Found February 26, 2013 on HoopStuff:
  The Portland Trailblazers brought local hero and former Gonzaga star, Adam Morrison to training camp, but he was cut before the season. Morrison stated that if he did not make the team he would retire, but the Trailblazers would be smart to sign him to a ten day contract. Not only would bringing him in bring interest and intrigue to the team, but he could actually help the team on the court. They have the worst bench in the NBA, with no player averaging  even 5 points per game, which is incredibly pathetic. Morrison may be an awful defender, but his scoring ability has never been in doubt. Sure he was a huge bust, as the number three overall pick, but he could really help an NBA team this year and looked much improved during the Summer League. This is a no-risk move, as the Blazers will not make the playoffs and he would bring attention and money to the team and he cannot possibly be any worse than the rest of their bench has been. This is a small move, but it makes sense on a lot...

Portland Trail Blazers deserve ‘A’ at 2013 trade deadline

Silent but deadly The Portland Trail Blazers have been known to make a splash at the NBA trade deadline. In 2010, they acquired Marcus Camby, in 2011, they complete a lopsided trade for Gerald Wallace and in 2012, they started from scratch, ridding themselves of Wallace, Camby, Greg Oden and then-head coach Nate McMillan. This time around, the team stayed relatively quiet, yet...

Portland Trail Blazers Bench Players Logging Valuable Minutes

It was no secret heading into the 2012-13 campaign that this was going to be a sore spot for this Blazer team.

Portland Trail Blazers’ Big Three Has Championship Potential

The 2013 NBA trade deadline came and went last Thursday. It was a day when a ham sandwich would have dominated the headlines had it gotten traded.

The J.J. Hickson Mistake

I’m a diehard Trail Blazers fan and have been for quite some time. I actually started off as a Shaquille O’Neal fan when I was younger, especially through his Orlando Magic days. I’m sure my obsession of him must have started because of his fantastic showing in the hit film “Kazaam” but either way, I was fan of the dominant center. As I grew older, I moved onto bigger...

They may win the majority of their games to end the season, but they could also miss the playoffs entirely. The fact remains that the end of the season...
