But after the game, the eight-year NBA veteran admitted to playing somewhat timid with his new team and in a new role. "Obviously, I was a little passive," Afflalo said after the game. "They want me to be my best but out of respect for my teammates you want to come out there and feel the game (out) a little bit, so I was a little passive. But I see the potential and I see the opportunity there and I learn from Game 1 and become more and more aggressive with confidence." Oregonian

On Friday, Afflalo wrote a first-person blog post for The Players' Tribune, a web site featuring stories written by professional athletes, during which he said, in part: "I want to make this clear: I'm here to help this team reach its goal of winning a title. It's been 38 years since the Trail Blazers last won an NBA championship. It isn't just enough to be a contender -- it's time for us to show the media, fans and most importantly, ourselves, why we're a championship-caliber team." On Saturday, Afflalo echoed a similar sentiment. "I was excited," he said, revealing his reaction to news of his trade. "To come from (a losing team) to this one here, to a team that's right in the thick of things and trying to contend for a championship, I couldn't help but be happy." Oregonian
