    I certainly hope so. That $13 million TPE is one of the few ways we have of adding significant talent to this roster. We'll be well over the tax threshold in 2018-19 and be a repeat offender two years after that. It's hard enough adding talent when you are over the tax threshold, but damn near impossible when you are a repeat offender.

    Paul was willing to let Neil grotesquely overspend in the summer of 2016 in a use it or loose it situation. That TPE is another use it or lose it situation. Now isn't the time to cheap out and let that TPE expire.

    CJ was Mo's replacement. I've read on this board that CJ would be a terrific 6th man ;)

    I have it on good authority that it was PA who wanted to match the RFA's 2 years ago....and not Neil. Same with Meyer's big contract.

    Well PA was right about KD.......

    paraphrased

    you can't discount all the work we did to get us to the final national stages to fail as hard as we did when it really mattered.

    there were some REALLY suspect coaching calls and a REALLY serious lack of anything resembling a plan B when the Dame/CJ isoball fest was stopped dead.

    were DEAD LAST in team assists. if you dont think that isoball is our one and only play in the playbook, you're dreaming. combine this with overpaid C grade talent signed like they are B or A grade, and the fact they basically just eat cap and roster space and are largely un-serviceable, just gives us less and less flexibility to adapt.

    1. playbook fits on a single page that is 2cm x 2cm in size - reads - GUARDS. ISO ONLY.
    2. weak coaching decisions
    3. trash large contract players that were pitched as assets which we never play

    its series like that where we really miss a LMA type player imo.

    Here's the thing: He has done some good things - but at a net loss.

    The goal isn't to make the playoffs, it's to make noise IN the playoffs and ultimately, become a contender.

    We've gone to the 2nd round twice and swept the last two seasons. How exactly is that moving in the right direction?

    I am wondering about how much of the profits a team makes make it back to the owner? I read somewhere on here that the money is shared between every team so that no matter how a team is doing the owners get paid the same? Like the owner of the warriors makes the same amount as the owner of the suns?

    The only reason I ask is maybe the fact that we almost always sell out at the moda center during the regular season that Allen is content with the business aspect of where the blazers are at? Not having to pay the luxury tax, sales are up, etc.

    Just a thought.

    Thus Olshey has ensured his job by appealing to Allen's pocket book?

    Now you're being disingenuous. You know exactly why we made the 2nd round 2 years ago. You can't expect that kind of luck every season.

    How do you expect anybody to take you serious when you post stuff like that?

    If you expected Neil to do anything in that interview except for try to save his job, that's on you. I listened to the whole thing and want my 26 minutes back.

    And why were he and Terry in there together? Some of the shady shit this team does annoys the hell out of me.

    In the thread about the interviews, I noticed they appeared jointly instead of separately to cover each other's back.

    That's called cherry picking.

    How is analyzing our entire playoff track record in the Olshey era cherry picking?

    It is what it is.

    What about the regular season? Doesn't that count for something when you're trying to denigrate a coach?

    Again, cherry picking is picking only the facts are a particular slice of reality that fits your point of view.

    Oh, and what's Jack Nicolson got to do with this? Weak sauce.

    How exactly is that different from what you're doing in your defense of Terry?
