NICOLAS BATUM RUMORS

Nicolas Batum and Portland face the music in Memphis

I’m pretty sure nobody really thinks Nicolas Batum meant to hurt anybody with his recent motivational message that happened to include an inflammatory remark about Spanish players. It was a joke. People joke all the time. Let’s move on, right? Well, of course. This story is ultimately pointless. Marc Gasol said it best because he’s the best. “I don’t have no take,...

2014-2015 Portland Trail Blazers Regular Season Starters Grades

Today and tomorrow, each Portland Trail Blazer who’s played significant time with the team will get a grade on their season. I know it’s a wee bit cliché to do grades when everybody else does, but this is a Blazer-centric space, and I’ll toss in some player-specific analysis to explain why that player got the grade he did.

Batum Glad Blazers Matched Three Years After Signing Offer Sheet With Wolves

Nicolas Batum admitted he occasionally plays the what-if game in regards to the four-year, $45 million offer sheet he signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves and was subsequently matched by the Portland Trail Blazers.

Nicolas Batum Fights For Portland

My inner history geek took a direct hit. My Greatest Generation grandfather spun in his urn. Nic Batum must fight for his country?
