I don't know how many NBA fans there are in here, but...

Who has a better future ahead of them, the Portland Trailblazers or the Tampa Bay Rays?

Just thought it would an interesting topic to discuss...

rays? maybe.
they might win something in the next few years.
but then will lose their players to FA.

the blazers will have a much harder time winning coming from the west conference. but would be able to keep their young, good players together more easily.

Rays

They are the best team in baseball and still have alot of potential that has not been reached.

Ray's wont keep all of them. Blazers are locked up for the long haul.

In the short term the Rays get my vote but for the long haul, if Oden develops properly, ill take the Blazers.

I'm actually gonna go with the Trailblazers on this one. If Oden develops correctly, I can guarantee you that they'll win multiple championships. The most valuable thing you can have in the NBA is an incredibly strong center, even more important than a point guard. Oden just screams "star" to me and that will give Portland a young big three with Oden, Aldridge, and Roy. Their bench doesn't hurt either.

Outlaw is going to be a all-star too. He was really underrated this season.

Basketball died to me on the mid 90's. I can't stand it now.

I'm going to go with the Rays.

Yes, the Rays will have to deal with the Sox and Yankees every year in the division, but the Blazers have to deal with about 50 other ridiculously good teams in the West.

Rays. There the best team right now, best prospects, and they didn't even reach there potential.

That team is crazy good.

The Rays, its a lot easier for an ML team to keep getting better then it is for an NBA team to do the same ie. with the 30th pick in the NBA draft youll be lucky to get a future starter with the 30th pick in the MLB draft you could get a future superstar. Aswell the Rays farm system is still by far the best in baseball even with all there young talent in the majors while the Blazers only have there big 5 (bayless,roy,outlaw,alridge,oden) if those guys dont develop they have to start all over while the Rays are deep at pretty much deep at every position. A whole lot has to go wrong for the Rays not to be very good for very long.

Rays...theyre fun to watch. although portland is gonna be good. But the NBA is a joke so they lose points there.
