The Blazers are on the brink of changing how the NBA game is played. There are two things that stick out in my mind. Two things that every NBA team will try and fail to emulate.
1) The twin towers. I know, I know, it's been done. After the Rockets did it in the mid eighties with Hakeem and Sampson, the entire league moved that way...or tried to. You could say that the L*kers have themselves a duo, but I think that they will be a light version of the Blazers on the front line. People have said that the Spurs were the last to do it, but I think that they, along with most GM's, we're trying to find the next big two. SA was successful, but in this case Robinson was at the end of his career.
2)Three combo guard rotation. Has it been done? Roy, Rudy and Bayless all are SG's with PG skills or PG's with SG skills. I may be pushing it here, but do any one of them actually fit into the norm for a SG or a PG? Normally 2 guards fit the norm and one has multiple skills.
We could be a witness to change in the game itself; and how things are done in the future.
Watch as teams struggle to keep up.
