Good point Nygher.
I am a Portlander and been a fan my whole life.
I guess I was just looking for something new for the uniforms but yeah the logo should stay the same, like you said. It is a history icon and what the hell would they come up with anyways other than the pinweel? A trail with fire? That's crap. Uuuhhh, an Oregon Trail type logo on fire, maybe with a cowboy on a wagon with a basketball. That's even more stupid. I guess we shouldn't mess with the logo.
It's funny, I heard on the radio station "1080 The Fan" that the original logo is a "p" and "b" morphed together, which of course stands for "Portland Blazers". I didn't know that until recently. I just thought it was two trails meeting each other and didn't think about the letters. That's embarrassing to admit I guess.
Anyway, it's good that the team is getting much better and can't wait to see Oden and the gang play this year.
