NWSB Editor Bryant Knox profiles Portland Trail Blazers radio broadcaster, Brian Wheeler. Wheeler, also known as Wheels, brings the perfect combination of truth, honesty and fandom to his broadcasts. Whether it’s a huge slam, a last-second shot by Nicolas Batum or a miracle comeback by Brandon Roy, Wheels paints a picture for all listeners to see. When you listen to Wheeler, it’s a great day to be a Blazer.
NWSB Insider and Portland Trailblazers blogger Blair Thomas tells us why he’s a sold out 100% PDX basketball fan for life. It is about family. From 1977 to 1995 Rip City sold out 814 home games, the longest streak in American major professional sports. The Blazers made the city proud and the family thanked them in return. PDX was lucky to have had Clyde Drexler. LaMarcus Aldridge is the promise of a bright future.
