Over the weekend I was thinking about the possibility of the Blazers getting good again...good winning percentage, making the playoffs, that kind of thing. I thought how enjoyable it would be. But then I thought how it's also pretty enjoyable now. If and when they win will it be more enjoyable, enjoyable in a different way, or what? I know there will be a smile on my face, but why?
So that got my brain spinning and I decided I wanted to ask this question:
What will it mean to you if the Blazers get really good, go deep in the playoffs, or (dare to dream) win a championship? Why does winning matter? Does it change things? If so, what things and how? If a banner gets hoisted in the rafters, does that improve the quality of your fandom?
(Note one of the key aspects of the question is the "to you" part. This is a personal experience topic as much as anything. There are no right or wrong answers so ponder away.)
