How often have you despised an NBA player while at the same time wishing they were a member of the Trail Blazers? I do it all the time and over the years I can remember several players that drove me crazy, yet at the same time I wished they were in Portland because I knew they would be a difference maker.
Now the Trail Blazers have two of those guys. Jusuf Nurkic and Enes Kanter. Portland essentially has two starting centers they can use to give them much needed production in the paint and on the glass.
Most importantly Nurkic and Kanter are an irritant to opponents with their foreign style and carefree approach to the game. In the latest episode of his podcast, Chad explains why this rugged duo is going to give Portland an edge heading into the playoffs.
