    Time to vote on new match-ups. Today is the 1984-85 vs 1978-79 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.

    1984-85: Overall record: 42-40 (tie, 9th in league, 5th in conference, 2nd in division) Biggest news of the 1984-85 season was the blockbuster trade that took place during the summer. To acquire Kiki Vandeweghe, the NBA's No. 3 scorer the previous season with a 29.4 ppg average, the Blazers sent to Denver Calvin Natt, Lafayette Lever and Wayne Cooper plus two draft choices.

    1978-79: Overall record: 45-37 (10th in league, 6th in conference, 4th in division) Two of top front-court performers were onlookers for most of the season while two rookies stepped forward as the Blazers made it into post-season action for the third straight year. Bill Walton, 1977-78 league MVP, missed the entire campaign with an ankle injury, and Lloyd Neal, Mr. Reliable in the paint for Portland for seven seasons, played just four games before going to the sidelines for good with ailing knees. He retired at the end of the season. CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team

    I just don't think 79 would be able to win with Walton out injured. The 85 team is my pick, because they had scoring threats galore in Drexler and Kiki. Also, they picked up Kersey and Bowie in the draft and even though Bowie was a bust, he was 3rd in the league in blocks his rookie year which gave the 85 team an advantage over the 79 team without Bill Walton manning the middle.

    Yea, this question becomes pretty moot when you consider the best player in either matchup is done with an ankle injury. Although the 79 team managed to have a better record, I just think 85 would have too much firepower for 79 to contain, even with an All-Star in Maurice Lucas.

    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...
