    Btw…. Tomorrow’s film will show how Larry left Zach Lavine wide open for 3. Nass was caught on the screen and he did not switch.

    1. we started blitzing P&R more and played a pseudo zone to clog up the lane. larry and Ant both got steals off it. while it wasn't some grand difference, it was enough to make them uncomfortable, and we are all too familiar with how rigid Donovan is in adjusting his game plans. (he's one of the few coaches who Stotts repeatedly outsmarted).

    2. lighting a fire under guys IS what coaching is about. we had a fucking robot on the sidelines the past decade. this is a welcome change.

    Watching this team is driving me insane, but I do love walking out of the Moda Center after a win, so whatever.

    my guess is they were bitching more after game 4 than they were before game 1

    Absolutely. Always the loudest after we get bounced.

    Except for the fact that the Olshey haters are more righteous.

    That's certainly an opinion. I always feel like the anit-coach crowd is the most righteous, but there is no way of proving it one way or the other.

    Probably just depends on if you agree with the opinion or not on how righteous you feel the group is.

    The Warriors roster for example. The only center they play is 6'9" Kevon Looney, averaging 17 minutes per game and makes $5 million.
    The starting center for the Wizards is 6'9" Daniel Gafford and the backup is 6'7" Montrezl Harrell.

    I just don't think Roco should play 4 with a three guard lineup ever. We give up way too much size. Roco with Nas at 3 is OK or Roco at 3 with Nance at 4.

    From what I’m watching I think billups is a good coach.
    That was the most collective fight this team has shown in years

    I dispute that

    I'm an Olshey hater, but unlike the vague generalization earlier, I have never rooted for Portland to lose. Never

    Btw…. Let’s not dwell on it too much. If it wasn’t for Nance we would’ve lost by 20

    Only time I'm happy with a Blazer loss is when we've been eliminated from the playoffs and it helps our lottery position. Even then, I can't root for them to lose during the game.

    I want us to win a championship under Olshey, that would be amazing!

    I want to be 33 again and have Jessica Alba give me a million dollars and 60 year old single malt scotch for boffing her. (she should probably wait till after the boffing for the scotch)
