Has CJ's value gone up since this am?
Just going to say this --- Portland has always been silent then BOOM they drop a trade and I have learned that if you hear a rumor out of this front office chances are it WAS discussed but for whatever reason is now DEAD so with all the moves you see do not get too down on NeO ...... at least not yet
Neil is a horrible GM.
hey...you're the one making the big moderator bucks, and you still want me to mange your moderation?
Neil’s is waiting for his usual cash considerations trade
One of the 25 other suspect gm's.
The only thing I expect from Neil today is a look.
my man neil is patiently waiting for the right deal
chess not checkers
Yeh, his second tweet saying Blazers might try to get a late first round pick contained just as much inside info. Haha
Just means he doesn't have insights on the Blazers. Not many reporters do. Most of our moves are completely tight lipped until they're announced.
Really not seeing much out there if Morey is asking that much for Simmons then there’s not much left. I hate to say this but really think Dame gets traded to Philly or NY within the next month.
Survey says "X....................." Not happening, but if Morey thinks he can get Wiggins,Wiseman & 4 1st for Simmons, then a trade involving Dame would be, Simmons, Harris, Curry, and 10 1st.
All I know is every fucking year, around this time, the most successful teams are ALWAYS making moves, taking risks, publically putting feelers out for this player and that. Staying stagnant is death.
And every year, I watch the Blazers either stand pat or make fringe moves that barely move the needle or swap one roster problem for another. It's been going on for DECADES.
I'm so goddamn tired of it.
This franchise is so paralyzed with fear of not being competitive/making the playoffs that the goal is mediocrity and every once in a while they luck into a good draft or two to break into the mid-upper echelon (but never elite) and then back down to an at-best 6-8 seed. Good enough to sell to the fans, not bad enough to take the hit on attendance or merch sales.
We can just hope that Dame's mandate changes things this season. We definitely have made a lot of moves and there have rarely if ever been rumors of those deals before they were announced.
Blazers are permanently happy with just selling hope.
Bingo.....it works both ways
look, there were no deals to make...
I get your frustration...its the league, traditionally 24 of thirty teams are average at best. It was great to see two new teams in the CS and they will be contenders again next year.
