Podcast » Rip City Report, Midway Point Of The 2019-20 Season Edition
Greetings and happy 2020 to all the Rip City Report listeners out there. Before heading back out for yet another extended road trip, your humble podcasting crew of Joe Freeman, he of The Oregonian/OregonLive.com, and I, Casey Holdahl of Trailblazers.com, wanted to get back into the studio to record the first Rip City Report of the new year, which you can listen to on a number of podcast platforms below...
In this, our 186th edition, we discuss where the Trail Blazers stand at the midway point of the 2019-20 season, whether the playoffs are still in play, and if not, how the team might proceed, Jusuf Nurkic's rehabilitation and whether wins and losses factor into his return and our thoughts on why Portland hasn't signed a stop-gap center. We also play a round of "Walton or Oden," Joe talks about his new role at the paper before we finish up by answering listener questions about Rodney Hood, Greg Oden, the NFL playoffs, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum’s frustration with this season, Ed Davis, the bench outfits of Nurkic and Zach Collins and more.
