what do you do to try to stop them? you can't, just slow them down. >> another difference that we see in a week. houston rockets, no sign of the head coach and relaxed a very spirited trailer blazer team. a couple hours away from tip- off. >> even though he plays for the portland trailblazers. that whole story with damian lillard is cool. grows up from oakland and in the nba and playing in front of his hometown crowd if you will. >> and this guy is the bona fide nba all-star and would have been an all-star and should have been an all-star but kobe bryant got the nod out of sentimentity. he is a sensation. >> as a kid he promised his mother i will graduate from college and be in the nba. i dob no if he graduated yet.
