    First post, been a fan since I can remember. Some of my earliest Blazers memories are listening to Bill Schonley's calls on the radio with players like Fat Lever, Darnell Valentine, Jim Paxon, Wayne Cooper and Calvin Natt before half those guys got traded for Kiki Vandeweghe.

    My favorite all time Blazer is Buck Williams. He tipped the scales for those early 90's teams from a good team, to a legitimate contender when he arrived.

    Favorite Current Blazer is Dame, no question, and he's quickly rising to my all time favorite status.

    Favorite Blazers moment, was watching game 5 of the 2000 Western Conference Finals in Seau's Restaurant in San Diego surrounded by Laker fans who thought they were going to wrap the series up. My least favorite moment was watching game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference Finals in Seau's surrounded by Laker fans who, going into the 4th quarter thought they were done. That 4th Quarter scarred me for life.

    Been a Blazer fan since 1997.

    Favorite current Trailblazer: CJ. He's an intelligent guy that can impact any game.

    Favorite Blazer of all time: Brian Grant

    Favorite Blazer moment: Dame with 0.9 is probably the most blown away I've ever been. In my life.

    Thanks for being cool, all my fellow sports fans!

    Were they reading our list of NBA coaches we came up with yesterday? I swear. It's always the same few guys. It's worse than European football.

    Been a Blazer fan since around 1978, that's the year I went to my first Blazer game. Shortly thereafter my dad got us season tickets and we had them until the year that they moved into the Rose Garden. I can't say I have an all time favorite player, probably a few favorites... Jerome, Billy Ray, Clyde, Broy... I don't think I could pick 1! Favorite moment was maybe being in the building for the Broy comeback game against Dallas a few years back in the playoffs. I get goosebumps when I think about that game. Go Blazers!

    I'm a big Brian Grant and Sabonis fan. And as for the Dame .9 shot, I was watching the game by myself in my living room and jumping up and down. It was pretty incredible. The last few minutes of that game were such a roller coaster.

    Fan since early 80's, I would listen to almost every game on the radio with my parents. A lot of times I would take stats and compare them to the boxscore the next day, or re-enact the game call on my nerf hoop.
    I was a huge Jim Paxson fan early on, then Clyde, and now how could you not love Dame? Even though the current roster has only been together for a little over a year, it's rapidly becoming one of my favorite blazer squads of all time!
    One moment that sticks out is the '99 playoffs when Brian Grant got in Karl Malone's face. I was camping with friends, listening on the radio and it got us all pumped up. D. Lillard beating the Houston Rockets with that 0.9 second last heave was epic too. Watched that over and over 100 times.

    Welcome! All good stuff too! What I really liked was that eventually Grant and Malone became friends, and have gone fishing together. Pretty cool....

    Blazer fan from the beginning. Favorite player is Damian Lillard. I believe he will be our greatest player. Favorite Blazer moment? Toss up. Sweeping the fucking Lakers, winning the 77 title.

    Been a Blazer fan since the first day tickets went on sale in 1970 which is when we bought our season tickets. Had them ever since.

    All time favorite player is Bill Walton.

    Favorite moment is hard to choose. Love the buzzer on the game where Portland won the championship series. Love the famous buzzer beater shot by Brandon Roy. Who can forget the shot by Lillard that won both the game and the series with Houston and where he uttered the now famous words 'RIP CITY'.

    Since before all of you were born because I am old as dirt. Favorite of all time is Jerome Kersey. Witnessing the Sixers-Blazers, Bulls-Blazers and Pistons-Blazers series (moments). I really hated Laimbeir. s-l225.jpg <Now that's Old School
