Basketball Prospectus's Kevin Pelton and I are back with a full-length (50 minutes) episode of The Dontonio Wingcast, this time with no musical interruptions. We take up the only topic anyone cares about: What's wrong with the Blazers and what are some possible fixes?
- We react to Dave's excellent piece.
- KP2 looks at pace, Nate McMillan's previous relationships with star like Ray Allen, establishing an offensive pecking order, and the role of role players.
- I discuss some general locker room observations, changes in Brandon Roy's demeanor from last year, the impact of Nic Batum's injury, a first look at Dante Cunningham and a few little tidbits about the 2010 NBA draft.
