Default Favorite Blazers by Era

Looking back at the 70's:
I'd have to say Maurice Lucas. Most would probably say Walton, but I just love Lucas' toughness and how close he has stayed with the Blazer community. Heck, he is a current Blazers' Assistant coach.

Early 80's:
This is the era I know the least about because there really wasn't anything noteworthy. So, I have to make the uneducated selection of Mychal Thompson.

Late 80's--Early 90's:
Drexler. Its not even a question really. That is not to say I didn't love Porter, Kersey, etc. I used to like Uncle Cliffy, but he kind of killed his image in the last 6 years or so in the league.

Late 90's:
Arvydas Sabonis! That dude was the man. Its unfortunate he wasn't teamed with Drexler in the late 80's and early 90's. The Bulls would have nobody to stop him so I think we could have very possibly won a chip or two. But still, Sabas in his old age was still a marvel to watch.

Early 2000's:
Scottie Pippen. It just seems unreal that this guy was a Blazer. I always liked the guy, and I wouldn't have ever thought that he would have been on our team. To me, that's like hearing that Tim Duncan will end up on our team eventually.

Current era:
Roy. The first all-star since Sheed, but without the attitude. I love this guy's swagger and confidence. Hopefully, I will some day struggle to choose a favorite between Roy, Aldridge, and Oden. But for now, Roy is the only one that has done anything to live up to his potential (not saying the others won't).
