Portland's Thomas Robinson is no bust

​ I feel bad for Thomas Robinson. I really do. It seems like the NBA is as open and fair a competition as you could ever devise to find out who the best basketball players are in the world. If you can’t cut it in the NBA, it seems like you should have nobody to blame for yourself. I think that’s the case—for the most part. Sometimes, though, a player’s personal development...

Who On The Portland Trail Blazers’ Bench Will Step Up This Season?

In my first articles, I gave explanations and breakdowns on the five starting players for the Portland Trail Blazers. They were first because they’re the best and most important players on the team; this is why, to be bluntly obvious, they’re starters. No one on the bench, on the other hand, doesn’t figure to play more than 18 minutes a game – at least, I hope so. Last year’s...

Which Portland Trail Blazers prospect has the highest upside entering 2014-15 NBA season?

Youth and Potential When you look at the Portland Trail Blazers roster entering the 2014-15 NBA season, it’s clear that there’s a monumental disparity between what the starters have done and what the bench has done in the recent past. In fact, the second unit has been the worst in the league in numerous categories for two years running, while the starters have been No. 1 in...

Portland Trail Blazers – Salvation Lies Within

If you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse.  The Portland Trail Blazers didn’t have a draft pick, lacked the cap space to add a significant free agent, and the ones they did bring in are more glue than substance.  But this team’s future success isn’t dependent on outside talent, but more so on the current personnel getting better. I’m talking to you CJ McCollum...
