Neil Olshey has brought stability to the Portland Trail Blazers in his year with the organization as general manager.

Olshey has overturned the Blazers' strength and training staff along with the video department and a renovation of their practice facility.

“It’s really important to create the best environment possible, so we can transition to a players-first culture,” Olshey said. “When these guys go out and they talk to guys or they tweet guys or they text guys or whatever, they can say, ‘Nobody takes better care of players than the Portland Trail Blazers. This is the best place I’ve been. They have the best resources, best environment, best building, best home crowd and everybody’s got our back up here.’

"That’s what players want to hear. And your players become your best recruiters. We’re creating the best basketball environment we can create, so this will become a top-tier basketball destination.”
