Nassir Little on his expanding role in Portland & why this season is more difficult than the bubble

Portland Trail Blazers forward Nassir Little joins the latest episode of Posted Up with Chris Haynes to kick off 2022. The third-year player out of UNC chats with Chris about his ever-expanding role with the franchise and why the 2021-2022 season, with the massive amounts of players coming on and off rosters due to COVID, has been more detrimental to the quality of play than the 2020 postseason played in the bubble.

Nassir also talks about facing adversity through college and the pros, the player he'd like to be compared to the most, his mortifying first time meeting teammate Damian Lillard & an embarrassing moment in a game while being guarded by James Harden in Houston.
