Considering this breaking news, Blazersedge has a poll asking what you would do if you were KP. Here is my answer:

1) Play this video

2) Stare into mirror

3) Remember that I'm Kevin Pritchard

4) Play video again, but this time nod more and furrow brow to acknowledge that this song totally sums up what I'm all about

Before this news broke Kevin Pritchard knew that the Vulcans/Larry Miller/Paul Allen were busy been plotting his organizational demise. I guess Ben's question is asking whether having it so blatantly and publicly rubbed in his face (reportedly) is enough to make KP to walk away. My take is that Pritchard is smart enough to understand that this has been going on for a while, and that he has a strategy of his own. This news may or may not change that strategy.

Pritchard could leave now looking like the talented GM that fell victim to meddling ownership and office politics. He could land a better job elsewhere. Meanwhile, the Blazers are making their GM job look less and less desirable. Sure, the owner is super-rich and the team is talented, but would a top GM candidate want to deal with undermining bosses? I wouldn't. If Pritchard has been waiting for the most opportune time to leave, this may be it.

You've been scooped like ice cream!
