Travis Outlaw is expected to arrive by Wednesday. New Orleans' Desmond Mason, who lives in Portland during the off-season, was playing as well, as were a couple of other players. That made it possible to have the five-on-five runs, with a sub or two. Darius Miles was there as well, but is still rehabbing, and didn't take part in the full-court runs.
Finally. :biggrin:

Also very impressive during the full-court games was Martell Webster, who has lost 15 pounds.
Good for him, if it's true. Although I've heard continual wind that Kemp is back down to 230, so who knows...

Re: "They're Back" (Barrett)

Nice! It's also good to hear that Aldrige think Martell has improved. In the interview he sounded impressed. This will be the Martell make or break season IMO.

I believe Green was playing today there was some quotes about him.

Green's also sitting next to Roy in one of the pictures from the Blazers' site.

As for Webster, while MB's enthusiasm should always be taken with a grain of salt, (perhaps particularly in this case), if Webster is ready to step in and play well, he'll get plenty of time backing up Roy -- even if he still can't hang with NBA SGs defensively, that won't matter as much as it did last year with better defenders on the floor with him and there's the potential that he could make opposing 2s work (or at least stay honest) at the other end. Not that there won't occasionally be times to play Jack and Blake together in the backcourt, but if Webster loses some of that deer-in-the-headlights aspects to his game, better to have him getting most of those minutes rather than Jack.

Re: "They're Back" (Barrett)

Also, maybe it's a small point, but I'm a little bummed that, given the amazing showing, the guys who stand out as not there are mostly veteran guys in LaFrentz, Przybilla, and Outlaw. I suppose it doesn't matter so very much because of the four missing, Outlaw's the only one likely to be a core part of the rotation out of the blocks. Still, for all he's talked about wanting to help provide leadership, I hope LaFrentz in particular shows up soon.

MB mentioned in his article that Outlaw would come in on Wednesday.

Yeah, I'd caught that. That's part of why I didn't single him out the way I did, say, LaFrentz -- it's clear he (Outlaw) is going to be here soon. And Outlaw's never really talked about being a leader while LaFrentz and Przybilla both have and if he hasn't Rodriguez should be, being not just a point guard but a point guard who's all about creating for others.

That said, I don't want to come off as a wet blanket. It's amazing to me that so many guys, including what's likely to be the entire starting line-up, showed up this early. And it's great fun just watching that video. I watched it straight through three times and will probably watch it at least three more times before tomorrow. While the season can't come fast enough, at least we're now finally going to be getting things like this occasionally the rest of the way. :biggrin:
