At this moment the Blazers have completed their first exhibition game of the new season. After the trade of Damian Lillard and a flurry of activity, they are about to enter the new season with a totally revamped roster of young studs and a few oldies that will hopefully prove to be goldies! Right off of the bat I will say they produce above the expectations of experts, and I am predicting 42 to 52 wins, yes, a winning season!
Now I will proceed with some of the numbers that lead me to that bold prediction:
First is some repeated numerological info to introduce you, or refresh your memory of the basics for the Blazers. Starting with the organization’s numbers.
Portland Trail Blazers
76923154 29193 2318591=90 9 Accomplished #
6 1 19 1 5 =23= 5 Inner #
7 923 54 29 3 23 8 91=67= 4 Outer #
90+7= 7 Destiny #
Next, the founding owner:
Paul Gardner Allen
7133 7194559 13355=71=8 8 IS
13 1 5 1 5 =16= 7 S
7 3 7 945 9 33 5= 55(1) P
1 21 1953= 22(4) LN</st
The new owner: Jo Lynn “Jody” Allen is 7,1, (44)8 with LN 30=3 and 11(2) Destiny.
Some numbers of note:
NBA Franchise received on 2 24 1970=25=7 Date of Birth
Frist Game on 1016 1970=25=7
Won only NBA title 6 4 1977=23=7
NOTE: I would like to include the GM, but am unable to find any biographical details online. By using his public name, Joe Cronin, we get a 4, 8 and 5. Hmm.
Chauncey Billups =80=8 IS
This year is a 7 year 2+0+2+3=7 and 2024 will be an 8 universal year. Looking at this Billups will have proven his coaching ability by the end of next season (24-25), or he will be questioned2026. If he hits stride on his numbers for this year the Blazers will “fare they well”. The numbers of incumbents and new comers suggest he has the numerical tools to do very well. I am not going to list all of the players and numbers here. The curious can get the name and birthdate on Wikipedia and then plug that information into the calculator on this website.
Deandre Ayton comes with a 44=8 and 99=9 which fits the Blazers dreams and links with Billups. As long as they get along, it will be well and he will flourish. If the match goes bad, it will most likely go irreconcilably bad and one will go. Brogdon comes with a 4, 50=5 and an 8. He will become a “specialist” of sorts and contribute a unique set of skills at the right time and place. Scoot has an 8, 5, 4, an 11-2 and 100=1 destiny. He fits in every way and will show almost “unearthly” plays at times over his career here.
Sharpe comes on well this year and his numbers are in a previous article, as with Simons who will be steady and solid. The numerical possible “surprises” for the year are Jabari Walker and “Tsunami” Camara. Jabari’s numbers are in a previous article and Camara lists a 4, 22=4 and 9. With hard work and time he will be a “dream” of a player. Kris Murray has promise, but may be more of a trade factor that long term.
Numerical suggestion to Chauncey Billups. PLAY THE TALENT! Junk the, too often used and predictable 8 man rotation. If you are going to run them to death at both ends for 82 games, consider a platoon system. First team: Scoot, Simons, Jabari Walker, Grant and Ayton. Second team: Brogdon, Sharpe, Thybulle,Williams and Moses Brown. Gives the starters some needed rest and uses more of “the talent”.
From the perspective here the Blazers are on numerical track and the next three years will not only entertain and please, but will lead to the big cheese in the sky known as The Ring by the end of the 2025-26 NBA season. If not, Billups could well be out.
