“Jail Blazers” in production, says ex-NBA guard Damon Stoudamire


The Portland TrailBlazers had a lot of talent on its roster in the early 2000s, and yet the team was succeeding more in getting into legal troubles than winning.

Now it seems like the general public will be able to witness what was happening off the court with the team, that earned another nickname – “Jail Blazers”.

Former Blazer Damon Stoudamire, who played for the team from 1998-2005, told the Oregonian that a film on that Portland team is already in production.

“We got a lot of people on board,” Stoudamire said. “It’s going to be interesting. It’s going to be so interesting it might be two parts.”

An immensely talented team, the TrailBlazers at the time was in trouble on a regular basis. Stoudamire and Rasheed Wallace  got caught with marijuana possession in 2002, and Stoudamire got caught with it a year later as well. Other players faced charges for sexual assault, animal abuse and underage drinking.

“You want to hear from the guys that were actually the guys that were getting into things,” Stoudamire said. “You’ll hear from those guys.”

Stoudamire played 13 seasons in the NBA, over 7 of them with the Portland TrailBlazers. He holds career averages of 13.4 ppg, 6.1 apg in 33.2 mpg.
