(I apologize if someone else has posted on this. I haven't noticed it)
Few teams have more than two rookies on their roster. Even fewer have more than three. But five rookies is almost unheard of. What is even wilder is that the Blazers sport rookies at the 1-5 spots (Lillard, Barton, Claver, Freeland, Leonard). So, is there any chance that all five get on the floor at once this year? I think I saw it in preseason, but not in the regular season?
Would this be a first in the NBA?
Will the Blazers do it if (knock on wood) we have another injury or two, we fall out of the playoff picture, or we are on either side of some lopsided games?
Should we, the fans, push Stotts to make history?
(I know trades are way more interesting, but there's so much trade talk right now and the truth is, we don't have any trade chips, so, why not a little discussion on this rare occurrence?)
