    With the Trail Blazers launching their We Are Rip City campaign last week, what better way to support the cause other than hopping in the '85 DeLorean and listening to one of the greatest radio voices of all-time?  Here are seven clips for your listening pleasure!

    Audio Download: Rip City BABY!
    Audio Download: RIIIIIPP CIIIITY BABY!
    Audio Download: Rip City Baby! Yes Sir!
    Audio Download: Rip City Anthem
    Audio Download: The Schonz Describes The Origins Of Rip City
    Audio Download: Schonz Radio Call From 1973 Versus Milwaukee

    Even though my youth was nearly 20 years ago, I can still remember Schonely's voice as I'm in the car with my parents describing every play. For whatever reason, I always thought that when he used the phrase "Rainbow Jumper" that it was a three-point jump. Little did I know, he was simply describing the arc of the shot. My favorite Schonz-ism of all-time was when he was say "Holy backboard!"......"Terry Porter for threeeeee! Holy backboard!" You also can't go wrong with "Bingo, bango, bongo." What are your favorite memories of the Schonz or favorite phrases he used?

    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...

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

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

    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.

     

    Thank God they are 19 games over 500.  Mayb...

    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...
