    Was that when Richard Washington was there. Dick Gray was the coach right. He was my PE teacher. I walked the Halls when AC Green was there. Then i transfered to Ft. Vancouver.

    "Blinded By The Light" just brought back a big time memory. I remember going up to MT. Hood with my dad for Skiing lessons, he had a fairly new MG and chains on the tires. I remember riding up the Mountain on the way to the Lodge and that song came on. It was awesome

    A bit before my time. I first followed the team in elementary school when we went to the finals against the Pistons. Been a die hard fan ever since. Underappreciated how lucky it was to have those Clyde teams as it was the only Blazers team I ever rooted for and so I just assumed thats what you often get. Was able to appreciate the 99 team and WCF team much more. Never imagined we would be irrelevant to the title in all the years since then.

    New expansion franchise - must have been very exciting
    Decade later the team has a title - amazing and very jealous of all of you that witnessed it, congrats!
    Decade later the team is contending again with Drexler
    Decade later the team is contending with trader Bob's moves

    2.5 Decades since and nothing but a bunch of mediocrity
    ? Decades until the Blazers contend again
