Never understood how that makes any sense or what's the real meaning behind that. I know we have at least a few Portland fans here or even non, can anyone explain?

Bill Schonely the old Blazers Announcer coined the term.  From what Blazer fans have told me here in PDX, its  from the sound of a long three going through the net, and that Bill Schonely admittingly had no idea why he said that.

^ So the guy who came up with it just came up with it pretty randomly even himself? It still doesn't make a lot of sense.
