    Looking at Dame with all his tattoos, did not think for a bit that he scared of needles.

    He’s not playing for a draft pick and he’ll be back in 30 days. Joe knows the players wont tank and either will Chauncey. So stop with all the tank bs!

    Loyalty. I'm wondering if Loyalty has destroyed the Blazers. I'm not sure, but it's a working theory.

    Dame being loyal to Stotts cost us years.
    Dame being loyal to CJ.
    Dame playing for years with an injury to stay loyal to his team, and teammates.
    Dame giving everything each year, and exhausted in the playoffs.
    Neil being loyal to CJ.
    Neil being loyal to Stotts.
    Neil being loyal to players he drafted.

    idk if destroyed is the word, I’ve enjoyed the past decade or whatever it’s been a lot more than some previous eras. But I do think it kept us from taking the next step from playoff team to true contender.

    I don't buy into it.....loyalty has been a shining spot in the franchise in my view and not the 7 coaches in 7 years and superteam shuffle that's happened during that time around the league....I loved the Dame era and the stability. Way better than the Felton era ...excited for the next chapter so the theory that the Blazers have been destroyed doesn't make sense to me....longest playoff streak in the sport. Like him or not....Olshey drafted Nas and Ant....that's like winning the lottery twice at this point...Chauncey didn't inherit a garbage team...he inherited a team that needed a different look and a better defense...hopefully , we are turning that around...Like ownership or not...they did shake up the front office to start the season.

    No, Olshey is who fucked the Blazers and it's really not that debatable. Neil wasn't loyal to CJ he was loyal to his ego, same with other players he drafted. Dame being loyal to Stotts and CJ might have hurt a bit, but it was worth it in exchange for Dame being loyal to the Blazers. It was Olshey who fucked the Blazers and to a lesser extent, the serious limitations of Stotts.

    No. The treadmill team.bs is.worse.

    We are just rooting for an asset we can use to make the team better next year.

    There is Zero chance that we would do anything to get us to be a contender this year unless Cronin pulls magic out of his ass.

    No, it wasn't. Dame's loyal has been his undoing.

    I like Nas myself but my goodness he’s way overrated at this point by us. Won the lottery with him? I wouldn’t say that. His comp is Aminu at most imo. Which isn’t bad at all but it’s nothing to be super excited about. Btw I say this because his shooting is far from good enough imo

    Ok that's like your opinion bro and one that is poorly thought out I might add. If he wasn't loyal he'd be on the Lakers and that's BETTER to you?!
