The Portland Trail Blazers hosted a tour of the team's remodeled practice facility in Tualatin on Wednesday.

Here's a round-up of coverage.

Bruce Ely of The Oregonian has an awesome interactive tour.

A $3.8 million renovation of the building included upgrading existing structure while adding 4,343 sq. feet that includes a theater and additional training areas. The existing Blazer practice facility was constructed in 1998.

Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com has a thorough step-by-step explanation of the upgrades, which include a new video room, a barbershop dubbed the "Chop Shot," a redesigned weight room, and more.

"Look, it's become an arm's race around the league," said Trail Blazers general manager Neil Olshey. "This used to be a unique building. It was one of the first in the league that had its own practice facility and now it's common place. Now you have guys coming from college situations where they have $25, $30 million practice facilities.Hey, right down the road there's one for $65 million. When they set that as the bar for how they're treated and what they have access to in college, then you've got to have the same resources in the NBA."
