    I've lived in Oregon for 9 years now, been a Blazer fan for a little over that long. And I've realized, it's about time I know their full background. I know bits and pieces but I wanna know the full history...

    Does anyone know of a link for highlights of each season? A movie/dvd? A good book on the history of the Blazers? etc?

    Alright, hilarious. As soon as I wrote this... I added the facebook fan shop app, and there it was. The ad for the history of the Trail Blazers by Wayne Thompson, "BlazerMania".

    Haha, oh well... I'll still take recommendations.

    There is a DVD called "Mania" that is pretty good. It goes over their entire history up til 08. The only thing I don't like about that is that it doesn't talk too much about their 1999-2000 era where they went to back to back WCF's. It pretty much lumps it in with the JailBlazer days, which wasn't really the case. Brian Grant, Steve Smith, Pippen, Sheed, etc. It's around for sale online and some places around Portland.

    Also, there is a VHS out there called Running Down a Dream that is from the 1990-91 season, which was very bittersweet. It's pretty much impossible to find, but it's on youtube. It's really fun to watch. I was a baby that season, but growing up I watched that tape all the time. It's what got me into basketball.

    There is a documentary called Fastbreak also about the Championship team. It's kind of ...unique.

    There are 3 video yearbooks: 89-90, 90-91, 91-92 that are amazing

    Here's the amazon link to those: Blazer Videos

    There were also two, detailed books about the 90-91 season and the 91-92 season.

    The 91 book was called a Long, Hot Winter and it was written by then-coach Rick Adleman as he takes the reader behind the scenes of that record-setting season.

    Powell's Link: Long, Hot Winter

    The 92 book is longer as it was written by two Blazer beatwriters. It gave an inside look at how everything shook out back then. Did you know we were this close to landing Charles Barkley during that season?

    Powell's Link: Against The World


    I own Blazermania and suggest picking that one up as well. It has some never before seen photos and takes you from day 1 up until the beginning of last season. It's definitely a well-put together book. And the Fan Shop's price of 35$ is cheaper than any other place I've seen it listed.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    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...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
