Some 6,000 Blazers' fans went to the Rose Garden on draft night and rushed the court in celebration when Greg Oden's name was announced.
"Rip City is back," said General manager Kevin Pritchard, referring to the term coined when the Blazers won the national championship in 1977.

In the absolute BEST case scenario, Oden will model after a Bill Russell type player (which Portland can only dream for...)
Regardless, the 2007 rookie class will be fun to watch!
