Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Marc Stein of ESPN.com ranks the Portland Trail Blazers in the No. 21 spot in his preseason ESPN NBA power rankings.

Marc Stein of ESPN.com has released his preseason NBA Power Rankings, listing the Portland Trail Blazers in the No. 21 spot.

Can Damian Lillard trump Unibrow Davis and actually win the ROY race? Hard to fathom. Will Lillard be sufficiently dazzling to buy new coach Terry Stotts some time and placate Blazermaniacs as their heroes try to rebuild around Aldridge, Batum and the flashy new PG? Quite conceivable.

The Blazers are ranked No. 5 among Northwest Division teams and No. 12 among Western Conference teams, leading the Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings.
