I watched every game of the Portland Trailblazers for 2-3 seasons when Travis Outlaw had success there. Portland, much like Sacramento is overlooked by tons of media coverage, and the average NBA fan is not in tune with either teams rotation. Portland fans and media openly talked about Travis Outlaw's misunderstood role on the team.
Six foot eight, skinny, fast, decent handles, can shoot, and excels in making pull up jumpshots off of faceup dribble drives. This screams small forward or possibly even playing playing a couple minutes at the two in a big lineup...
Travis Outlaw cannot guard small forwards or anyone faster due to his poor lateral quickness.
Outlaw had a ton of success playing in Portland's small lineup. Lamarcus Aldridge would slide over to center. Outlaw would replace a defensive center (Pryzbilla). The Blazer's would play defense at the 3 (Nic Batum) and 1 (Andre Miller). Portland ran their offense through Brandon Roy and had three good shoot options (Outlaw, Roy, and Aldridge). They closed every game with this lineup. Outlaw made a ton of big shots in 4th quarters. Jump shots and dunks when bigs were not fast enough to guard him.
