Round 2 begins! There are only six matchups in the second round, pitting the dozen winners in Round 1 against each other. And I can tell already, this is going to get nasty. As always, we encourage conversation along with your votes. Just MAKE SURE your vote is clearly marked in its own comment (not threaded under anyone else's comment) with the name in the subject line.
If you don't know the rest of the rules, they're right after the jump.
In the comment section below please vote for one of these players:
Keep in mind you can use any criteria you wish to make your vote as long as you're considering the Blazer tenure of each player. Enjoy!
- Each day you'll get a head-to-head matchup. Vote for one as the winner. Use any criteria you wish: talent, contributions, effect, or just that you like 'em better.
- Consider only a player's Portland tenure in your decision. Nothing for other teams counts!
- We are NOT doing simple polls on these because polls can be spammed. One account, one vote in the comment section.
- Please label your vote clearly in the subject line of your comment. Feel free to explain at length and argue in the body of the comment. We encourage discussion (it's the point, in fact) but please do NOT cast your original vote seeded as a reply to someone else's comment.
- The *asterisk* above indicates this caveat: Bill Walton, Clyde Drexler, Maurice Lucas, and Terry Porter will not be a part of the Star Smackdown. By contributions or popularity they're superstars and would probably make the other voting meaningless. We're reserving a special category for them in another year.
