I really want those shoes!

Join me in welcoming Dwight Howard to Team Rose.

Winter is coming and Chicago has got crazy-eye without a mayor, 8-3 bears and BOOZER! right around the corner. In these times, I hope your city is faring as well.

If you haven't recently turned the dial , tune into the newly tricked out Molasses Radio Network.

Of Blazers, broken bodies and boo-hoos

I cannot recount the number of post game conversations these past four season, huddled in the winter nights of dear Portlandia, that Simistar and myself have visioned the days of a healthy Oden and Roy dominating the League and playing for history. Oden is basically done before he started. Roy seems likely to have chronic knee issues.

What is awesome is that Portland still has an great squad. Aldridge is playing outstanding basketball. He got much stronger during the off-season, and he is playing with very high energy. Nic Batum seems to have taken that next step. And then the veterans Andre Miller and Marcus Camby have been exceptional. Free agent Wes Matthews is playing out of his mind. When Przybilla returns, the Blazers will boast one of the longest and skilled frontlines in the League. Roy isn't done, even if he is different.

The Championship dreams are fading like away like glowing faery dust caught in the tug of a gentle summer's breeze in that darkest hour before dawn. But that doesn't mean that Portland isn't gonna clown some suckers during the regular season.

The Onion Strikes Again

You'll laugh, you'll cry...

Although Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan has repeatedly warned his team about using the basketball around "valuable" and "really fragile" center Greg Oden, several players accidentally knocked the seven-footer to the floor with a carelessly thrown ball Thursday and shattered him into a thousand pieces.

KG, the truth, and reality

First post in a while.

The credulity that the media (ESPN, Clown Van Gundy especially) lent to Villanueva's tweet is silly. KG' s explanation seems right on to me: Charlie Villanueva is a cancer to his team and the league. Any moonball owners care to disagree.

Chris Bosh is the weak musketeer.

Blazers, Bulls and OKC all look awesome, records aside.

What Rondo is doing makes doves cry.

Is anyone else scared to post getty owned photos?

Funny with all the shine the young guys have been getting, Chris Paul seems to have slipped back into MVP mode.

Blake Griffin's game gives me pause. But the Clips seem sick as usual.

Is Golden State for real?

As usual, Shoals says it better than most.
