LaMarcus Aldridge was a first-time All-Star player last season and will look to remain consistent and become the team's undisputed leader. Last season he averaged 21.7 points per game and eight rebounds. If he can stay healthy this season he should be an All-Star again and according to NBA 2K13 he does make the All-Star team.

According to NBA 2K13, the Blazers will fail to make the playoffs, but rookie guard Damian Lillard will have a great rookie campaign and will come in behind only Anthony Davis in the rookie of the year voting. The problem for the Blazers will be scoring as they end the season ranked 24th in points per game with 98.3. Their defense is also bad and allows 103.1 points per game.
