The Church of Roy podcast returns to discuss coach Chauncey Billups’ vision for the Trail Blazers in the 2021-22 season. From defense to better shot selection, hosts Brian and Steve discuss how Portland’s current roster aligns with those expectations.
When it comes to defense, Brian and Steve discuss how it is crucial to re-tool Damian Lillard’s workload on offense so he can manage his energy levels on both ends of the floor. In regards to three-point shooting, Steve explains that the Blazers are one of the best offensive teams in the league. Why mess with a good thing?
