Portland Trail Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers are considered a darling of the NBA thanks to a successful heritage that includes one championship in 1977 and two more Finals appearances in 1990 and 1992 respectively. From the overachieving youngsters that won that title, to the talentladen underachievers of the 1980s, the All Stars of the 90s and the ‘Jailblazers’ of the early 2000s, Portland have become a team that never quite makes it all the way but often makes it into our hearts.

Despite losing Brandon Roy to early retirement in 2011, a player with some of the greatest potential in a generation, the franchise has continued to draft well and develop players into All-Stars. No matter what, Portland consistently competes in the toughest conference in the NBA.
