    I don’t work for CSN or NBC or whatever they are called now. I work for the team. I also don’t follow any local media on any social media platform except Freeman.

    He looks like a shooter alright.

    On another note: It bugs me when they show a guy shooting free throws on highlight vids. Unless it's a game winner, a free throw is not a highlight.

    Come on, Dwight. Ask the followup. The worry with Wade is for next summer-- not this one.

    Neil's "look" is more cringeworthy than Aldridge's "you know."

    Hey, give Dwight credit--he actually asked about the trade exception. But big shock, Neil's already making excuses for why it won't get used.

    Ya, he ain't using that TPE. Too much chatter about tax implications etc. Building those excuses already.

    ugh

    Do you like Kerry Eggers? He's the best local guy imo.

    Stauskus played on the worst 76ers team of all time (and that's saying something), where he was injured a lot, then last year for the Nets. I'm going to hold out judgement on him for the reason you stated: Nic really should get much better looks spotting up on the Blazers, and his shooting stroke is marvelous.

    :cheers:

    Eggers and Freeman are the only two worth reading (at least that I can think of).

    Who don't post on this board of course. You're all marvelous.

    I think he’s got 14-15 days still? I’m not sure but I’m withholding my complaints until then.

    I couldn't care less whether NO uses the TPEs or not. All I want is results and that basically means finding a wing or PF upgrade. If he can do it by trade, great because there are fewer salary issues. That said, I'm not going to be shocked if he stands pat with what he's done so far this off-season. I won't be happy, but I won't be shocked.

    Tell the world he has a fat-ass contract and admit he’s amongst the NBA’s most overpaid?

    After telling us how big of an asset it is for a year you wouldn’t care if he doesn’t use it?

    Like I said, all I care about is results. I thought he was blowing smoke when he made those claims. I think that he thought the combination of cap relief plus the Blazers' first rounder would attract a deal, but that blew up on draft day.

    On paper, the roster as it stands is worse than the one that was swept out of the playoffs in April. And it's more expensive as a results of some extensions.

    lost: Ed, Shabazz, Pat
    got: Curry, Stauskas, Simons, Trent

    Internal improvement be damned, but this notion that we got worse is fairly irrefutable.

    He's either a terrible negotiator or the league has gotten smarter in general. Probably a bit of both.

    I understand the results are what matters more than anything, but I do find it annoying he kept telling us it was valuable asset but isn’t going to use it, that’s not good business. I care about the results too, but it does annoy me at least a little bit.

    This team has a very real chance of not making the playoffs next year.

    Agreed, and I honestly wouldn't be surprised.

    That’s true of every Western Conference team except the Warriors and Rockets (barring injuries). It’s going to be a dogfight this year.
