I’m the first to admit that I’m not a big NBA fan. I do enjoy the college game, so I don’t hate the game. I’ve taken issue with some aspects of the pro game in recent years, so I gave up a bit on the NBA. Don’t get me wrong, I do follow the Wizards since they’re the closest team to me geographically speaking, but I’m not at the point where I have to watch every single game. I do find myself following guys that I loved while they were in the NCAA, and that’s what brings me to this post.
I’ve found myself on more than one occasion watching Blazer games. (Probably because of this guy!) I’ve also discovered that this team is not only fun to watch, but they’re kinda hot! So take a trip with me to Rip City after the jump.
Up first…it has to be Brandon Roy
Then we have my dirty little crush –
Then we have the adorable Jerryd Bayless
Now move over Rafael Nadal…there’s a new Mallorcan in town! My new crush…
Ok so you may not find him the hottest, more like hideously goofy, but I had to include some love for the reason that I now love the Blazers: Steve Blake.
and because of I love pictures of men holding babies…here’s Steve with his son.
Now indulge me for a second here…but thinking about Steve Blake brings back fond memories of my sophomore year of college when Mr. Blake and Company led the Terps to their first ever National Title. I was in Atlanta for the Final Four that year, and it was my greatest sports moment. Ahh the good ole days! Here is some love for Steve and the two greatest plays in his years at Maryland.
