    Our roster has a salary cap. Okay, I get it. Paul's money is only so useful when it comes to players.

    There is no salary cap for staff and front office.

    It seems to me, having a great coach and a solid staff is just as important as having good players. Why has Paul never thrown a disgusting amount of money at a great coach?

    I want Brad Stevens. I don't care what it costs. Find out what his number is and give it to him. That guy has made so many mediocre players look serviceable, and I want that in Portland.

    Paul doesn't want a strong willed GM. He likes low key kiss asses. It is a turn on to him for some reason. Probably why they went through 3 GM's in 3 years.

    Paul says Neil Olshey has the golden gut.

    Why are we pretending to know the inner workings of what goes on behind the scenes. Were clueless to how that all goes down. Olshey is a salesman.

    Don't we have that in Portland? Stotts is not the problem. He's reigning Coach of the Month. And Brad Stevens is overrated. Just got blown out at home on national TV by team with 4 new players just getting to know each other. How many championships has Stevens won? At any level. Stotts has an NBA championship ring.

    Selective bias at it's best.

    Just for shits and giggles, what did we lose to tonight? I'm really intrigued.

    Solid post though.

    Luc Longley has 3 more than Karl Malone, Charles Barkley and Elgin Baylor. What's your point?

    Is Tyron Lue a better coach than Jerry Sloan?

    Please tell me why he'd leave Boston. He's probably at his dream job already.

    Forget Brad Stevens. There are other guys in the NBA who is vastly underrated like Snyder from last night, or Eric Spoelstra.

    Terri still isn't the problem, though. It's this damn roster. Getting blue in the face bitching about Neil.

    Then take a moment, chill out and breathe.....

    Because we are getting red in the face reading your regurgitation of your opinion over and over. ;)

    What about the Spurs shooting coach?
    Elite level big man coach\ex player?
    A smart,hard working, defensive minded assistant coach (like Tom Thibodeau was in Boston) ?
