    I’ve spoken to some friends in Portland who are die hard Blazer fans.. To those folks out there who look up to Dame….I’ll tell you right now, his commitment to the franchise paired with his talent is enough to solidify his quest to be the best ever, he’s already crowned the best ever…A chip will be the cherry on top

    He needs to win a ring. Walton is the greatest Blazer by far.

    Clyde Drexler wanted to be an NBA Champion more than the best Blazer ever. Can’t blame him…

    Gotta win Dame. Plain and simple. Portland has tasted it before. They need that again before they can crown you greater than Bill and The Glide.

      Blame the coach who won’t utilize him off ball and instead makes him play against traps and double teams. The only other player on the Blazers who can punish you is CJ and that’s a problem against defenses in the playoffs. Lillard did a much better job of handling it this last playoffs than against the Pelicans. If Lillard had a coach like Steve Kerr I have no doubt they could have beaten the warriors.

    If he leave highest in all categories, then hes the #1 Blazer hands down. Stats matter first and foremost.

      He needs a better coach first. Steve Kerr ‘ s adjustments and game planning are what allow the warriors to come back from being down 17 points pergame. If the Blazers had a better coach who could make adjustments like Kerr can they wouldn’t being blowing such big leads.

    Without a doubt, Bill Walton is the best player to ever play for the blazers, just look at his stats and his immediate impact on the team and you’ll see he destroys Dame and Clyde but because of his lesser career in terms of longevity and accolades he is not considered the best but he’s undoubtedly their most talented impactful player. He beat dr j when dr j had a loaded 76ers team!

    Bill Walton had the highest peak, Drexler had the longevity. Right now, it’s a toss up between the two. Also, I think rings are given too much weight in evaluating a player’s career. There’s something to be said for putting up 50 win seasons every single year, and advancing in the playoffs with regularity. Dame will be remembered as a truly great player who never sniffed the Finals, and that’s okay.

    Dame is dope and I love his game. However since he’ll never win the chip in Portland I don’t see him ever eclipsing Walton and likely never Drexler either unless he either gets them to the finals and/or wins league MVP (also unlikely).
