Dave,

Loved the word association project you did. Very creative! Do one for the Blazers roster and let us try too!

--B

Thanks. Collaborative efforts are fun! It's also fun when somebody lays a topic right into your lap in the off-season, so consider your wish granted. Here are my word associations for every member of Portland's roster:

  • LaMarcus Aldridge-- Blue-Chip Stock
  • Nicolas Batum-- Le Question Mark
  • Wesley Matthews-- SuperSub
  • Damian Lillard-- Barely-Bottled Excitement
  • Meyers Leonard-- Versatile
  • J.J. Hickson-- Scorer
  • Luke Babbitt-- Why???
  • Joel Freeland-- Utility
  • Jared Jeffries-- Consummate Veteran
  • Ronnie Price-- Mentor
  • Sasha Pavlovic-- Persistent
  • Nolan Smith-- Tweener
  • Victor Claver-- Longshot
  • Will Barton-- 170 lbs?
  • Elliot Williams-- Injured
  • Adam Morrison-- Sad trumpet sound

No doubt you'll all have your own, probably better, ones. Jump right in! If you want a roster template to start from, it's after the jump.
