    Could we seriously get blown out of every single remaining game without him losing his job? I mean, it's not like this draft is worth tanking for. Scoot would be runaway #1 pick if he was declaring this year.

    Around All star break seems like a good time for a departure.

    You’re telling me this pointless thread got more traction than my thread, which is actually offering up a candidate option at HC?

    So one is what will it take to get him fired and one is how long a leash he should have?
    Hmmmmm sound kind of like the same question? I guess you could say it’s different but I’m not sure you could sell that at Walmart.

    Avoid the dreaded "fire the Coach". Chauncey has vast NBA experience he wants to share with Portland. Simply move Billups up the ranks to VP of something Blazery. Then give a new coach an opportunity to run something other then a 2-3 zone with PG's on the baseline providing hopelessly futile defense around the basket.

    While that sounds great, I doubt Chauncey would agree to it, unless he’s just done with coaching entirely. Chauncey was going to get a FO job anywhere honestly, my thought for why we picked him was because he wanted to coach more than be an executive.

    If he wanted a FO role though, I’d love to keep him. Still a HOF PG, still will offer a lot of insight for Scoot.

    As opposed to making 15 threads about that one word?

    This thread is just another lane in the Chauncey highway.

    And no, Chauncey is not a highway, and I do not want to ride it all night long.

    Different questions demanding different answers. One was asked at the beginning of the season, one is an incredulous response to him not being fired yet. And one has a poll, too.
    Fortunately I wouldn't set foot in Walmart.

    Wow, mistaking a word for a person is even more of a mental illness. Look up the "use/mention" distinction.

    Question #1: So when will the temperature in Portland get back above freezing?

    Question #2: Will the temps get back to freezing tomorrow, the next day, or sometime after that?

    Yeah... totally different questions. lol. Come on bro.

    Ever heard Stephen Colbert tell the joke about how no one should complain about helping Ukraine and it doesn’t matter if gas went up to $10 a gallon but ended with saying because he owned a Tesla? That’s what you sound like right now lol.

    Except the whole point of his joke was “yeah I’m a piece of shit because I’m this detached from the real world”. You sound serious lol.
