Two out of three ain't bad

At least the Blazers got it right last year.

And hey, how 'bout that LaMarcus Aldridge? Are we really gonna get those pts and rebounds at PF, without the reserved table at Exotica?? w00t!

I like Adam Morrison and hope he might end up in Portland one day. Torn ACL aside, I think he has the chance to become a franchise player for someone.

Wow, the Blazers sure looked good tonight, thrashing Dallas. Roy with 32!!!

A while back I complained that it's the same team as last year, but without Zach Randolph. That's obviously not true. Roy and Aldridge are much older and wiser, and they're tearing the place up.

Outlaw's not coming through, though. Too skinny, too inconsistent -- based on what I've seen so far this season, I think I was right that they shouldn't have spent real money on him. The homer announcers can scream for him all they want, but that won't make him a serious NBA player.

Outlaw certainly looked better last night than the rest of this year. He had a double double and went 5-8 from the field. He's gotta cut the turnovers down though.

Outlaw's contract is $12 million over 3 years which is a lot of money to you and me, but it's not that much for a free agent in the NBA. He has tremendous elevation, and even though he's skinny, he has the physical tools to play a role in the league. Most of whatever is holding him back is between the ears, and if he can get in a groove I think we'll see some consistent play out of him. He's been a pro for 4 years but just turned 23 since he came straight out of high school, so maturity wise he should be arriving just about now.
