RIP Uncle Cliffy. One of my favorite Blazers of all time.

I actually got to meet him back in 2011, when I was flying back from NYC to Portland. One other passenger and I recognized him at the gate and got to spend 10 minutes chatting with him while we were all in line to board our flight. I was starstruck meeting one of my childhood heroes and he just seemed happy to know that Blazer fans still thought of him as a celebrity.

I just got the news. Petrovic is gone to. Remember Ramon Ramos, he's still alive but he was the first tragedy. There must be a curse on that team.

Damn, this is so sad. So many Blazer favorites from the era I became a fan of the team have died way too young.

This is hard. Seeing people you grew up watching play in the NBA pass on. Especially former Blazers. :(
