    If he comes out and sells that, fans might buy in. Fuck the Lakers.

    You know it's bad when basically the entire board is in agreement.

    doesn't work that way. Ant isn't getting re-signed right now. Neither is Nurkic

    they will have new contract next season. RoCo has an expiring contract so that cap clearance was already on the books. So it then is an equation of Powell's salary vs the combined salaries of Winslow, Johnson, and Bledsoe's guarantee. That's only saving 6.3M in space

    If I were conducting a driving test and the driver in question ran a red light 30 seconds in, I wouldn't need to complete the rest of the exam to know that I wasn't going to give that kid their license.

    Cronin needs to go back to GM-ed, 'cause he's already failed his first attempt.

    I would like to defend this trade...but of course I can't. Head scratcher all the way. Not really a rebuild trade and not at all a trade to make us better now. Not even a 1st round pick which still would have made this trade a fail. Life as a Blazers fan. Sorry guys.

    Cannot wait for him to dump Lillard for Al Horford and a 2026 2nd rounder because he has to pay Ant and Nurk.

    I didn’t say I wanted Neil.
    Hindsight being 50/50, we know the two options are…

    Keep Neil until offseason, then fire him.
    OR
    (Do what we did) and fire him, Cronin interim, and look for a full time GM in the off-season.

    Given those are the options, I miss Neil. He never would’ve done this stupid shit.

    If you were going to make a deal this bad, would you allow anything to leak beforehand?

    There is another trade coming for a player better than either RoCo or Powell, and the other team wanted something that we got in today's trade.
