The Blazers plan to run the ball more with Raymond Felton at point guard this season, and at times are running their practices with a 12-15 second shot clock.
Nate McMillan has wanted to install an uptempo offense, but Andre Miller and Brandon Roy made that impossible. Enter Felton, who may be pudgy but loves to run, and start him next to the young, athletic core of Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum, Gerald Wallace, and LaMarcus Aldridge and it all makes sense. We thought the Blazers would run based on their personnel, but now McMillan is backing it with his words.

That's not a bad idea. Last season they played at the slowest pace in the NBA, I believe.

How can Greg Oden keep up the pace with them? Is he like 50 years old or something? Oh wait....he just looks old. My bad

MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

reminds me of the 06/07 suns

C Aldrdige = Amare
PF Gerald Wallace = Marion
SF Batum = James Jones
SG Matthews = Raja Bell
PG Felton = Nash

Bench C Kurt Thomas = Kurt Thomas haha

well not saying Felton is the equivalent of Nash but he would play that role of pushing the ball up the court and get an easy basket every time theres a chance. They got some serious athletes in the front court.

In other words - "Blazers set to not win in the post season".
