    1976-77:Overall record: 49-33 (tie, 4th in league, 3rd in conference, 2nd in division)
    Blazermania is born. The Trail Blazers crowned a storybook season by besting favored Philadelphia to win the NBA Championship, a first-ever world title for Portland. The capper came June 5 in Memorial Coliseum when Coach Jack Ramsay's club pulled out a 109-107 thriller in the sixth and deciding game. The Blazers became only the second team in NBA history to go all the way in their first trip to the playoffs.CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team



    1999-00: Overall record: 59-23 (2nd in league, 2nd in conference, 2nd in division)
    Three losses---two of them on the basketball court---clouded an otherwise outstanding season for the Trail Blazers who recorded 59 victories to match their second-best best finish in franchise history. The biggest setback came May 5, just two days before the team opened its semifinal playoff series against Utah, when popular assistant coach Bill Musselman lost a six-month battle with a rare disease, primary systemic amyloidosis. Two weeks earlier, the Blazers lost their regular season finale at home to Denver, 96-95, and failed to post the franchise's second 60-win season.CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team

    The intangibles are what sets apart the 77 teams from the 00 team. On paper, I would take the 2000 team, but they couldn't seal the deal while the 77 team not only stormed through the first 3 rounds of the playoffs, but when adversity faced them in the Finals, they met it and ended up destroying Philly. It would be a travesty if the only championship winning team in our history didn't even make it to the Final Four.

    Considering this is a one-game situation, I'll take the 2000 team. They had veterans on that team who had been there before and were more athletic than the 77 team. Damon, Anthony, Smith, Bonzi, Pip, Augmon, Sheed, BG, Sabas, and Jermaine O'neal?!? That is just too much.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

     

    Thank God they are 19 games over 500.  Mayb...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
