Portland Trail Blazers Best Players of All Time

The Portland Trail Blazers have been a beloved part of the American basketball community since their inception in 1970. As one of the only teams to remain in its original city since joining the National Basketball Association (NBA), they are an iconic presence for both sports fans and locals alike. The team has experienced highs, such as winning their first championship title in 1977, and recently lows with missing out on playoffs from 2016-18, but that hasn’t diminished fan loyalty or enthusiasm for all things Blazer Nation.

After his retirement from playing, Hollins became an assistant coach with the Houston Rockets where he has been since 2006. Hollins has been a successful coach in the NBA, leading various teams to playoff berths and winning several championships with Memphis.

After playing collegiately at Georgetown, where he won a national championship in 1978 as a member of the Hoyas' 1976 NCAA Championship team, Hollins began his professional career with the Portland Trail Blazers in 1975.

As impressive as these early results may have been though given how competitive the Western Conference then boasted they were nevertheless eclipsed by what followed: 1987–1988 saw Houston win its first ever division title whilst recording their highest regular season record en route too becoming onlythe fourth squad since 1965 (after Boston Celtics , Los Angeles Lakers & Milwaukee Bucks )to achieve such a feat…Successive postseason appearances including back-to-back conference finals appearances gave rise too much expectation levels amongst fans who’d grown accustomed too watching perennial bottom feeders like Utah Jazz or New Orleans Hornets compete seriously against top flight opponents annually...

Unfortunately Houstons run came To A Close Just One Series Away From The Title When They Lost 4 Straight First Round matchups Against Chicago Bulls Including An Unforgettable Game Six Victory At The United Center That Became Known As “The Shot” (In Which Michael Jordan Recorded 45 Points And 13 Rebounds)... Following His Time With The Rockets Hollins Began Serving AS Assistant Coach Under Rick Adelman On The Sacramento Kings Before Becoming Head Coach Of His Alma M
