    Hey everyone. We're going to be doing a feature on like we did last year showcasing the Top Trail Blazers Plays of the 2008-09 Season. We want to hear from you guys on what you think the top 10 plays should be. I'll take all your entries, create a poll and let you guys vote.

    Please list them out in your responses below! I've got a couple on my list:

    1) Brandon's .8 Game Winner
    2) Rudy's 5 points in 3 seconds
    3) LaMarcus' thunder-dunk over Dampier
    4) Bayless' 2-handed slam vs New Jersey
    5) Roy's 52 explosion (not one play, but still exciting)

    That should get us talking. What are some of yours?

    Number one is obviously Roy's 30 ft heave. How about his MONSTER left handed block late in the season (sadly I can't remember what team it was against, help anyone??).
    LA dunking on the birdman after he acted like a (your choice of word) when he got an easy help side block right back in the face of Rudy and acted like it was some AMAZING rejection.
    Rudy's behind the back pass between two players for the uncontested breakaway.
    Steve Blake about to fight Oberto (was oberto right? long season cant remember everything exactly).
    Przybilla about to knock Chandler's head right off his shoulders (maybe a slight exaggeration).
    I'm surprised nobody said Roy's buzzer beater finger roll against the knicks.
    Bayless' one handed alley-oop against denver(?).

    And then the obvious ones, LA over Dampier, Outlaw game winner in Memphis, Bayless two-handed throw down, Roy's 52, Blake's 14 assists, etc.

    My favorite, just to be original, has to be Roy's left handed rejection into the stands.

    It HAS been a long and thrilling season chalk-full of highlights so let's see here..
    .. let's try it countdown style!

    10. Bayless' coming-out party in New Jersey capped by his emphatic dunk in the 4th quarter.
    9. A tie. Roy's game-winning layup vs. New York and Blake's 3-pointer to win in Toronto.
    Both situations had us down by 1 and even though Blake's wasn't at the buzzer he ties with Roy due to the use of the "Jordan-shakes-Russell offensive hand-check" to clear space and get the shot off.
    8. Another tie? Blake's night of 14 1st quarter assists (17 for the game) and Batum blocking Bryant's dunk in our last meeting with the Lakers.
    Batum blocked countless shots no one else could get to and was tasked, as a rookie, with defending the premiere wing scoring threats night in and night out. He deserves recognition for that.
    7 . The Blazer's vindication victory against Boston sans the Roy Wonder and starting 3 rookies.
    Stand-out moments of the game were Oden hip-checking Ray Allen into photographer's row basically saying "We're not your whipping boys Boston". Outlaw's baseline spin move and dunk on Garnett at the end was icing on the cake too.
    6. Ok another tie. (10 isn't enough!) Roy's emphatic dunk on Cheikh Samb and Batum's posterizations of Gasol.
    5. Roy's 52pt outburst vs. Phoenix. The give-and-get from Roy to Blake and back again epitomized the effort which, by the way, broke the 119 point tie with 1 minute to go.
    4 . In honor of all the Spanish Connections this year: Sergio to Rudy for the 180' alley-oop vs. Miami on Nov. 26th and the sick alley-oop reverse layup against Phoenix earlier that month. (cripes, was that another tie??)
    3. Rudy's 5 pts in 2 seconds (watch the replays on YouTube (starting with my site :] )). It should also be mentioned that this sequence was as much, if not more, Sergio's doing as it was Rudy's. First the on-point pass but then his pressure defense on the initial target of the inbounder forcing the long pass Rudy's way.
    2. What the hell, might as well have another tie right?
    Rudy's inbounds pass to Roy for the alley-oop tomahawk jam and Rudy's steal/behind-the-back pass assist to Sergio for the breakaway layup.
    1. And of course, Roy's 30foot buzzer-beating mortar shot against Houston.
    Ironic though - our most memorable moment of the season against the team that ultimately ended ours.

    There you have it - my top 10 (ok 16 or 17) plays of the year! Go Blazers!

    As a bonus, another play I really liked but didn't add to the list (because I couldn't bring myself to weasel in another tie) - this fast-break Rudy-to-Outlaw alley-oop-pass to an airborne Roy for the layup in the super-satisfying blowout of the Suns. ( at 8:30)

    My suggestions are mostly the same as what have already been mentioned but worth more votes:

    -Roy's 52 point game against Phoenix
    -Rudy's in bound pass to Roy's dunk against Golden State
    -Rudy's 5 points in 3 seconds
    -Rudy's nutmeg bounce pass against Sacramento in the preseasonopener should definitely count. Can we count that entire game actually? That game had so much energy and made me so excited for the season
    -Roy's buzzer beater against Houston with .8 seconds left
    -Aldridge's dunk on Dampier
    -Roy's dunk on Samb
    -Oden's dunk off of Roy's miss against Houston in the playoffs
    -Roy's buzzer beater against the Knicks (especially satisfying after watching Nate Robinson hop skip and jump his way to the bench after the way the Knicks finished out the 3rd quarter)
    -The team standing up for themselves and their teammate when Rudy went down thanks to Ariza. And while we're on that, how about Joel Przybilla standing up to anyone-Shaq, Chandler, etc.

    That's all I've got for now.
    I am a fan of being back in the Rose Garden.

    I would have to say that Brandon's .8 second game winner was the best because I was there and it was amazing.

    You guys have got most of the obvious ones on there like the game winners, but make sure to get these ones too:
    Roy's dunk vs. the Clippers
    Bayless' one-handed catch and finish on the alley-oop (late in the season, not sure vs. what team)
    Greg Oden's dunk @ Golden State at the beginning of the season that left the hoop shaking for minutes afterwards
    Sergio to Rudy for the alley-oop reverse jam by Rudy
    Also, not great plays, but great moments-Greg throwing down Ray Allen during the 2nd quarter of the Boston game in Portland, and Joel getting in Shaq's face after he throws the ball at him
