Quick: Camby’s Play Will Be Key for Blazers

submitted 5 years ago by in Rip City

After the Trail Blazers’ season-opening victory over Philadelphia on Monday, there will be plenty of talk about the production of LaMarcus Aldridge, the grit of Gerald Wallace, the flash of Jamal Crawford and the pace of Raymond Felton.

None of it matters, though, unless ageless center Marcus Camby is there to hold it all together.

So go ahead and applaud Aldridge’s 25 points. Marvel at Wallace’s street-fighter-like 21 points and nine rebounds. Get excited about Crawford’s play in that decisive fourth-quarter run, when he was a whirlwind of slicing drives, swishing shots and swirling passes.

Just don’t forget what Captain Camby did during the Blazers’ 107-103 opening-night win.
