The Portland Trail Blazers have set their fan base on fire with an emotional retrospective video celebrating the team’s 50th anniversary. Under the banner, “We’ve grown up together”, the PR video mixes vintage on-court footage with vignettes of fans and the city from various periods. Highlights include the 1977 World Championship, former owner Paul Allen cutting the ribbon on the Rose Garden/Moda Center, and the 1990 Trail Blazers landing at Hillsboro Airport after punching their ticket to the NBA Finals. No matter what your era or inclinations, the video has something for you. Check it out and share which scene or era touched you most.
