Phoenix Suns vs. Portland Trail Blazers
However well they might do this year, Your Sunnies are a team on an inevitable decline. Portland is either the NBA's team of tomorrow or its biggest bust, and which way the Blazers go depends on the bum foot of presumed superstar Greg Oden (pictured), the big-upside center who's played only a handful of games in the NBA over the course of two seasons because of injury woes. But if Oden ever gets that giant paw healthy, and guards Jerryd Bayless and Brandon Roy play up to their potential, look out. (P.S. Both Bayless and Blazers power forward Channing Frye are University of Arizona products.)
