PODCAST: The Oregonian's Bill Oram on the Trail Blazers and His Time Covering the Lakers
The Oregonian's new sports columnist joins the podcast.
I've wanted to get Bill Oram on the podcast since this summer, when The Oregonian hired him as their new sports columnist. Not only because we've been friends and colleagues for years, but because he previously covered the Lakers for nine seasons, first for the Orange County Register and then for The Athletic, with everything that entails. And it's a lot.
We get into all kinds of stuff on this episode. We talk a bit about the current state of the Blazers and get Bill's perspective on the team, but we also talk about his years covering the Lakers, some differences between that organization and this one, his thoughts on Winning Time, being part of the LeBron media machine and the work he's done covering the Timbers and Thorns scandal since coming to Portland. I think you'll enjoy it.
