Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports that former Hall of Fame coach Jack Ramsay, who guided the Portland Trail Blazers to the franchise's only title in 1977, has some nice things to say about this year's team.

"They can match up with anybody, they defend well and they can score when they need to," Ramsay said of the Blazers. "I think (coach) Terry Stotts has done an incredible job with that group. It's kind of reminiscent of the Trail Blazers team that I got when I first came to Portland. Nobody expected anything from that team - they had never had a .500 season - but everybody did his share. I think this team has similar components."

The full story is right here, which includes praises for coach Terry Stotts.

Dave had a lengthy reflection on Ramsay's legacy back in May after he stepped away from his radio broadcasting gig due to health issues.

PS Thanks to HailBlazers in the FanShots for getting there first.
