THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE? Blazers officials including President Chris McGowan for months have said that they "want to upgrade the fan experience this season, from pregame hoopla to in-game amenities." Brettman wrote, "They know the ultimate marketing strategy remains the same: Win, rinse, repeat." But in "lieu of that or, ideally, in addition to that, they want to present a product that at least has the bells and whistles offered at other major pro sports arenas as they battle to increase revenue and keep up with competing markets." For example, fans before Saturday's game had the "chance to get up close and personal" with the team's '77 NBA Championship trophy, which was a "rare public display of fan appreciation using the franchise's ultimate bauble" (Portland OREGONIAN, 11/2).
