Blazers vs Clippers
The Portland Trail Blazers have recently announced the stepping down of their general manager Rich Cho , in favor of Chad Buchanan.
That was not the only change for the team this season. The Portland Trail Blazers also acquired the former All Star and All Defensive forward Gerald Wallace . Forward Dante Cunningham , center Joel Pryzbilla and center Sean Marks were sold to the Charlotte Bobcats in the process. This transaction was done with the intention of turning the Blazers around in spite of the numerous roster injuries they have had.
A little bit of Portland Trail Blazers history
With their induction into the League in 1970, the Trail Blazers became the only major league franchise in Oregon . They had a pretty strong fan following from 1977 to 1995. The Trail Blazers have the record for the longest streak for selling out tickets for the home games. They sold out 814 consecutive home games. Such popularity maybe due to the fact that the Trail Blazers are the only NBA team with its home base in the bi-national Pacific Northwest .

The arena can increase its capacity to above 20,000 with standing room. Both the Trail Blazers and the Rose Garden is owned by Paul Allen through Vulcan Sports and Entertainment.
The origin of the name
The name "Trail Blazers" was the one they had chosen right from the very beginning, when the franchise was inducted into the League. The name was chosen from the winning results of a naming contest held by the management to pick a suitable title. From around 10,000 entries, they shortlisted two names – the “Pioneers” and the "Trail Blazers". With 172 entries, "Trail Blazers" was chosen because the name “Pioneers” was already being used by the sports teams at Portland 's Lewis and Clark College .
