Video: Rip City Revival – ’09 Blazers Tribute

A well-deserved applause.

The youngest team in the Playoffs has “dark horse” written all over it. Watch Maxamillion‘s video and you’ll see exactly why. We don’t expect the Blazers to take the Western Conference title this season, but the Revival in Rip City has been nothing short of spectacular. From the Jail Blazers days to a management overhaul to near-title contenders, we applaud how the organization prevailed in bringing excitement back to Portland.

Sure, it’s over-zealous to rally before Playoffs even began, but recall everything that happened during the six-year post-season drought and you might be celebrating as well. Good basketball in Rip City is something the NBA and Portland fans needed. Max’s video is almost more compelling to watch with the crowd’s reaction. Over 10,000 people showed up during the Blazers huge rally in downtown Portland last week. It’s safe to say this 10-minute masterpiece reminded everyone exactly how amazing this Revival truly has been.

    After the way they played in game 1 I bet Nate never has a pre-playoffs celebration ever again.

    @ Anton naw, the Hawks got that down pat. When the Hawks are winning, you’d better get some damn earplugs to come to a home game at the Phillips Arena

    I like to watch the blazers but I live in europe and don’t have leauge pass so if I want to watch them now I have to wait untill 4.30 am hehe I love the game but that’s a little to much even for me from time to time.

    but besides the D-Miles thing this was a good year for the blazers organisation. Just wonder how their gonna manage all this talent next year and the two years after that because rookie contracts don’t last forever you know
