Yes, I have the Portland Trail Blazers on this list.
I believe they have a better team than the Knicks, Mavericks, Celtics, Clippers and the Spurs.
You can call me stupid, but look at these things first:
Have you seen the Trail Blazers' roster?
The Trail Blazers are very talented and no doubt the deepest in the league. When you have guys like Jamal Crawford and Nicolas Batum coming off the bench, that shows depth. They have a true point guard in Raymond Felton to lead the offense, Wesley Matthews and Gerald Wallace have the wings locked down, and they also have Kurt Thomas and Greg Oden coming off the bench at the center position.
Aldridge is becoming one of the premier power forwards in the league. He is averaging 23 points and eight rebounds a game. He is having a career year and should be leading them to the Finals.
The Trail Blazers almost knocked the Mavericks out of the playoffs last year ,taking them to six games so they have a little bit of experience. They have a good offense, but they need to get tougher on the defensive side of the ball. Do not be surprised if the Trail Blazers make a deep run in the playoffs. This team is talented and very deep.
