    Man, I don't get you sometimes. You rightfully were sour all last summer, seemed to be pretty damn positive most of the season, and are now back to being bitter again. Maybe even more so than last summer despite much better results.

    How is saying trading ET for AD would make me say that NO is the best GM in the history of sports sour?

    I think an AD trade will be in the next few days. Hopefully it’s a surprise team.

    I don't think i'm all that bitter though. Sure I don't want the Blazers to be involved with making the Lakers good, but that's because I don't like the Lakers.
    I didn't want the Raptors to win, but I've said why.

    The only way that ends better is with the finale from "Blazing Saddles."

    Nah, it's not the Raptors thing either. You've been very down on the Blazers since the sweep (I was super pissed about it too).

    The only thing I'm down about the Blazers with is mental, I believe that GS literally mentally beat the heck out of the Blazers, they looked like a broken basketball team to me. Now thankfully it looks like the Warriors as we know it are probably done, so it may not matter. I still just don't get how they don't manage to win one of those games they were up by 17+, I just don't get it. Their year was pretty good though and without Nurk it was impressive to get the WCF's.

    All seem pretty plausible. I think Kemba's staying in Charlotte, though. From what he said today, he's kind of taken a Dame approach there.

    Well, they were pretty physically broken, too. Dame's ribs were messed up, just like Looney's in the finals. Kanter was playing hurt and weakened. Rodney wasn't 100 percent. And, yeah, there was the mental aspect, too, absolutely.

    Most of these same players, though, were left for dead after being swept by the Pelicans two years ago. Everyone left us for dead after Nurk was injured. Was anyone picking us to win Game 7 in Denver?

    I think the Blazers have earned the benefit of the doubt when it comes to overcoming or rebounding from emotional adversity.

    I think he’d be crazy to stay in Charlotte, they’ve done nothing to help him win.

    Fair enough, but I think it was more about the Warriors than the Denver's of the world, it was like GS would make a run and they'd get in the fetal position.
    I do have a lot of trust in Dame that he can rally them when healthy, but man that was brutal to watch.
