Fully Loaded, Portland Trailblazers

In NBA, PHILOSOPHY OF SPORT, SPORTS on October 26, 2008 at UTC.58.31.

The Portland Trailblazers are loaded with talent. All-Star Brandon Roy is returning to lead a young hot team in the Western conference. Greg Oden is the biggest addition recovering from his injury that ket him out of the lineup for the entire season.

Rudy Fernandez back from his silver medal match against the gold medal winning USA team is must see tv. This kid has length, size and crazy ability. He’s joined by his Team Spain teammate Sergio Rodriguez. Miami native Steve Blake started last season and looks to continue as hte floor general this season.

In the front court with Oden is LaMarcus Aldridge & Travis Outlaw. Martell Webster is out ith an injury and is expected to miss considerable time. However, with all their depth this figures to play in Fernandez’s favor as he anticipates a decisive role in the rotation.

Nicolas Batum, a little known French commodity has impressed the coaching staff in the preseason and he’s expected to be in the rotation as well. Channing Frye, Raef LaFrentz, Jerryd Bayless & Joel Pryzbilla round out the roster. This Blazer team is stacked from top to bottom.
