    The Warriors go into the 4th in a tight game tied with 10 mins left and end up winning by 20.
    That is the difference right now between the Blazers and a contender.
    Blazers have some improvements to make. Both to their play and their roster.

    either CJ or Powell for some sort of starting caliber player above 6'7. just a no brainer move to make.

    That building was dead - they were booing their own player (Bagley) early in the fourth. We’ve gotten lit up twice by a joke franchise. I don’t care what we are trying to work through as far as systems - on pure talent, that can’t happen. I want to have hope, desperately, but I just watched that game.

    Exactly. We were beating these types of teams when supposedly we were running a bad system.

    No seriously, it has to be CJ. Having CJ and Dame start in the back court together is horrendous defensively. You have to get rid of CJ, it's weird for a nice guy to be called this but he's a cancer. He doesn't see his flaws, he presses when he shouldn't, he calls halfass effort full effort and he has the support of everyone around him. Let him go someplace where people are going to call out his bullshit and demand more of him. Get him the fuck off of our team!

    Who's responsible for telling CJ: "It's not working tonight. Quit shooting. Pass the ball. Quit trying to be a hero and stick to what's been working thus far"? Anyone who does that deserves a raise.

    -17 tonight. By far the worst on the team.

    I didn’t even watch the game today, but sounds like a typical selfish CJ game. Like I’ve said, trading CJ at this point would be addition by subtraction. This guy is so damn selfish and just doesn’t understand NBA basketball. Anything they get for him in a trade would be an upgrade/bonus.

    I would not call him a cancer. That's too harsh

    however, Olshey's total blind commitment to CJ as Portland's starting SG has been the 7 year roadblock to any chances Portland has had to be a contender

    You're right. Nurk, Norm and Dame getting CJ's touches and shots, along with Nas or Larry starting for him would improve the team. That being said, CJ is a terrific scorer and a good passer when he wants to be, so we should be able to get a good player in return for him. Again though, if we can only get expiring contracts and/or solid role players for CJ, we would be much much better off.

    Great to see Nurk unlocked.

    Can some one tweet CJ? He CAN pass the ball. He can go for 8a per game if he wants. His hero ball is not answer for this team to win on regular basis.

    CJ, you turning into Melo.
