    1989-90: Overall record: 59-23 (tie, 2nd in league, 2nd in conference, 2nd in division)
    Portland capped a stellar season by winning the Western Conference championship and taking on the defending champion Detroit Pistons in the NBA Finals. The Trail Blazers compiled the league's second best record, 59-23, including a 24-17 road mark. CONTINUE READING/Become a fan of this team



    1991-92: Overall record: 57-25 (tie, 2nd in league, 1st in conference)
    For the second time in three years and the third time in franchise history, the Trail Blazers were locked in a June battle for the world championship, this time against defending champion Chicago. Ultimately, Michael Jordan and the Bulls prevailed but not before Portland took them to The Finals series' sixth game in Chicago Stadium. The Blazers finished the regular season with the West's best record, 57-25, and tied for the second most wins overall. CONTINUE READING/Become a fan of this team

    Probably the hardest vote for me so far. I went with 92 by the slimmest of margins. They took a better Chicago team, compared to the Pistons, to a longer, more compelling series (outside of the Game 1 debacle). I think Buck and Mercy were better back in 1990, Porter maybe a little better in 92, Duck stronger in 90, but the push for me was Clyde. This was his shining moment as a player. Runner up to the MVP, 1st Team All-NBA..really the pinnacle of his career.

    I went with the 1990 squad because their path to the Finals was more impressive in my opinion, winning a 7-game series over the Spurs without Duckworth for the first 6 contests and winning game 6 in Phoenix in cold-blooded fashion. They should have won both in Detroit while the 92 team got steamrolled in Game 1. It's a shame Portland lost all 3 at home to Detroit, but they were all down to the wire and could have gone either way. I think the 92 team just showed they lost a step from the prior two years, sans Clyde.

    I voted for  91-92 to win... more veteran and proven team. Uncle Cliffy more experienced. Close match-up, but the fact that 89-90 was the first time they went to the Finals ,the 91-92 was tested from the previous two years.

    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...
