Welcome to Portland Trail Blazers Media Day, 2017 edition!

The Blazers bring back the majority of their team from last season, minus Allen Crabbe, plus rookies Zach Collins and Caleb Swanigan. Today, they meet with the media and discuss their hopes for the season. Tomorrow, training camp begins.

Media Day is a full-day event, but the publicly viewable portion begins at 11:30 am. The Blazers will stream coverage (link provided when available), and CSN NW will be airing Media Day from Noon until 3:00 pm. Also, NBA TV is expected to offer some coverage, as they check in with every team today.

OregonLive has an ongoing live thread from Media Day with exclusive pictures. Check it out.

This is your open thread, where you can discuss the ongoing events of Media Day, as well as anything else happening in Blazer-land.
