    1987-88:Overall record: 53-29 (tie, 5th in league; tie, 3rd in conference; 2nd in division )
    The Trail Blazers rattled off two eight-game winning streaks during the season then captured 10 of their last 13 contests to post a 53-29 record for the year, second only to the 58-years earlier by the 1977-78 team. The 53 victories equaled the NBA's fifth highest total for the year.CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team



    1977-78: Overall record: 58-24 (1st in league, 1st in conference, 1st in division)
    Through the first 60 games, the defending NBA champions were making prognosticators look good. Before the season started, they labeled the1977-78 Blazers the "team of destiny." Coach Jack Ramsay's club appeared to be just that, dominating the league for the first four months.CONTINUE READING/Become of fan of this team

    The 78 team is better, but Walton was injured for the rest of the season so I have to assume he can't play in a hypothetical matchup between these teams, so 88 wins by default in my book.

    I voted for the 78 team because they were just as good as the title winning team the year before, only injuries bit them hard. It seems like Portland gets these really elite teams and everything falls perfectly in place to reach that status level, yet when we need to get over the hump, there is that piece to the puzzle missing somewhere.

    Tough decision on this one.
    Had to go with the 77-78 team.
    They were at the top of the league until the injury bug changed things.

    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...
