Allen Crabbe says Sunday’s practice was not unusual when it comes to the group being lost in laughter. There have been film sessions and other practices where mishaps stop the action so everybody can laugh. “Man, I laugh every day with this team,’’ Ed Davis said. “Every day. Over something … something in practice, something on the plane, it doesn’t matter. There’s always something.’’ The great thing about it, players say, is the coaches are often a part of it. “Our coaches feel like they are part of the team,’’ Plumlee said. “Laughing is good for the soul.’’
Harkless got paid. CJ got paid. ML got paid. Crabbe gets paid. Turner gets brought in. Payroll through the roof. Flexibility shot to hell. Wing options for days. Does Plumlee get paid? Who goes? When? Steve Kyler: Spoke to the agents of a couple of those guys and while they were happy their guys got paid almost all of those deals are tradable money and they don’t believe their guys are there long-term. The Blazers had cash to spend and spent it and now they have bigger dollar trade chips if they don’t ultimately like the fit or the duplication.
After 2 1/2 weeks, four exhibition games and more than 10 practices, Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts remains as evasive and ambiguous about his starting lineup — specifically his starting small forward spot — as ever. “I will have a decision by Oct. 25,” he said Saturday, when asked if he was inching closer to deciding whether Moe Harkless, Evan Turner or Allen Crabbe would start. Stotts wouldn’t even reveal whether one of the three players had distanced himself in the fight for the only open spot in the starting lineup.
Allen Crabbe is in China. That’s a long way from his home in California and from the Portland Trail Blazers. He’s over there to do some business, including visiting LeSports Hong Kong—a company that provides users with video services including webcasting, video-on-demand and additional information on football, basketball, tennis, golf and other sports—and the NBA China offices. He’s also there to experience something different, made possible by the roundball. “If it wasn’t for the season that I had, then opportunities like this wouldn’t be possible,” Crabbe says through a crackly phone call from near Hong Kong. “I’m just blessed to be in the position for the types of doors that basketball has opened for me to go to places that I never thought I would be. It’s been an exciting experience.”

Insiders: How do you decide who pays for dinner on the team? With you, Damian, Allen Crabbe, Evan Turner, Meyers Leonard, Moe Harkless and others all getting pay days, is it, “I pay this time, you pay the next?” Or is there a generous guy out of the group who just continues to take care of you guys? McCollum: “I’m on my rookie minimum still! That contract of mine doesn’t go into effect until next season, so those guys will definitely be picking up the tab – no doubt! I’m not making close to what they’re making yet.”
