Happy Birthday Phil Jackson and Rasheed Wallace!

To celebrate the birth of these two great enigmas, here is Game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Portland Trail Blazers in its entirety (Blazers fans, we feel you):

The outcome of this series would later define the subsequent years of both Phil Jackson and Rasheed Wallace’s NBA careers. Phil would go on to win another three-peat this time with the Lakers. While Sheed has a three-peat of his own only for drug charges and other forms of misconduct during the great Portland “Jail Blazers” years. Wallace would however find a new home in Detroit and would get his revenge four years later by defeating Phil’s Lakers in the 2004 NBA Finals.

Arvydas Sabonis.  Welcome to the Naismith Hall of Fame.

Raymond Felton ushers in the cupcake era of the Blazers. Hopefully Paul Allen doesn’t fire the Blazers’ personal trainers.

Blazer Mania!

Having just won four straight after beating both Orlando and Miami back-to-back in their Florida trip, things are starting to be positive again for the new look Blazers. So posi, some people are starting to develop Blazer Mania!. (We got bit by the bug a few weeks ago as well, when we switched over our blog avatar and twitter background to this spectacular photo).

More importantly though, there was actually an art show earlier this January called just that.

Not to be upstaged by Toronto’s Ron Artest themed art show, the city of Portland held their own themed art show at the Compound Gallery dedicated to all things Portland Trailblazers. The show featured some wood cut-outs, player illustrations, paintings, pin-up girls, Scottie Pippen jerseys, the epicest poster starring Portland’s bigs (so epic I just made up the term ‘epicest’), and of course a gold statue of Greg Oden as Poseidon.

No word if Carrie Brownstein was in attendance or if Rudy Fernandez will be acting alongside Kyle MacLachlan in next week’s Portlandia.

After playing only one game for the Thunder in 2008, and playing two seasons in the D-LEAGUE taming mountain lions and building a log cabin with his bare hands, Steven Hill and his epic beard (and ponytail) is back in the NBA after signing a contract with the Blazers.

Shades of early Bill Walton?
