    1976-77: Overall record: 49-33 (tie, 4th in league, 3rd in conference, 2nd in division)
    Blazermania is born. The Trail Blazers crowned a storybook season by besting favored Philadelphia to win the NBA Championship, a first-ever world title for Portland. The capper came June 5 in Memorial Coliseum when Coach Jack Ramsay's club pulled out a 109-107 thriller in the sixth and deciding game. The Blazers became only the second team in NBA history to go all the way in their first trip to the playoffs. CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team



    2002-03: Overall record: 50-32 (tie, 5th in league; tie, 5th in conference; tie, 2nd in division)
    A slow start morphed into a big-time run, leading to a 21st consecutive playoff berth. Through the first 16 games, the Blazers were just 7-9 and only 5-4 at home. But then during a torrid two-month run leading up to the All-Star break, Portland was the hottest commodity in the league, winning 22 of 27 games.CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team

    I went with 77, but this game would be "Closer than the experts think". The 03 team had size and athleticism to bang with Lucas and Walton. Sheed, Sabas, and Z-Bo were clicking towards the end of the season and Pip playing at point guard would have caused problems for the 77 team, but in the end, the Champs were clicking on even higher cylinders.

    I have to disagree. While the talent levels are close, the 77 team had "it". Chemistry is an intangible asset that will show up on the scoreboard at games end. They were the champs for a reason, while the the 03 team couldn't even get out of the first round.

    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...
