10 Fun Facts about the Blazers

ESPN the Magazine ran an NBA preview in its most recent issue.  Included in the magazine was a quick look at 10 fun facts about each NBA team.  Here is half the list on the Blazers:
1. The reason LaMarcus Aldridge went to Texas at all, rather than coming right out for the NBA Draft, was because of advice given to him by Shaquille O'Neal.

2. Here's one clip that explains excitement about the Blazers.

3. Joel Przybilla nickname time: "The Vanilla Gorilla" / "Joel Dolla-Dolla-Billa" / "Joel Przybilla The Thrilla" / "Joel Daddy" / "White Kong" / "Ghostface Przybilla." We'll go with this too: "Oden's backup."

4. People in Portland are so excited about this team, they are centering their weddings around it.

5. Blog squad: Channing Frye and Greg Oden.
Make sure to check out the rest of the list at the ESPN the Magazine site.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
