Rumor: Lillard the NBA Live 15 cover athlete?

5

It seems pretty likely considering that their first screenshot was of him shooting over Irving (the previous cover athlete) and that they even used him for the graphics close up. Plus he was the only NBA player to cameo in the Madden 15 commercial (also EA). Now we have a french article saying (according to google translate) that he is confirmed as the cover athlete. It is possible though that this article is just making the same assumption to get page hits. What do you guys think?

Reddit user braddaugherty8 came up with some pretty legit custom covers for NBA 2k15, and they were compiled at nba2k4life.com. There is a custom cover for the Blazers featuring our all-stars most of the way down the page. How do you feel about this cover, and what would you change, if you could?

Lol!

Judge Orders Batum to Make Payments to Ex

15

A Clackamas County judge found Nic Batum in breach of contract for not making scheduled payments to his ex-wife. Batum was over $200,000 in arrears, and he will be fined $500/day until he has caught up with the payments. He was also found in contempt of court for not appearing in court or having an attorney appear on his behalf. Oops.

Can the Portland Trail Blazers Build a Title Team Around LaMarcus Aldridge?

3

"Unlike those bygone tragi-heroes, however, Aldridge's has been a career built, in both style and statistical substance, on steadfast sturdiness and steady improvement. And judging by his latest breakout year, there shouldn't be many more small steps left before the floor that hangs the banners."

ESPN forecasts Blazers will finish 4th in West, win 51 games next season

What do you guys think? I think this is about right, last year we got lucky injury-wise so I wouldn't be surprised if we win less than 50 games this season.
