Portland Trail Blazers 2024 NBA Championship Odds

Since their last playoff appearance in 2021, the Portland Trail Blazers have been in a rapid decline to their current status as one of the worst teams in the NBA. Last offseason, franchise icon Damian Lillard moved on to the Milwaukee Bucks as the final white flag of surrender and a commitment to rebuild by the Trail Blazers. Despite their terrible status and straight up record, Portland is breaking even with the oddsmakers. That is because the masses will not touch the Trail Blazers, forcing the linemakers to sweeten the pot with enhanced prices to draw action to Portland. Bargain hunters have taken a liking to the Trail Blazers as a result.

Portland Trail Blazers History

Since their founding as an NBA expansion franchise in 1970, the Portland Trail Blazers have been one of the more successful teams in the league in terms of postseason appearances. Portland has made the playoffs 37 times in their 53 seasons in the league, but its first playoff appearance was undoubtedly its best.

After failing to finish with a winning record in each of their first six seasons, the 1976-77 Portland Trail Blazers brought the franchise their lone NBA title. Bill Walton, Maurice Lucas, and Lionel Hollins teamed up to lead this team on a tear in the playoffs under Jack Ramsay, and they beat the Philadelphia 76ers in six games to claim the championship.

Health issues with Walton kept this team from being more of a force during the next few years, but the Trail Blazers remained competitive. They eventually brought in a new crop of stars and went to the NBA Finals in 1990 and 1992. Clyde ‘The Glyde’ Drexler was unable to take the team past Detroit or Chicago though.

Portland was competitive in the late 1990s too with a team that included two young stars in Rasheed Wallace and Damon Stoudamire, and solid veterans like Scottie Pippen, Detlef Schrempf, and the legendary Arvydas Sabonis. They made it to the Western Conference Finals in back-to-back seasons and were probably better than the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2000 Western Conference Finals. The Lakers came back from a 16-point deficit to beat the Blazers in Game 7, and that’s a game that many people circled after the Tim Donaghy scandal broke open.
