    What this team has done since it’s starting center went down is amazing. Very happy Blazer fan here.

    Not trying to divide anyone. Those people are the ones that divided themself with their comments and lack of support. Don't blame me for that.

    I have supported this team from the very beginning and loving what they have accomplished this year.

    Me too, I've doubted quite a few times but continuing to watch has been so worth it. This season has had more ups and downs than just about any season I can remember and it's amazing watching this team continue to fight. Only two disappointing games in months (@Detroit and Game 5 vs Denver), and every other game they've battled hard win or lose. Even Stotts is starting to make me come around.

    What's the significance in their hand signs?



    Everyone is doing it

    It's, "I love you", in sign language.

    There are 2 ways to approach this.

    A) Claim the Blazers were favorites and disparage anybody who disagreed.

    B) Admit the Blazers were underdogs and relish their upset victory.

    I am part group B. If you want to call me a bad fan because of that...go take a flying leap. This condescending crap needs to stop.

    Actually, that looks more correct with the raised pointer finger.

    Agree, although a little hang loose is probably a good idea.

    I might be wrong, I'm not super up to date on signs, but in American sign language that's what was taught to me when I had to learn sign language to communicate with disabled people.

    The blazers were the underdogs. They were the 3rd seed.

    That means you were never around in 1977.

    Game 7 on the road, on 21% of road teams have won the series. Blazers Win!!!

    Much smaller % come back from 3-2 to do it.

    Coming back from 17 down in a game 7 has never been done.

    I could take out STARTING CENTER from your post and put SISTER and it would work perfectly! #BAM

    I was in a good mood but now you've made me feel like bitching about something, I dunno, anything.
