Basketball is back in Rip City!

After a stunning start to the season, the Portland Trail Blazers are finally back on top of the standings after a decade-long absence from contention. 

Coach Terry Stotts has the young Blazers playing inspired basketball. Their defense is vastly improved, their bench is a strength rather than a colossal weakness and the starters remain one of the top groups in the league. 

There are many reasons why this team is overachieving and make no mistake about it, they are overachieving. If you bump into someone that says they thought this type of start was possible, you have an obligation to call shenanigans. 

From top to bottom, this team is leaps and bounds better than last year's squad. And to make even the biggest pessimist look on the bright side, this team still has plenty of room to improve.
