Got a chance to watch this young man play against the Spurs last night. This kid is legitimately good. With him and Aldridge, the Blazers have a chance to build a very good team for several years. He's easily the best rookie this season, looks to have Rose-like skills and athleticism. Hope the Blazers can actually build on this and start challenging in the west. I actually like that team quite a bit.

they have alot of young pieces between Lilliard, Leonard, Claver, Will Barton and Joel Freeland. Hopefully they can get some time to grow as a unit. I like what I am seeing from the team and Stotts.

He reminds me of Brandon Roy. Nothing spectacular but before you know it he has 24 points. Just so smooth that everything looks easy.

I love the Blazers starting 5. But the bench is horrendous. Still, they're playing a lot better then I thought they would this season. I figured they'd be in contention for worst record in the league.

The lack of depth is awful. It shows when the team beats some of the better teams they faced then face plant against wizards and kings. Rough rollercoaster season ahead.

Yeah, the bench is hurting them right now, but like I said, a decent draft and couple of FA pickups or trades can sort that out quickly.

Yep. He's got superstar potential. Not kidding.

First rookie in history to have 20 plus points with at least 5 assits and five rebounds (I beleive three games in a row). IN HISTORY of the NBA!

He is smooth. He reminds me of Chauncy Billups (play style wise) but is way faster and more athletic than Billups ever was. He is a much better passer too. This kid is a star. He needs to play better with Aldridge, maybe develop some pick and roll.

Blazers are starting to remind me of the Seahawks. Young and lead by a rookie, but they are starting to come together as a team. They have a serious shot at the playoffs this year, just wish they could get 2-3 quality bench guys.

The bench will prevent them from doing anything significant in the postseason, assuming they make it. Still, a lot to like if you're a Blazers fan, although I will say that Aldridge appears to have regressed a bit this year. We'll see how it plays out.
