NICOLAS BATUM RUMORS

The Time Is Now For The Portland Trail Blazers To Trade Nicolas Batum

The Portland Trail Blazers are set to enter the 2015 NBA offseason with a potential roster overhaul on the horizon.

According to CSNNW.com’s Jabari Young, Neil Olshey may look to package Nicolas Batum and...

Nicolas Batum and Portland face the music in Memphis

I’m pretty sure nobody really thinks Nicolas Batum meant to hurt anybody with his recent motivational message that happened to include an inflammatory remark about Spanish players. It was a joke.

Nicolas Batum Fights For Portland

My inner history geek took a direct hit. My Greatest Generation grandfather spun in his urn. Nic Batum must fight for his country? If playing basketball equals fighting for France, then Coach Charles de Gaulle sends highest praise from headquarters where he fights the good fight for eternity. There’s no question too many politicians use sports analogies to explain their positions...

We Need To Talk About Nicolas Batum

During the late 80’s and early 90’s, the Portland Trail Blazers had the best starting 5 in the NBA (you heard me Chicago). They had an All-Star point guard in Terry Porter, perennial All-Star Clyde Drexler at shooting guard and two work horses in the front court with Buck Williams and Jerome Kersey.
