Portland Trail Blazers – Although seemingly on an island with this opinion, it’s hard to see the Blazers not making some serious noise in the NBA this season.

It is the same thing I went through last year in Florida, just coming in and getting used to a new system and new guys and trying to fit in accordingly, but I have to be more assertive.”
