Where In The World Is Steve Nash?

Steve Nash

NWSB Insider and NBA Blogger Steve Lee wonders where in the world Steve Nash is. The former Phoenix Sun (and Dallas Maverick) has virtually disappeared with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The best Blazers game I’ve ever been to…

Brandon Roy

NWSB Insider and Portland Trail Blazers Blogger Jason Hartzog recaps what it was like being at the Rose Garden during Game 4 of the 2011 NBA playoffs against the Dallas Mavericks. Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd and Shawn Marion built a near-insurmountable lead heading into the fourth quarter. Than a shot by Brandon Roy and LaMarcus Aldridge gave the team hope.

Blazers vs. Mavericks: NBA love ‘em & hate ‘em breakdown

Portland vs. Dallas

NWSB Insider and Portland Trail Blazers blogger Jon Irwin breaks down the Blazers vs. Mavericks matchup. The Headline: The Blazers can’t do anything to stop O.J. Mayo, as they fall to the Mavs 114-91. L.A. and Matthews really came alive on defense, and the team played great on the boards.

NWSB Insider and Portland Trailblazers blogger Bryant Knox weighs in on the NBA’s best power forwards today and asks the question is LaMarcus Aldridge among the best? When Brandon Roy was still in Portland, he was the man and Aldridge was his sidekick. Not any more. Aldridge’s career-high 21.8 points and 8.7 rebounds in 2011 came in a season where the Blazers ran the slowest pace in the NBA. Watch out 2012.
