We're into week five of the "Andre Miller Experiment" and a lot has been made about team chemistry. Being that it's the Blazers' 40th anniversary season, we decided to combine the science of chemistry with the history of the Blazers' organization .

We narrowed it down to 108 of the most influential Blazers ever. However, keep the following disclaimers in mind:

(1) We only included players that were on a Blazers roster for more than one season (sorry, Jim Barnett fan), (2) We included the front office and coaches (those that really mattered) and thus (3) were unable to mention every single Blazers' cubicle warrior, despite everyone's best effort to make the Portland Trail Blazers the one we've come to love and support unconditionally, just as (4) you'll have to come to support my being a die-hard Blazer fan and a big, fat, nerd.

But, this is chemistry. Regular old water? That's easy - H(2) + O - or, in this case Drexler(2) + Porter. Another example brings up three of my all-time favorite Blazers: Silver Nitrate - Ag + N + O(3), or - Aldridge + Petrovic + Porter. What Blazer chemical compounds can you come up with?
