    Here's an 11 minute video that not only shows off Nolan's handles, shooting ability and athleticism but shows off his personality as well. In a way he kinda reminds me of Channing Frye and I think Rip city is really going to embrace him.

    I got chills watching this! Throwing up the three monocle (I'm sure he'll catch on to the goggles just fine) and the way he juked that dude to the floor. Amazing. I'm amped to see how he'll develop this season under the NateMac's tutelage. Twinkle toes has a bright future and his personality is perfectly Portland. Rip City baby!

    AMAZING video. Well done showing off both Nolan's ball skills and personality. Can't wait to see this dude in the Black n Red!!!

    DHawes-- have any good montage videos of some of our other boys? I know this one was from Duke so that made it easy, but it'd be great if you (or anyone) that might've tracked down some video of Felton on his prior teams, Batum in Europe this summer, even L-train, GDub, Wes or Pattycakes, could post em up here... I'm just REALLY itching to see our Blazers play/see how they've been doin it over the long offseason! RRRRRRRRRRIP CITYYYYYY!!!

    I'm working on putting together a montage of Felton/Wallace youtube videos from their days in Charlotte that should be on the boards Monday. I hope their chemistry from Charlotte transfers over to the Rose City!

    I think we all should take a page from Dick Vitale's book and start calling him "Strollin' Nolan"

    Is Nolan Smith the first Duke player that Portland has drafted?

    We took Alaa Abdelnaby in the 1990 Draft. Elliot Williams, while was at Memphis the time of his arrival in Portland, played one season at Duke.

    Very excited to see this young man hoop it up!

    Both Smith and Williams will need to give the team something this year.

    I am also very excited about williams and cant wait to see what he has to bring to the team! He could turn out to be the best player from last years draft class which was particularly weak (Luke Babbit & Armon Johnson)

    I agree. If he was 100% healthy he would of gone higher in the draft, Portland took a chance on him knowing he would be out a while. For sure one of these guys will need to step it up, my money is on either Williams or Smith.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
