    Come summer, everyone is available except Dame & Ed.

    Ed is a great role player I love having. Strikes me as a “glue” guy.

    CJ, redundant and inconsistent.
    Nurk, Nic Batum in a bigger package.

    Trade ‘em. Trade ‘em all.

    Sorry, but this is a Twilight Zone episode and nobody is getting off. Maybe Terry, but as long as Neil is in charge and Allen buys his crap.... That's it, bro.

    Terry is destroying these young players. Meyers never developed because of him. Neither did Vonleh. Neither will Swanigan or Collins.

    It is incredibly frustrating to get so emotionally and financially invested in this team year after year only to have the same shit happen every season. Mediocrity is a bitch. And it's impossible to get out with this dumbass front office at the helm.

    "Year 3 of a 5 year rebuild." Quit lying, damnit. Neil fucked us over royally.

    I really hope Dame doesn't ask out. He has got to be even more annoyed with this roster.

    I think it’s time for a new coach. I think Terry is a good veterans coach, but he hasn’t really developed anyone. Outside of Dame and CJ, who were considered NBA ready, most of our rookies have plateaued hard. That has to be on the coaches.

    Look at that roster Snyder is rolling with. Not one 20 ppg scorer. Stotts is not good enough.

    You don't sign Evan Turner for the last 4 years of a rebuild and pay him $18M each year.

    They got 5 guys that are more reliable than our third scorer though, plus defense. We dont have a Mitchell, Burks, Gobert, Ingles, or Favors as a 3rd option.

    Jesus. Burks, Ingles, etc. Are no more talented than the guys Stotts has.

    Ingles is painfully unathletic, yet Harkless kept cheating off of him. He doesn't even run around to get open. We literally just forgot him. Stotts never adjusted.

    Too many switches. Bad defensive scheme if you ask me.

    I'm just ready for a change. I like Terry, I think he's a decent coach, but I think this team needs a new look.

    Funny because on O-Live on the studs over there said Portland doesn't need all those draft picks because they take too long to make an impact. Even Neil O-shit could get lucky every once in a while if he would have kept his picks and just did a little better research.

    I have never understood why a team that really has only 2 true scorers is last in the league in fast break points? You would thinking picking up cheap baskets would only help a team like Portland. I know they have all kinds of defensive problems among other problems, but come on already.

    One of the most frustrating things to me is we already know Neil won’t even entertain deals for CJ, Dame(rightfully so), or Collins. Nurk, Shabazz, Ed are all free agents this off season. Neil says he plans to make some changes this off season, but the only “assets” we will have that aren’t free agents and he’s willing to move are Harmless, ET, Aminu, Leonard, Layman, Swanigan, and a late 1st rd pick....

    Who the fuck is going to want to give up anything of real value for that trash? It sure seems like this team will look almost exactly the same for at least another entire year. It kills me.

    Okay one last rant for tonight. How can a team in about the same spot in their rankings as Portland go out and trade 6 players at the deadline while Portland settles for just tax relief? The question is simple and we all know why...Cavs won't settle for anything than a championship while Portland has no such goals. And anyone who thinks Portland really has those goals, explain their theory over the last 5 years on how aspired through trades, signings and draft picks to achieve this.
