An up and coming team

So much hinges on Oden, who is expected to be ready after missing last season following microfracture surgery. Since his name has been in the news for so many years, itís easy to forget that Oden is just 20-years-old.

Joining Oden up front will be LaMarcus Aldridge, among the most improved players last year in his second season. Aldridge averaged 17.8 points and 7.6 rebounds. He just turned 23 and has the look of a future all star.

Also in the frontcourt mix are Channing Frye and Joel Przybilla. Frye has great talent, but hasnít always played up to his ability. Przybilla adds toughness and shot blocking ability. He was second on the team with 1.21 blocks per game. (Aldridge led Portland with 1.24 blocks per contest).

And of course there is 6-9 Travis Outlaw, who averaged a career-high 13.3 points and gives the Blazers a major perimeter threat off the bench. Outlaw will turn 24 later this month.
