Portland Trail Blazers Twitter Account Has Jokes

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — One of the NBA’s pleasant surprises this season has been the Portland Trail Blazers. They’re off to a blazing 16-3 start, and last night’s win over the Thunder gave them the lead in the Western Conference. (We talked about the Blazers a good bit on this week’s Hangtime Podcast.)

Of course, leading in the Western Conference is quite a feat, considering that the West this season has been much more potent than the Eastern Conference, which (other than Indiana and Miami) has been a bit lackluster — the third place team in the conference in Washington, at 9-9).

The Blazers’ official Twitter account joked about the disparity between Conferences yesterday…

The real irony here? If the Blazers were in the East with their current record, instead of leading the Conference they’d be in second place behind Indiana (a team they beat earlier this week).
