    89-90 and I don't think it'd be terribly close. I believe the 99 team was a great, scrappy, but overachieving team. When it counted, they really had no one who could simply turn it on. I mean, JR Rider was the leading scorer at 13 a game. I'd bet the 90 team had at least 3-4 players who scored more than that. Not to mention one team got swept in the conference finals while one made it to the NBA Finals.

    I think one could be a clean sweep. The 99 team was a year away from being great and didn't have the type of veteran leadership the 90 team did. CD and TP would absolutely eat Mighty Mouse and Rider alive. Buck v Rasta would have been the highlight of this series though. 2 of the best at what they did.

    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...
