A list of the best Portland Trail Blazers of all time. The only major sports franchise in Rip City, the Trail Blazers have been a source of civic pride in Portland since its inception in 1970. The Blazers notoriously have the worst draft luck in the NBA. But it wasn't always that way. Though the team had solid players in its early years, no one would could compare to when the team draft Bill Walton. The UCLA star is considered one of the best centers ever. Along with the addition of Maurice Lucas, the Blazers became one of the best teams in the NBA. Portland won the NBA championship in 1977 and seemed like it was on the cusp of a dynasty until Walton broke his foot.

Despite losing Walton, the Blazers were consistent winners throughout its history. They were helped by the play of the greatest players in its history. Hall of Fame guard Clyde Drexler led the team in the 1980s and players like Terry Porter and Jerome Kersey were other excellent players who contributed to those winning teams. Though the team made a huge mistake in drafting Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan in 1984, the Blazers made two NBA Finals appearances in 1990 and 1992. 

The end of the 1990s saw the team's next wave of success. Behind All Star power forward Rasheed Wallace, the Trailblazers were a consistent threat to win the NBA championship. As great of a player as Wallace was, the team couldn't quite get over the proverbial hump.
