One of the negatives of being an NBA general manager is the constant questions about trade rumors and during the Portland Trail Blazers media day, general manager Neil Olshey has gotten sick of the trade rumors surrounding forward LaMarcus Aldridge.
The fine folks over at Blazers Edge got the official quote from Neil:
“Oh dear God, would you guys get over it? How many — asked and answered. Thank you [to Chris Haynes], by the way. What else, guys? Show me a media report where LaMarcus Aldridge has said anything other than, ‘I hope the team improves, I’m excited about what we did, I want to get better and I want to win.’ Then we can have a conversation. Until then, let’s move on. OK? Is that possible.
“It’s not breaking news, dude. We covered it in July. Guys, let’s talk about something, someone has got to have a better question than that.”
So, Portland media members, don’t ask any LaMarcus Aldridge trade questions to Neil Olshey….
