As part of Blazer's Edge's tenth anniversary, we're reflecting on the people and events that have defined the past decade. And after previously discussing the Blazers' biggest villains, it felt appropriate to do the opposite now.
Ninety-six players have passed through Portland since early 2006, when Blazer's Edge debuted. Don't worry, you don't need to remember every name, we'll helpfully list the players below. In short, a lot of players have worn red and black. How did we get from Brian Skinner to Mason Plumlee? Well, that might be a separate topic. Nonetheless, here is our question of the week:
Who was your favorite Blazer during the Blazer's Edge era?
To be clear, we are not asking for who was the best Blazer player. That one will come along later, prepare your arguments in advance. Instead, this is about your personal favorite Blazers, and the reasons you became so attached. Some people love the All-Stars, but sometimes the bench-warmers have a big fan base.
How to nominate your favorite Blazer:
1. Check the comments to see if your choice has already been nominated. If so, click rec!
2. If your favorite has not been nominated, nominate him!
- Post a comment with the title: "Nominate: [person]". Then, in the body of the comment, explain why he is your favorite! Some of the best responses will be included in the upcoming "favorite player" countdown. If you want to give another reason, reply and add one.
3. You can rec more than one player! If you think 5 or 10 players deserve a rec, go for it.
To help you out, here is a handy list of players who have passed through town in the past ten years. Have some fun!
