    Conspiracy theory: the decisions of McGowan to leave and Neil to be fired were made months ago after the Billups press conference fiasco. The team has just been waiting long enough to not look reactionary.

    Wouldnt it be something if Neil switched roles or similar too Hankins had with the Vulcan mothership. If Bert likes Neils management style and they dont have enough credible evidence to fire him, they re-assign him.

    Either stop with the conjecture or show us how. He's giving us a narrative without showing us the work he put into getting this answer. Grain meet salt.

    relocate where? Seattle games were as empty as Ben Simmons shooting ability before they moved.

    The idea of relocation is far fetched. It's not happening given the league's current state. If anything, I foresee expansion which would preclude any potential move. And why would they? Solid revenue streams here, history, decent on floor product--- there's no reason to. If any team potentially moves, it's gonna be the Pels and even that is a pipedream. The notion of relocation is a tired old boogeyman that died in 2007. Only people bringing it up are trolls. Pay them no attention.

    And in my estimation, with the new TV deal looming, I don't see Jody selling now before valuation gets even higher.

    Hard to get her more engaged, which is the root of the problem. If you're gonna use a hands off approach, you gotta hire the right people to delegate to. Doesn't appear these two were it.

    Per Forbes' latest rankings, we're the 13th most valuable franchise in the league. It's not going anywhere.

    Hopefully the Hollywood video guy buys the team.

    Free red ropes for all!

    Lmao, first Canzano and now Jason Quick. Fire these two guys now! I have been around long enough to know how many times they have consistently put out negative articles attacking everything from shitting on Paul Allen, former coach’s and players over the past 20 years.

    Crumbling franchise Jason Quick said, give me a break. These two media guys are the biggest cancer around open up your eyes!

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    And if any other reporters/columnists come to the same conclusion, fire them too! The message must be controlled. The Blazers' march to championship glory is unabated.
