    Pretty sure POR is supposed to be losing this year. You want a lotto pick or not? SAS and Pops, arguably the best of all time, didn't get Wemby by playing beautiful ball.

    Too expensive to offer 5 year contract over and over. Suddenly you owe 20 million per year on coaches who don’t work for you anymore.

    i don’t think you need to offer 5 year deals to new head coaches. We were foolish to do that with Chauncey (Neil’s last fuck you to this team). Obviously if you’re trying to pry away a big established name coach like Detroit did with Monty you can’t offer a 2 or 3 year deal, but for promising-but-unknown/unproven assistants I think teams should be focused on shorter deals. There are only 30 of these jobs in the world, the teams should have some leverage here.

    just some trivial stats that probably don't mean much
    : the year the Pistons won the championship, Chauncey was 14th on the team in defensive rating, AND 14th in DBPM. On the other hand, he led the team in both offensive rating and offensive BPM. Just maybe, expecting him to be a guru of defense based upon his playing career is looking in the wrong direction

    "Guru of mediocrity" seems to fit better

    This guy is difficult to listen to. I'd rather watch a bad Blazer team than listen to yelling YouTubers.

    this screamy guy usually attacks all the playoff teams. Something provoked him to go after the cellar dwelling Blazers.

    I'll have to take your word for it. His delivery is so poor, I can't say I'll give him a third chance.

    I think this guy is hilarious. To be fair he rips on over half the coaches in the league. He's partially satirical, but his points are valid nonetheless. But I can admit he's not for everyone.

    I know we're tanking, but how many more losses like this before our young players lose what little confidence they have? How are Blazer fans supposed to care at all about the rest of the season? Time to bring out the bags:

    I know what you mean. How can the players enjoy this shit? This is really really bad.

    Oh and Billups has definitely earned a place on the hot seat. He should be fired. NOT saying it's his fault but any organization would fire a guy with his record and historically all time bad teams he is "leading" out there like lambs to the slaughter. He is not helping anything.

    They just got Terry Stott's money off the books last summer after paying him for two years not to coach...they won't do that with Chauncey, they'll let him coach another season and maybe eat one year of his deal unless the team is sold and new management guts the staff. Chauncey as a coach is like Scoot...a talented guy with lots of potential that will take years to put a winning playbook together. I just can't see his old Colorado buddy Joe firing him at all.

    next year is Chauncey’s last guaranteed year, if you can believe it.

    We all know the team is trying to lose the rest of the games so how we're supposed to care is, we want to watch what our young players can do even in losses. The Oregonian said that Shaedon was recalled from the GLeague and will join the team on this road trip and that was on Thursday. That likely means that Shae practices with the team tomorrow and is available to play on Monday. That makes me care. Kris getting more usage makes me care. Seeing if Scoot can have some good games makes me care. Oh and for fuck's sake we're talking about 8 more games.

    The thing I'll be watching most closely is if we can out tank the Hornets and Wizards on Wednesday and Friday, while also rooting for our young guys who are still available to play well in these losses.

    Chauncey's duties are all over the map. He's being asked to win games with the star players, and develop the 10 pack of Cronin's rookies.

    Real injuries and fake injuries, and a pocket full of bad assistant coaches. Some of his assistants had 0 NBA coaching experience when Billups picked them.

    Coach Billups has the Cool Hand Luke persona down, nothing is bad enough to phase Chauncey. That's where his championship intellect is most effective. But it's being used counter-productive, as Billups winning attitude is stretched entirely too thin across a very bad basketball team that Cronin built.

    80% of the "young players" that are playing right now won't be in the league next season, I think we'll get thru it.
