“Rip City (Trail Blazers Anthem 2012)” A breaks down 2012 Blazers in this ill anthem. You may of heard it at the Rose Garden during the Blazers Vs Lakers game last night (1/5/12) thanks to DJ O.G. ONE. As a true Portland Trail Blazers fan this ignites some major pride. And the Blazers are #1 in the West right now! Rip City!

The Basketball Jones talk Blazers

Lots of Blazers talk in this episode: Ep. 734: The Overdose, Jan. 6 On tap: the hot-starting Blazers and Nuggets, the under-performing Knicks and Mavs, the exciting new twist in the Rookie-Sophomore game, the DeMarcus Cousins-Paul Westphal mess in Sacramento, whether James Harden should start in OKC, Raymond Felton’s smack talk, and a hilarious round of NBA player affirmations.

My big project this year. Part one of the year long project of turning every single Blazer game into a mini-movie. The idea is to bring highlights and connect them into this format so the entire year is documented in all its glory and events. This year I will be taking highlights/ups and downs of every single game and compiling all into short parts and uploading them as the year progresses for fan enjoyment. At the end of the year I will be connecting every single part for one long movie which will showcase every single game in this type of format. The project will take a lot of effort but will be a nice showcase for the 2011-12 Blazers season to look back on. Enjoy/Share/Comment as every Blazer should like this series.

Charles Barkley: "That Portland Trail Blazer team is the best team I've seen in the West this year." Kevin Harlan: "What do you like about them?" Charles Barkley: "They're tall, they're athletic, they're deep. They've got a terrific coach in Nate McMillan. They are the best team in the West I've seen so far." Conversation from a TNT Thursday night broadcast. Hat tip for the transcript to KP2. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter

ESPNLA.com Writer Calls Out CSNNW.com Writer For Bias

79
Dave McMenamin of ESPNLA.com listened to CSNNW.com writer Chris Haynes give a radio hit (audio here) on the Dave Smith Show on 750 AM The Game on Thursday afternoon and took exception to what he heard. "Just heard a Portland scribe end his radio hit talking about tonight's game by saying 'Let's go Blazers!' Real objective folks up here," McMenamin wrote on Twitter. Jason Quick of The Oregonian took exception to that comment. "You can't generalize us all as one ...or at least say who it was," Quick wrote. McMenamin then clarified that the "folks" he was referring to were Haynes and Smith. Update: Haynes explained his comment to me before the game: "Dave [Smith] and I are both from California. I always just talk like that because I know he's a Lakers fan. That's all there is to it." Update: Fences have been mended. McMenamin writes just before tip: "Spoke to Chris Haynes pregame. Good dude." -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter

Abbott: "Sell" On Blazers' Hot Start

40
Henry Abbott of TrueHoop.com chose to "sell" when asked to "buy or sell" the Portland Trail Blazers being able to maintain their conference-leading hot start. ------------------------------- Sell. The team is in the pack among the West's better teams, but not ahead of it. All those long, active, handsy guys -- Gerald Wallace, Marcus Camby, LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Batum, Wesley Matthews -- are doing a nice job hassling anyone who tries to drive into the paint, which led to quality wins over the Thunder and Nuggets. But that West-leading record includes two cupcake wins, and they're also tied for first in rest days to date. ------------------------------- The other four panelists asked to gauge Portland's start cast "buy" votes. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter

Good morning, sweet world!

The Basketball Jones is back, and in their first episode Skeets refers to the Blazers as "a great team". Almost wept when that theme music started up. For those new to the show, it is generally NSFW, thanks in large part to Skeets dropping the occasional F Bomb. Enjoy.
