    Welcome to our Off-season Basketball Funhouse! The draft is over and some interesting rumours have started to swirl.
    RAPTORS: The team has drafted a big in Christian Koloko! How we feeling about Masai and Bobby straying from the 6'9" method? There's a rumour going around about a possible Scottie Barnes/Kevin Durant trade. If it brings us into contender status again, should the team go for it?
    NBA: People are loving Hustle. If you had to make an NBA-style movie, what would it be? Who will be the biggest player to move this summer?
    Special guests on this week: Alison Hope from Raptor Queens and John Rallis from George's Deli & B.B.Q.

    #1618 - Guitargate & Rookie Ruminations - Buckets & Tea NBA Show

    Happy Pride! On this week’s edition of Buckets & Tea, Cathryn is joined by good friends of the show Kris Myers and Matt McCready to discuss:


    A Nick Nurse Hottie Highlight too juicy to leave til the end! Cathryn and Kris break down Nick’s special appearance with Prince’s former band The New Power Generation at the Toronto Jazz Festival, including a bombshell about Nick’s guitar playing, a beautiful moment between Kris and Nick, and Cathryn finally meeting Nick in person!

    An eventful NBA Draft, including the Raptors’ selection of Christian Koloko, some under-the-radar Rookie of the Year prospects, and how to improve the boring televised draft coverage.

    
    In our Raptors Homer Moment, we discuss Koloko and undrafted free agent Ron Harper Jr., as well as the potential of last year’s less prominent rookies Justin Champagnie and Dalano Banton. 

    Finally, in a second Nick Nurse Hottie Highlight of the Week, Cathryn submits her proposal for the Nick Nurse Happy/Angry Calendar for charity and provides some inadvertent branded content for Staples.

    #1616 - Drafting Masai's First Love - Confederacy of Dunks Basketball Podcast - S9E251

    It's our season 09 finale! Thanks to all of you who have been listening to us this year, rating us and commenting. We're gonna continue on through the summer with our off-season episodes and season 10 will debut in October!
    RAPTORS: The draft is on Thursday the 23rd. We take a look at the Raptors' past drafts and what made them memorable. Vince Carter used to have a summer charity basketball game at the ACC and it was a scene. Which current Raptor should have a summer event and what would it be?
    NBA: Lots of legacy talk for the Warriors and rightfully so: they won it all! What non-Warrior team or player that didn't win it all has had their legacy effected the most from not winning a ring this year? We've had three finals in a row with completely different teams (Heat vs Lakers, Suns vs Bucks & Celtics vs Warriors). If this pattern continues, which two new teams will be playing in the 2023 NBA Finals?
    Special guests from the Raptors Republic multiverse: The man they call Mac from Runnin' Off The Screen and Cathryn Naiker from Buckets and Tea!

Samson Folk

I think Samson does fabulous game analysis. I also think his other shows where he brings in other experts in NBA is really informative. I really hope Samson goes places and gets a Toronto media opportunity at some point. I guess he would have to be willing to leave Mexico🙂

Great Work Samson!

Audio

A lot of your podcast Audio levels are very low at times. I have to crack the volume to be able to hear what is being said. I love the podcast just hate that it’s so quiet.

Quality insight

Long time listener, raps republic has been putting out great content for a long time. Had to give a five star review after hearings Samson’s statement regarding the Raptors pricing out one of the most dedicated home crowds in the league. Great work.
