I had this planned to be posted earlier, but the Blazers got bounced so fast the timing is a little late. 😝
Today’s #heplayedforthem features current head coach of the Portland Trail Blazers, Terry Stotts. Stotts has been the Blazers coach since 2012, and a professional coach since 1990. But before all that, many might not know this but Stotts actually had a professional career as a player. No, not in the NBA, but overseas from 1980-1990 and was a four year starter in college at the University of Oklahoma too! Stotts was drafted in the 1980 NBA Draft in the 2nd round by the Houston Rockets, but failed to make the team which led him to look in other leagues to play.
Stotts then began his professional career playing in Italy for a few months and then joined the Continental Basketball Association (CBA) for the Montana Golden Nuggets where he played from 1980-83.
Question of the day: after the collapse of the Blazers’ performance in the playoffs, does Terry Stotts deserve to be in the hot seat?
