    UPDATE: Game Two of the 1992 NBA Finals between the Trail Blazers and Bulls will be this week's Buffalo Wild Wings "Rip City Classics" game. It will air starting at 7 PM at all seven Portland-area Buffalo Wild Wings. See you there!

    The Portland Trail Blazers and corporate partner Buffalo Wild Wings have teamed up to give fans the opportunity to gather and watch classic games from the team’s rich heritage.

    Starting Wednesday, Nov. 9, seven Portland Metro-area Buffalo Wild Wings locations will simultaneously air select Trail Blazers games every Wednesday for six weeks. The games will be voted on by fans each week at starting today, with polls closing on Mondays. The winning game will then be announced on Trail Blazers Courtside on Monday nights. Go here for more information and locations of participating Buffalo Wild Wings.

    For our fourth Rip City Classics, we're looking at some of the greatest NBA Finals games in Trail Blazers history. Portland reached the finals three times since their inception in 1970, facing off against the Philadelphia 76ers, Detroit Pistons, and Chicago Bulls.Althoughthe Trail Blazers only have one championship banner hanging in the rafters of the Rose Garden, each on of those series produced unforgettable moments. So hop in that '85 DeLorean and go back into time to look at some of the greatest NBA Finals games in Rip City history.

    Now it is time for you to decided. You've got four options to choose from and you can vote as many times as you are able for the game you would like to see played in its entirety at seven participating Buffalo Wild Wings. Voting is set to end right before Trail Blazers Courtside airs Monday night at 6 PM.

    One last thing. Fear not if the game you want to see played doesn't win the vote this week. The "second place" videos from the first five weeks will comprise the voting options for the sixth and final Rip City Classic game. Sort of like the wild card race.

    And now, your options for the first game of the Buffalo Wild Wings Rip City Classics. Vote for the game you would most like to see from the following:

    June 07, 1990: Portland Trail Blazers @ Detroit Pistons at The Palace At Auburn Hills

    After losing a heartbreaker to the Pistons in Game One, 105-99, in which Detroit outscored Portland 29-19 in the fourth quarter, the Trail Blazers Blazers bounced back in this instant classic. Lead by Clyde Drexler's game-high 33 points, Portland defeated Detroit 106-105 in thrilling, double-overtime fashion to tie the series up heading back to Rip City. Portland overcame six Bill Laimbeer 3-pointers and became the only team during hte 1990 playoffs to defeat the Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

    May 26, 1977: Portland Trail Blazers @ Philadelphia 76ers at The Spectrum
    Throw the scoreboard and statistics out the window for this contest. Philadelphia had already taken Game One, 107-101 and was leading comfortably late into Game Two before The Enforcer, Maurice Lucas, changed the entire complexion of the series by squaring off with 76ers forward Darryl Dawkins after Dawkins had thrown a punch at Mo's teammate Bobby Gross. "You need a rugged, we're-not-going-to-take-any-nonsense personality on a team. It's important for your team to let it be known that you will not be pushed around, will not be intimidated." - Jack Ramsay.

    June 05, 1992: Portland Trail Blazers @ Chicago Bulls at Chicago Stadium
    Despite getting embarrassed in Game One by 33 points, withstanding Michael Jordan's 39 points in Game Two, and having Clyde Drexler foul out late in the fourth quarter with the Trail Blazers behind by eight, everyone rallied around one another and Portland pulled out Game Two, 115-104, in overtime to tie up the series. Danny Ainge sparked the offense off the bench, scoring 17 while Buck Williams manned the paint, posting a double-double (19 points, 14 rebounds).

    June 05, 1977: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Philadelphia 76ers at Memorial Coliseum

    Bill Walton had a game for the ages (20 points, 24 rebounds, 7 assists, 8 blocks, 1 steal) as the Trail Blazers defeated the Philadelphia 76ers, 109-107 to claim their one and only NBA Championship. Dr. J put up 40 of his own, but along with Walton's brilliance, the Trail Blazers had four others in double-figures and controlled the glass to the tune of a 55-44 rebound advantage.

    That comeback against Chicago was awesome. Down 8 with Drexler fouled out and we still forced OT? And once we got into OT, we smoked them.

    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...
