Smith: Blazers Are Solid Bunch That No One Wants To Face In Playoffs

7
Sekou Smith of NBA.com likes the new-look Portland Trail Blazers. --------------------------- In short, the Trail Blazers are what they are. And if you look closely, you might actually like what you see. They are a solid bunch from top to bottom, even without two of the franchise’s biggest draft picks of the past 20 years. ... "That Portland team is good. They’re really good. They’ve got size, they’ve got versatility," Sixers coach Doug Collins told reporters. ""Jamal Crawford is going to be a really terrific player for them. Raymond Felton is going to be big for them." No doubt about it. And come playoff time, this is probably team most everyone else in the Western Conference will want to avoid. --------------------------- ed: bumped to front page
