    1990-91: Overall record: 63-19 (1st in league)
    The Trail Blazers picked up where they left off the previous season when they were in the NBA Finals and captured world-wide basketball attention. They posted the league's best record, 63-19, the most wins ever by the franchise. They opened by winning their first 11 games and 19 of their first 20. They took their first eight away from home, extending a road winning streak over two seasons to 12 which equaled the second longest in NBA history.CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team

    Two teams who are eerily similar in talent, only separated by their primes. The core players are the same for both, but the 91 team saw Porter, Kersey, and Duckworth all have their peak seasons and Drexler was in the midst of his prime. Only Buck was on the tail end of his prime seasons. In 93, the talent was still great, winning 53 games, but their bodies could not hold up as injuries took over the season. 91 wins this one hands down.

    1991 all the way. Porter, Kersey, Buck, and Duck just dropped off way too much from 91 to 93. Drexler was banged up as well. The 91 team had all the stars aligned..just too bad they had one helluva bad weekend in Los Angeles and nothing to show for their epic 63 win season.

    Those L*kers! This and the 2000 WCF are series where that hatred for the yellow and purple really come through. It was Magic and Worthy vs. that balanced starting 5 of Portland all in their prime of their careers. Great team to watch play.

    If you or anyone else is interested in the behind-the-scene aspect of that 63 win season, I highly recommend reading The Long, Hot Winter which follows theteam throughout the season narrated from the perspective of head coach Rick Adleman.

    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.

    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...
