I know it's probably been posted a thousand times before but I just don't care. Every time I see this I choke back tears. The last few years have been hard on the Blazers but up until this season we could always say, "We still got Brandon!" This season is a good indication of just how far we've fallen. Brandon was a superstar and a finisher. A killer like we haven't seen since MJ himself and I'm not just talking about that playoff game against Dallas. If he played for the *akers or the Bulls, his retirement would have been a national tragedy in the world of sports. Playing for our "little" Portland Trailblazers, it was barely a blip on the radar of national sports coverage. For those who say Brandon got his big contract and will be just fine...watch that vid and tell me he wouldn't trade every cent to step back out on that court even one more time. He was SO much better than he was ever given credit for and Brandon....boy do we EVER miss you. THANK YOU for all you did for this team and this city. I'll never forget you.
