While they have had a free flowing offense, their defense has often been a major letdown. With an exciting attacking backcourt of Lillard and CJ McCollum, the Blazers put up big numbers on the board, but their lack luster defense limits Portland.

This has resulted in multiple first round exits over the last five years. In the ongoing playoffs, Lillard and Co. had a great chance to make a deep playoff run. Facing off against an injury-ridden Nuggets side, the Blazers were favorites.

With the NBA playoffs still going on, the rumor mill of the league is just getting started. Expect to see many of these posts and tweets about players and their speculated destinations once the off-season gets going.

As for Lillard, the Blazers will hope that they can pull off some much needed moves and add some defensive depth to their side. With Lillard’s prime running out, the Blazers have to capitalize on their superstar’s talent.

So far they have been a disappointment in building a competent support cast around the 6-time All-Star. Will all of it change next season? Can the Blazers become an overnight championship contender this off-season?
