How well do you know Portland Trail Blazers by the numbers?
We're talking about historical jersey numbers and the players who wore them for the Blazers? Without googling and looking for a cheat sheet on a website (that's cheating!), how many of our 30 questions can you guess correctly? Who else wore Bill Walton's number 32? Which Blazer has worn a pair of double-digit numbers for the Blazers? What number graced the uniform of the original Blazer player.
