Sports have had a long time tradition in the Beaver State. From horse racing to greyhound racing, baseball to football and much more, sports have always been part of the state’s culture. Today, Oregon is proud to have two professional teams with great fan bases.
The Portland Trail Blazers have been one of the most traditional teams in the National Basketball Association (NBA).
The Blazers won one NBA title back in 1977 and were a solid contender in the 90s, reaching the finals twice in 1990 and 1992.
Unfortunately, there was a guy named Michael Jordan, who led the Chicago Bulls to 6 titles over that decade, one of them over the Blazers in 92.
The Blazers have been strong in recent years led by a young core that could make the team fight for a NBA title soon.
