    Oregon Live: NBA: LaMarcus Aldridge, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love could boost franchises by making All-Star Game
    "I think people of Portland would love to see L.A. make the All-Star Game," Blazers president Larry Miller said. "He's playing great. I think he deserves to make it."

    Columbian: 'Wild Guy' Marks known for traveling
    “It’s not easy moving around, and there are a lot of things that happen that a normal person wouldn’t understand,” said Marks, affectionately known as “Kiwi” among his teammates. “You have to uproot every two years or so, but this is a dream come true. The chance to do what you love for a living is so rare.”

    Portland Tribune: Brian Grant takes bow at his alma mater
    “There are guys who have put up better statistics than I did as far as scoring and rebounding,” says Grant, who makes his home in West Linn. “I’m thankful that they thought of me. It’s a great honor.”

    Herald Sun: Aussie Mills an NBA trail blazer
    "You only get one chance in the NBA. I always believed in my own ability, I just have to keep working hard."

    SLAM: Report: Ricky Rubio Wants to Play on the East Coast
    “He’ll continue to say all the diplomatic things, and Minnesota needs to keep his value up for trade purposes, but the family’s preference is to be on the East Coast, specifically New York, Miami or Boston. He wouldn’t be troubled if he has to stay another year.” … “I’m not focused on the N.B.A. right now,” Rubio said. “Right now, I don’t want to talk and I don’t want to think.”

    DIME: Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 1.24 (Weekend Recap)
    "Stephen Curry roared back into fantasy stardom over the weekend by averaging 33 points, 4.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 2.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and three three-pointers in two games. He shot 55 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line during this stretch. Curry appears to be back on track and should pay handsome rewards to owners who were able to buy low on him."

    NBA: West continues to dominate, Spurs remain on top
    "The Blazers still haven't broken stride, despite another injury. Marcus Camby is out three weeks after arthroscopic knee surgery and 6-foot-8 Dante Cunningham is now the back-up center. With Andre Miller sick, they had Rudy Fernandez and Wesley Matthews playing point guard for most of Saturday's win over Indiana. "

    Hang Time Blog: Center Of Attention, Still
    "He is not exactly a dependable hope for the future, to put it mildly, but welcome to the only existing long-term option at center, or at least the only one in the Blazers’ control. It doesn’t mean they’ll take it. But the Camby injury, at his age, with his contract status, coupled with the Przybilla injury, with his contract status, means the stakes just got that much higher on the looming Oden decision."

    ESPN: Power Rankings
    "No one is coping with life minus Roy, Oden and Camby better than Aldridge, who has quietly joined Blake G., D-Wade, Amare and Dwight Howard as one of the league's top-five bucket-getters from five feet and in."

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "Derrick Rose can't play any better than his MVP-caliber first half, but I expect more from the Chicago Bulls once they get Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah together for a sustained stretch. They've been in the same starting lineup only nine times this season, and the Bulls went 7-2. Rose has carried the Bulls to the third-best record in the East so far; imagine what he can do with more help."
