2013/14 NBA Team Preview Haikus: Portland Trailblazers


High flying slam dunks, gorgeous crossovers, a beautifully executed give and go – basketball is an art form.  So, with that in mind, The Hoops Manifesto is putting an artistic twist on your run of the mill NBA team previews: our previews for all 30 NBA teams will take the form of a haiku.  Next up: Portland Trailblazers
