This week the Citizens break down All-Star weekend, C.J.’s performance in said weekend, and the crazy dunk contest. Then we look back at the first half of the Blazers season, discuss the trade landscape, whether the Blazers over-achieving is good or bad, and the volatile Western Conference. Plus, a trivia quiz about which teams some former All-Stars ended their careers on.

After watching the Timbers win the MLS Cup Final (and a heartfelt congrats), the Citizens look at the Blazers successes and failures in light of our city’s 2nd championship. We break down losses to the Mavs and Clippers and wins over the T-Wolves and Paces, discuss Allen Crabbe’s role moving forward, and put together our all-time Blazer fan favorite team.

Then we review the documentary Winning Time, dish out some fantasy advice, and do some NBA trivia on German-born players.
