Predicting how the LaMarcus Aldridge saga ends for the Trail Blazers

LaMarcus Aldridge

NWSB Editor Bryant Knox gives us his thoughts on the LaMarcus Aldridge situation entering the 2013-14 NBA season. The Portland Trail Blazers dealt with trade rumors all summer regarding their All-Star, and quite frankly, GM Neil Olshey would be smart to weigh his options. That said, he would also be smart to see this thing through, as he has cap flexbility and budding stars in Nicolas Batum and Damian Lillard on the roster. If Aldridge is smart, he’ll look beyond this year…

Trail Blazers: Should we expect possible Rip City struggles?

Meyers Leonard

NWSB Insider and Portland Trail Blazers blogger Steve Lee gives us a few things to watch out for entering the Trail Blazers’ third week of the 2013 NBA preseason. Steve urges caution Rip City. If Damian Lillard was the engine that drove the Blazers last year, any sort of falters this season could be detrimental to the club. Last season the Blazers were among teams in the bottom of the standings, this year, the additions of Dorell Wright, C.J McCollum, Allen Crabbe should bump numbers up.
