The Trail Blazers apparently don’t watch much “Portlandia”

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — “Portlandia” is a comedy set in Portland and filmed in Portland. So it’s no surprise that the Portland Trail Blazers have been featured on the show previously, several times.

If only Pat Stacks were still on the scene, I’d love to see him get in on the fun as well.
