GM Recap

Well, the long Oregon Live "You Be the GM Poll" parade has come to a close, and as the last pooper-scooper drives by it seems clear that Portland fans feel that the team needs changes at the top, both on the court and off. The prevailing mood is a reflects an old sixties mantra, suitably updated for the modern NBA: "Don't trust anyone over twenty-two." (Or, apparently, anyone who's been with the team for more than three seconds.) Randolph, Miles, Ratliff, and Lenard all got the heave-ho, leaving Skinner as our only battle-scarred veteran. On the management side only Nate survived.

While I might quibble with certain nuances (keep Theo, trade the other two), I agree with the overall message. What's wrong with the team can't be fixed with window dressing. It's still a foundation issue. We're not there yet, and we're not even at the point where we can talk about being there by acquiring a player or two. We're in for one more summer of clean-up. My vote: Just grit your teeth and do it. Hopefully this is the last.
