NWSB Blogger and NBA insider Steve Lee breaks down what the NBA’s most prominent Northwest Hoops Stars have been up to over the last 30 days and hands out some grades. Let’s take a quick look as to how players such as Martell Webster, Terrence Ross, Kevin Love, Spencer Hawes, Tony Wroten, and Terrence Jones have been doing in 2013. It is not too late for the hometown boys to improve on their grades, but some extra credit work is much needed.
NWSB insider and Portland Trail Blazers blogger Bryant Knox breaks down why Damian Lillard should have been elected to the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. Lillard is just a rookie, but he’s having a standout season. He’s a top-15 player in both points and assists, and he plays a style of basketball that caters to All-Star Weekend. Plus, imagine what he could do with Blake Griffin, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant on his side.

Portland Trail Blazers blogger Jason Green points out LaMarcus Aldridge has reason to celebrate in 2012. He’s most likely going to be an NBA All Star, and will participate at the game in Orlando. A year ago, he was one of the league’s biggest All-Star snubs. Despite averaging 21.3 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocks at the time. This season at home he is averaging 22.4 ppg and 7.8 rpg.
