Q: What do you think back to as your best NBA blocked shot? Who wins in a game of 21 between the Morris twins and you? Thomas Robinson: "Corey Brewer. That was my best."

It was crazy." Oregonian

Damian Lillard, Miss Oregon 2014 Emma Palett and other Portland Trail Blazers players including CJ McCollum, Dorell Wright, Will Barton and Thomas Robinson were on hand at the Armory Annex building in Portland on Wednesday night to help ring in the new year and party their way into 2015. Lillard said he wanted to put on the event to have some fun on New Year's in Portland, but also as a benefit for the Brian Grant Foundation. "I'm pretty familiar with Brian Grant," Lillard said. "I've gotten to know him so I wanted to support that. I know with the Trail Blazers being the only show in town pretty much and me being one of the guys on the team I figured I could make people more interested in being a part of it and more money could be donated because of it."

After all, when you have been where he has, being unsure whether you will start or not doesn't even register on the drama scale. His NBA journey to this point? "If I wanted to complain about it, I would say it's been unfair,'' Robinson said. "If I stick to me and not complain about it, I would say I've just had a tough road.'' Oregonian

Robinson could have a bigger spot in the rotation in the coming weeks as starting center Robin Lopez will be sidelined six to seven weeks with a fractured right hand. Below is a full transcript of Robinson's interview with reporters at Blazers practice on Tuesday after Robinson's surprise inclusion the in the lineup. Do you have an idea how you might be used going forward? Coach didn't say anything. He said it's a game day decision. Right now I just got to do what I've been doing: staying ready so when I am on the floor I make something happen. That's all I can go off of right now; the rest is up to people above me. Oregonian

How surprised were you when coach called your name last night? Very. Like I said I don't know how many DNPs I got, but I'm sure (it is) 20 or close damn near. Some games it's hard to fight knowing you're going into the game not playing and you're just chilling. Or going to the game and you're just going to watch the game there. Or I'm going to have a bad attitude. It's tough. You've got to fight that side everyday. Last night I was just watching the game being there for my team. I didn't know I was going to play. It was a shock. Oregonian

The decision to pass on Robinson's option doesn't necessarily mean his time in Portland will end after this season. The Blazers can still sign him as a free agent for a salary that is equal to or lower than the amount of what his team option would have been. Oregonian

Portland coach Terry Stotts confirmed a series of tweets from the Blazers organization that a three- to four-foot snake was removed from the visiting locker room Thursday at the AT&T Center before the second game of the Western Conference semifinals. “I didn’t (see it), but they said it was a rattle snake,” Stotts said. “They said it was a young one. I wasn’t here for it. But one tweet said Thomas (Robinson) jumped a few feet. It’s bizarre to have a venomous snake in your locker room. I don’t know if that’s happened before. That sounds like an ABA story.” San Antonio Express-News

Living in a condo near Portland State. Enjoying his time as a Blazer. "I love it in Portland," said Robinson, who will be in coach Terry Stotts' rotation for Wednesday night's Game 2 of the Portland-Houston first-round playoff series at the Toyota Center. "The city's so chill to me, so relaxing. Once you get past the rain, you be fine." Portland Tribune
