I have always loved the Portland TrailBlazers. I have been a fan since they came into the league. I still remember right after they won the championship in 1977 - downtown - everybody screaming and horns honking. We loved our Blazers. We loved our team who played their guts out to win the championship for Portland. If I live to be 100 I will never forget that day - and watching the last few seconds and those words on CBS "It's all over"!
Bill Walton felt the same way. He eventually made it to Boston and won a championship there. But he admitted that it was his championship in Portland that he will be the most fond of.
I can still name every player of that championship team. I can still tell you the final score of every game against Philadelphia in the finals.
This was a special time - and a special team. I just hope one day they win another championship. And I still remember the words of Bill Schonely who said after the game (in reference to how he could have been a commentator for the Seattle Mariners)- "Who are the Seattle Mariners"?
