PORTLAND, Ore. — As part of the Portland Trail Blazers' celebration of their 50th season in the NBA, fans will have a chance to go on a bike ride this Sunday with legendary center Bill Walton.
The bike ride will end at Terry Schrunk Plaza, the same place the team's championship parade concluded on June 6, 1977. After a special announcement at 3:30 p.m., there will be live music from Garcia Birthday Band, a Grateful Dead cover band.
"As the MVP of the 1977 NBA Finals, Bill Walton would often ride his bike to home games at Veterans Memorial Coliseum while fans would sit on their porches to wave to him and wish him luck — he even rode his bike to the championship parade," the Blazers said in a press release announcing the event.
