    I thought Olshey came on the year before Dame? Or am I thinking of Stotts and Olshey was here for yeas before? Wasnt Blakes last stint with us, Dames rookie and second year?

    Im asking because I dont recall, not that im questioning you.

    Blake did 05 then from 07 to 09 then then back for 2010 and back for 2014-15.
    But this is silly.
    Steve Blake was always a journeyman player who played many places.
    Ed Davis could absolutely end up here again. Olshey signed him in LA and here didn't he?

    Edit- Wrong LA sorry.

    Im too lazy at the moment. Haha
    Your a better man than i.

    I dont think he did with ed. I could be wrong. Ed was a laker and no came from the clippers.

    Journeyman or not. I just don't see no’s ego allowing ed to come back because the question would be why did you let him go then?

    I didn't even get it right anyway. Who cares?
    I would be cool to have Ed Davis back.

    I'm pretty sure Steve Blake played with the Chris Kaman, Victor Claver era roster last stint here....I think that was either Dame's rookie year or the year after...didn't check...but that was Olshey

    I don't know if you're reading things right or not, but you're certainly editing out most of the context of what I said which essentially distorts it:

    "how better is the bench going to be if Hood, Kanter, and Curry leave? At this point, I think Portland may lose 2 of the 3. I also wonder if Aminu will be re-signed. Portland may take a step back this summer"

    Aminu was only part of what I said. For instance if the Blazers 'lose' Hood, Curry, and Aminu next season, yeah, that could be a significant step back., especially considering that Nurkic may miss a big part of the season as well. I mean, by winshares, Nurkic, Aminu, Curry, & Hood accounted for 17 winshares. That's nearly a 3rd of the 53 wins Portland had. They aren't going to offset that with a 25th pick and vet minimum contracts

    Right, but Olshey never let him go, then brought him back. He was let go by someone else.

    I didn't read this 76 page thread.

    I have 2 words: Free throws.

    Blazers missed 13 of them.

    Seriously, WTF?

    They keep coming up with new ways to lose.
