Earlier this month, during the dregs of the Portland Trail Blazers’ preseason run, we published as series of 9 Questions facing the Blazers as they enter the 2019-20 regular season. In case you missed it, those questions were:

9. How much can Pau Gasol contribute?

8. Who will hit catch-and-shoot threes?

7. Can the centers stay out of foul trouble?

6. Who’s going to defend?

5. Will Zach Collins and Anfernee Simons fit into bigger roles?

4. Do the Blazers have a true starting forward?

3. Are fastbreak points finally on the menu this year?

2. Will the Blazers execute a mid-season trade?

1. When will Jusuf Nurkic return?

As good as the series was, unless you’re a hobbit or a Ringwraith, 9 is a somewhat dissatisfying number. After having seen the Blazers take the floor, we want you to suggest a 10th question that will be key to Portland’s season to round out the group.

Feel free to discuss the other nine as well, of course, but if there is a 10th, what would it be? Share in the comments.
