    You don't think that Draymond has something to do with that?

    So who's the nearest thing to Draymond Green in the college ranks?

    (I'd also settle for the next Dennis Rodman, or a sane Ron Artest.)

    Ha! You talking about two guys that couldn't even make the playoffs this year?

    Fuck Draymond Green. We don't need him.

    If you put healthy Nurk, healthy Kanter, and healthy Damian Lillard on this team, we're up 2-1, minimum.

    I'd replace Aminu with you.

    No offense.

    Exactly. Mentally soft is the opposite of what the Blazers showed against OKC and Denver.

    that's the thing that matters most

    once the Dame-Aldridge team was broke-up/dismantled, the Blazers became a one-man band. Dame and a supporting cast that all drafted off the guy in front.

    4 years ago, Aminu and Harkless became the starting forwards. 4 years ago it was apparent that Portland really needed a major upgrade at one of those positions. 4 years later, Aminu and Harkless are still the starting forwards

    in the 2016 playoffs, the Warriors beat the Blazers 4-1 in the 2nd round when they focused their defense on stopping Lillard and forced the other Blazers to beat them. The other Blazers failed. 3 years later, the Warriors are doing the same damn thing to Lillard and the other Blazers are failing again. The need for an answer was painfully obvious 3 years ago and the same need is still there

    Stotts has certainly had his failures in schemes and adjustments, but Stotts can't scheme CJ into Paul George or adjust Harkless into Kawhi or replace Aminu with Blake Griffin. There has been a failure of management to address the roster flaws that were clear and apparent in every one of the last 4 seasons...IMO
