The Blazers end 2013 near the very top of the NBA standings.

The narrative surrounding the Portland Trail Blazers has switched from “Are they for real?” to “How good are they really?” in the blink of an eye.


It's clear that this Blazers team—which is sporting the best offense in the league by a wide margin—is very, very good and has the chance to make some serious noise this season, even if it's also got a pretty terrible defense (24th in the league) to go along with that offense. We won't know exactly how good it is for a few more months, but this is a dangerous team.


With all that being said, let's take a look at how each key Blazer has played as we move into a new year of basketball. Grades are assessed based on both how players have lived up to preseason expectations and their actual on-court production. Let's get to it.
