The best rookie Frenchman in Portland Trailblazer history has a blog (bloc-note? ) for French basketball website, Basket Session.com.
In a recent post Batum writes about All-Star weekend. He shares his experience doing color commentary for the Rookie Sophomore game on Canal+, partying with Steve Nash, setting world records, and more. But despite my best efforts learning French, I’m glad that Oregonlive.com’s Tim Brown has translated the post for us at the Blazer Blog.

Bonjour, Monsieur Batum! My wife and I shook your hand at the Blazer Fanfest scrimmage, and you seemed a little surprised that I knew you were French. Mais oui! We Blazer fans love our team and you have seen that we are the best fans in the NBA. As we say in the States, you “got game” and we hope to see you wear the Noir et Rouge for many years to come. Best wishes to you, young sir.
