Day 1 of Trail Blazers training camp sees high energy, sloppy play, bonding and beachfront views

The sounds emanating from the Robertson Gymnasium at the University of California Santa Barbara could only be attributed to that of basketball players in action. Balls bouncing. Shoes squeaking.

US Senator Thinks Portland, Oregon Should Get A WNBA Franchise

Ron Wyden thinks the team would do well. The late David Stern used to give little talks to people about the business of the National Basketball Association. Stern would opine that to be successful there was a formula, a three-legged stool so to speak. An NBA or any major league sports franchise needed government support, across the board corporate backing whether it was as a marketing partner or buying big ticket items such a club seats and luxury boxes as well as a big TV deal. The Women’s National Basketball Association may be adding one to two teams by 2024 and one United States Senator has written a letter to both the NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and WNBA Commissioner Cathy Englebert suggesting that Portland, Oregon would be a suitable city for the WNBA. Senator Ron Wyden wrote, “a WNBA franchise in my hometown of Portland would be a slam dunk-success for the city and the league. It would grow the sport nationally and further deepen the connection between basketball and the city.”

Adding insult to injury after the Timbers draw was a win by Inter Miami later that afternoon that pushed Columbus below the playoff line for the first time in several weeks.
