Portland's Blazing a New Trail: 10 Midseason Questions About the Blazers

The 2010-11 NBA season was supposed to be the year the Portland Trail Blazers jumped back into the Association's elite. Greg Oden was supposed to get healthy, Brandon Roy was supposed to put last year's playoff series behind him, and the veterans brought into the fold (Marcus Camby and Andre Miller) were supposed to add stability and consistency to an otherwise young team.

The Blazers should have been a top five team in the league.

Instead, Oden has to sit out another season, Roy's knees are basically shot, Camby and Miller are trade pieces, and the Blazers are right back where they were two years ago: young, unproven, banged-up, and a smidge above average.

The rest of this season, as well as the immediate off-season before the supposed lockout, will be a time of renewed introspection for Portland's management. Ten questions, in particular, must and probably will be answered before the Blazers take the floor for the 2011-12 season.
