The Trail Blazers were coming off a disappointing first round loss to Nash's Phoenix Suns. Brandon Roy had missed half of the series after a late season knee injury. None of the Blazers' young wings had impressed in his absence. Both Roy and Greg Oden were expected back for the upcoming season and the feeling was if the Blazers could just stay healthy and...
