A BRIEF BIO:
We were founded in 2010 after a group of people on facebook began to use the term "Blazer Gang". Two of the founders decided to branch off and begin their interest in a social media fan page now currently known as Blazer Gang and known for making up such terms/names as "Blazergonian". We began on Facebook where we currently have nearly 2.7k members (Currently second largest blazer fan site) we also have a twitter (@Blazer_gang) and an Instagram account (@officialblazergang).
I began my love for the Blazers around the age of 7 (in 1990) watching Drexler, Ainge, Uncle Cliff, Porter and Duck. One of my earliest memories is the NBA finals verse Michael and the Bulls before the game I was outside with my basketball telling myself if I make 2 of 3 free throws the Blazers will beat the Bulls. I made the shots but unfortunately so did Michael, when it came down to it. It was something about RipCity basketball that caught my attention young. I remained a Blazer fan through all the years even the so called Jail Blazer Era. I felt Brandon Roy brought back a lot of the spirit of RipCity-post jailblazer era. So in 2010, when I awakened out of my sleep at 3AM and told myslef i'm going to start a fan site, I did and I never looked back.
I wanted to give the NBAs best fans a name and a voice and this is where I came up with our motto "Built by the fans for the fans". I wanted to design my own merchandise and as a fan myself be able to wear it and that's what I did. Since then we have created several designs and continue coming up with ideas, creating new business partners, and continuously growing.
Our main goal is to give fans a name and a voice. Our second goal is to give back to our community and our schools. We donate 50% of our sales to our contests and to parents and kids of schools we attended in which we send families to games and allow them the chance to get autographs prior to game also.
At this time we would like to thank all of our members, the fans, the players, and everyone else who has played a role in our success and our growth.
