CBSSports.com Basketball Podcast: Danny Nowell talking Blazers and Tar Heels

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

For today's podcast, I'm joined by Danny Nowell of Portland Roundball Society. Danny is a new member of the Portland society and getting acclimated to following his beloved North Carolina Tar Heels from the opposite coast and figuring out his place within Blazers' basketball.

We discuss everything from Damian Lillard's game to Meyers Leonard's likability, Nicolas Batum's surprising growth, and just how bad the Portland bench is right now. Is Lillard the worst defensive point guard in the league? Does his offense make up for it? Can Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge work on the court together? And is Sasha Pavlovic the worst thing ever?

We also talk to about three rookie Tar Heels. Harrison Barnes' dunk on Nikola Pekovic was spectacular but how is he doing on the season so far? Is there a way to get John Henson more playing time? And will Kendall Marshall have a successful career in the NBA?

All of that and we reminisce over the time Danny once threatened my life during a North Carolina-Duke basketball game.
