Despite all the trade talk etc. i think we should be discussing more important stuff like.............
Why the Blazers will win the NW
* We have possibly the deepest team in the NBA (although the L*kers will argue that)
* We arent relying on 2 or 3 guys playing heavy minutes, apart from broy everyone plays about 30 mins or less, meaning if we have injuries it is easier to cover, and our main rotation guys dont get too tired at the backend of the season
* Our +/- is significantly better despite playing a huge number of road games against quality opposition, last year we ended with -3 points per game or something like that. At the moment we are +5, which normally you could translate into a 50 win season
* We have positive assist to TO, rebounding, blocks, steals, practically every major category except FT%.
This is posted at midnight, please feel free to add some points that i have missed, but i really think we can win the NW this season, team chemistry and balance is looking great so far
