Sport24 previews the Blazers' season (now translated)

8

I don't have time to translate this, if somebody else wants to, I'll delete this. Later: please see Kaboomm's translation in the comments. Here's the key part (computer translator, sorry): Objectives 2010-2011: Led by Brandon Roy (who promised to speak in the dressing room and demanded more balls in attack) and LaMarcus Aldridge (who gained weight during the summer), the Blazers are expected to rule the West with the Thunder in the future. With the experience of Andre Miller and Marcus Camby, they can even pretend to shake the Lakers now. At least they could if Greg Oden and Joel Przybilla did not subscribe to the infirmary. Difficult to say when those two are operational. Meanwhile, it would be better if Camby stays healthy ... An observation that applies to the entire roster of Portland, not spared by injuries last season, including Nicolas Batum. Barring last-minute changes, Frenchy also retains the starting spot, despite the huge contract signed by Wesley Matthews (34 million over five years). They predict between 3rd and 5th in the West.
