    Its a psychological game. Blazers are owned by GS, and Dame is leading in that.

    Was a fun run to get to the WCF, but man it sucks to be discarded because they basically quit.

    It wasn’t Meyers as much as Chief and Harkless.

    He played bad. Hes still being keyed in in like a MFer. I know you dint pay attention to defense like that, but if he had competent frowards and a head coach that knew how to run an actual offense, he could easily be the best player on a championship team.

    He didn't quit. He is just tired. Its been a long season/postseason. His shots just didnt fall. It is what it is man.

    We lucked out with the bracket and Dame going apeshit in round one, but he shot his load and got to feeling himself too much after dad dicking Westbrick. Denver absolutely choked in game 7.

    Blazers missed 13 ft's and lost by 11. CJ missed 5 Kind of crazy that the team has fallen apart at the line in the play offs.

    I think he was referring to Harkless/Aminu in this instance...

    I personally think they all believed they hit their ceiling by getting to the WCF. The way they played shows they are thinking about fishing and vacation more than game 3 and gaining respect around the league

    we definitely over performed this year, im happy with the improvement - but its a daylight between where we are atm and being able to take that next step.

    i know meyers had a decent game, but the 10.5M we're paying him plus 17.8M for Turner is in all honesty costing us that 'extra' player that would likely make that difference.

    we've been up against it with nurk and enes being injured, and done remarkably well considering, but we are REALLY missing that third piece - some say nurk is it? maybe, but someone like (even though i hate him) paul george is what we really need to move the needle.

    aminu, hood, curry, layman, kanter, are all FA next year.

    ET, Harkless, Meyers, are all in their final year and are a $41M in combined salary just in those 3.

    obviously some changes are upcoming, it's going to be interesting to see how it all washes out.

    The Blazers almost absolute unwillingness to do anything but walk the ball up the court and play against an always set Warrior defense. .. does not seem smart.

    They will need all the rest they can get. Bucks are the best team in the NBA. Raptors won't get swept though.

    We shot the ball well in the first half and played like we weren't scared. Then we knew they would play better in the second half and played soft and scared.

    How about

    "Hey Blazer fans, the best fans in the fucking nation, the team just quit on you on your own home court" Didn't give a shit.

    Nah, the dude quit. No excuses for that. His body language says it all. He should be pushing himself to exhaustion to the point where he has to call for a sub. He wasnt doing that today.
