Blazers to wear '76-77 uniforms in 5 home games

At five home games this season, the Portland Trail Blazers will wear red jerseys with "blazers" in lowercase letters written vertically down the chest.

The jerseys resemble those the team wore during the 1976-77 season, when they won the NBA title. Bill Walton, the center on that team, helped the Blazers unveil the jerseys on Sunday.

The team also will wear the jerseys and matching red shorts during their preseason opener Oct. 8.

The Blazers will be celebrating their 50th NBA season.
