The Portland Trail Blazers got a lot of love as a very good team this season, and justifiably so. They were never genuine title contenders, but they had star power, good chemistry, and the record to show that they were a few pieces away from being top tier. It was really great for a franchise...
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Portland guard Arron Afflalo will miss his fifth straight game with a strained right shoulder, and the Trail Blazers also will be without center Chris Kaman on Wednesday night in Game 2 against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Coach Terry Stotts said Wednesday that Kaman twisted his left ankle in practice Tuesday when the Trail Blazers were going through some of the Grizzlies...

One game remains in the regular season for the Portland Trail Blazers, and they could face any of four teams in the first round of the playoffs: the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs. No matter which they face, they will begin on the road. And yet, even as that inevitable challenge awaits them, starting away from the Moda Center is the...
Basketball players do a lot of things very well. Fighting, however, is not one of those things.
If there ever was an incident that personified the sometimes perceived on-court faux toughness of the NBA, it’s what happened Wednesday night in Portland between the Blazers and the Los Angeles Clippers.
The skirmish began in the third quarter when Clippers guard Chris Paul went for...

If ever a team needed a solid stiff arm on the way to victory, it was Portland Wednesday night in the Moda Center.
Instead, it was the Los Angeles Clippers’ Chris Paul delivering the winning shot.
Earlier in the game, Paul paid tribute to Nic Batum’s infamous French uppercut to Spain’s Juan Carlos Navarro in the 2012 Olympic quarterfinals with a straight arm posted to Chris...
A skirmish between the Clippers and Blazers broke out Wednesday night after a tussle under the basket between Chris Paul and Chris Kaman. Kaman was fighting with CP3 for a rebound in the third quarter, and the point guard managed to steal the ball away from the much larger center. Kaman, who apparently reacted from...Read 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!

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!

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...
