Terry Stotts, a coach who understands his players.

I think so, not that I couldn't be wrong. I've seen him taking care of his players, even the last ones on the bench (he never sent a player alone to Idaho, for example, always a pair), and I haven´t read anything negative coming from his players, who seems to like him and to like also his style of play. And he has given fair opportunities to everybody, which was easier for him than for other Blazers coaches in the past, as the Blazers were in development mode and with low expectations (in fact he cut his rotation when he had a shot at the playoffs).

I think he probably deserves some credit for having all our Euros now practising in Portland, instead of spending the summer in their countries, with their families and friends, something I haven´t read has happened before (three Euros coming together for practice), and it´s not easy for them, as they have to leave their people and towns again soon,either for summer league, the Eurochampionship or even both.
