7:30pm at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the Portland Trailblazers begin the 2008-2009 season against last year’s Western Conference Champions, the Los Angeles Lakers.
With the expectations heaped onto this young Trailblazer team, it’s no surprise to see fans jumping back (or for the first time) onto the bandwagon. To keep up with the team, these blogs are required reading:
Both rich with original content, these blogs also link to interviews, videos, articles, and blogs around the world if the subject matter is directly or tangentially about the Blazers.
As a Portland blogger and season ticket holder, I too will occasionally blog about the Blazers this season . . . and post season?
Last year I predicted, accurately, that the Blazers would go 41-41 on the season (though that was 11 games into the season with the Blazers a perfect 4-0 at home and a perfectly awful 0-7 on the road).
This year I will make my prediction before the team starts playing: 49-33.
