Default Cho Fired. **Glares at Vulcans**

Rich Cho was fired. The press release just says it wasn't a good fit. Seems to me that the Blazer big wigs don't want a guy who thinks for himself. The scariest part is that firing 2 GMs in such a short amount of time, both of whom did pretty good jobs, will likely scare away good experienced GMs, so we'll probably just land an inexperienced GM who is desperate to just get a GM job and will just do as he is told.

Vulcans may have had some input, but this falls squarely in Paul Allen's lap. It is his team and he both hired and fired Cho.

I hope he sells the team. It is time for Allen to move on to bigger and better flops.

My only fear is landing an owner that wants to move the team. I also like having Allen's money making it so we don't just make moves just for the sake of Allen saving money. Otherwise, I don't agree with many of Allen's basketball decisions.

Even if Allen sells the team, they're not going anywhere. Basketball has such a big following in Portland, a new owner would be crazy to relocate.

That won't matter if the owner is from another state and wants a team in his own town.
