Bill Simmons ‏@BillSimmons 1h "Last fake trade: hey Rip City, would you flip LaMarcus Aldridge to Cleveland for Tristan Thompson + 1st overall pick? Hmmmmmm."

Dame doing his own PR

"Earlier today [draft selection day] I got to go down to Times Square, meet some fans, [sign] some autographs and TAKE SOME PICTURES and just enjoy myself down there." LOL

Hoopsworld's Kyler: Pekovic or McGee

What you want to do and what you can do are often two entirely different an unrelated things. The Blazers want to add some veteran guys that can defend… to me that is Nikola Peckovic or Javale McGee in terms of possibly obtainable.

Why not all the time, except B to Backs?

Matthews killed last game with his family watching. L.A. plays well in Dallas. Batum has a thing with Minne. Why not play well all the time?

A drunk I met the tonight.

Scott Danger: Blazer anatomy lesson

LMA is HUGE. He’s taller than every player on the Wolves and his arms/chest are gigantic. I never realized that LMA was that big before. Unbelievable. Pek still has a broader chest, but not by a lot. Damian (L)illard is compact but built like a brick house. Outside of LMA, he was the most muscular player on the floor last night. I was worried his size would hold him back in this league, but not anymore. Also: [...] Ricky (and Lillard) both play the point guard position with that thousand-yard stare that makes it seem like they aren’t looking at/focused on anything when they’re actually processing a million little things at once.

Scott Danger (teewolves.com) had some cool observations from sitting courtside at the Blazers-Wolves game. He shared them in a comment thread at The Basketball Jones.

Proof Paul Allen doesn't have a time machine... "Under the Oxford Biomaterials wing, Vollrath's team has another project that makes meniscal implants by which they dissolve the silk in lithium bromide ('a really nasty chemical, the only thing that will touch it') and then firm it up. The result is incredibly strong and integrates much better potentially with the human body than any plastic. These meniscal products are currently in animal trials, Vollrath says, and, given favourable outcomes, could be in humans in a year or two. In the same way, they are working on hernia meshes and bone-like structures and investigating ways in which silks can be used as a targeted carrier for drugs in the body, 'tuned to slow release over weeks or months or years'."

I don't know if anyone here uses instagram but the instagram page: OfficialDamianLillardFanPage seems like a cool page for us fans to follow and support Damian and his ROY run! :)

Thorpe: Damian Lillard Makes It Look Easy As Lillard squared up at the top of the key against Carter, who was playing high school basketball when Lillard was still in diapers, it looked like Lillard was going to try to take the slower Carter to the rim. But instead Lillard recognized that the Batum-Collison matchup might be the better option. So he patiently allowed Batum to body up Collison. Then in an instant, Batum faked moving up the floor and went backdoor, where Lillard easily hit him in stride. The play resulted in a nice dunk by Batum. Great players make great plays seem routine, and that is what Lillard is doing in this league already.
