        All these idiots who bring up the "stop getting swept" bullshit need to put these things in perspective....and you morons never do. Never.

        He got swept by being smothered in the Pelicans series by 3 All-Defensive players, something which even prime LeBron wouldn't have been able to overcome with the same team and coach that Lillard had at the time. Then he got swept by a GENERATIONAL TEAM in the Golden State Warriors. A GENERATIONAL team. You tards seem to forget that part of the equation, and it's a pretty big important part of it too.

        Nobody in the west is beating a healthy GS team with Kerr as coach. And if you think the Lakers or Clippers are winning against a healthy GS team, then you are a fucking moron of epic proportions. There have been two generational teams in the past 25 years: the Bulls and the Warriors. That is how rare they are, and that is why they are considered a Generational Team.

        Put THAT into context, and stop bringing up this "swept" bullshit. It doesn't work when you put the argument into context. 1 All-Star is not going to beat 3 or 4 All-Stars by himself. Not gonna happen. CONTEXT people!

              Unless he wins a championship he won't be. Clyde is better and Bill Walton is the best in my opinion

                I dissagree with the guy in the middle its not good enough to just make it he needs to win it and more than one because if he just wins one there will always be "so did bill" naw dame won several the descussion is over.

                  Usally every player that's so passionate about the city they live in usually end up getting traded.

                                          As great as Clyde was, the best Blazer imo is for sure Bill Walton. Lead them to a title while being an MVP and a DPOY, his tenure with Portland wasn’t as long as Clyde’s but far more accomplished as a Blazer.

                                            People are devaluing winning more and more these days. Championship is the goal. patrick Ewing could be considered greater than clyde Willis but who cares if all he did was lose lol

                                                      Bro obviously you've never seen the years of highlights of Clyde the glide vs. Air Jordan. Because if you say that you have and still make that statement then you're either blind or have a serious bias. And in which case it's the latter? Then amigo you are just flat-out wrong.

                                                    He's overrated. Clyde the glide played defense and scored. He was second in MVP. He also was a great slam dunker. Dane has not even made it past the second round.

However since he’ll never win the chip in Portland I don’t see him ever eclipsing Walton and likely never Drexler either unless he either gets them to the finals and/or wins league MVP (also unlikely).
