    On the Aldridge thing; is it possible that Olshey let his giant ego and his need to be eternally positive get in the way of his decision-making? Did he think he was such a persuasive guy that Aldridge would never leave? Could he not accept in his mind a negative outcome, so he ignored all signs that portended that negative outcome?

    Your argument didn't mention anything about rings, or anything else that wasn't hyperbolic.

    Because no one was talking about anyone that had rings, until you brought up pop. (Though Stotts technically has one as an assistant).
    If we’re talking about Pop or someone with a long history of success that’s obviously a lot different than situation we’re talking about here.

    I made a deal with Gronk Brady and I always honor my bets. I'm not going anywhere.

    What a silly post. NO did EXACTLY what we wanted him to, do EVERYTHING he could to get TT to stay. There were VERY FEW people in here who wanted to trade Aldridge.
    I'm not sure if you were in that camp. That is much more on TT than it is NO.

    I can't believe this Aldridge garbage is even being rehashed once again. It's been about 3 years now and some people have a hard time moving on.

    Phoenix was one of the teams he listed as being interested in, but I don't think it ever got very far. lakers, Rockets, Heat and Mavericks were also interested.

    Yes sir!
    Neil and Paul I think are on the same page, and that is a good thing for Portland TB fan's!
    It's pretty clear that their plan was to coincide with GS & Cleveland trending downwards in 2020, and they would be in the next wave of teams that can contend. No guarantee's though, which is just fine, as its part of the game and challenge. But having a solid owner, GM, Coaching staff, sure will improve the odds of succeeding.
    The NBA is FANtastic!

    Bing Bango Bongo baby!
