Underestimating Portland


Just wanted tho throw it out there, I think alot of people are underestimating portlands roster for next year. Think about it we have an allstar in LMA one of the best power forwards in the league. We have Nicolus Batum, the dudes only 24 and could very easily become an allstar. Shoot if luol deng is an allstar than Batum isent as far as it seems.

We have ANOTHER potential allstar in Damian Lillard, I know im saying potential alot but come on, who dosent think lillard will become an allstar this year or next year? Now adding Robin Lopez to take the stress off of LMA is huge! Robin is only 25 and is not as bad as he is made out to be. Also a great player in T-Rob, I think T-Rob gets dogged a little bit because of his ROOKIE year, he was exspected to do so well. This guy is crazy and is going to be incredible next year. at the shooting gaurd spot we dont have an allstar but a hard worker in Wesley Mathews and good depth in 3Jmccollum who as we know is ranked 3rd in rookie of the year possiblity I think Cj could easily be rookie of the year if he gets more minutes than what i think he's gonna get. And let's not forget about Meyers, The guy is working so hard and now that his rookie year is behind him the guy could easily become a BEAST this year, I think i read in another fan post 8 out of 12 of our players were rookies last year? 1 more year in the league is going to make every one of those 8 people better.

My whole point is don't be so quick to dog on portland this year I see us making the playoffs this year, and I DON'T Think we'll win a championship, but I've seen crazier things happen.

GO BLAZERS!!!
