This season, his rim protection numbers are similarly strong. And the Blazers have benefited. "I just think it's a concentration thing for me," Kaman said. "I think some years, I haven't taken the initiative to put myself in the position to be more of a defensive-minded player. I've been trying to do more scoring. But I knew, coming here, I was going to have to do a little bit of both. So I've just been trying to focus on doing my job defensively. And when [Aldridge] goes out, try to be a little more aggressive offensively to score." NBA.com

The problem: The Blazers are stacked at forward, which is Claver’s listed position. Nicolas Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge, Thomas Robinson and Dorell Wright are the team’s forwards; hence, the numbers are stacked against Claver. “Every player on the team can play,” Claver said. “I understand the situation. I don’t like, of course, being inactive every game, but I understand the situation and I just keep working for games that I can have the chance to play.” CSNNW.com

If Lopez had his way, he'd enjoy this view for the foreseeable future. He will be a free agent after this season, but he has no desire to leave Portland. "I really love it here," Lopez said. "I fee like I've really found a niche. Nothing is set in stone, but I'm comfortable here, I'm happy here." Oregonian

When the sunny summer skies transition into the gloomy gray months of winter, Lopez, a native of Fresno, Calif., doesn't sit around and daydream about warmer, brighter days. "I know a lot of people hate it, but I've always loved the rain," he says, smiling and shaking his head. "I just, I don't know, I love the rain. I love gray days where the rain's just pouring down." As the mist drops across Portland, Lopez, who lives on the 27th floor of a high-rise, lounges among the clouds, drawing or reading, and finds comfort. It's not for everybody. But for Lopez, it feels like home. "I love it right now," he said. "Sitting around, watching it rain -- especially on the 27th floor -- it's like watching it from above, almost." Oregonian
