Get ready for the Portland Trail Blazers 2012-2013 season!
The Portland Trail Blazers started out fast out of the gate last season, and expectations were soaring. Led by emerging superstar LaMarcus Aldridge, who would secure his first All-Star appearance later in the year, the Blazers seemed poised for a postseason appearance, but faltered as the season wore on and found themselves on the outside looking in as the postseason approached for the first time in three years. The Blazers and Coach Terry Stotts are determined to get back to the upper echelon of the Western Conference this season, and they'll need all the Blazers fans in the stands at the Rose Garden urging them on, so make sure you get your Blazers tickets and cheer Portland on! The addition of JJ Hickson last year, the former Cavalier, should help the Blazers inside game and take some pressure off Aldridge in the interior. The Blazers also re-signed small forward Nicolas Batum in the offseason, and he should provide some offensive firepower to complement the rest of the Trail Blazers frontcourt. Wesley Matthews provides some outside sharpshooting at shooting guard and should also help take on some of the ballhandling duties in lieu of the departure of former PG Raymond Felton. This Blazers team has plenty of young talent to play alongside Aldridge, so make sure you get out to a game this season with some Trail Blazers tickets from Ticket Liquidator!
While the lineup has certainly shuffled over the last two seasons, the Trail Blazers were able to add some young talent this season through the draft. With the sixth overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Trail Blazers selected Damian Lillard out of Weber State, an explosive 6-3 PG who should immediately step into a starting role in Portland. Lillard will have Ronnie Price and Nolan Smith backing him up, but he is expected to quarterback this team immediately, and if his college career at Weber State is any indication, the Blazers should be in good hands. The Blazers also selected University of Illinois center Meyers Leonard with the 11th pick, a seven-footer who will back up JJ Hickson at center. Leonard will have a chance to contribute to this young Blazers team, and should provide the Blazers with some much-needed interior defense. Later in the draft, the Blazers also selected small forward Victor Claver with the 22nd pick. These young players should have an immediate impact on this team, most notably Damian Lillard. In a league full of superstar point guards, every team needs a sure-handed point guard to compete, and the Blazers think they have their point guard for the long haul. Make sure you get your Portland Trail Blazers tickets and head out to the Rose Garden to check out all these young stars and see the Blazers do some damage in the Western Conference!
The Western Conference is packed with top teams, so Portland will have a tough task in front of them if they want to get back to the playoffs in 2012-2013. This team is up for the challenge, however, and Lamarcus Aldridge is on the verge of superstardom in the NBA. If he can stay healthy, this team can compete with anyone in the West. One of the teams that Portland must be able to battle is the Oklahoma City Thunder, last season's runner-ups in the NBA finals to the eventual champion Miami Heat. With Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook forming one of the top backcourt duos in the NBA, the Blazers will have their hands full. The Blazers strength is in their frontcourt, however, and they may be able to do some damage in the paint. The road to Western supremacy still goes through the Thunder, even though the Los Angeles Lakers are perhaps the sexiest team on paper now, with the additions of Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. Another division rival the Blazers will need to keep in check is the Sacramento Kings, another young and hungry team who is looking to make a move in the Pacific Division as well. If the Blazers can manage to execute and play hard for Coach Stotts, they could turn a lot of heads in the NBA. Remember the name Damian Lillard, he could be one of the next major point guards to make their mark on the NBA.
