NICOLAS BATUM RUMORS

Meyers Leonard Hitting Stride At Right Time For Portland Trail Blazers

When a player as valuable as Wesley Matthews goes down with a season-ending injury, it is vital for the supporting cast to step up. And not just the depth at his position; the likes of wing players Nicolas Batum and Arron Afflalo, in addition to backup guards Steve Blake and CJ McCollum … everyone. That means when Matthews tore his Achilles tendon, backup center Meyers Leonard...

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...

Portland Trail Blazers Success May Ultimately Hinge On Nicolas Batum’s Health

For years, Nicolas Batum has been part of the Portland Trail Blazers winning ways, but in a quieter fashion than was originally expected of him upon entering the league in 2008. Despite his inability to live up to the lofty projections as a potential All-Star worthy scorer and defensive stopper–I myself thought he had a more than just a little Scottie Pippen in him–it didn...

The Clock Is Ticking On Nicolas Batum

It was Blazers 103, Wizards 96 on Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd at the Moda Center. It was another comeback win for Portland, this one fueled emotionally and physically by LaMarcus Aldridge, playing hurt, and playing on into the foreseeable, if tenuous, future.
