WHAT About the Bubble?

New, comment

Listen to a special edition of the WHAT Podcast, with Tara and Cassidy talking bubble Blazers, Gary Trent Jr, Damian Lillard, how LeBron might talk himself out of a championship and of course, a Disney Bubble Playlist. We’re getting all set for the NBA Playoffs!

Tara and Cassidy are taking a break from their break to indulge in some blazing hot and bountiful Blazer Bubble talk. But first, an announcement! We are changing our name—W.H.A.T. now stands for We Have A Take because we have takes and we’re looking forward to bringing in even more different voices to talk basketball and Blazers and whatever else comes up.

On this episode, we chat about our playoff-bound Trail Blazers and their incredible and incredibly stressful Bubble Season (sorry, “Seeding games”). Next we talk about NBA Summer Camp/Varsity Summer League highlights. Tara’s got some off-the-wall theories (of course) and (of course) Cassidy has a Round 1 Playoffs Disney Bubble Playlist!

We also ask what can’t Gary Trent Jr. do (yet), pause for some Carmelo Anthony appreciation, and come up with a new idea for post-basketball careers for Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. Finally, W.H.A.T. celebrates some friends of the pod and their amazing recent accomplishments! (Check out new podcasts by @Jannelle12 and @SharonShyBrown and lots of great work from @britrobotista)

It is the NBA like we’ve never seen it before!
