They arn't that young...they are young by age...but a lot of their guys have been in the league for a little while...Martel is going into his 3rd season...Outlaw...his 4th season...Jack's 3rd season
These 3rd and 4th season are the seasons young guys usually break out and you can tell what they are really going to be in this league plus Blake is playoff expeirenced
It's ok though...I'll come brag when Portland is in the playoff race at the All-Star break much like the Seattle Mariners are right now...another team said to be young and a few years away from the playoffs...but sitting right there...this season
You know. It could go either way. I think it will be a close call to whether they make the 8th seed or not.
