Actually, Lillard and CJ haven't been awful and their future prospects aren't awful either.
The problem with your statement is it lacks real world comprehension. Players are not paid based on their ability relative to MJ and Pippen. The pay of players is based on a complicated CBA, their predicted value in actual free agent bidding, and alternative options teams have to spend their money better.
Edit: Another example of your unawareness is your statement ignores the player the Blazers are paying more for than the free agent market would have paid to the player. Lillard is paid more than his free agent value not because other teams wouldn't also pay it, but because the CBA doesn't allow other teams to pay it. So, was paying Lillard the example of poor management you were searching for? Probably not, because the alternative to paying Lillard more than his free agent market value is most likely worse, at least from the visibility into the probable future we currently have.
Of course this forum is for people, with the benefit of hindsight, to make thoughtless and inaccurate statements about past events. Blazers management makes their decisions based on estimates of future alternatives and their estimates have 10x better precision than your view of the past.
Such a veiled, but supremely condescending and baiting troll post.
Veil: Please explain, I said exactly what I believe openly.
Supremely condescending: I didn't say anything with an aim to be disrespectful. My statement is accurate.
Baiting troll post: I taunted noone. My statement includes no insults and requires/encourages no response. Hopefully, it encourages any response to be well thought out.
My bolded sections of your post show all of the things I mention:
For example, "The problem with your statement is it lacks real world comprehension" is a veiled way of saying Sinobas lacks real world comprehension, which is both insulting, taunting and disrespectful. It also assumes that you DO have real world comprehension...you talking down to someone who in your assumption, doesn't...is exactly what condescension is.
I won't say more about it. You're views here are often contrarian and controversial, and obviously Sinobas didn't take umbrage...so I'll not stick my nose where it doesn't belong.
