    It would be three losses and the last being to a 15 win team. Perfect Meltdown material right there no matter what LeBron says.

    The thread hasn't changed because Olshey hasn't changed. But maybe he has...

    The thread is going easy on Olshey right now for the same reason I am. He finally, finally did something to acquire major free agents, so I'm happy to finally have an activist GM, and waiting to see 1) whether they fail, succeed, or dump us like Arron Afflalo, and 2) whether Olshey returns to form and snoozes for the next 3 years.

    My corrections to this would be:

    Hood - Layman's minutes & development
    Kanter - Collins' minutes & development

    When viewed in that light, the cost of these additions outweighs their contributions.

    I like the young talent on the Suns. I see them being a handful in a couple years.
    Im curious to see how Nuk does against their rookie 5. Ayton?

    @Fez Forthright has been noticeably absent from his Fire Olshey campaign lately.

    So, if the Blazers get curb-stomped by OKC, will anybody change their minds about Olshey?

    Opinions on curbstomp might vary quite a bit.

    No such thing as a bad win or a good loss.

    But a seven game series would not be a curbstomp. So i guess in your mind with your response you have answered your own question. At least for you.

    I think Olshey gets another summer from me no matter what the outcome is. Hopefully if it is a curbstomping that will be the final straw needed to make a major move.

    I know we need to see post season success but I think he does deserve some credit for the Blazers being the 3rd best team in the West 2 years in a row.

    I don't like NO, but his deadline moves were really good. I'm also of the opinion that the Nurk injury gives Stotts / NO a pretty major pass for anything in the playoffs though if they're swept I think they gotta do SOMETHING sort of big to shake things up.

    Olshey brought in some great cheap pieces. Too bad we won't be able to retain them because of other bad contracts

    Speculative. There are scenarios where we retain all 3.

    Believe harder.

    Olshey wo
    Neil has strengths and weakness's like all gm's. I think many don't like him because of his persona which is ok.
    When you stand back at a glance and realize he's the architect of our current team and players, he has delivered a competitive fun, dangerous team thats still relatively young with star power. No Championship this year but thats cool, maybe Neil can take us to the next step as contenders in the next year or so?

    I hope so, but doubt it. That's why I hate bad contracts. You never know how they'll come back to bite you in the ass.

    They'll probably just start posting again....if we get swept, Olshey will fire Stotts and survive in my view

    I think Meyers, Harkless, and CJ are all movable pieces.

    That's a lot of salary.

    I admit I am pretty stubborn when my mind is made up.
