    This is easily his best offseason.

    Four guys who really didn't help much during the playoff run:
    Aminu
    Harkless
    Leonard
    Turner

    They had their moments, but they were unreliable and at times they were a liability out on the floor. In one summer he has taken those four guys and he has added/retained

    Whiteside
    Bazemore
    Hood
    Little
    Hezonja

    Obviously there's still some questions about who will be the starting power forward, and who will be the backup center until Nurk comes back, but this has been a stellar offseason so far. He has maintained our core, kept our young studs, and added players at key positions. Nice job Neil!

    I disagree strongly! You refuse to recognize that Meyers led 5 categories in the WCF and scored 5 consecutive swish3s against GSW in what could have been a win.
    Neil will have given away the 2020 NBA Championship if this major mistake Whiteside deal goes tnrough. So CANCEL it Neil, or deserve criticism rather than praise!

    Agree. I've had my moments of disappointment with Olshey and Stotts.

    This offseason change has been made for the better. I am truly excited about our chances and potential for advancing to the finals! :cheers:

    No! This Whiteside trade is by far the most destructive step that Neil has made for the Blazers! Neil and Terry should review it and cancel before it is finalized.

    I just talked with Meyers and wife and they are very happy to be going to a sunny climate! New horizons are part of the journey!

    At least now we have a reason to watch Heat games again.

    Should be a fun matchup.

    To actually get someone for the worst player to ever play on our team (Meyers). MAJOR props.

    Still wont apologize for 2016 ever. But props for this.

    Interesting perspective.

    I'm glad that I don't have to watch a poor mans Matt Bonner on my favorite team anymore, its been 7 fucking years.

    This might be blasphemy to mention but... this is also the first offseason with a hands off owner...

    Relax Elle, and consider this an excellent opportunity to work on your tan......you’re taking this way too hard, especially considering how much money Meyers brings home......

    Very impressive indeed! We kept salary flexibility for next summer as well as the personnel upgrades you list. We have development of our youth which I expect to help next season. Hoping DameCJ all do a bit of load management and can be at full strength entering the playoffs.

    Go Blazers!
