The Church of Roy podcast is back to discuss how the Trail Blazers fared in this year’s GM survey. Before jumping into the survey, hosts Brian Wilcox and Steve Dewald detailed Portland’s preseason opener. Who looked good? Where are the improvement areas? Are more turnovers on the horizon?

When it comes to individual performances, Brian and Steve are encouraged by Damian Lillard’s crisp and fast start on offense. On the other end of the spectrum, Brian explained that Nassir Little just needs a few more reps in a regular role. It is way too early to panic.

The second half of today’s show dives into the GM survey. Did rival GMs get it right when it comes to Lillard? Does he belong in the MVP conversation? Outside of Lillard, Brian and Steve discussed the placement of coaches Chauncey Billups and Scott Brooks in the survey.
