RIP to The Godfather of Portland Sports – Harry Glickman. He was a great man and a bold sports visionary who loved our City and State – the best promoter we’ve ever had. Thank you Harry for believing we belonged in the Big League and making it happen – God Bless!

Very saddened to hear this today. Without Harry Glickman there’s no Rip City. His importance to the city of Portland can’t be measured. https://t.co/J8lwVh5WOS

I hope the @trailblazers rename the court “Harry Glickman Court” next year, and for good. Without Harry, there is no Rip City, no “and the game is over!!!” Say hello to Dr Jack, Duck, Snapper, Jerome, Luke, Herm, Larry, Stu, Robin, Paul, and Petro for us.
