The Portland Trail Blazers are a professional basketball team located in Portland, Oregon. The team is a huge attraction in Portland, due in part to the fact that the Portland Trailblazers are currently the only major league professional sports team in the state. From 1977-1995, the Blazers sold out 814 consecutive home games, a record in American professional sports. The Blazers, who entered the National Basketball Association in 1970, play in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference. They currently play their games in Portland’s Rose Garden Arena (opened in 1995).
The Portland Trail Blazers have had a celebrated existence, winning the NBA championship once (in 1977) and reaching the finals a total of three times. The franchise has produced four hall of fame players (Bill Walton, Lenny Wilkens, Clyde Drexler, and Drazen Petrovic). Bill Walton, the Blazer’s most decorated player, was the 1977 NBA finals Most Valuable Player, as well the the league’s MVP the following year. The team, since 1988, has been under the ownership of Paul Allen.
