The Portland Trail Blazers are a hot topic in the NBA nowadays, largely for rough reasons. The Dave and Dia podcast dives into that this week a little, as hosts Dave Deckard and Dia Miller discuss the latest TrueHoop fracas. The show was recorded before Damian Lillard and Henry Abbott went at it on YouTube, but Dave and Dia still have plenty to say about the life of an athlete, reporters covering them, and Dame’s future. They also react to Derrick Jones, Jr. picking up his contract option for next season, estimations of Gary Trent, Jr. receiving $18-20 million per year, Team USA and their up-and-down Olympics performance, and Simone Biles withdrawing from the Olympics and what it says about the stress on, and perceptions of, high-level athletes.
