Will the Blazers win a Championship?


Lately all we hear is talk about getting free agents and before that about drafting franchise players. So I want to know if you believe that the Blazers as currently constructed (BRoy, LMA, Oden, McMillan) will win a title.

If not who would leave and who would stay?

If you said yes, do you think they will win multiple titles as constructed? The reason I mention multiple titles is that this seems to be the case in the NBA. In fact this has been the case for a long time in the NBA (only the NBA though, no other professional sports league).


Here is a list of all the teams that have won Championships over the last 40 years.

  • 2010: Phil Jackson (L.A.)
  • 2009: Phil Jackson (L.A.)
  • 2008: Doc Rivers (Boston)
  • 2007: Gregg Popovich (San Antonio)
  • 2006: Pat Riley (Miami)
  • 2005: Gregg Popovich (San Antonio)
  • 2004: Larry Brown (Detroit)
  • 2003: Gregg Popovich (San Antonio)
  • 2002: Phil Jackson (L.A.)
  • 2001: Phil Jackson (L.A.)
  • 2000: Phil Jackson (L.A.)
  • 1999: Gregg Popovich (San Antonio)
  • 1998: Phil Jackson (Chicago)
  • 1997: Phil Jackson (Chicago)
  • 1996: Phil Jackson (Chicago)
  • 1995: Rudy Tomjanovich (Houston)
  • 1994: Rudy Tomjanovich (Houston)
  • 1993: Phil Jackson (Chicago)
  • 1992: Phil Jackson (Chicago)
  • 1991: Phil Jackson (Chicago)
  • 1990: Chuck Daly (Detroit)
  • 1989: Chuck Daly (Detroit)
  • 1988: Pat Riley (L.A. Lakers)
  • 1987: Pat Riley (L.A. Lakers)
  • 1986: K.C. Jones (Boston)
  • 1985: Pat Riley (L.A. Lakers)
  • 1984: K.C. Jones (Boston)

1984 is the year that David Stern took over as Commisioner of the NBA. He was proceeded by Larry O'Brien, who was preceeded by Walter Kennedy.

  • 1983: Billy Cunningham (Phil.),
  • 1982: Pat Riley (L.A. Lakers)
  • 1981: Bill Fitch (Boston)
  • 1980: Paul Westhead (L.A. Lakers)
  • 1979: Lenny Wilkens (Seattle)
  • 1978: Dick Motta (Washington)
  • 1977: Jack Ramsay (Portland)
  • 1976: Tom Heinsohn (Boston)
  • 1975: Al Attles (Golden State)
  • 1974: Tom Heinsohn (Boston)
  • 1973: Red Holzman (New York)
  • 1972: Bill Sharman (L.A. Lakers)
  • 1971: Larry Costello (Milwaukee)
  • 1970: Red Holzman (New York)

Now, considering the history since 1984, do you see "201?: Nate McMillan (Portland)" fitting in?
