    This is a no brainer!

    Sources close to Phil, and I mean very close to Phil, tipped me off to the fact that he was definitely interested in the president's job and still is. There was contact made before Olshey had the job and he was supposed to meet with Paul Allen. Once Olshey came in, that never happened. The perception from his people is that he was frozen out. He thought Olshey didn't want the power to shift, obviously, because that's what would happen.

    As far as coaching goes, so they offer him the coaching job. That's not really what he wanted. As I wrote the other day, his people told me he would have come on board as an assistant for Brian Shaw at home games. People scoff at that, like he's too big to coach. He's been through a lot -- I'm not going to try to defend him -- he went through another hip surgery or knee surgery, a replacement, he had a number of them. He had to sit in a special chair the last few years.

    I think he wanted a year off from coaching, maybe never come back and coach. But it did interest him and it still interests him to be the president of the Blazers

    Just because Phil was a great coach does not mean he will be a great President of the Blazers.  How does he really fit the Presidents job?

    If Paul Allen really wants to win he will hire Phil Jackson just to have his knowledge around his ear at all times. You must hire him!

    He has what, 11 rings?  Of course you want him.

    Problem is, Allen+Olshey+Jackson is a recipe for disaster.  Buyers remorse for Olshey right now in the Blazers organization.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
