Greetings loyal podcast listeners! Long time, no listen. After an extended post-summer league hiatus, things are starting to pick up around Rip City as training camp rapidly approaches, so it seemed time to dust off the mics to record the 52nd edition of The Brief Case, which you can listen/subscribe to below...
While the NBA news is still pretty lean a little less than two weeks before players are required to report for camp, there's just enough out there to fill out the episode, with topics that include...
• The past and future Rip City Remix open workouts
• The trades the Remix have made in the last few weeks
• The Rip City Rally making its way across the state
• Details about the 2023 Fan's Fest, which is scheduled for Sunday, October 8
But the good stuff comes at the end in the form of a little catchup with Trail Blazers guard Shaedon Sharpe, who is already back in town and participating in informal workouts at the team's facility in Tualatin. The 6-6 guard entering his second season out of Kentucky (sort of) discusses his offseason, what skills he's been working on and why, building chemistry on and off the court with Anfernee Simons and Scoot Henderson, the prospect of starting this season, being a part of Nike's "GT Squad" and the play of Team Canada at the FIBA World Cup and his hopes of joining his fellow countrymen at the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
