The Portland City Council honored the 2018-19 Portland Trail Blazers by proclaiming June 12, 2019 as Portland Trail Blazers Day to show recognition for the team’s best season since 2000. Head coach Terry Stotts and president of basketball operations Neil Olshey both attended the ceremony.

KGW’s Jared Cowley relayed some of Olshey’s glowing remarks during the ceremony about owner Jody Allen:

Olshey also took time during the ceremony to recognize Damian Lillard for winning the NBA’s citizenship award. You can find full video of the council gathering here (the Blazers potion of the meeting starts at about 7:15 in the video):
