What are owners happy with? Expecting a championship every year is unreasonable. Is finishing in the top half of the league by making the playoffs considered good? Making it to the 2nd round? Conference Finals? Making it to the finals once every 10 years?
Where do they draw the line?

At this point, it's likely driven by finances. Blazers bring a lot of goodwill to the community. NBA teams were (at least pre-covid) appreciating assets. Attendance, TV, and merchandise keep everything above water or ideally profitable and Olshey has done his job as far as the suits care.
