My guess, as a Blazers fan, is that it has to do with the Oregon Trail, and Portland being one of the ending points of said trail...but I'm not a pro.
I've read that it has to do with the pioneering history of oregonians...and the name 'pioneers' was taken by a local college team already, so a citizen vote deemed the 'trail blazers' the winning choice.
The Trailblazers are named for the Oregon Trail

As of March 19, 2008 the NBA record for fewest points in a quarter is 2 set by the Dallas Mavericks in 1997 and the Golden State Warriors in 2004.
HE could sit out and demand a trade..like Steve francis did in Vancouver.. he would lose endosrement deals probably..but this is not a real possibility..because greg love portland and the team that he will be on...go blazers
No what the Blazers should do is trade him because he sucks and get a better player. Oden isn't even bringing in a lot of seats roy is. So to fans on a team like charlotte they'd think he was awesome cuz he did good in college and he'd bring in some seats.In portland hes just filling up a roster spot for another player. I mean c'mon he got rim stuffed and he's seven feet tall!!!!!
