What is this site?

A Portland Trail Blazers and NBA basketball blog providing news, stats, opinion, videos and analysis for the entire team. This website is meant to fill in the gap that the current Blazer blogs do not cover, or cover well enough. During the season, this site is updated many times per week with game previews, summaries, analysis, news, and rumors.

Explain the name.
