    Who do you think would win?
    1974-75 (38-44) (10)
    1970-71 (29-52) (3)
    Time to vote on new match-ups. Today is the 1974-75 vs 1970-71 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.

    1974-75: Overall record: 38-44 (12th in league, tie, 6th in conference, 3rd in division) Future Hall of Famer Lenny Wilkens took over the coaching reigns and guided the Trail Blazers to a 38 -44 finish, the best in the young franchise's first five seasons and just three victories shy of earning the club's first playoff appearance. The Blazers, 13 games under .500 on February 23 (24-37), came on strong to win 14 of their last 21 and just miss a post-season berth. CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team

    1970-71: Overall record: 29-52 (15th in league, 9th in conference, 5th in division) The Trail Blazers inaugural season was far more exciting for fans than the club's 29-52 finish indicates. The record was the best of the three 1970 NBA expansion teams (Buffalo was 22-60 and Cleveland 15-67) and was the second-best ever by a first-year franchise. Plenty of action was provided at both ends of the floor: Coach Rolland Todd's club had the league's fourth most productive offense, averaging 115.5 points a game behind only the world champion Milwaukee Bucks, Boston and Cincinnati, but the Blazers were dead last in points allowed, giving up 120.0 per contest.

    For nothing other than sentimental purposes, how can you not vote for the original Trail Blazers? Plus, 29 wins in an expansion season with huge wins over NBA powerhouses is very impressive.

    I would LOVE to agree with you and say our beloved 70-71 team, however in the year Wilkens came in we had alot better rounded out team and the scoring was better distributed. We had JJ, Rick, and of course Lloyd Neal. I actually loved watching this team play, but once again we all knew one of the big stars had to go and sacrafice that for more team players. They would have won many more games that year had they played better defence and commited less fouls. I remember being so mad at Greg Smith all the time because whenever he came into a game you could always count on him picking up 2 fouls before he hit the bench again. Aggresive play is good, but hacking away is not. LOL

    Got go with the 74-75 team on this one :-)

    peace out,

    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...
