On this week’s episode of the Blazer’s Edge podcast, Tara Bowen-Biggs and Danny Marang review the week that was in Trail Blazers land. From CJ McCollum’s media blitz that included the dreaded “should they break up the backcourt” question to Kerry Eggers on trading Meyers Leonard— the Blazers should try to make it happen, but can it? We debate LaMarcus Aldridge reaching out to Damian Lillard last year to discuss returning to the Blazers, ask whether Terry Stotts is safe yet, give a review/preview of the Eastern and Western Conference Finals and much more!
