Summer Vibes: Trail Blazers Playlist

New, comments

Join the WHAT Podcast as they discuss the summer jams that will define the Trail Blazers’ offseason.

NBA: Summer League-Portland Trail Blazers at Los Angeles Lakers Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Tara and Cassidy are joined by Kim Waara (@KDubinThisClub) to talk through the latest offseason news and rumors. Are the Celtics in trouble? Is Kyrie Irving headed to the Brooklyn Nets? Is Kawhi Leonard headed for the limelight in LA?

Then we tried to figure out what the Trail Blazer’s summer theme songs should be. Is Damian Lillard under pressure? Is everybody ready to go on the road again with Maurice Harkless, Al Farouq Aminu and Evan Turner? Will the Summer League team run it up or run it back to defend their championship? We dove into Youtube and created a playlist to kick off the summer madness. What would you add to the list?
