TRAIL BLAZERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

How accurate are Portland's shooters when open behind three-point line?

The Portland Trail Blazers made good use of the three-point line last season. Only two teams (the Cleveland Cavaliers and Houston Rockets) averaged more threes per game, and only seven were more accurate.It was an impressive and effective attack, but next year's Blazers look much different and there's a fear they won't be as good on offense. In search of optimism, The Oregonian...

Obviously the sheer volume of Trail Blazers jerseys is impressive. On top of that the randomness of the players jerseys is top notch. Here are my favorite jerseys by row: 1st row: Marcus Camby. There’s something about Marcus...

Can Phil Pressey make the Portland Trail Blazers' final roster?

The Portland Trail Blazers have 13 guaranteed contracts on their books for next season, and right now none of them are a true backup point guard. (C.J. McCollum is a combo guard who will likely assume ball-handling duties off the bench, but Portland needs him to score more than anything else.)This leaves the door open for former Boston Celtics dynamo Phil Pressey to squeak in and...

Portland Trail Blazers Roster Breakdown – Mason Plumlee

Ushering in a new era of Portland Trail Blazers basketball seems to be the theme of the 2015 NBA offseason. The Rip City roster no longer resembles the crew that had back-to-back 50-win seasons over the past two years, but one thing it can hang its hat on is that youth and potential have become the beacons of hope in an otherwise confusing time. In a 15-part series, Oregon Sports...

Terry Stotts, Damian Lillard and the shapeless Trail Blazers

After a phenomenal 50-win season followed by a tough first round exit, the upcoming season does not look promising for the Portland Trailblazers. Wesley Matthews and Nicolas Batum, arguably two of the most versatile two-way wings in the league, are now gone; solid role players Arron Afflalo and Robin Lopez are gone; even LaMarcus Aldridge, the cornerstone of the franchise for the...

C.J. McCollum Talks Damian Lillard, His Game And The 2015-16 Portland Trail Blazers

By Joshua Vinson / @TheJoshAVinson There are three seasons in the NBA: the regular season, the postseason and the free-agency season, which may be just as interesting as the first two. Every team goes through this, but one team saw a complete face-lift to its starting core this offseason. The Portland Trail Blazers, a team that was a tweak or two away from competing in the NBA Finals...

Portland Trail Blazers: CJ McCollum Could Be This Season’s Breakout Star

Why the Blazers were smart to start a rebuild

The Portland Trail Blazers won 50-plus games both last season and in 2013-14. They were considered by many one of the most-talented teams in the NBA. However, varying circumstances saw the team eliminated from the playoffs early both seasons. They were never a legitimate title contender over these past two seasons. That’s the harsh reality of it. Another harsh reality is the fact...
