    if the investigation is to discover if Olshey is an asshole, it's a sham because that's already established fact

    Seems like a game of chicken. Maybe the Blazers gambled that Olshey would just quietly resign when he was told the investigation was coming. Failing that, go for firing with cause of an abusive culture. (That sure sounds a lot better than firing him for being incompetent for a fucking decade. I mean, if you fire him for that you have to admit you've allowed him to be incompetent for a decade.)

    Olshey didn't quit, though, maybe because he realizes there aren't going to be a lot of teams lining up for his services given how shitty he's been at building around Dame, especially after the disastrous 2016 contracts. And he sounds like an asshole, so maybe there might not be a lot of business opportunities through his network. So getting legit bought out is his only real source of big money in the future. Unless he can get another soap opera gig.

    Olshey preferred to get his name dragged through the mud and still get paid. I guess I don't blame him, since his reputation was worthless anyway.

    And I don't blame the Blazers for trying. Olshey wasted so much of the Blazers' money, they figured why not recoup a little. They could've then told themselves the Blazers have done just dandy for the past 10 years, but it's just a shame Olshey was such a jerk. Maybe they'd also get some good PR by making a social statement about workplace misbehavior. Maybe it would help wash the stink off from the Billups rape allegation.

    Regardless, the point of chicken is that somebody has to swerve. If nobody does, it ends badly for everyone. I can't see how this ends with Olshey still employed, or the Blazers not paying him.

    They actually don't. The cap hit got stretched out but that doesn't mean the payments did too.

    No. Nicholson got all his money several years ago per the terms of his player contract. The NBA just allows teams to spread the money out over several years on their salary CAP calculation. They are 2 separate things.

    Semantics. Cant use the money either way….whether he was paid or still needs to get paid…

    moot point.

    we had word of this that the investigation was actually supposed to conclude on the 5th. That's two weeks ago. Neil met with the law firm on Tues/Wed.

    How is this still not done yet? Take a decision already. I'm ready to move on from it.
