RISE WITH US!
RISE WITH US!
A familiar chant from the fans of the Portland Trailblazers. For the past 2 seasons this has been the chant or the words that you can see from a fan holding a sign board.
But is it still the chant? Is the team that has been unbelievable this past 2 seasons gone? Are we still gonna see them in the post-season?
Well, let the team speak for itself. The boys from Oregon are still fighting for their spot in the western conference. They are now the 8th team in the conference. 13 games behind the leader of the pack. 2 behind the 7th seeded. Good thing they are still in the first half of the season, and they can still make a comeback anytime soon.
Even-though the team is experiencing a setback because of all this injuries, that includes Brandon Roy and Greg Oden, they still managed to make an eight game home winning-streak.
They have found their strength from the fans. The rose garden is still ROCKIN'! No matter what game, what team against, its still a garden full of faithful and loving fans. Its the best arena to watch the best team in the NBA.
In the absence of B-Roy, everyone thought that there is no one to cheer. Well, think again, there are still players that are playing GREAT basketball. Players like, LaMarcus Aldridge. He is producing a lot. A double-double guy. Plus, he is rocking the rim and using his length. There is also players like Wesley Matthews and Rudy Fernandez. Who are also contributing a lot for the team.
With or without an all-star like Brandon Roy, the Rose Garden still is a house of the blazers fans. The Rose Garden has sold consecutive sell-outs. Reminding you that the fans are still proud of the team. No matter what seed the team is in.
Every player wants to play in a arena that is full of supportive fans. Fans like the one Portland has. A fan like me and everyone in this Trailblazers fan site. Win or lose, in ups and downs, rain or shine, we still are a fan of this ball club.
Reaching the playoffs still is a good payback for the fans from the team. Seeing the team make it through a lot of challenges is the best gift for the fans.
I know that if only Brandon and Greg were here to help, it won't be that difficult to reach the playoffs and even escape from the first round. But, I still believe that LaMarcus can carry the team. Together with Wes, Rudy and Dre. We are still proud of what the team has done.
Make us even more proud by reaching the playoffs or even escape from the first round. Hope to see you in the post-season.
FANS PROUD OF THIS TEAM.
