    Time to vote on new match-ups. Today is the 1985-86 vs 1999-00 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.

    1985-86: Overall record: 40-42 (11th in league, 6th in conference, 2nd in division) For only the second time in the decade-long tenure of Coach Jack Ramsay, the Trail Blazers failed to win more games than they lost, finishing at 40-42. Still, they made it into post-season play for the ninth time in ten seasons. But Portland couldn't get past the first round in the playoffs, being eliminated by Denver in four games.

    1999-00: Overall record: 59-23 (2nd in league, 2nd in conference, 2nd in division) Three losses---two of them on the basketball court---clouded an otherwise outstanding season for the Trail Blazers who recorded 59 victories to match their second-best best finish in franchise history. The biggest setback came May 5, just two days before the team opened its semifinal playoff series against Utah, when popular assistant coach Bill Musselman lost a six-month battle with a rare disease, primary systemic amyloidosis. Two weeks earlier, the Blazers lost their regular season finale at home to Denver, 96-95, and failed to post the franchise's second 60-win season. CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team

    99-00 was one of the best teams this franchise has ever had. Although they had no true superstar, the depth on that team was just ridiculous. Our front court consisted of Sheed, Sabas, BG, and Jermaine O'Neal...nasty. It's too bad 12 minutes of bad basketball cost this franchise their 2nd ever NBA championship.

    Portland had Kersey, Drexler, and I think Porter on the 86 team, but they were just too inexperienced to handle Sabonis and Pippen. We had a great mix of youth and vet leadership in 00. A lot of people talk about the meltdown in Game 7, but the turning point in that series was losing both Games 3 and 4 at home..you can't go 1-2 at home and expect to win the series. Anyways, no one is touching this team until maybe the Finals of this bracket. Too good. Too deep.

    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.

    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...
