For Wednesday: Oden Questionable, Dancers Votable

News travels fast in these parts, even when it's coming from Indiana, so you've probably already heard that Greg Oden has been upgraded to questionable for tomorrow's game against our ol' friend Jarrett Jack and the rest of the Pacers. The two-point win against Indy at the Rose Garden back on March 4 was the first Blazers victory against the Pacers in the last ten tries, so it would certainly be helpful to have all hands on deck for Wednesday's tilt. G.O would undoubtedly like to play in his return to Indiana, so keep your fingers crossed for him, and for us.

Second order of business: It's NBA Dancer Bracket Time! The yearly battle for dancer supremacy started yesterday, with the BlazersDancers drawing a first-round Wednesday matchup with the Houston Rockets PowerDancers. The winner goes advances to take on the winner of the Jazz/Timberwolves matchup. I've seen both of those squads in person, and I can guarantee the BlazerDancers can and would stomp either team into submission.

But they have to beat the Rockets PowerDancers first, a team that made the finals in 2007. They got warmer weather and most of China on their side, but that should be no match for you, the devoted Trail Blazers fan. You can vote here starting first thing tomorrow, but you have to be an NBA All-Access member to cast ballots, so go sign up now if you haven't already.

Imagine if oden stayed as a bench player the rest of the year and stick with przybilla as the starting big man (he def. deserves it). The starting 5 will be the sure thing calm and steady 5 - featuring Blake, Roy, Batum, LA, and The Thrilla - Blake Batum and Joel being there as supporting cast and to keep the gae steady for the 2 guns. Then off the bench is the pounding, hungry bunch featuring Outlaw, Rudy and now Oden (amongst others) all 3 of these guys should be starters and they will play like they have something to prove every time on the court. When the Blazers have to sub out the starters other teams wont just not take them lightly, other teams will actually fear cuz this 2nd unit will put up more points than the starters minus Broy and LA.
Oh and don't forget that they're run by Sergio or Bayless - yeah they like to move. Fast.
