whos the new starting center?
Still cant believe Olshey pulled that offForward Jared Jeffries, center Dan Gadzuric, the draft rights to Georgios Printezis and Kostas Papanikolaou, a 2016 second round draft pick and cash considerations from the New York Knicks in exchange for Raymond Felton and Kurt Thomas
If the Blazers weasel their way into getting the #1 pick in this draft, I'm done with this team seriously. Why oh why would they be even remotely interested in attempting to acquire the number 1 pick? Why oh why would they want to draft a Center COMING OFF FREAKING KNEE SURGERY??!!
LaRue Martin (born March 30, 1950 in Chicago, Illinois) is a retired American professional basketball player. Martin was taken first overall by the National Basketball Association's (NBA) Portland Trail Blazers in 1972, drafted ahead of future Hall of Famers Bob McAdoo and Julius Erving. Martin has been cited as the worst first overall draft pick in NBA history.[1
On June 28, 2007, Oden was selected first overall in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers, ahead of rookie of the year, 3 time NBA scoring champ and Olympic gold medalist Kevin Durant. He underwent microfracture surgery of the knee in September 2007, and missed the entire 2007–08 NBA season as a result. He recovered and made his NBA debut on opening night 2008. On March 15, 2012, he was waived from the Trail Blazers after a long history of knee injuries.
Projected as a solid first rounder in the 1984 NBA Draft, Bowie was chosen by the Portland Trail Blazers as the second selection, ahead of future Hall of Famer Michael Jordan, due to Portland already having drafted Clyde Drexler just a year before. he broke his left leg in 1985, and then broke his right leg in 1986--injuries unheard of in the NBA. Due to the broken right leg, he missed all but five games in the 1986-87 season. During the 1987-88 preseason, he fractured his right tibia while walking around in a pregame shootaround and was lost for the season. All told, due to his leg troubles he only played 63 games (out of a possible 32 during his last three seasons in Portland.
Darius Miles' playing career nearly came to an end when he was released by the Portland Trail Blazers in April 2008 after two years away from the court following microfracture surgery on his right knee.
Brandon Roy, On April 11, 2010, Roy injured his right knee. Magnetic resonance imaging that night confirmed a right knee bone contusion (bone bruise) and on April 12, further examination of the MRI showed a slight meniscus tear. Roy underwent surgery on April 16 and was expected to miss at least the first round of the 2010 NBA Playoffs, but returned for Game 4 after eight days of recovery time to lead the Blazers to a win.[4 On January 17, 2011, Roy underwent arthroscopic surgery on both of his knees. On December 10, 2011, Roy announced his retirement from basketball due to a degenerative knee condition, after only 6 years in the league.
seriously!!!!!!! must be something in the waterBill Walton. On leaving college, Walton was drafted by the San Diego Conquistadors of the American Basketball Association and also taken as the number one overall by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 1974 NBA Draft and was hailed as the savior of the Portland franchise. He signed with the Trail Blazers but his first two seasons were marred by injury (at different times he broke his nose, foot, wrist and leg) and the Blazers missed the playoffs both years.The following year, the Blazers won 50 of their first 60 games before Walton suffered a broken foot in what turned out to be the first in a string of foot and ankle injuries that cut short his career.
You're the first person I've heard say this, and I agree 100%Meh, Rose Garden was a great name but I can understand. Like they were saying on the radio though what really needs to happen is the entire Rose Quarter to be revamped. It is by far one of the lamest areas around a sporting arena ever. They need to tear down that dump the Memorial Collesium(sp?) and put in some bars and restaurants and try to bring some life in there.
