In pre-season, Blazers rookie Allen Crabbe is fighting for minutes and finding his way as a pro—all while strapped to a Minnie Mouse backpack.
Allen Crabbe is a pretty laid back dude. It makes sense, considering he was born and raised in Los Angeles, and spent three years playing college basketball in Berkeley—two cities notorious for fostering chilled-out men and women of all types. One of two Blazer rookies who will be on the Opening Night roster for 2013-14, Crabbe’s laid back demeanor was in full effect following ...
How Nicolas Batum spent his summer vacation: Helping France win its first EuroBasket Championship.
Instagram has been the best place to catch up on what the Blazers have been up to in these last few weeks before the start of training camp and the launch of the 2013-14 NBA season. Damian Lillard has been hosting a weekly rap battle of sorts. Wesley Matthews has p...
August was a month of changes for the Blazers—both large and small.
A wise man once said, "The only thing constant is change" (or there abouts, depending on the translation). This age-old truism is no more obvious than in the NBA. With rosters being small, front offices fairly fluid and marketing initiatives shifting on an almost day-to-day basis, the NBA is in an almost constant state of f...More

The Blazers' newest addition will be wearing a familiar number.
Free agent signings tend to all happen the same way, more or less. With a finite number of free agents available—all of them known entities—rumors begin to fly as soon as the free agency moratorium ends. Names are matched with teams based on wish and speculation, connected national reporters make claims backed by well-placed sources, players take meetings with the teams they’re inter...
Summer League is over and basketball is on a break...for now.
"Basketball Never Stops." This slogan comes courtesy of Nike, and during the lockout summer of 2011 it served the purpose of showing fans of the NBA that basketball could exist without its highest professional league. Emblazoned on shirts worn by barnstorming professionals that summer, some of whom made a brief visit to the Chiles Center on the University of Portland campu...More
Amid the noise of free agency, the Blazers have quietly improved.
The eyes of the sports world were fixed intently on the NBA as soon as the bell rung on the annual free agency period. The prize catch, Dwight Howard, proved to be just a little more competent with social media than many leading news agencies, and just slightly less annoying than Amanda Bynes, adding a bit of new media theatricality to the over-hyped proceedings. When the dust settled, More
The Blazers have a tough choice when it comes to LaMarcus Aldridge.
The NBA offseason acquisition and trade period has officially begun, and that means every team in the league is scrambling to make the biggest splash. The Blazers are no exception, although what the team might choose to do and which players they decide to pursue probably won’t make the boldest headlines. The Blazers are (hopefully) opting out of the Dwight Howard chase tha...
