    1973-74 (21-61) (0)
    Time to vote on new match-ups. Today is the 2007-08 vs 1973-74 teams. Vote on who you think would win AND tell us why you voted that way. You might be able to sway some of your fellow Blazermaniacs to vote with you.

    2007-08: Overall record: 41-41 (tie 15th in league, 10th in conference, 3rd in division) With a nine-game improvement from the season prior, the 2007-08 Trail Blazers posted a 41-41 record, marking the first time Portland finished the regular season at .500 or better since 2003-04. The league's youngest team ran off 13 straight wins in December, the second-longest winning stretch in franchise history. CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team

    1973-74: Overall record: 27-55 (16th in league, 9th in conference, 5th in division) The Blazers, in their fourth NBA season, improved by six games in the win column over the previous campaign but were still near the bottom of the league with a 27-55 record. Portland's one-two scoring punch of Geoff Petrie and Sidney Wicks added some luster to the season along with third-year guard-forward Larry Steele, who became the club's first NBA statistical leader.

    07-08 annihilates 73-74. I am a bit biased, but 07-08 was the first year as being a season ticket holder, but again, look at the records..40+ wins v. 20+ wins..not a tough call.
    13 game winning streak...Travis going Mr. 4th Quarter on everyone..Roy making his first All-Star appearance..the strength and athleticism would be too much for the boys in the 70's to handle.

    This is about as easy as they get, and one of the anomalies of the bracket. A 41-41 record in 1972-73 would have been good enough for 9th in the NBA. Of course, there were only 17 teams back then, but still.

    Even if both these teams had the same record, the 13 game winning streak the 07-08 team put together trumps anything the 72-73 team did.

    2007-08 in a landslide.

    07-08. No one in the 70's could hang with BRoy. We were too deep, young, and didn't know we weren't supposed to be that good.
    This one could end up being a SHUTOUT!

    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...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
