    Nurk is low key pissed at stotts.

    Nurk was just asked if he wanted to be back on this team and he said "in the right situation".

    STOTTS IS GONE.

    Blazers won this series by +54 points with Nurk on the floor. We lost by -51 with Nurk off the floor. And that’s with Jokic on the floor at the same time as Nurk.

    Many times this season I felt the team had quit on Stotts. It was like a war between that and Dame's awesome leadership that kept us afloat.

    "What is the right situation"

    "I don't know, but this is not it"

    WOW.

    I think the logic was, and I agree with it... Nurk will foul out way to soon guarding Jokic, protecting the paint AND picking up offensive fouls (like he did today on one of his few rolls to the hoop). And we can’t survive defensively without Nurk on Jokic. But I do love having the offense flow through Nurk a lot.

    I could understand that. I'm not sure he's coachable, first of all. Second of all, if the changes happen in the front office and coach, I'm not sure the new guard will want him. Does he give you enough to be worth the uncertainty? I think probably not.

    Dame was godly, CJ was atrocious. Nurk's raw stats weren't mind-blowing, but his impact was huge when you look at +/-

    Wow, Nurk said at least 3 times in that post game presser that he's going to talk to his agent about things. Sounds like Nurk wouldn't mind a change of scenery if Stotts is still coach.

    We also got annihilated on the boards. Every time we were lucky enough to get a stop we allowed a rebound.

    Hmmm, perhaps a competent backup Center would have been worth investigating? But of course Olshey has cornered the market on 6’3” guards.
