have not forgiven Raymond Felton.
Felton is now a productive point guard for the Knicks, but two years ago he kind of, sort of, pretty much quit on the Blazers. In Portland unwillingly as a result of three-team trade involving a batch of role players, Felton coasted his way to more than $7.5 million in the 2011-12 season while career lows of 11.4 points per...
While speaking at an Under Armor event earlier this week, Raymond Felton went on a rant (again) about how it was unfair how he was negatively portrayed as a Portland Trail Blazer, according to Marc Berman of the NY Post.
The comments apparently got back and didn’t sit well with the Blazers because Tuesday evening they posted this photo on their official Twitter account mocking...
Milwaukee Bucks rookie Giannis Adetokunbo is only 18 years old, but the young man stands above most NBA players (at least in terms of wingspan). Giannis recently posted a video to his Instagram which FTW found and it shows the newbie dunking without jumping, and he is only 6-9. Think about it.
Draft Express explains:
Adetokunbo stands out first and foremost thanks to the tremendous...
