Prada: Blazers Rank 27th Out Of 30 On NBA Watchability Scale

Mike Prada of SB Nation.com has re-compiled his NBA Watchability Scale, which ranks the thirty teams in the NBA in terms of how much fun they are to watch. Prada explains, "Winning is not necessarily the main determining factor. There are bad teams that are eminently watchable, and there are good teams that are really tough on the eyes." In that vein he has ranked the Portland Trail Blazers 27th out of 30 teams in terms of watchability, docking points for their slow-down offense and misfit pieces. ------------------------------------ As good as Andre Miller was down the stretch, we still don't know if he can fit in with Brandon Roy, LaMarcus Aldridge and all the rest of the pieces when they're all healthy. We have no clue what to expect from Greg Oden, if he plays at all. The two saving graces are Roy and dynamic small forward Nicolas Batum, but it's hard for me to believe that Roy will ever get back to his 2008-09 level after dealing with yet another knee injury. He might be good, but he's no longer the same athletically-gifted guy that burst onto the scene two years ago. That leaves Batum and his chasedown blocks as things to enjoy. They're fun - but they don't happen often, and you can just watch highlights of them anyway. ------------------------------------ -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
