Greetings and happy Friday to those of you who observe. While there's kinda, sorta been a recent uptick in trade rumors in the last few days, there doesn't seem to be too much new information to report. So rather than rehashing what you've already read on Twitter, that time is better spent listening to what Trail Blazers guard Anfernee Simons had to say about a host of topics on the latest edition of The Brief Case podcast...
With so little new news to discuss, almost the entirety of this, the 53rd edition, is comprised of a discussion with Simons. Topics include...
• How his offseason went and how the offseason changes the longer you're in the league
• Traveling to Croatia for Jusuf Nurkic’s "Game Of Thrones" wedding
• Simons' impressions of Scoot Henderson, Kris Murray and Rayan Rupert after a couple weeks of informal workouts
• Pairing up in the backcourt with Shaedon Sharpe
• What he’s learned about leadership from his vets and how he’s applying those lessons now
• How being mentored by Damian Lillard has prepared him for stepping into a similar role
• His expectations for the team going into the 2023-24 season
