Prada: Blazers Vault Up NBA Watchability Rankings

15

Every year, Mike Prada at SBNation.com NBA puts together a watchability scale in which he ranks all 30 NBA teams in terms of how fun they are to watch. Last year, the Portland Trail Blazers finished No. 27 out of 30. This year, Prada slots Portland in at No. 14. ------------------------------- 14. Portland Trail Blazers: Last year, the Blazers continued their long tradition of being one of the slowest, least-imaginative teams in the NBA. They have their go-to meal, and they keep making it for dinner because it works. It's boring, but effective. But at least they added a new ingredient last year in Gerald Wallace to spice up the monotony, which is why they're ranked this high. Few players are as fun to watch in the league, because few players play with such reckless abandon. Wallace blocks shots, gets steals and provides some jaw-dropping athletic moves, all as a small forward. He's also athletic enough to play power forward, which means we get to see more interesting small lineups. After years of just being the same team, Nate McMillan's club now has an X-factor, and as cliche as that sounds, that's enough to make them worth watching. ------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
