So this is the thought that I had come to after the recent events that have transpired. I believe that we as Trail Blazers fans have the unique opportunity to prove that we really ARE the best fans, not only in the NBA but in all of sports.
Previously when the Trail Blazers have struggled our attendance has sagged, mainly due to the whole metro area being fed up with the "jailblazers". This is different however, This team we can really get behind and I think that is exactly what they need. Call this a rallying cry but I do believe that fans can affect the outcome of a game. Even if we start to dip below that .500 mark we need to spread the word and spread that Blazer love and show up to every game with that same fever pitch level that we have seen over the past year. I don't want us to be one of those teams whose attendance fluxuates with our win/loss record.
I believe that we have the chance to show the nation how much we really care for our team. For better or for worse they are our team, and the only team we have. Lets cheer them on at every game like it is Game 7 of the NBA finals. This goes for all of you displaced Blazers fans as well. Lets continue to show up in mass support on the road as well. I really feel that if we prove the NBA that we are the most loyal fanbase other players will start to notice and we can land those free agents that have eluded us in the past. Lets make Portland the place to be in the NBA regardless of how well our team is doing.
