  4. Cole Aldrich, nearly four years after being drafted in lottery, gets double-double in first career start

    Mar 12, 2014, 11:11 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    BOSTON – As a swarm of media enclosed Cole Aldrich, the playful calls began from his teammates in the less-crowded areas of the New York Knicks locker room. “Cole Stoudemire!” “Cole Chandler!” Aldrich could hardly contain his smile as he discussed his first career start with larger-than-usual-for-him audience. Without the Knicks’ highly paid big men,…

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Portland Trail Blazers

    Thomas Robinson has been getting extra run with the rash of Blazers injuries up front — including All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge — but now he is joining their ranks. Robinson suffered a left patella strain during the first half of Portland’s win in Denver Tuesday night, reports Chris Haynes at CSNNW.com. He is listed as is…

  6. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Heat on the top, Sixers fall to very bottom

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:49 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors vs Miami Heat

    We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…

  7. Blazers’ Thomas Robinson with a vicious block of Corey Brewer’s dunk attempt (VIDEO)

    Thomas Robinson

    This, my friends, is a highlight. Corey Brewer of the Timberwolves had no idea his breakaway dunk attempt was about to be contested — as you see the play unfold, it seems like Thomas Robinson would simply run by as Brewer elevates, like so many defenders do in similar situations. Brewer rises as if the…

  8. Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge out at least a week with a groin strain

    Feb 18, 2014, 10:39 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    For the first time this season a Portland Trail Blazer starter is going to miss a game due to injury (one of the real secrets of their success this season). All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge will be out at least a week with a left groin strain, the team announced. After a week he will be re-evaluated,…

  9. Blazers’ reserve big man Joel Freeland out at least a month with sprained knee

    Feb 12, 2014, 8:46 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    When it happened it looked like something worse. Portland reserve big man Joel Freeland was battling for rebounding position in the first quarter Tuesday night when it looks like Nicolas Batum is pushed back and his foot hits Freeland’s right knee, which buckled and gave way. You can see a gif of the injury here…

  10. Thomas Robinson was yelling “lunch meat” every time Aldridge touched ball

    Jan 3, 2014, 12:02 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Portland Trail Blazers

    Thomas Robinson wasn’t getting a lot of time on the court Thursday night — he played garbage time in the second half of the fourth quarter of the Trail Blazers’ blowout of the Bobcats, that was it — but he was still a part of the story after the game. It started with this tweet…

  11. Trail Blazers headed toward same trouble as last season

    Nov 18, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Terry Stotts, Damian Lillard

    I was the only member of this site’s staff to predict the Trail Blazers would make the playoffs. Now, Portland is 8-2, the NBA’s third-best record behind only the Spurs and Pacers. Time to gloat? Not quite. The Trail Blazers started 20-15 last season, heavily relying on their starting lineup. At that point of the…

  12. Blazers’ Thomas Robinson cited for driving 107 mph

    Thomas Robinson

    Thomas Robinson was selected with fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft by the Sacramento Kings, yet he’s playing for his third NBA team entering just his second NBA season. Why is that, you may ask? The latest report out of Portland may shed some light on his situation. From Wendy Owen of The Oregonian:…

    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    Last season: The Rockets began the year with the somewhat surprising trade for James Harden — surprising because of the Thunder’s choice to deal him so soon instead of pursuing a title with him in place for one more season. It was the right call on Houston’s part, as Harden immediately turned into the offensive…

    Thomas Robinson

    Thomas Robinson is going to get a chance in Portland as part of a revamped Trail Blazers bench. We’ll see what he does with that chance. What he did with it Sunday was throw down a big putback dunk, pretty much pushing teammate Robin Lopez out of the way to do it. Still, this was…

    Hornets Trail Blazers Basketball

    Last Season: The Blazers spent the first half of the season threatening for a playoff spot, but one of the worst benches in NBA history ultimately sunk the team’s chances. Damian Lillard‘s scoring prowess made him the fourth unanimous Rookie of the Year winner in NBA history, and it simulatenously provided hope that Portland’s current core…

    Kevin McHale, Thomas Robinson

    Thomas Robinson, when the season begins, will be playing for his third team in two years. He was drafted by the Kings, traded mid-season to the Rockets and traded again in the offseason to the Trail Blazers. The last top-five pick to play for so many teams in his first two years was drafted in…

  19. LaMarcus Aldridge admits to extreme frustration, but not trade request

    Aug 31, 2013, 6:20 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    LaMarcus Alrdridge earned a second consecutive All-Star appearance last year, but it essentially went to waste as his Portland Trail Blazers finished 33-49 in spite of their big man’s best efforts. That led to multiple reports saying Aldridge was looking to be moved this summer, but the player himself denied everything once the original report…

  20. Batum says Aldridge doesn’t want to be traded, just wants team to improve

    Aug 23, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Nicolas Batum

    What else was Nicolas Batum going to say? That his team’s best player wants out? Rumors have swirled this summer that Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge wants out of Portland and his people have asked for a trade. Aldridge has denied this but the talk has continued to swirl. Nicolas Batum was asked about those rumors, speaking…

    One year ago Thomas Robinson was the No. 5 overall pick, now he enters he second NBA season already on his third team. He was drafted into the mess that was Sacramento, was traded to Houston where he showed some flashes but where he was mostly an asset to be moved in the Rockets’ Dwight…
