    Trail Blazes position competition: Who starts at SF? Who is the backup center?

    Trail Blazes position competition: Who starts at SF? Who is the backup center?

    The Portland Trail Blazers roster is set so it's about that time we start thinking about the competition for playing time and what spots will be up for grabs when training camp opens in September.
    With four starting spots solidified the last big question is who starts at small forward. Is Nassir Little the clear favorite? What about Josh Hart or Gary Payton II?
    Is Justise Winslow the backup power forward or could Trendon Watford earn that spot ahead of the veteran?
    And what does the team do about backup center minutes? They want to play small but can they really get away with that every single night?

Just Getting Better

Not everyone can host a podcast on their own and do it well. It’s a talent. Mike is really good at it and getting better. You can tell he puts in the time. His analysis is keen, honest, and insightful. He’s not a fan boy or cheerleader. One of the better Locked On pods.

Continued Excellence

Mike tells it like it is, even when it’s painful. It is always my very first podcast to listen to daily even though I now subscribe to 2 other Blazer-oriented podcasts as well as some newsy podcasts. Keep up the great work!!
