    Mdidnt they fonish third in the east last uear? Not saying they were actrue contender, but based on the national media we are a frimge playoff team.

    Point being unless we are elite isnt it a well known thought that no matter who the gm is he cant get vet free agents that can mke a dofference to come here?

    Tyreke went to Memphis for $2.5M in the summer of 2017...

    James Johnson went to a mediocre Miami team in 2016 for the minimum. It would've been hard to keep those guys but he doesn't convert on vets in the same way he does on younger players.

    Those aren't Olshey type of guys though. James Johnson had been arrested for domestic violence and even though the charges were dismissed he had character issues. Tyreke had injury issues and hadn't yet proven that he could shoot 3 pointers well.

    I'm not saying that Olshey was right or wrong not to sign those guys but I can see why he didn't. There is a reason why both of those guys signed so cheap those years.

    So if he doesn't get EVERY SINGLE "under the radar" guys that mean he's not good at finding them ? Come on now.

    I love how you pay no attention to the point I'm trying make. Read bro. I'm saying he's good at finding young players in that mold, but not veterans.

    Tonight my main thought on who needed to play more was why isnt Layman playing more why does it seem not to matter how good he’s playing. Meyers isnt used to that many minutes and clearly was getting abused by Olynk towards the end. Meyers played well for a while this isnt a shot at him.

    Not that Jake is scottie pippen but I think his body and athleticism was perfect for a match up with Olynk too.

    He was scoring. We kind of needed more of that in the last half of the 4th. Not in garbage time.

    And by the way: there's several other people who's lack of defense contributed to this loss, besides Stauskas.

    Bro, they were exactly what we paid for them. They were bench pieces, and Mo was extremely overrated here (awful defense, inefficient, didnt get to the line, etc). We paid $5M a year for Kaman which is now worth like $9M a year.

    5 points in 13 minutes... He giving up more points than he was scoring. His defense is overlooked.

    Someone told me it was 4 points in 7 minutes.

    Still, at least he's reliable in crunch time. Someone else wasn't.....

    Outside of Collins, is there a single Blazer this year you could say is playing good defense?

    Nobody. Turner made a nice turnover, but besides Collins.....shrug.

    There wouldn't have been crunch time if we played him more because of how many more points they would've scored.
