     2. Rose Garden Arena (Portland Trail Blazers)
    After the Blazers drafted Brandon Roy in ‘06 and returned to winning status, the Rose Garden has been sold out on a nightly basis. Ranking fourth in the NBA with a 34-7 mark at home last season, the atmosphere at the Rose is unlike any other in the NBA. The fans go hard and are committed, probably because there is no other professional team in the area. But when the game is on, it’s almost as if you’re watching a game in a college town — a nonstop screaming fest. The fans are extremely loud, and very much in tune to what’s going on. When the referees are off their game, you better believe they’ll hear about it. Believe me; if you ever step into the Rose Garden, you’re in for one wild night.

    I can live with #2. At times I think we are the toughest, but you have to factor in how historically difficult it has been for opposing teams to win in Utah. Sometimes, they would only lose 4-5 games a season in that arena. Hopefully if they take a little bit of a dive this season, we can take claim to the #1 spot. But this is something we, as fans, can influence heavily. Bring it every night and lets let that home record shine. Whose house is this?

    This must be not so recent, because we definitely lost more than 7 games at home last year lol. This is from the 2008-2009 season. But yeah number 2 sounds about right.
    I am a fan of winning.

    Until our home record becomes that of Utah, we shouldn't be above them. We need the opposition to feel like there is no hope walking out of the RG with a W. I thought we had a little bit of that in 2009, but last year we dropped off some. I think the injuries messed with the team and the fans. But we need to be LOUD this season.

    dude thats wack
    First off, where are the thunder, or did that laker matchup last year not mean anything to anyone?
    Second, like how many times have i seen teams blow out the kings and the warriors.
    Third, i feel as if maybe, just maybe one east coast team should make it in here,
    But i do agree with the utah, they have always had that rep.
    I am a fan of The Blazers ♂, the £-Train, and of course, The ¤ King. ™

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    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...
