    Time to vote on new match-ups. Today is the 1979-80 vs 1971-72 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.

    1979-80: Overall record: 38-44 (13th in league, 6th in conference, 4th in division) New faces came on the scene, among them Calvin Natt, Kermit Washington, Kevin Kunnert, Jim Paxson and Billy Ray Bates. Gone were three players who had big roles in the 1977 championship run---Bill Walton, Maurice Lucas and Lionel Hollins. CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team



    1971-72: Overall record: 18-64 (17th in league, 9th in conference, 5th in division) Under new head coach Jack McCloskey, the Blazers struggled to a 21-61 finish and won just 13 times at home. But Portland, with two of the league's top-10 scorers (Geoff Petrie, 24.9 ppg, and Sidney Wicks, 23.8 ppg) providing the punch, played an upbeat, fastbreak brand of basketball that helped boost home attendance by more than 1,000 a game over the previous season.

    Got to go with 79-80. They won 20 more games, had Paxon and Billy Ray Bates..I think their athleticism would have been too much for the 71-72 squad who still had a lot of the expansion players on the roster.

    Billy Ray Bates puts them over the top. Plus, the 1971 team won 18 games. Sorry, but there is NO way they deserve to get into the second round.

    The only good thing about that 71-72 was that I could sit anywhere I wanted in the memorial coliseum! LOL Seriously though, the downfall was having Petrie and Wicks on the same team. Even though both were great, it was just those two providing our offence and nobody else getting involved...and when they had a bad night (Wicks or Petrie) it was usually a blowout by our opposition. It was evident to me even at an early age that one of them would have to go soon and get a few well rounded players in exchange. This team definatley lose's to the 79-80 boys.

    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.

    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...
