To celebrate their 50-year anniversary, the Trail Blazers are rolling out five separate decade nights. The first of those special occasions takes place tonight when the Blazers face the 76ers, the same franchise they defeated to secure the 1977 NBA Championship. Along with special uniforms and a re-designed court, the Blazers asked fans to vote for their favorite players from each decade.

The Blazers unveiled the 1970’s favorites prior to Saturday’s game.

Bill Walton, Maurice Lucas and Lionel Hollins represent a trio of title-winning players that finished inside the top five. Geoff Petrie and Sidney Wicks comprised the final two players of the fan vote.
