Rip City, rap city

Tonight the Portland Trailblazers will wear their alternate "rip city" home jerseys.
Even more rare than the alternate red road jersey, these jerseys are only dusted off on special occasions. I'm thinking the motivation behind this decision comes from the importance of tonight's game. Not only are the Clippers a viable opponent, but this is the last game of a three games in three nights stretch for the Blazers. If they don't come out to play then it could be a long night. I happen to think, in my unbiased opinion, that Portland have some of the best jerseys in the league. That being said, our alternate jerseys are just so cool that the team should break them out more often. Example, when they played at New Orleans the other night, we played in our home whites because the Nuthorns were color blind.

 I think the red jerseys would have been pretty cool in that situation. We weren't the home team! I think they should use these jerseys at least a few more times this year. Why not flaunt it if you got it?
