    1999-00: Overall record: 59-23 (2nd in league, 2nd in conference, 2nd in division)
    Three losses---two of them on the basketball court---clouded an otherwise outstanding season for the Trail Blazers who recorded 59 victories to match their second-best best finish in franchise history. The biggest setback came May 5, just two days before the team opened its semifinal playoff series against Utah, when popular assistant coach Bill Musselman lost a six-month battle with a rare disease, primary systemic amyloidosis. Two weeks earlier, the Blazers lost their regular season finale at home to Denver, 96-95, and failed to post the franchise's second 60-win season. CONTINUE READING/Become a fan of this team

    1990-91: Overall record: 63-19 (1st in league)
    The Trail Blazers picked up where they left off the previous season when they were in the NBA Finals and captured world-wide basketball attention. They posted the league's best record, 63-19, the most wins ever by the franchise. They opened by winning their first 11 games and 19 of their first 20. They took their first eight away from home, extending a road winning streak over two seasons to 12 which equaled the second longest in NBA history. CONTINUE READING/Become a fan of this team

    I was very tempted to go with the 2000 team, because they had the Lakers beat but gave them the game, while the 91 team were completely outplayed, but in the end, I felt the team as a whole was much more complete in 91. Porter and Drexler gives Portland a remarkable advantage in the backcourt, Buck could D up Sheed, while the Pippen-Kersey head-to-head would be excellent to watch. Bottom line is Portland had a more heady team in 91, which showed in their heart how they fought back to reach the Finals the following year while the 00 team imploded amongst one another.

    63 wins, 3 all-stars, and quite possibly one of the greatest teams to never win an NBA title. 99-00 got lucky getting past the Champs, but their luck runs out here. Rasheed, the '00's best player, is easily susceptible to mind games and I think Buck would rattle him up big time. If Buck could D up arguably the greatest PF of All-Time in Karl Malone both in 91 and 82, then he'd have a cake walk with Sheed. Also, I could see TP just drain 3's all day long over the top of Mighty Mouse while Drexler would work the much older Steve Smith all over the court.

    That is a great match-up... but I don't think 99-00 could handle 90-91 defensively. TP would tear up Damon and I don't think an older Scottie could handle Clyde in his prime. Arvydas is the only upgrade even though Duck was an All-Star... I think Arvydas would have been craftier. Buck Williams would have shut 'Sheed down. In fact, now that I'm thinking of this... I don't think it would be a close series. 5 games probably.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    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...
