Sports Team
    (1970- )
    Located in Portland, Oregon
    Won one NBA championship (1977)
    Nine retired numbers: Larry Weinberg's #1 (Owner), Dave Twardzik's #13, Larry Steele's #15, Maurice Lucas' #20, Clyde Drexler's #22, Bill Walton's #32, Lloyd Neal's #36, Geoff Petrie's #45, and Jack Ramsay #77 (Coach)
    Other former and current players include Rasheed Wallace, Arvydas Sabonis, Damon Stoudamire, and Zach Randolph
    Due to several high-profile run-ins with the law, they have recently been called the 'Jail-blazers.'
    Bill Walton looked like a hairy hippie when he was with the Blazers (though he's been a hippie his entire life.)
    They made the infamous mistake of drafting often-injured Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan.
    They lost 124-59 to the Pacers, the first time a losing team's score was doubled (1998).
    They blew a huge fourth-quarter lead during Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals against the Lakers (2000).
    Because of that, then-general manager Bob Whitsitt got a bunch of star players for the team, which ruined team chemistry.
    That peaked when Rasheed Wallace threw a towel at Arvydas Sabonis.
    Their name reflects the historic impact of the Oregon Trail.
    They have been one of the more consistently excellent franchises in the NBA, as their 2003-04 team was only the second of their teams to not make the playoffs since 1977.
    They were the last team to win the NBA title after not previously winning a playoff series.
    They have shed most of their 'Jail-blazer' reputation as they traded away their most troublesome players.
