The second half of the NBA season is in full swing and playoff bound teams are focused on improving their records to thus improve their seating. Here is why the Phoenix Suns could knock off some unsuspecting teams, particularly the Portland Trail Blazers.
Damian Lillard has a lot going on All-Star weekend, but he had enough time for a Q&A session with his fans. One issue, something that is in the back of every Portland fan's head, is the whether or not he will stay here for his career. Here's why he should
Somehow in five events for this upcoming All-Star weekend, Damian Lillard will have a full plate. But which event does he have the best chance of winning? Will he run out of gas by Sunday. For prediction purposes, I'll say he wins at least one solo event.
The Portland Trail Blazers may be too preoccupied to think about picking up another piece, understandably so given their great record. But if Portland wants to make a deep run, they need to start thinking about acquiring a defensive player.
A 28-player pool has just been announced for USA Basketball. If there's a general consensus surrounding one player, it's Paul George. But besides the budding star from Indiana, where do Damian Lillard, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Blake Griffin come into play?

Not yet at the midway mark of the season, MVP candidates all already being debated. LaMarcus Aldridge is showing why this season, being the best forward on the best team should afford him the MVP trophy.
Summer 2014 is approaching, which means moving pieces. LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Dwyane Wade will all be on the market as highly coveted players. But that's not who the Blazers should have their eye on. It's Marvin Williams.
Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge have been identified as two of the 120 players on the All-Star ballot for the 2014 All-Star Game. Seeing as they are both elite players, on an elite team, it seems ludicrous to keep them off the West All-Star roster.
The Trail Blazers have seen an incline in their play, and ultimately, their number of wins. This is due in large part to LaMarcus Aldridge's development as a leader and premier player, and also the supporting cast, and improved bench.
Mike Woodson and Carmelo Anthony are drawing much attention as the catalyst's for the Knicks' demise. On the surface, this may appear valid but there is more to the puzzle, such as injuries and opposing viewpoints and personalities on the roster.
