NWSB Insider and Portland Trail Blazers blogger Steve Lee breaks down the situation regarding Rip City and LaMarcus Aldridge. Although the three-time NBA All-Star has stated he would like to stay in Portland, a step back in team success could change his mind. With free agency around the corner, could PDX target as a free agent next summer? Or even trade the big man?
NWSB Editor Bryant Knox wonders if the Portland Trail Blazers have found their newest NBA rival. In a recently matchup with the Golden State Warriors, a fight broke out that sparked some bad blood. Both teams are finding success, and both teams have star performers such as Damian Lillard, Lamarcus Aldridge, Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum, Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala and David Lee.
Bryant Knox previews the Portland Trail Blazers Jan. 11 matchup against the Golden State Warriors. The Blazers are coming off a shocking win against the Miami Heat, and they’ll look to keep momentum going with a road win against Golden State. The key matchup in this one is between LaMarcus Aldridge and David Lee, but the battles between Nicolas Batum and Harrison Barnes, as well as Stephen Curry and Damian Lillard, will be fun to watch.
