    There was some veterans in Chicago, and they all
    hated him. I have a tie to Chicago's front office. I'm not basing things off of conjecture.

    I must say I have trouble seeing Butler as a follower.

    Why should he be a follower? He’s an alpha and one of the better overall players in the league.

    I wouldn’t expect him to take a backseat to Dame, but I also think they’d get along.

    Alpha males rarely get along. Butler has too much of an alpha. Olshey has a better insight than us in regards to Butler (Its different than judging player talent, which we can all do).

    Not only that, he also demoralized his teammates (which is the opposite of our team culture) and got an ENTIRE FRANCHISE confused and bothered.

    He doesn't fit and he wouldn't want to fit. I don't see how a guy like Nurkic would stand a guy like Butler, he takes himself WAY too seriously.

    Fans are going to be pissed when the Blazers start trading to do salary dumps.

    He wants to play for the Clipper,Nets or Knicks because he wants to win a championship.

    The guy seems to be borderline insane tbh.

    You don’t need to dump it all at once... you can trade for players with slightly less salary and less years, LMAO... and no matter how emotional it makes you, it will probably happen now that the team is up for sale... that’s why a CJ for Jimmy trade makes so much sense... a new buyer would get 30 mil worth of salary off the books at year end if they choose to... making it much easier to reshape roster to their preference

    My lord, just thinking about how many bad contracts Neil gave out in such a short period of time... 10+ mil per year for dead weight in Mo and Meyers, 18 mil per for 10 pts a game off the bench from Evan Turner, and then worst of all, near 30 mil per for an undersized ISO ball chucker who doesn’t play defense in CJ... how does this guy still have a job??!
