Rod Strickland was a great player. He had some problems for sure, but he was a great PG. It was especially fun to watch Strickland and Sabonis together. That duo had some real potential. To bad Carlesimo didn't have a better understanding of how to manage challenging personalities.

I probably should have had Troutlaw at least an honorable mention. Shocked how his career lampooned after his time in PDX. Watching him was fun though.

ANNOUNCER VOICE
NUMBER NINE - Wesley Matthews



Started from the bottom player that worked his way into the league. Stepped up when Roy went down. Key piece on the Aldridge-era teams. Team was a real darkhorse contender prior to Matthews tearing his ACL, but even with what many would view as a career ending injury, he's still fighting and playing in the league.

NUMBER EIGHT - Darius Miles



Human.
Highlight.
Reel.

Quite possibly the most athletically gifted player the Blazers have ever had. Capable of incredible explosion plays. Never got his head on right. Never had that Kobe work ethic. But then he'd have those moments where you'd understand why Paul Allen overpaid to retain him. Yeah, there's some bad blood about his "comeback" ruining Blazers cap space, but his 47 point farewell game was a work of beauty.

ANNOUNCER VOICE
NUMBER SEVEN - Andre Miller



Admit it - you forgot about 'Dre. Yeah, he couldn't shoot, and yeah, he was a less than ideal fit for a McMillan "put the ball in Roy's hands and stand around for 23 seconds" offense. But man could he ball. Old man game. Come into the YMCA wearing flip-flops and still beat everybody game. Who can hate on that?

NUMBER SIX - Rod Strickland



The original "point god". Based on the "Greatest Blazers Ever" poll, an easy top 3 underrated Blazer. Guy lead the league in assists. One of the best players to never make an all-star game. Blazers history a bit tainted by his second stint and the fact that his best years were put on on those mid-1990s fringe playoff teams that are often forgotten.
