Trail Blazers "hate" idea of shortened NBA games

If the NBA was looking for a full bill of support for their experimentation with shortening a game from 48 to 44 minutes, they didn't find it with the Portland Trail Blazers. Not one player, or even Coach Stotts for that matter spoke positively about the experiment the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets will test Sunday night. "You've got a large roster, and 240 minutes...

Portland Trail Blazers season preview: Team projections

In the first part of this three part series, I took a look at the Trail Blazers’ roster. Portland will be sporting  a squad that is deep and talented in the Forward and Center positions.

LaMarcus Aldridge not focused on NBA TV deal, still wants to retire as best Blazer ever

When LaMarcus Aldridge first got on the team, I thought he was destined to be the second or even third fiddle team on the Portland Trail Blazers. Brandon Roy was leading the go-to guy for the Blazers then and Greg Oden had so much potential coming into the league. Now Roy is retired and Oden is barely hanging on as he went through multiple injuries and personal problems. Aldridge...
