Portland Trail Blazers X-factor in 2014-15 NBA season

NWSB Editor and Portland Trail Blazers Blogger Bryant Knox takes a look at Rip City's roster entering the 2014-15 NBA season and chooses an x-factor for the upcoming campaign. While Thomas Robinson is an option, CJ McCollum earns the nod. When players such as Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge go to the bench, scoring is in trouble...That is, unless McCollum can provide the shooting he did in college.

LaMarcus Aldridge – More Than an Offensive Powerhouse

Despite Damian Lillard’s rapid ascension to stardom, LaMarcus Aldridge is still the focal point of the Portland Trail Blazers for the immediate future. While he isn’t on Lillard’s level in terms of endorsements, appearances, or commercials, he is rightfully one of the most discussed players on the team. Fans at any level of fandom can argue over whether […] LaMarcus Aldridge – More Than an Offensive Powerhouse - Rip City Project - Rip City Project - A Portland Trailblazers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

LaMarcus Aldridge & the corner 3

Over the years, the corner three-pointer has become one of the more valuable shots in the NBA. Based on 82games.com analysis, the corner 3 is also the most efficient shot on the floor, averaging 118.8 points per 100 possessions, slightly above the low paint zones, which averages 117.1 points per 100 possessions.

Ailene Voisin: Gay joins Cousins in quest to make U.S. national team

Mark Cuban has his issues with basketball’s international governing body (FIBA). Paul George has a fractured leg. Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin are either not interested or interested but ailing. Kevin Durant, the face of Team USA, is full of surprises: He gains a new endorsement deal and withdraws from Team USA within a matter of hours, citing fatigue.

Ailene Voisin: A Q&A with Kings center DeMarcus Cousins

Ailene Voisin: A Q&A with Kings center DeMarcus Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins spent the past week here training with other candidates for the national team that will compete later this month in the FIBA World Cup in Spain. The withdrawal of power forwards Kevin Love, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge enhanced his chances to make the 12-man roster, though a final cutdown is not expected for a few weeks. DeMarcus Cousins says he likes the offseason moves by the Kings. “I feel like this is a whole new beginning for me and the Kings.” The Kings’ DeMarcus Cousins is determined to make Team USA, and says he’d be crushed if he was left...

Portland Trail Blazers: Is LaMarcus Aldridge or Damian Lillard the Face of the Franchise?

Which All-Star is the face of Portland basketball in this era: LaMarcus Aldridge or Damian Lillard? Yesterday's "Loopiest Mailbag Ever" unintentionally opened up a semi-serious and interesting topic that we should address posthaste. (Proof that following instincts, even into uncharted and strange territory, can be worthwhile.) One of the questions dealt with a hypothetical battle royale between Blazer players, which invoked visions of wrestling, Royal Rumbles, and Andre the Giant hoisting everyone over the top rope. Meandering through those images in the piece itself and the comments that...

NBA Virtual 1-on-1 Tournament: Tony Parker vs. LaMarcus Aldridge

The second matchup of this tournament sees our first battle of mismatches. Parker can't deal with the post-up game of Altridge, and LaMarcus can't handle Tony's speed. The next matchup in the 1-on-1 Summer Showdown is between hometown favorite Tony Parker and versatile offensive threat LaMarcus Aldridge. The Rules It is a half court game in which the scoring increments are 1 point for everything inside the arc, and 2 points for everything outside the arc. So long-distance bombers will do well in our tourney.  The higher seed stars off with the ball and the first player to 11 points wins....
