  1. Can the Dallas Mavericks repeat as NBA champions?

    Dec 16, 2011, 5:16 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    After a trying, decade-long run that consistently placed them along the title’s periphery, the Dallas Mavericks finally claimed their first ever NBA championship last June. The fact that Dirk and the Mavs are the reigning champs still seems like a hazy dream — a vision almost too similar to a storybook to be real, and an…

  2. Amnesty players may not help high payroll teams much

    Nov 28, 2011, 8:43 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Here was the scenario: Teams would use the new amnesty clause in the labor deal to wipe out the oversized contracts of guys who could still contribute some (just not at the level they are getting paid). As a hypothetical example, we will make up a player named B. Roy who plays in the Pacific…

  3. Memphis to sit Zach Randolph, Tony Allen against Portland

    Apr 12, 2011, 10:27 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Sacramento Kings

    Well, didn’t see this coming. Memphis is sitting Zach Randolph and Tony Allen in a key seedings game against Portland Tuesday night, according to a tweet from the Commercial Appeal. Why? Well they will say its to rest guys but if you like conspiracies you might say they are aiming — you could say tanking…

  4. Charlotte sends Gerald Wallace to Portland for picks, savings

    Feb 24, 2011, 6:34 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    Gerald Wallace for Joel Przybilla, Dante Cunningham, Sean Marks, and two future first round picks. If we reduce the trade between the Charlotte Bobcats and Portland Trailblazers to that simple form, both teams did well for themselves. The playoff team acquired a talented piece to complement their already existing core, and the rebuilding club cleared…

  5. Marcus Camby doesn’t want to be traded

    Dec 29, 2010, 8:48 AM EDT

    Camby_Nash

    Portland is very actively looking for trades — GM Rich Cho realizes that the old Roy/Oden plan is dead and it is time to restructure. Andre Miller is drawing a lot of interest and may well be moved. Marcus Camby also is on the trade block — except he’s not cool with that, according to…

  6. Report: Nets looking to land Andre Miller along with ‘Melo

    Dec 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    millertrade

    The Denver Nuggets have suspended trade talks for Carmelo Anthony through the weekend, as Anthony is currently at home with his family after the untimely death of his sister. It was the classy and right thing for the Nuggets to do. But it doesn’t stop the rumor mill from cranking. The Nets are hoping to…

  7. Saturday Starting 5: Injury Damage

    Nov 20, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Portland Trail Blazers

    Hey, so, you’re stuck with me on the weekends, so I thought we’d put together something you can count on. Every weekend here at PBT we’ll have the Saturday Starting Five. Five elements, chosen thematically (so I’m not just basically vomiting words onto a screen for you) and brought for discussion about the NBA. Today’s…

  8. Armon Johnson puts on a rather quiet show

    Oct 27, 2010, 2:43 PM EDT

    Armon Johnson, Channing Frye

    Box score watchers will see Armon Johnson’s six-point, three-assist outing against the Phoenix Suns as a marginal contribution, yet it was anything but. Almost all of the Blazer regulars put on a show, but Johnson, a second round pick partially responsible for picking up some of the minutes left behind by Jerryd Bayless, stood out…

  9. Phoenix starts the season with an impressively atrocious rebounding performance

    Oct 27, 2010, 1:25 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Portland Trail Blazers

    The Phoenix Suns’ start to the season was certainly memorable, if not all that successful. Steve Nash  had roughly one bajillion turnovers in his efforts to keep the Suns’ offense up to snuff, but Phoenix completely fell apart in the fourth while the Blazers attacked from all angles. Hedo Turkoglu was even worse defensively than…

  10. Jerryd Bayless’ career undergoes a corrective measure

    Oct 24, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Portland vs. Dallas

    In 2008 the Portland Trailblazers drafted Jerryd Bayless with the eleventh pick in the draft. It was, at the time, considered to be a moderate reach, but some described it as a “best player available” type move. What was curious was that the Blazers already had All-Star Brandon Roy at shooting guard. They had drafted…

  11. Jerryd Bayless traded to New Orleans for first round pick

    Oct 23, 2010, 8:29 PM EDT

    Jerryd Bayless, Matt Barnes

    Jerryd Bayless was drafted by a team that didn’t need him. He’s a combo-guard, of the most combo of combo-guards. His best skill is attacking the basket and getting buckets. He doesn’t manage an offense, he’s not a great distributor, he’s not an offense-manager. But repeatedly, Nate McMillan told him he was going to have…

  12. Blazers will sign Fabricio Oberto

    Oct 23, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    fab

    The Portland Trail Blazers, as you may have heard, kind of have a problem with healthy bigs. Greg Oden, still out. Joel Przybilla, still out. Jeff Pendergraph, now out for the year. Basically, if I’m Marcus Camby, I’m investing in tape. Lots and lots of tape. And the Blazers, apparently, are investing in a new…

  13. Joel Przybilla won’t return until mid-November

    Oct 19, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    Joel Przybilla Yao Ming

    At present, the top four centers on the Blazers roster are missing time due to injury. Tread softly, Dante Cunningham. Just so the basketball gods can rub it in, three of those four centers options have already been ruled out for opening night, with the fourth being merely probable. Greg Oden and Jeff Pendergraph weren’t…

  14. Brandon Roy thinks Rudy Fernandez will play along

    Oct 13, 2010, 1:09 PM EDT

    0920-rudy-fernandez-300

    When Rudy Fernandez says he wants out of Portland (and he can’t say say it unless he wants to eat another fine, but he has said it), what he really means is that he wants out of the NBA. He was absolutely forlorn on Media Day (you can see the video of his Media Day…

  15. NBA Season Preview: The Portland Trailblazers

    Oct 5, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Last season: 50-32, a fantastic achievement considering the comical amount of injuries the Blazers suffered last season. What this team was able to accomplish with Juwan Howard and Jeff Pendergraph, and then later with Marcus Camby, a mid-season acquisition, at center was pretty amazing. Head Coach: Nate McMillan, who, right or wrong, is no stranger…

  16. Greg Oden confident he'll be good to go for camp

    Aug 2, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

    We’re three full seasons into Greg Oden’s NBA career, and he’s played just 82 games. It’s not fair. Not to the Blazers, who invested the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft in Oden, not to the Blazer faithful, and certainly not to Oden himself. Every nightmare must come to an end, but Oden’s…

  17. Teams are interested in Roger Mason for who he's been, but is that who he'll be next season?

    Jul 3, 2010, 7:40 PM EDT

    When the San Antonio Spurs picked up Roger Mason Jr. two years ago in free agency, it was an absolute steal. Mason seemed like an ideal fit alongside the Spurs’ big three; as a knock-down shooter who could fill in at either guard spot and handle the ball a bit, Roger fit the Spurs’ needs…

  18. Don't be shocked if Rudy Fernandez finds a new home tonight

    Jun 24, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

    As promising and charismatic as the Portland Trailblazers’ young core was (and still is, for those really paying attention), Rudy Fernandez always seemed to be a bit superfluous. Even during Rudy’s terrific rookie season, he seemed like a placeholder; it was glorious to watch him thrive and produce while he could, but Brandon Roy was…

  19. Sam Presti denies interviewing for Kevin Pritchard's job

    Jun 8, 2010, 12:28 PM EDT

    I’m not sure if there was a specific moment where things went sour between Kevin Pritchard and the Portland Trailblazers, but at this point the funk in the air is undeniable. And Sam Presti doesn’t want any of it stinking up his place with the Thunder or his status as one of the top GMs…

  20. Report: Blazers searching for Pritchard replacement, may hire Jerry West

    Jun 6, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Seriously, if I’m Kevin Pritchard, I’m going to the beach. After Adrian Wojnarowski (who by the way is collecting breaking story scalps this weekend like Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall while everyone else is focused on some silly game Sunday night) broke the news that the Blazers had hired a head hunter to…

  21. Rudy Fernandez isn't drinking the Blazer Kool-Aid these days

    May 27, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    A long, long time ago, things were undeniably pleasant in Blazerland. Brandon Roy’s rise to stardom had invigorated an already fervent fan base, LaMarcus Aldridge was well on his way to becoming an impact player, and a collection of young talent spearheaded by the imminent Rookie of the Year, Greg Oden, looked set to take…

  22. NBA Draft: Blazers admit they are looking to move up, but just a little

    May 27, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Portland has been one of the teams mentioned as a possible trading partner for the Minnesota Timberwolves at for or the Sacramento Kings at five. Maybe not. Blazers left-hanging-in-the-wind General Manager Kevin Pritchard told the Portland Tribune the Blazers are looking to move up from their No. 22 position on the draft board, but not…

  23. Greg Oden couldn't join his teammates at the game, but could be at the pool

    May 24, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

    You know, it’s rough being Greg Oden. I mean, the guy goes through a lot. He’s constantly compared to one of the greatest players in the NBA, all because he was selected ahead of Durant in the draft (like you’re supposed to be better than the players selected after you, hah!). He deals with more…

  24. NBA Playoffs: Robin Lopez inches toward his return

    Apr 27, 2010, 11:54 AM EDT

    It’s been obvious for some time now that Robin Lopez is quite important to the Phoenix Suns, but he’s even more so after the Suns took a 3-2 series lead over the Blazers last night. With just one win between Phoenix from the second round of the playoffs, I think it’s a bit natural to…
