Oregon sports history

April 17-21, 2007

The Blazers have just finished the NBA season and are celebrating an 11-win improvement from 2005-06 — and their 32-50 record under second-year coach Nate McMillan. Zach Randolph led the team with 23.6 points and 10.1 rebounds per game, and LaMarcus Aldridge and Brandon Roy showed promise, with Roy (16.8 points per game) earning NBA rookie of the year honors and Aldridge (9.0) also making the league’s all-rookie team.
