The Portland Trail Blazers entered into the NBA as an expansion team beginning in the 1970-71 season. Although they experienced the usual struggles of an expansion team, within 7 seasons they had won an NBA championship.

From the beginning the Trail Blazers had some talented players. One in particular was Geoff Petrie, who played only 6 seasons. In his rookie year Petrie scored over 2,000 points and he would never average fewer than 18.0 points per game.

Despite having such prolific scorers as Geoff Petrie and Sidney Wicks, the Blazers posted losing records each of their first 6 seasons.

By the 1976-77 season, both Petrie and Wicks were gone and had been replaced by a team centered around Bill Walton and Maurice Lucas. With a core group of players that also included Lionel Hollins, Bob Gross, Larry Steel and Dave Twardzik, the Trail Blazers made short work of their opposition during a 14-5 run through the playoffs. In the NBA Finals of that year they met up with a potent Philadelphia 76ers team that had Julius Erving, George McGinnis, World B. Free and Doug Collins. Nevertheless, the Blazers emerged with a 4 games to 2 victory over the Sixers.

In addition to 1977, the Blazers have made two more trips to the NBA Finals in 1990 and 1992. These Blazer teams were led by Clyde Drexler and Terry Porter. In 1990 they lost to Isiah Thomas and the Detroit Pistons. In 1992 the Blazers lost in 6 games to Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls.

The Blazers also advanced to the Western Conference Finals in 1991, 1999 and 2000. In 1991 Portland was defeated in 6 games by Magic Johnson and the Lakers. In 1999 the Blazers - led by Rasheed Wallace and Isaiah Rider - lost in 4 games to the San Antonio Spurs of David Robinson and Tim Duncan. In 2000, the Blazers - now with Scottie Pippen and Steve Smith - lost a great series to Shaq, Kobe Bryant and the Lakers.

Throughout their history the Portland Trail Blazers have been one of the most successful NBA franchises. In the 27 seasons between 1977 and 2003, the Blazers made the postseason 26 times, including 21 straight trips between 1983 and 2003.
