·         Shain Brenden, a comedian, writer, and Trail Blazer fanatic who loves talking Blazer basketball, but his true aspiration is to one day become a 'celebration move' consultant for high-profile NBA players


·         Dan Marang, a long-time writer and podcaster for SB Nation’s Blazers Edge.
