08:06 AM ET 08.09 | A new sheriff has arrived in Portland. Terry Stotts may not have been the sexiest hire, but when he was introduced Wednesday as the new Trail Blazers coach, he probably raised a few eyebrows with an intriguing vision of his new team. These Blazers, Stotts says, will favor the three-point shot. They will play at a fast pace. They will be given the freedom to create, as long as they show trust in teammates to pass. And over-dribbling will be frowned upon. Of course, all this will be attempted with a young and largely unproven roster outside of cornerstones LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Batum and Wesley Matthews, so nobody on Wednesday was making any grand predictions about the playoffs or win totals.

Watching Batum cheapshot Navarro in the Olympics....... Despite the huge, foolish money/years that the Trailblazers gave this mediocre talent, this is the first memorable shot we've ever seen from him........
