Hopefully the rumor of him moving to Texas is true
I’d be fine with either Barry or Angie. I just want Neil gone!
High demsnd for valet drivers there
yeah...when Ainge retired from a major market where he had all the power I don't think he was thinking of a new job. I don't want a guy who's got retirement on his mind before he starts a new chapter of Blazer ball...Barry is young and connected...from one of the best basketball pedigrees around...he grew up in it. Young folks don't know yet that when you get Ainge's age...you're not exactly a bundle of energy any more...go with a youth movement and let it have room to grow..if not Barry then someone from his generation would have room to grow with the organization. You'll be replacing Ainge in short time if you hire him.
In my personal perfect scenario we would see a great new owner step up and buy the franchise in the mold of a Cuban or Balmer. A guy like Paul Allen that is very interested in the game and team and wants to build a winner. Then i would like that new owner to hire a new GM that can run the team well. Until all that can happen i would like to see Olshey either step down gracefully or they can fire and pay the guy what they owe him. Then they can hire an interim until there is new ownership and these choices can be made the right way.
Any way you look at it i would like Olshey gone and new ownership.
What owners would that be? Who's got $2 billion and would be a great owner in Portland?
Looks like Olshey is relying on his old buddy, Woj, to get his spin on the story out there:
It's sounding more and more to me like this investigation is a crock of shit.
I’m going to be sad if the investigation finds nothing and Neil is allowed to stay.
Oh dear God no
Get used to the sadness
The question remains, is Neil fired for cause (investigation proves fruitful) or is he let go and J. Allen is on the hook for Neils contract.
I think announcing the investigation has sealed NO’s fate with the franchise. It’s over. And since it’s not my money, and J. Allen is big-balls-rich, I don’t really care how the investigation ends.
NBA GMs forming association to support execs amid concerns about Blazers probe
Phil Knight? He seems to like to invest in Oregon sports.
Will never happen. Too many conflicts of interest. I believe he's also stated that he doesn't want to own a sports franchise. Maybe if his son inherits his wealth soon...
Creepy. How did you take a picture this morning of me without me knowing.
Aw, you can't even remember what we did last night?
HAHA, Quick now saying they haven’t found anything yet with regards to the investigation, the GM’s are now forming an association.
But wait, according to Quick we are a crumbling franchise lmao.
This shit is mostly being driven agenda based by Jason Quick and Canzano, the two biggest media cancers in Portland for years.
This in return is going to look bad on both of them! When are you guys going to open up you’re eyes about these two assholes!
There is a reason many players stopped talking to Quick when he was working for the Oregonian, who got let go from the Oregonian years ago. Or Canazno who isn’t allowed in Blazer press conferences.
Boycott these two along with Blazers edge and they should be fired! I like how I am doing this right now
