    Because of Paul Allen and the firing of Kevin Pritchard, I once again feel HopeLESS about the future of the Portland Trail Blazers.

    youre not alone julesam...

    the reason why KP got so popular is because he had connected the team back to the fans, the jail blazers era is gone and we went caring  again on this team. how could you fire a guy silently? it's very un-classy and jail-blazery act! hope the management gets up on its feet because i can no longer stomach this...please......

    Amen brother I be very honest KP is flat out the best GM in the league and he get fired because of a jealous computer geek and his ilk are tired of not getting credit.My question is what did the vulcans do? Thats right nothing but doom the blazers and the fans to mediocrity.

    Don't be surprised about KP's firing.  Just add it to the list of Vulcan decisions:  DreamWorks,  Cable company,  Eastside development,  Comcast contract to deny game coverage to east side of Portland (actually, the second time this has happened under Vulcan management.     "From nothing comes nothing."

    Those guys with Allen and Vulcan don't make very many good decisions but they sure are good at following them up with bad ones!! The future looks scarey ... are we going to go back to the Whittsit days already!! If I hadn't already purchased my season tickets I'd wait until I see what potentially dumb move they make next. It was a laugh in the Oregonian today to suggest that Petrie is a potential candidate...remember Paul and the boys ... you already fired him once!! What will be your stories when KP is quickly picked up by another team and puts together a winning franchise!!

    Pssshhh.

    KP built a neat team from the draft. Besides Camby, and tossing Andre Miller into the rotation, what good players has he TRADED for in the last several years?

    You cannot win a championship from the draft. Allen and Vulcan made the right decision.
    I am a fan of watching Andre Miller rise up above the rim. Which happens. Sometimes.

    Paul Allen dose not think of the Blazers as a business but a toy yes he is a millionaire, He has lost so mush money as the Blazers owner not to machine the bone headed moves he had made. Like letting Brian Grant go and Jermain O neal, know Firing K.P what the hell is going on this just make me sick. :( NOT COOL

    I think it very important to realize that we, as fans, are fortunate to even have this site as a platform with which to vent frustrations.  Much like a driver's license, this platform is a privelege, not a right.  Unlike a license, a privelege that Mr. Paul Allen could take away, if he so desired

    I will ALWAYS love my Blazers !! But even 2 days later, I feel like even if KP had done something wrong, he did more right.  All the work to improve the image of the team over the last 5 years was erased by the way thursday was handled. If mr allen is so powerful with his $, why did agents and shock jocks control the way the end was handled?  It's just not right.

    I also diagree that this site is a priveledge. Just like the fan advisory board, I joined this site because I wanted to see the city love this team again, and for the next generation of Blazer fans to know how great this team is. I feel like it all meant nothing if thats how the vulcans get down. I can't  pretend that is a message I would pass on to the next generation.

    I love the team !!   Thank you KP !!  Go Blazers !!

    I don't care if I moderate. Mr Allen does not cut my check, so from here on out, I'm a fan with an opinion.

    kim i thought you were out of here and leaving me your parking spot.
    Letting go of KP was the right thing to do, because it's what the owner chose to do. He made the right move by getting rid of whitsitt, he did right by promoting KP, so trust him when he decides to take him out and bring in someone new. The way it all went down was sour, but it was KP's people who leaked it right before the draft, and if he was totally unhappy with being told ahead of time he would be not be with the team next season, he could have quit before the draft. But KP and Paul both know you don't leave your prize stallion at the stables right before the derby, you let him run, and put him out to pasture after he's had his run. Put Jerry Sloan out of the equation, and you see how all pieces in all of the associations are moved around when a team's "philosophy" changes. Avery Johnson was let go after coming first in the western conference regular season but failing to make it far in the playoffs multiple years, sometimes questionable decisions have to be made.
    We are no longer a team building from the draft, but one or two pieces away from a championship, so the big man who cuts a lot of other people's checks decided to go in a different way, apart from a popular GM. Allen has bravado

    Maybe kp got fired because the blazers were knocked out in the first round off the playoffs two years in a row with the team he put together and this was not good enough for PA. I think PA wants a championship and 1st round exits don't cut it. Yes injuries injuries injuries but maybe there is something in the oden durant pick. who wanted who and who's saying we should have, could have. Fact is PA probably has lost confidence in KP to get that championship. we keep talking about the jail blazer era and how awesome kp did to bring us back from the edges of the prison system, yet I think I would rather have a team go deep into the playoffs with straight up thugs then see first round exists. I mean how many people care that kobe cheated on his wife or raped a woman in denver as long as he's the black mamba and there's a championship parade. point is, just not being the jail blazers gets kinda boring if your not winning playoff games. I think PA is awesome and should shake up his generals to get them to produce HIS satisfactory results. Kp didn't and now he's out. He is no better than a player who has a sub par performance and needs to be moved. We should stop and ask what is our standard for the GM, It should be a championship or damn close to it. KP failed and he paid for it-I say GOOD.
