    Who do you think would win?
    1997-98 (46-36) (6)
    1996-97 (49-33) (2)
    Time to vote on new match-ups. Today is the 1997-98 vs 1996-97 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.

    1997-98: Overall record: 46-36 (12th in league, 6th in conference,)
    A head coaching change and a blockbuster trade headlined a season in which the Blazers posted their ninth straight winning season and their 19th in the last 22 years. Mike Dunleavy, taking over the reigns from P.J. Carlesimo, guided Portland to a 46-36 regular season record and its 16th consecutive trip to the playoffs, the longest current streak in the NBA.

    1996-97: Overall record: 49-33 (11th in league, 5th in conference)
    For the second year in a row, Coach P.J. Carlesimo's club came on strong in the final two months of the season to nail down a playoff berth, this time the fifth seed in the West. Only a game above.500 going into the last day of February, the Blazers proceeded to go on an 11-game winning streak, the second longest in club history, and finished the season by taking 20 of their last 25 games.

    Man, this one is a crapshoot. I bet if these teams played 100 times, it would be awfully close with about each team winning 50 times.
    I'll go with 98 simply because Jermaine was a year older, Sabas and Sheed had an extra year in our system, Damon was better than Kenny Anderson who was on the decline, and we had added Brian Grant.
    Also, I think Dunleavy was a much better coach than PJ and the 98 team was preparing for a WCF run the following years. That team really set the groundwork for our WCF runs the following seasons and put the Blazers back on the map.

    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...
