    The video he tweeted a link to opens with a batshit crazy, false quote from Adolf Hitler about black people being the real chosen people, not the jews. No joke.

    Blazers are only 9th in Athletic power rankings. When will they learn? Last year is LAST YEAR. Warriors are trash now.

    You think the Warriors ARENT trash? They just lost to Hornets and Pistons and have a worse record than OKC. I’ll give you this: they were good LAST year. But this is the 2022-23 season. Warriors are trash. The Draymond/Poole thing left a bigger mark than they’ll admit.

    I do enjoy your eternal Blazer optimism, and I also somewhat enjoy your overreactions to small sample-sizes. But when you call virtually every team in the NBA 'trash', it eventually loses its meaning and humor.

    There are a few teams in the NBA that I believe are 'trash'. Houston and Detroit being two. But just because a 'trash' team wins does not define the team they beat as also 'trash'.

    I do believe 3 out of the top 4 Western Conference teams are going to have a hard time holding on to their spots come end of season. Will they overachieve this year? Probably so. I'd love to be wrong, and the Blazers finish with the number 1 seed, but I have a lot more basketball to watch before I can come to that conclusion.

    I agree that Golden State is not the team they have been in the past few years. And I do really enjoy 4 out of the bottom 5 Western Conference teams are from California.

    Don't ever lose that eternal optimism, Eric. There's a lot of ups and downs throughout the season. It's great having fans like you that are always seeing the Blazers in a positive light.

    NBA taking away two picks from Philly as punishment for tampering during FA discussions with PJ Tucker and Danuel House.

    How is this not punishing two potential draftees in addition to Philly?

    Second-round picks being foregone doesn't hurt players--they're no better off than UDFA's; arguably even worse off since the UDFA's can choose any team with a roster spot.

    It would only be foregone first-round picks that hurt a player, given the first-round-pick salary slotting.

    they still miss out on an experience of being called up on draft night. you think trendon would not have traded places with jabari on his night? to this day, wes matthews talks about how disappointed he was.

    And we could see how excited Jabari was to be picked.

    Thanks man. That was a good post. So how many of next 3 do you think we'll win? I think 2. 3 would mean we're "for real."

    I'll tell you what you need to admit, that this is still an extremely small sample size and we don't know who anyone is yet. So you definitely can't be sure that last year's champions have completely fallen off. They don't look as good but they will look better.

    You also need to admit that you troll so often and refuse to break from your trolling character, that no one in here knows when it's your honest opinion or your homer trolling character. It's so inconsistent that your word means very little in this forum. You've admitted at times that you are trolling but won't say when. You just don't have a lot of credibility, so when you say stuff like the Warriors are trash I don't know if that's you having a real and shitty take or if you're trolling. So enjoy the words that you so often type out in this forum meaning absolutely nothing.

    But you don't truly believe the Mavs lost that game BECAUSE of Luka, right?

    Maybe because he is the Mavs. The team around him isn't very good.
