    There were a few people on O-Live who also wanted to trade Aldridge prior to that season. However, it had nothing to do with his contract they just didn't like him as a player. They had been saying the same thing every summer before that too.

    You can't force the truth out of a reclusive liar. Get real.

    We can only blame TT for his lie. Stop blaming NO for trying to do what you wanted, convince TT to stay.

    Were you ever in the "trade Aldridge before he bolts" camp?

    Not in either. Just sick of people being so adamant that they are right on something that no one has all the facts on, especially when their counter argument is that the opposition is a speculation... such blatant double standards I find it hard to zip my lip at times. I am like you in that regard. :)

    I don't blame NO, but I also don't care for his sleazy spins. I blame Lamarsha and his weak mindset. If he was tougher inside there never would have been an internal argument within him.

    However....

    To stand by while an atrocity takes place and you become an accomplice. ;)

    I respect most opinions... what I don’t respect is people who think Blazers fans deserve less, and don’t think anyone should be held accountable for the complete and utter failure of getting swept in the 1st round of the playoffs. I don’t have all of the answers, but I believe in accountability in life. The Blazers failed because someone didn’t do their job, so someone needs to take the fall to show fans the that they deserve better... I don’t respect some Neil Olshey fanboy making excuses for everything...

    The reason everyone is fixated on Aldridge is...nothing has happened since. If Olshey had been active, like a normal GM, there would have been so many fixes and transactions, we would have forgotten Aldridge and moved on to better things. But since Olshey doesn't believe in working for his paycheck, all we have to talk about in the last 50 or 100 years is the Aldridge event.

    If my History teacher had been Olshey, History would have been the easiest subject in school. Nothing to study except Aldridge. Olshey is a big bore.

    What are you talking about? I can see HCP in the photo riding his lawnmower while reading today’s LA Times sports page.

    Don't worry buttercup. You quit with the bullshit and we won't have any issues.

    By the way, your use of "we" indicates you put yourself in a group. :cheers:

    We've been invaded by traitors who oppose improving the Blazers. No problem. The board needs summer posts from wherever it can find them. Sly brilliantly invited his former buddies from O-Live, and will ban them when the board gets hot again in September. This is a good money-making strategy, and I want Denny to invite all Laker trolls to post here all summer.

    Huh? Olshey completely remade the starting lineup after Aldridge left... and we made the playoffs when nobody thought we would.

    Since the quickie patch job a week after Aldridge left (when he got some career substitutes by paying them their career highs), the only change has been the Plumlee-Nurkic trade (when he traded a starter for a malcontent sub, no talent required there). Olshey trades only when economics forces him. Never to simply improve the team.
