TRAIL BLAZERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

LaMarcus Aldridge has surgery on left thumb

LaMarcus Aldridge underwent successful surgery to repair a ligament in his left thumb on Monday. Aldridge damaged his thumb early in the season. The Blazers announced Aldridge would miss up to eight weeks, which turned out to be just a bit conservative, as Aldridge returned to the line up within days, opting to put off the surgery until after the season. It was a gritty, courageous...

Portland Trail Blazers – DeAndre Jordan Needs To Be Their Big Splash Target

There is a rich history of basketball in Portland, and a beloved history at that. But one thing that the Trail Blazers have lacked for seemingly ages is a dominant big man. Sure, they’ve made due and had some great years with Robin Lopez, Meyers Leonard, Marcus Camby, Greg Oden, Joel Pryzbilla, Arvydas Sabonis, Kevin Duckworth, Sam Bowie, Mychael Thompson, Tom Owens, Bill Walton...

The Time Is Now For The Portland Trail Blazers To Trade Nicolas Batum

The Portland Trail Blazers are set to enter the 2015 NBA offseason with a potential roster overhaul on the horizon.

According to CSNNW.com’s Jabari Young, Neil Olshey may look to package Nicolas Batum and...

Portland Trail Blazers Would Be Smart To Rely Heavier On C.J. McCollum Next Year

The Portland Trail Blazers already have a star point guard in Damian Lillard and hope to retain his backcourt mate, soon-to-be free-agent shooting guard Wesley Matthews, who might be the team’s most valuable player. Given the franchise’s desire to keep this duo intact, backup guard C.J. McCollum is left with less than ideal minutes. While that might be the case, he has the...

Portland Trail Blazers: The Perfect Offseason

Source: Steve Dykes/Getty Images North America By Troy Tauscher: Staff Writer at Hoopstuff… 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...

Robin Lopez is 'very open to coming back' to the Trail Blazers

While LaMarcus Aldridge will certainly be the Portland Trail Blazers' top priority this summer, they also have a few other players who will be free agents – among them, Robin Lopez. After bouncing around the league a bit, Lopez finally seems to have found a home in Portland. He's an ideal fit in Terry Stotts' offense, not to mention next to LaMarcus Aldridge. He's the keystone...

WATCH: Damian Lilliard delivers great graduation speech

Former Weber State basketball player Damian Lillard left school a year early when he decided to enter the 2012 NBA draft. It was a gamble, especially with him coming from a small school. It also paid off, as Lillard was selected by the Portland Blazers with the sixth pick that June. Three years later, and Lillard’s NBA career has taken off. He’s helped turn the Blazers into...

Blazers post 'we don't lose to Spanish players' in locker room

The Portland Trail Blazers had a motivational sign in their locker room before their first playoff game against the Memphis Grizzlies that some may find offensive. The sign included the phrase “We don’t lose to Spanish players,” among other things. What does this mean? It’s probably not a coincidence that All-Star center Marc Gasol, who...Read More

Adam Morrison trolled fan who made JJ Redick comment

The 2005-06 men’s college basketball season was basically the Adam Morrison and J.J. Redick show.  The Gonzaga and Duke stars battled for the scoring title – Morrison won, averaging 28.1 points a game – and were named co-national players of the year.
