Sunday marks a very special day on the Trail Blazers and Rip City calendar.
It's the 26th birthday of one Bosnian Beast, Jusuf Nurkic!
[Listen to the Talkin' Blazers Podcast with hosts NBA Champion Channing Frye and Emmy Award winner Dan Sheldon and special guest Tristan Thompson].
Nurk's return to the court after that gruesome leg injury back in March 2019 has certainly been something special. Nurk and the Blazers fought and clawed their way through eight seeding games and a play-in game vs. the Memphis Grizzlies to earn the No. 8 seed and face the No. 1 seed Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
The Portland Trail Blazers are in the NBA bubble in Orlando, Florida, but Rip City is sending their love to their beast.
