With star LaMarcus Aldridge among three key but missing pieces, the Portland Trail Blazers haven't made up for the lost offense during their worst skid in nearly two years.
Things may not get any better against a team that smothered the healthy version of their lineup last month.
The Trail Blazers are likely to be without Aldridge, Nicolas Batum and Chris Kaman on Wednesday night...

It was the Dwyane Wade show in Miami against the Blazers on Wednesday night. But let’s not forget this little high-wire act by the Birdman, Chris Andersen.
Chris Andersen jumps on another Chris (Kaman) for this alley-oop jam:
The tattooed Andersen certainly dunked that with flying colors. Man, I’m so hilarious.

Nope, no field goal related humour attached to this shot attempt by Houston Rockets forward Josh Smith. Just a quality poster dunk featuring Chris Kaman. Raise your hand if you think he should do this way more.

Josh Smith isn’t dead, guys. In fact, he’s the one doing the killing here.
R.I.P. Chris Kaman:
I think the Houston bench reaction was even better. A for the dunk. A+ for the bench celebration.
And an E for Effort for Kaman, I guess.

Sometimes, it’s better to be lucky than good and during tonight’s Portland Trail Blazers-Sacramento Kings game, Portland center Chris Kaman made a circus shot look easy.
It happened in the second half of play and watch as Chris makes the spinning reverse lay-up around Kings big man Ryan Hollins:
That was pretty amazing, folks!

With All-Star Weekend upon us, signifying the emotional (if not exactly mathematical) mid-point of the NBA season, it’s a logical time to take a step back, look at the season thus far, and see where it’s taken us. At the same time, we’re also in the heart of award season in Hollywood, with the Grammy’s just getting handed out, and the Oscars around the corner.
Sometimes helping a teammate can come at a price to you and during last night’s Trail Blazers-Grizzlies game, Portland center Chris Kaman found that out.
As teammate Wesley Matthews was down on the court, Kaman ran over to help his teammate to his feet but ultimately slipped and fell into Wes:
Stay safe, Chris and Wes!

Shabazz Muhammad absolutely posterized Chris Kaman Wednesday night with this monster dunk midway through the second quarter.

Stats are for losers, but for the last two seasons, the lack of stats coming from their bench prevented the Portland Trail Blazers from being winners what it mattered.
The Blazers look like a shoo-in for the NBA playoffs, but thanks to a revitalized bench they could do more than just make the postseason field. Steve Blake and Chris Kaman have filled a...

The Portland Trail Blazers open their 2014-2015 season on October 29 and Rip City is hoping to see the team build on last year’s 54-win season and second round playoff appearance. Much of the discussion is centered on the development of the bench, which was practically invisible last year unless you count ex-Blazer Mo Williams chucking off...
At first glance it didn’t look like much, but the collision between Chris Kaman and Timofey Mozgov resulted in stitches for the Trail Blazers center.
Via Joe Freeman of The Oregonian:
While playing defense, Kaman backed into Mozgov in an effort to box him out as a Denver player attempted a shot from the perimeter. But as Kaman pushed Mozgov, the 7-foot-1 center toppled on...
Remember that time Chris Kaman sprawled out and got some shut eye during a live, NBA game?
How could you not. Kaman's nap was a funny moment on a night Cavs fans would otherwise like to forget (the Lakers beat the Cavs 119-108).
Well, Kaman has a new team (the Portland Blazers) and a new reality show called "Exploring Kaman" (much less suggestive than it actually sounds).
Portland Trailblazers center and noted outdoor enthusiast Chris Kaman is getting his own reality show and it looks pretty awesome. It involves international travelling, fast cars, assault rifle target practice, catching huge fish and then eating the eyeball of said fish plus a bunch of other out of bounds stuff. Per the Oregonian:
“I think whoever would watch this would think...

It’s a time for teams to get better, and that’s exactly what the Portland Trail Blazers did with the shrewd signings of Chris Kaman and Steve Blake.
Although Portland, tucked away in the Pacific Northwest, didn’t make many headlines with these acquisitions, it’s clear that they’re going to be rotation players in the 2013-14 season. Steve Blake, while...
Portland Trail Blazers: Is Their Bench Better?
By Jennifer Fazioli: Lead Writer @ Hoopstuff…
While the free agent frenzy continues unabated around the rest of the league, the Portland Trail Blazers’ offseason moves are essentially finished. With just two roster spots open and needing to be filled, very little cap space available, and only two methods of upgrading their roster...

After pursuing Spencer Hawes when free agency began there were various names linked to the Blazers’ pursuit of a backup big man; Hawes, Channing Frye, Josh McRoberts, Boris Diaw. Then, as it usually goes down, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported that the Blazers...
Portland Finds Its Big Man.
The Portland Trail Blazers entered free agency knowing one thing: It needed to improve its bench. That could be done in a number of different ways, but as it turns out, general manager Neil Olshey spent his energy looking for big men, and a big man he found in Chris Kaman.
On Thursday night, Portland came to terms with Chris Kaman on a two-year, $9...
