Portland Trail Blazers fans, it’s time for the podcast that makes you feel good even when you feel bad about the Blazers. Dave and Dia go at it again this week, recapping the early games of the season, talking about Jusuf Nurkic and Gary Trent, Jr., holding their breath over Carmelo Anthony, and much more. Why and how is Enes Kanter succeeding (for now)? What’s improved about Robert Covington and Derrick Jones, Jr. over the first few games? How is a coach supposed to respond to questions that coaches can’t respond to, and why can’t they respond to them in the first place?

Admittedly, this was recorded before the Blazers fell to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night, but come on, you don’t think an 80,000-point loss is going to dim Dia’s enthusiasm for the season do you? Nor Dave’s when it comes down to it. Let their lack of general worry, even when being honest about the team, be your balm until the next victory lifts you up again.
