One of The Greatest Team Their Never Was?

Looking back at the 2009-2010 Portland Trailblazers roster, I can't help but wonder what if Greg Oden and Brandon Roy never had knee problems and this team ended up reaching their full potential and Greg progressed as he should have? They could've had their own big three before it was cool; La'Marcus Aldrige, Brandon Roy, and a healthy Greg Oden could have been very deadly ,they also had a very good point guard in Andre miller. Their bench was also very good and had a ton of potential with guys that could catch fire and score in bunches like Rudy Fernandez, Martell Webster, Jerryd Bayless, Nic Batum, Steve Blake, Patty mills, and Travis outlaw. They also had good backup bigs in Joel Pryzbilla, juwan Howard, and Kurt Thomas. How good do you think the trailblazers could have been if they never had 2 of their most important young players careers derailed by knee problems and kept this core together?

That roster was crazy

That roster was crazy talented but all of their egos and character issues killed this team off the court not on. Portland has done a great job of gathering great but underachieving teams over the years
