    After watching the Fans on the Street Part 2 video HERE, it got me thinking, "What is everyone's most memorable moment?"

    I've been a fan since 1990 (5 years old), so while there were amazing happenings over those course of those early years, I don't remember too much specifically. But two moments do stick out immediately for me.

    1- Game 4 of the 2010 WC 1st round. Not the biggest stage and we didn't even win the series, but to be in the arena and finding out through word of mouth that not only was B-Roy suited up but was going to play was something unmatched by any other RG feeling. There was a buzz in the RG that afternoon and to see him walking out of the locker room, the crowd erupted. It was one of the only times where I got tingly at the Garden.

    1A- 2007 Draft Lottery. My wife and best friend are running through Safeway trying to get our food ready in time for the DL and he calls that we're getting the #2 pick as we head into the car to get back home and I had a sneaky feeling something better might be in store. As we all watched in the bedroom, we did all of the rituals (on knees, whispering please,please,please,etc) hoping our logo doesn't get called at #9, then #8, #7, and finally, when it was Minnesota at #6, we knew we had made the Top 3, but we still knew it was a 2 player draft and being at #3 wouldn't be good enough. After the Hawks got called at #3, I just knew there was no way we weren't getting #1. We nearly came through the roof jumping so much after we found out we got #1.

    Although it hasn't turned out the way we had hoped so far, to think our franchise actually had that much luck to move up to #1 was amazing. At the time, we felt like it was our time to start a dynasty.

    Oh yeah, that was awesome. Everytime I think about this question though, I think about Brandon's loooong 3 to win at home against Houston.

    Me and my buddy were sitting about 20 rows back at that end. The row in front of us was always sold to fans of the road team for some reason. When Yao got fouled 6 or 7 asian dudes sitting in the row in front of us wearing Yao jerseys were the only ones standing in the building. They were all smiling ear to ear and doing a chant in Chinese (Cantonese, Mandarin, whatever). I had to hold my buddy back. After the Portland time out it was silent. Then Brandon got the ball and took that crazy off balance fade away over the whole defense from 5' behind the line and it SWISHED! The whole crowd exploded. Everyone was jumping up and down. Complete strangers hugging eachother and high fiving. IT WAS AMAZING! I have NEVER seen anything like it before or since. Thinking about it even now gives me chills. When things settled a little, I turned around and the whole row in front of me was gone. Classic! I will never forget that day. That's what it's all about.

    btw - the friend I was with was I guy I met on this site (the old one). still one of my best friends. Thanks J-mo, those tickets were yours that night. Not only my most memorable Blazer moment, but up there with the best of my life (yeah, maybe I have a boring life). That's one of those stories I'll be telling my grandkids and they'll be calling my BS. But we all know it's all true.  ;)

    I have three, though some will probably disagree with one or two.

    Top has to be that Houston finish. What a shot by Roy!

    My favorite player is Rudy, so when he scored 5 points in 3 seconds I got crazy!

    This one is going to be what people disagree with. I had never been to a playoff game before. I went to the first game that was in Portland against the Suns. Sadly, we got blown out. That was my favorite game ever. I remember we couldn't even hear them announce the Suns names because we were so loud in the beginning. All I wanted to see that night was Rudy knock down a big 3. So were waiting all night long, and had given up. This was going to be the same as any other effort that he put in last years playoffs. Then BAM! Knocks down a three! Gets the ball back and knocks down a second! Then a third! That was one of my favorite moments ever because it's my favorite player knocking down great shots in a playoff atmosphere.

    If you have never been to a playoff game, buy any ticket in the building and go next year! It is an experience like you can not imagine!

    Recently-

    Game 6 of the 2000 WCF when we routed the Lakers and were seemingly en route to greatness.

    Historically-

    With Clyde Drexler on the bench after fouling out, Portland rallied from about 8 down in the final minutes to force overtime during Game 2 of the 92 Finals in Chicago Stadium. I thought we'd come home and wrap the series up or at least take 2 of 3 and win it in Chicago.

    SO out here in AZ it was a tough post season, well lets be real, it was tough everyday hearing the bandwagon Suns fan (including my little brother) ramble on about how good the suns were. Well he and I like to go to each game when the Blazers come to town and have seats right behind the Blazer bench, well on Mar 22nd this year, ESPN caught me and my GF completely disappointed in a freeze frame for everyone to see on National TV. While my little brother stood next to me and cheered for the Suns...I will never forget this. Mostly because of this picture.

    I was fortunate enough to be at Game 4 of the first round last year... and it was freaking tight. Best moment ever that I've witnessed in person for the Blazers (wasn't around for the early 90's finals). Also, watching Roy hit the game winner two seasons ago against houston and watching us win the NBA lottery were amazing too. My favorite moment was game 4 of last year, but we didn't end up winning the series. It was still memorable though. Also another random thought, but I was at the largest comeback of Blazers history about four seasons ago sitting right behind the Blazers bench, down by 27 points I believe in the first half, and came back and won. Pretty sweet game
    I am a fan of winning.

    Most memorable moment was game 5 I believe of the 08-09 playoffs against Houston. That whole game was a beautiful performance by Brandon Roy. He scored I believe 42 points with what looked like ease. Attacking the basket, crossing over and pulling up in Artests or Battier's face, posting up, whatever. He was unstoppable that night and he showed me something that I really didn't think he had. In my mind he went from average all-star to rising superstar. He showed the determination that Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant have when their team needs them the most.
