Portland Trail Blazers fans rejoice, for the Dave and Dia Podcast is back! It’s the 21st episode for the dynamic duo. Now that they’re old enough to drink (though half of them don’t), they take on some real grown-up topics. How much can be drawn from the Blazers’ two wins and two losses this week? How does Norman Powell compare to Gary Trent, Jr. and how about that buzzer-beater for GTJ the other night? What the heck are the Blazers going to DO with Powell and what sneaky problems does he cause alongside all the ones he solves? Is there any prayer that Rondae Hollis-Jefferson could help the defense? Which players did the Blazers miss out on that Dave and/or Dia would have coveted? And how about that ding-dang diddley-doodley schedule? With things getting hard, what’s a reasonable goal for the rest of the year? And most of all...WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN IN THE OFF-SEASON?

Dave is pretty adamant about that last one. and Dia ain’t happy. She may have pulled out the dreaded “Agree to Disagree” card. And by “disagree”, she may have meant, “Shoot daggers at Dave’s eyeballs.” Tune in to see why.
