    That’s a simply thread. He wait until we get 12-0 in the 3QR to ask a timeout. He must be insane.

    Just check his record in the playoffs.


    Honestly; what it takes to get him fired???????

    They're at Disney World so....

    A dead hooker in a Minnie Mouse costume would do it.

    Yes, but only because it meant he let someone into the bubble.

    An NBA finals roster that consistently doesn't make it out of the 2nd round would certainly get him fired.

    A roster that is usually 4-9th in the West in terms of talent, always makes the playoffs, and wins a playoff series every other year; added with the fact that the best player in franchise history thinks he's a great coach means his job is fairly safe. Rightfully so.

    Can't we just combine that with one of the other protests going on in Portland every night? They have signs and everything. I'll bring a sharpie!

    Dame’s retirement. They’ll go out together in 2027.

    Someone find me 1 player who has played under Stotts that left Portland and was a major contributor to that team making the NBA finals.

    Aldridge, our best player for a couple years, went to the Spurs to play for the best coach in the NBA, along side Kawhi, Gasol, Manu, and Parker. You know how many conference finals games Aldridge as won? ZERO.

    Batum, Matthews, Harkless, Aminu, Ed Davis, Barton, Crabbe, Lopez, Hendersen, Plumlee, Turner, Kanter.

    None of these guys, since leaving Portland have been on an NBA finals team. Some have had great teammates, great coaches, but the reality is, they weren't enough to take Portland to the finals and they haven't been enough anywhere else.

    This is a talent issue, not a coaching issue.

    Or more likely he was tampering to get RoLo back, and it went sideways in a hurry.

    So after the season is over lets discuss some of the ways this team can get better talent or equal talent that compliment Dame and Nurk better because despite some of the hiccups Nurk has been having, I think Dame and Nurk are both really good (Dame is great and Nurk is going to get better and better). So when we've won the title or much more likely been eliminated, we can discuss moves that will help us build around these guys.

    Also, I think Wes is about to be a contributor on a finals team but he's like their 7th option so it doesn't make your point any less valid.

    Love this. I agree about Dame/Nurk.

    I'd love to see Matthews get to the finals. But yes, he was our 3rd/4th best player on one of our more talented rosters this decade. If he was our 7th best player back then, we would've had a real shot as well.

    Google the term "murder/ suicide." Does it bother anybody that a picture of Stotts and Dame is in the top 10 results?

    The thing is, if we fire him we gotta replace him with known quality. We don’t have the luxury to pick out a young assistant looking for a shot.
