    Who is the greatest Trail Blazer of All-Time? It's a question that stirs debate among fellow BlazerManiacs. Whether its father and son debating old school versus new school or friends bantering back and forth, everyone has their own opinion. But this is where we step in to find an answer to the question above.

    In a 32 player tournament style format, you, the fans, will finally put the argument to rest and declare one former Trail Blazer the best that has ever donned the red, black, and white. Now keep in mind, this bracket only contains retired players. Current and former Trail Blazers still playing in the NBA are doing just that, playing, and their chapters haven't fully been written yet.

    Here's how it will all play out. Every week, there will be two matchups for the fans to vote on. Along with the standard facts and accomplishments about the player, there will also be photos and video to bring the memories back to life. In the end, the player with the most votes after the allotted period of time advances.

    The bracket breaks down into four regions: Broadway, Burnside, Freemont, Steel. Each region is assigned eight seeds numbering one through eight. The number one overall seed can be found in the Broadway region, Clyde Drexler. The other number one seeds are Bill Walton (Burnside), Terry Porter (Freemont) and Maurice Lucas (Steel). To view the entire placement of all the seeds, click on the bracket below. Who are your sleepers? Did any player get snubbed by not making the list of 32? Finally, who do you envision in the Final Four?

    Did anyone get snubbed? Current players. But that's not something we can do anything about.

    Elite eight should be Clyde Drexler, Rasheed Wallace, Maurice Lucas, Geoff Petrie, Kiki Vandeweghe, Cliff Robinson, Terry Porter and Jerome Kersey.

    Final four will be Clyde Drexler, Maurice Lucas, Cliff Robinson, and Jerome Kersey.

    Finals will be Clyde Drexler, and Jerome Kersey

    Greatest Blazer will be Clyde Drexler

    I pick:

    1st round: Drexler, Sabonis, Wallace, Williams - Lucas, Pippen, Duckworth, Petrie - Walton, Vandeweghe, Paxson, Robinson - Porter, Gross, Thompson, Kersey

    2nd Round: Drexler, Williams - Lucas, Duckworth - Walton, Robinson - Porter, Kersey

    3rd Round: Drexler - Lucas - Walton - Porter

    Finals: Drexler - Porter

    Winner: Drexler

    I think Drexler winning will pretty much be unanimous.

    Oh, and Fabricio Oberto got snubbed. That was my guy. I wish they made an Oberto bobblehead.

    Is there any doubt?  Clyde the Glide, hands down!

    Even though there are many players to like in this bracket but none can compare to Clyde whether it be on or off the court!

    This Is a good idea DHawes22 since I wasn't born yet to see the past great Blazers players I started watching the Blazers when I was 7 that when portland got to the finals vs Chicago but from then to now Clyde is my pick but I could change my mind when I see what the others before him did but right now Drexler my guy and he did ease the pain alittle when portland past on Jordan.

    Are they serious?  Drexler hands down.  Mo is a good second, but c'mon...it's all about the GLIDE!

    Drexler is the best Trailblazer ever, with Terry Porter a close second, Bill Walton would be number 1, if it were not for the injury late in the 1978 season. We were on our way to our 2nd championship. Too Bad. Maurice we love you, we miss you, you are the toughest Trailblazer EVER.

    A lot of people don't know the past Blazers like Billy Ray Bates no show for practice then in the fourth he would bomb the 3's and put us back in any game. Calvin Natt was a beast, rebounding and scoring not to mention his great defense. Sabonis could have been #1 if he came over in the late 80's

    Walton, Petrie, Drexler, Wallace, my final four. You can intermix any of these players in the top spot all with arguements as too why they should or should not be there. As a side note Jim Barnett should be there since it was his shot that started "RIP CITY".

    I'm a fan of having healthy cats, too.  I have eight.  :-P



    Anyway, it'll all come down to Mo Lucas vs. Clyde on the Broadway Steel side, with Clyde winning out.  On the Burnside Fremont side, It'll be Bill Walton and Lionel Holilns with Bill winning.  For all the marbles, I'll go with Clyde.



    Much love to all these guys (hey!  How did J.R. Rider get into the mix?  Dump him and put in Rick Adelman, fer cryin' out loud!), my fave of all time is still Arvydas Sabonis.

    I am a fan of Da Vanilla Gorilla, Joel Pryzbilla. He's been the heart and soul of the Blazers for a long time. Come back and retire as a Blazer, Joel!

    #22...no question.  Roy would certainly have a shot at dethroning Clyde, if health were not an issue.  Should Aldridge lead this team to a title before the end of his career, he too would then be a legitimate challenger.
