A Programming Note and a New Mailbag
Send your questions in now for the next mailbag.
A quick programming note: I'm moving apartments this weekend and will likely be tied up with that for much of the next week, so just a heads-up that it's going to be a slow week for content here. There will be no podcast, and very likely no written content, next week. If something urgent happens or there's breaking news, I'll write on it, but we'll be back to regular posts, both on the site and the podcast, after Labor Day and leading into the start of camp about a month from now. Anyone who's moved knows how time-consuming it is, so bear with me for the next week.
To that end, I did a mailbag last month and got a ton of great questions and had a lot of fun answering them, so I figure this mini-break is a good opportunity to do another one. Same deal as last time: the mailbag will be unlocked and free for all to read, but you have to be a paid subscriber to submit a question. Here's a link to the last one for you to read, just to avoid repeat questions or topics. Send an email to email@example.com from the email address you're signed up for the newsletter under. I'll collect questions over the next week and answer them early in the first week of September, after I'm done with my move.
If you want another reason to sign up for a paid subscription, besides being able to participate in the mailbags, you can catch up on both parts of my extended interview with Nassir Little, which was great, and also serves as a preview of the kind of exclusive content I'll be able to give you all the time once the season starts.
On that note, The Oregonian reported yesterday that the Blazers are going to hold their first week of training camp in Santa Barbara. I plan on being there for at least some, hopefully all of it. Since I depend entirely on paid subscribers to make this thing go, all of my coverage of that first week of camp will be behind the paywall. Not working for a major outlet with a travel budget means I have to fund these kinds of trips myself, which I'm happy to do because my top priority is delivering the best coverage possible. But the more of you sign up, the more of that kind of stuff I'll be able to do, and in turn the better the work you're paying to read will be.
Talk to you all soon.
