My brother Steve, a Portland native and lifelong Blazer fan, moved to Elko, Nevada a few years ago. But he’s still a Blazer fan. He blogged yesterday about Tuesday night’s preseason game against Sacramento, which he was fortunate to track down on Northern Nevada cable:
But the team we have now is HOT! Greg Oden is playing for the first time after micro-fracture surgery that kept him out last year and just looks like a monster, like a young Shaq. The rest of the team has matured over the last couple years, and Spanish rookie Rudy Fernandez is a baller. I watched the first preseason game last night and he had 5-6 completely SICK passes and alley-oops/dunks. That guy is going to be a star, mark my words.
