Greetings from North Portland! Now that both Brooke Olzendam, she of Trail Blazers TV, is back from the lake and I, Casey Holdahl of Trailblazers.com, am back from Las Vegas, it seemed like a good time to catch up on the latest doings in Rip City by recording yet another edition of The Blazers Balcony, which you can and should subscribe to below...
This week, Brooke and I consider...
• The Trail Blazers going 3-1 at the 2023 Las Vegas Summer League
• Portland's hopes of repeating as Summer League champs being technically alive (at least as of the time of recording) and what needs to happen in order to advance
• Thoughts on what we saw from Scoot Henderson, Shaedon Sharpe, Jabari Walker, Kris Murray and Duop Reath in Las Vegas
• The official signings of Jerami Grant and Matisse Thybule and why those decisions were made
• Joe Cronin's comments in Las Vegas regarding the situation with Damian Lillard
• Losing in Las Vegas, Brooke's soccer futility, Pickles first pitch and not being a softball person
