Like a child on Christmas Eve counting down the hours until Santa arrives, us die-hard Blazer believers are counting down the days until the regular season is here. Only seven more days until the Blazers play their first game in which it actually counts. Seven more days until LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard make their first meaningful baskets. Seven more days until the Blazers start their NBA Championship run in the 2013-14 season.
Hey, a fan can dream right?
I couldn’t be more excited about the season that is upon us, and to see the improved roster that Neil Olshey has formed. I’m pumped to see what newly aquired center Robin Lopez will bring to the table. Elated to see newcomers, Dorell Wright, Mo Williams, Thomas Robinson, and Earl Watson bring some much needed production off the bench. Thrilled to see what kind of impact 2013 draftees CJ McCollum, and Allen Crabbe will make this season. Eager to see how much Will Barton, Joel Freeland, Victor Claver, and Meyers Leonard have learned and improved in the offseason. Most of all, I am fired up to see Damian Lillard take that next step in his second season and become the All-Star that us Blazer fans know he can become.
No matter what happens this season, good or bad, it’s sure to be an exciting journey. So, stay excited, keep tuned-in, and above all else, keep believing Blazer fans!
