Portland Trailblazers Power Rankings 🏕

2021.12.07 21:02 YoungDonTomtom Portland Trailblazers Power Rankings 🏕

The Portland Trailblazers have been pretty much as expected this year. A combination of new coaching and now front office scrutiny with almost no change in roster this offseason has resulted in uncertainty on the bench and panic in the PNW.
Traditionally the Blazers step it up post All-Star break as they try to sneak into the playoffs so fantasy owners can hope for that but don’t be surprised to see them make drastic changes in the coming weeks.
Top Fantasy Options

1. Damian Lillard 2. CJ McCollum 3. Jusuf Nurkic 4. Norman Powell 5. Anfernee Simon 
POINTS •Damian Lillard [21.4 PPG] •CJ McCollum [20.6 PPG] •Norm Powell [17 PPG]
REBOUNDS •Jusuf Nurkic [10.2 RPG] •Nasir Little [5.3 RPG] •Larry Nance Jr. [4.9 RPG]
ASSISTS •Damian Lillard [7.8 APG] •CJ McCollum [4.5 APG] •Dennis Smith Jr. [3.2 APG]
STEALS •Dennis Smith Jr.[1.4 SPG] •Jusuf Nurkic [1.4 SPG] •CJ McCollum [1.3 SPG]
BLOCKS •Robert Covington [1 BPG] •CJ McCollum [0.7 BPG] •Nassir Little [0.6 BPG]
Notable Players 🏀 Damian Lillard (*Abdominal injury 1-2 weeks)
The star player of the team having a career slump to start the season amongst media pressure to blow it all up doesn’t seem to help the Portland Trailblazers situation.
He was entering the season with a nagging abdominal injury that he is currently recovering from. Fantasy owners were hoping that this was the main cause for his slow start and now that it’s finally getting addressed he could possibly show his first round fantasy value when he returns.
Dame hasn’t played with an all-star caliber player since Lamarcus Aldridge in 2015. Let that sink in. If the Trailblazers front office decides to make trades he has the potential to benefit from another offensive focus or lose fantasy value should his usage goes down.
He is bullishly committed to staying in Portland despite media pressure. I’m not even a Blazers fan and I always feel bad for this man in the playoffs. If only you could get fantasy points for loyalty.
21.5ppg // 4rpg // 7.8apg // 1.1stks //
🏀 CJ McCollum
He’s been picking up the offensive slack this year and has been the most reliable player on this roster this season. His availability will always be a question but so far he’s been stellar fantasy-wise.
He seems to be the name that always comes up in trade talks so it wouldn’t be surprising to see him get shipped off while he’s been playing above his expectations.
Fantasy owners need to keep an eye on him throughout the season. If he gets traded it would be reasonable to see him take a hit in fantasy value as he gets acclimated to his new team. On this Blazers roster he’s currently a sell-high as the number one option with Dame out.
20.6ppg // 4.1rpg // 4.5apg // 1.8stks //
🏀 Jusuf Nurkic
He hasn’t been as quick on the offensive since returning from injury and his defense on some nights looks borderline passive especially against physical big men.
He has a high upside fantasy wise and he’s shown glimpses of his potential this season. He’s the best post up player on this team and IMO he shouldn’t be. Should the Blazers trade for a complimentary big men I could see Nurkic thriving as a stretch facilitator.
13.4ppg // 10.2rpg // 2.2apg // 1.7stks //
Honorable Mention 🏀 Norman Powell
Coming from Toronto and transitioning last season owners saw a glimpse into how he could work within the system. Powell has had more time on the floor in Portland but less opportunity to produce. He’s borderline roster-able but apart from the occasional high scoring game he provides not much else stats wise.
His role as the third option leaves him sitting on the 3pt line and waiting for the open shot. He’s traditionally played at the guard position so his dribble penetration is limited and with Chauncey Billups still figuring out the offense he’s been pretty quiet to start the season.
12ppg // 2.6rpg // 2.2apg // 0.7stks //
🏀 Anfernee Simons
He’s been a great offensive spark off the bench and has shown to step it up when called upon to be a starter. He’s competing with Norm Powell in minutes and has shown to be the better option offensively so far.
Once Norman gets more use to his role and develops further with the starting unit Simons usage could go down but as of now he’s shown to be the more consistent option between the two when he gets the minutes.
12ppg // 2.6rpg // 2.2apg // 0.7stks //

2021.12.07 21:02 jumykn Trading Stories Hero Soul to Sparkly?

Hey guys, it's my first actual time playing this game but I'm fairly versed in it as I've watched multiple playthroughs. My only issue is that the wiki says I can trade the soul for a silver coronet and that is right up my mage's alley. Only problem, I don't have the option of dropping souls. Is the wiki wrong here? I know I can get one in 3-1 but I already got the soul near the Vanguard and so I might as well use it if I can. Any help is appreciated. Thanks guys.

2021.12.07 21:02 Emmazingx Promotion on social media?

Has anyone noticed how Alicia Debnam-Carey doesn't seem to promote the show as much as she used to on Instagram and other platforms? Meanwhile Colman Domingo is posting FTWD-related stuff ever week or so. Don't they usually have a clause in their contract that says that they have to do promotion on social media? Do you think ADC not really posting about the show is a coincidence or a sign that she is not invested in it as much as she used to?

I need to write an explanation of why my characters are where they are. I'm writing a war story in a fictional conflict and I need to explain why the soldiers are deployed there, what they're fighting for, and the stakes if they lose. How can I write this without creating an exposition dump?

2021.12.07 21:02 wordboydave How Do You Handle Psionics?

It seems like, RAW, the game puts everyone in a sort of no-win situation wrt psionics. Whether you let players roll it randomly or just say, "Fine, you can have psionics," there's no balancing mechanism to prevent the psionic character from being way more powerful (and presumably more interesting) than the other players.
What balancing strategies have you used to keep psionics in check? Or am I overestimating the power of psionics?

Based on suggestions of previous posts I tried batwing and it worked great for about ten days until he figured out how to get out of it.
Tried the love to dream swaddle tonight. He's shoving his arms through the neck hole and pulling the snoo sack over his face.
Any other suggestions?

I just updated yesterday, and after going into live mode after build mode I can’t change between the floor levels, so I’m just stuck outside the house.
Anyone else having this issues? I’ve looked online for solutions and I’m going to go through my mods folder in an attempt to fix it.
Any solutions is welcomed.

So I tried several plugins and searching in the main source code but was unable to figure out how to remove the dim effect on the entire rest of the screen during dialogue with the "Show Message". I am trying to use a HUD to display the characters face just above the dialogue box, but it is dimmed out every time. Anyone have experience changing this or recommend plugins? I've tried VISU and YEP MessageCore

the moon
in the middle of the night
it's bright white glow
simmering in the place on the sun shine
it's my only firend that stayed when the others left
it was there in my darkness moments when i wept
not talking
but listening to me when no one else did
I wish people would do that
but only the moon could

2021.12.07 21:02 HumilityKey101 Combo Confusion

Recently I've been trying to learn a certain combo for Adult Gohan (Notation: 2M 5M sj j.MLL2H sd j.MLL2H jc j.LLL), but although the notation specifies a jump cancel before j.LLL it appears that there's no way for me to jump at that point (I can still do the j.LLL though without the jump cancel). I've added a video of myself doing this combo, so if you can find out what I'm doing wrong (or if the notation is wrong), please let me know in the comments. Any help is much appreciated.
