    Is it that or the fact that they have such a shitty PR image with all of the thugs that have passed through that locker room. Those fans were supporting some pretty average teams up there for a while (that shitbrick 88-89 team that resulted in a fired Mike Shuler, a hired Rick Adelman and a trade for Buck Williams comes to mind immediately).

    True, but they started making more crazy decisions after that loss. Taking chances on troubled players (Ruben Patterson, every draft pick) with the hopes of them becoming good citizens.

    I know some Blazers fans who are re-energized by the moves Portland made this past draft. Now, they wish Paul Allen would shut up about the lease, lack of money, etc. Otherwise, Blazers fans are typically eager to latch on to any sort of hope and ride it for what it's worth.

    The Rose Garden deserves an NBA franchise. At the end of the day, the people there know it, too. They've just endured some lean years after the Drexler glory days.

    I believe they sold out every single game from 1977-78 until the 2001-2002 season -- something like 1,500 straight games.

    Then, they decided to embark upon a mission to rehabilitate every maladjusted punk in the league, and now they draw 7,000 fans a game.
