Portland Trail Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers are the only sports team (from the top four professional leagues) in the city of Portland, Oregon, meaning that the franchise has enjoyed strong local support since it joined the NBA in 1970, setting a record for consecutive sellouts (814) that has never been matched by any other NBA team. The team did not exactly live up to their name right away, blazing no trails into the postseason during their first six seasons. 1977 marked the most dramatic of turnarounds, when the Blazers not only qualified for their first playoff appearance but made their way right through to the NBA Finals where MVP Bill Walton led them to a 4-2 series defeat of the Philadelphia 76ers. To this date, it remains Portland’s only NBA championship. The following decades saw the Blazers make the playoffs in an astonishing 25 out of 26 seasons along with two more appearances in the NBA Finals in 1990 when they lost 4-1 to the Detroit Pistons and 1992 when they fell 4-2 to Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls. Through it all, the team was led by the supremely-talented Clyde “the Glide” Drexler who played 11 seasons for the Blazers and for many fans still remains the most memorable face of Portland basketball. In the post-Drexler years, the team continued to compete, losing one particularly memorable bout in the 2000 Western Conference Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers after storming back from 3-1 down to force a Game Seven. As the 2000s moved on, the Blazers tailed off somewhat, though they did get through to the Conference Finals in 2019. The past two seasons have been among their most dismal in recent history, with the team missing out on the playoffs with consecutive 13th-place finishes in the Western Conference. Many Portland Trail Blazers fans probably spend more time these days thinking of better times in the past, but there is always the hope that their team, buoyed by talents like Deandre Ayton, Jerami Grant, and Malcolm Brogdon, can catch fire again in 2023-24.

Portland Trail Blazers Rivalries

The Portland Trail Blazers once had a regional Pacific Northwest rivalry with the Seattle SuperSonics known as the I-5 Rivalry (due to the freeway connecting the two coastal cities). This rivalry disappeared in 2008 when the Sonics relocated to Oklahoma and became the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Trail Blazers also have a fierce rivalry with the Los Angeles Lakers stemming from their Pacific Division battles in the 1970s and 1980s, first between Bill Walton and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar followed by Clyde Drexler against Magic Johnson. In 2000, the Blazers, led by Rasheed Wallace, had one of their most promising playoff runs ever quashed by Shaq, Kobe, & Co. in Game Seven of the Western Conference Finals. With the Blazers slipping into the basement of the league in recent years, some of the sting has perhaps gone out of the rivalry, though for hardcore Portland Trail Blazers fans, nothing could be sweeter than a victory over their rivals from Los Angeles! 

Are Portland Trail Blazers basketball games exciting?

In contrast to Portland’s incessantly rainy weather, the atmosphere inside Moda Center for Portland Trail Blazers is always warm and welcoming (except for opposition teams) with fans decked out in the team’s colors of red, white, and black. Despite not always being the most successful team on the court, the Blazers have long been one of the most popular in the NBA among local fans, setting a record for consecutive sellouts (814) that will probably never be broken. “Blazermania” is how the phenomenon is described in Portland and any visitor who experiences this passion will soon be swept up in the moment and join the roar of the crowd.
