    Dan I think you missed 3 things. The Rudy play against Charlotte here at home where he stole the ball and passed it behind his back around a defender all in one motion, that was a great play. The other 2, Kevin Duckworth's Memorial (sad but great) and Terry Porter's jersey retirement.
    I am a fan of this team. Here's to hoping for a healthy season!!!

    Very surprised two plays did not make the cut
    -Travis' game-winner @ Memphis
    -Bayless Alley-Oop from Rudy against the Thunder

    guess it was that good of a year!

    No matter how you cut it, there will always be something that gets left out. As far as Ducky's memorial, I think that is one thing I bet we all would have rather not needed to do. Personally, I would rather still have Ducky around, so to put it on the top 10 moments would seem a little off color. That's just my opinion. The jersey retirement could have been put on the preliminary list, and people would have voted for it, but I doubt enough people would vote for it to make the final list over these other moments. It would be on the list strictly out of respect for Terry. The Rudy play would have been in my top 10 as well, but again, I am not sure enough people would have voted for it over some of these other highlights. Some things just need to get cut for the integrity of the list. It's like Ralph Nadar running for President knowing he can't actually win. Sure people would vote for him, but the people that would vote for him takes votes away from the Democratic party resulting in Republicans getting elected. Not saying anything negative about either party, just a fact of Nadar running for Pres.

    The Travis Outlaw game winner @ Memphis happened in the 07-08 season not the 08-09 season.

    How come nobody's voted for the Sacramento preseason game? Oden dunked on Hawes a couple times. That was awesome! But I had to go with Roy's 33 foot swish against the Rockets. That was one of the most terrific shots in Blazer history.

    Travis had a "game-winner" against Memphis this year too. Not as dramatic as there was still 13 seconds on the clock, but still a great, tough shot.

    How about the play that didn't happen... Nic's third attempt at posterizing Pau Gasol? He *almost* announced his presence with authority. He'll be a good player for us for years to come.

    I gotta go with B-Roy's 52 points against the Suns. It was on national TV and showed the entire country that this team was for real and that Brandon is a legit superstar in this league.
    I am a fan of Rudy's "OK" sign after dropping a bomb!

    It's hard not to pick the preseason game, but Brandon's 3 was insane!

    I think the Brandon Roy buzzerbeater against Houston is better than the one Lebron James made against Orlando the other day ! Brandons was a more difficult shot from my point of view ! It was a desperation shot !
    With a lot less time on the clock !

    Brandon's was defended a lot better too. If you look, Hedo goes off to LeBron's side where B-Roy was defended to the face. The only case you can make for LeBron's in comparisson is that it was a playoff game. I totally agree that Brandon's was much better.

    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...
