Why the Trail Blazers Should Have Gotten Aaron Gordon

The Dave and Dia podcast takes a long look at the value of Portland’s guards while answering plenty of listener questions!

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Portland Trail Blazers podcasts don’t come more jam-packed than Dave and Dia, one of the shining jewels in your NBA podcasting week! Today hosts Dave Deckard and Dia Miller share a super-sized version of the show with listener questions about Portland’s isolation offense, Head Coach Terry Stotts dodging funky media queries, and why Enes Kanter should (or shouldn’t) start. Plus they talk about the record over the last dozen games and what it tells us, Gary Trent Jr.’s barb towards the Blazers, breaking records, and the central importance of CJ McCollum to the offense. Most interestingly of all, our co-hosts dive into the rumor that Anfernee Simons was the sticking point keeping the Trail Blazers and Magic from consummating a trade for Aaron Gordon. You won’t believe Dia’s reaction to that, or how much our intrepid duo get swept up in the topics this week!
