In this edition of the Blazer's Edge Podcast, Fanalysts Jo and Tara discuss the Portland Trail Blazers' first big free agency move: acquiring point guard/shooting guard/small forward/funny man Evan Turner. They chew over what it must be like to go through free agency, plus Jo provides insight from her dinner with LaMarcus Aldridge last year. Tara introduces us to Jake Layman by taking a look at his college years and the dynamic duo wonder if the Blazer's ought to find a player with more fire in his belly to offset all these cool heads. Naturally that devolves into an argument over what's wrong with Dwight Howard (because of course it does) and all bets are off from there.
Fortunately sanity gets restored by special guest Brooke Olzendam of Comcast Sports Northwest, who shares how she got started as a broadcaster and what sporting events are on her bucket list.
