Portland Trail Blazers History

The Portland Trail Blazers entered the NBA in 1970. The Trail Blazers struggled in the early years of their existence and failed to qualify for the playoffs in 1977. Since that time they have been regular playoff qualifiers with their twenty-one straight appearances from 1983 to 2003 the second longest streak in NBA history. Portland turned their first ever playoff appearance into an NBA Championship by defeating the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA Finals. Despite being regular playoff qualifiers it took the Trail Blazers until 1990 to qualify for the NBA Finals again losing to the Detroit Pistons before going down to the Chicago Bulls in 1992. After their amazing playoff streak ended in 2003 the franchise struggled for a number of seasons and didn't return to the playoffs until 2009. The Trail Blazers have a very consistent roster and are always a chance to qualify for the playoffs.

Portland Trail Blazers Star Player: LaMarcus Aldridge

LaMarcus Aldridge was selected with the second overall pick of the 2006 NBA draft by the Chicago Bulls and was immediately traded to the Portland Trail Blazers. Aldridge had a quiet rookie season but improved significantly in his sophomore season finishing third in the voting for the NBA Most Improved Player Award. Aldridge has continued to develop nicely and is now considered one of the leading power forwards in the NBA. Aldridge had a strong season during the 2011/2012 NBA schedule and received a late call-up to the Western Conference All-Star team. He also made the All-Star team the following two years. Aldridge is a very talented player who will be hoping to lead the Trail Blazers to the NBA playoffs once more this season after successfully doing so in 2013/2014 after a three year absence.

Portland Trail Blazers Star From the Past: Clyde Drexler

Clyde Drexler was selected with the fourteenth pick of the 1983 NBA draft by the Portland Trail Blazers. Drexler had a disappointing rookie season but improved significantly in his second and third seasons in the NBA. Drexler became the leader of the Trail Blazers roster and led the franchise to the playoff in every season he played for the team. Drexler led the Trail Blazers to the 1990 and 1992 NBA Finals but was unable to secure an NBA Championship. Drexler was traded to the Houston Rockets in 1995 and won a much deserved NBA Championship. He finished his career as a ten time All-Star and was named in the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time team.

Portland Trail Blazers Head Coach: Terry Stotts

Terry Stotts began his NBA head coaching career with the Atlanta Hawks in 2002 after serving a length apprenticeship as an assistant coach at both the Seattle SuperSonics and Milwaukee Bucks. Stotts was fired by the Hawks in 2004 and was named head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks the following season. He was fired by the Bucks two seasons later and spent four year as an assistant coach at the Dallas Mavericks. After winning the NBA Championship as an assistant coach he was named head coach of the Portland Trail Blazers heading into the 2012/2013 NBA schedule. Stotts has a well-rounded Trail Blazers roster to work with and led the team to the playoffs in his second year. The team made it to the Conference Finals, and Stotts will be hoping to win it this season.
