Portland massively over achieved last year, stayed healthy and beat the crippled clippers in the playoffs. They would be fortunate to replicate that success this year. I’m glad you addressed the defensive deficiencies. Their situation reminds me a bit of the Curry/Ellis pairing that the Warriors brass went away from. While extending CJ is a no brainer, the potential for this team seems capped.
