RIP CITY, 50 YEARS IN THE MAKING
Visionary Harry Glickman brings pro sports to Portland with an NBA franchise that wins a title in the same decade. Bill Walton, Maurice Lucas, Dr. Jack Ramsay and the 1977 Trail Blazers parade through downtown and etch their names into team history.
The Trail Blazers earn nine playoff berths in 10 seasons during one of the most consistent periods the team has ever seen. Portland constructs a squad that would soon compete at the game’s highest level under Paul Allen’s ownership.
Portland assumes the top spot in the Western Conference by reaching the NBA Finals in 1990 and 1992, and winning three division titles. Clyde Drexler and Terry Porter lead one of the franchise’s most successful and beloved eras.
After a heartbreaking loss in the 2000 Conference Finals, the team transforms by decade’s end. Portland leaves the 2006 NBA Draft with Brandon Roy, LaMarcus Aldridge and a bright future.
A 6-3 guard from Weber State, Damian Lillard delivers an iconic shot in the 2014 playoffs, and alongside Coach Terry Stotts and CJ McCollum, guides the team to five straight playoffs. Rip City turns 50 in 2019-20.
