    Great Heartbreaks in Raptors History: Game 1 vs. Cleveland in 2018 w/ Freddie Rivas

    Great Heartbreaks in Raptors History: Game 1 vs. Cleveland in 2018 w/ Freddie Rivas

    In Episode 1228, Sean Woodley and Freddie Rivas (Confederacy of Dunks) look back at the Toronto Raptors Game 1 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2018 Eastern Conference Semi Finals. Sean and Freddie look back at the anticipation ahead of that series, and all the reasons why it seemed like the Raptors had to juice to pull off a long-awaited series win against LeBron James, as that Cavs team simply wasn't all that good, and had just barely scraped by the Pacers in the first round in seven games. They also talk about how Game 1 irreparably broke the team, the Game 3 buzzer beater by LeBron to all but end the series, and the fallout from the series loss. Lastly, they ask the question: do the Raptors win the 2019 championship if the Raptors go on to beat the Cavs? The answer might leave you feeling a little less sad about one of the most upsetting games in Raptors history.

    Great Heartbreaks in Raptors History: Game 7 vs. Boston in the Bubble w/ Amit Mann

    Great Heartbreaks in Raptors History: Game 7 vs. Boston in the Bubble w/ Amit Mann

    In Episode 1227, Sean Woodley and Amit Mann (Yahoo! Sports Canada) reflect on the Toronto Raptors' Game 7 loss to the Boston Celtics back in 2020 Disney Bubble. They break down how incredible the 2019-20 team was, and what a shame it was that what seemed like a team of destiny had their year derailed by the COVID lockdown and league shutdown. They also dig into the elements of Game 7 that stand out most in their minds, including Norman Powell's many final-minute miscues, the Jayson Tatum offensive rebound that should never have been, Kyle Lowry fouling out in the last minute, and Fred VanVleet's doomed final possession that lead to a three that came up way short. Lastly, Sean and Ami consider what might have happened had the Raptors won that series. Would they have beaten Jimmy Butler and the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals? And if so, would they have been served up for yet another loss to LeBron James, this time in the NBA Finals? Or would they have avenged the many pre-championship shortcomings against The King?

    Great Heartbreaks in Raptors History: The day DeMar got traded w/ Oren Weisfeld

    Great Heartbreaks in Raptors History: The day DeMar got traded w/ Oren Weisfeld

    In Episode 1226, Sean Woodley by Oren Weisfeld (Complex) to kick off a series of shows set to drop while he's away on vacation with a look at the first of five great heartbreaks in Toronto Raptors history that'll be discussed in the coming weeks: the day DeMar DeRozan was traded for Kawhi Leonard. Oren details while the trade of DeRozan hit him so hard when it first happened, as well as how long it took for him to fully buy into the Leonard trade. Plus, they look back at DeRozan's emotional return to Toronto, and how Oren's philosophy on superstar deals has totally changed in the four-plus years since the trade and how it's affected his thoughts on the potential of the Raptors trading for Kevin Durant at any cost.

    Biggest concerns ahead of the 2022-23 Toronto Raptors season w/ Jamar Hinds

    Biggest concerns ahead of the 2022-23 Toronto Raptors season w/ Jamar Hinds

    In Episode 1225, Sean Woodley is joined by Jamar Hinds (Raptors Republic) to discuss their biggest concerns about the Toronto Raptors heading into the 2022-23 NBA season. Off the top, they chat about the complicated dynamics at play on a team with six core pieces, five of whom are going to be on the search for plenty of offensive touches, and whether the challenge of dispersing those touches in a way that keeps everyone happy could be a risk to the overall vibes of the team. In particular, how might Gary Trent Jr. and OG Anunoby cope with being the fourth and fifth options? And is there a pathway to keeping everyone happy this season, perhaps beginning with Fred VanVleey adapting his role to become more of a table-setter than shot-taker? Next, Sean and Jamar dig into the issue of minutes management. Will Nick Nurse be able to keep Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam and Scottie Barnes from being near the top of the league in workload again with some newfound depth? And will the Raptors approach to the regular season change from the balls-to-the-wall approach they look to 2021-22? Lastly, they discuss the issue of three-point shooting, how much improvement the team can count on, and whether the half court offense as a whole can tick up from its 26th-ranked status last year. If so, will the defense get a little more conservative?

    Power Ranking the Toronto Raptors' training camp roster

    Power Ranking the Toronto Raptors' training camp roster

    In Episode 1224, Sean Woodley goes solo to react to the signing of Juancho Hernangomez aka Bo Cruz to power rank the 20 players the Raptors are now projected to bring to training camp in September. Off the top, Sean ranks the six core players on the team: Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet, Scottie Barnes, OG Anunoby, Precious Achiuwa and Gary Trent Jr. Next, Sean digs into the surefire bench rotation pieces that should round out a very sound nine-man rotation: Chris Boucher, Otto Porter Jr. and Thad Young. Will that trio be the key to Nick Nurse being a little more conservative with the minutes totals for his star players? Next, Sean assesses where the guys on the fringes of the rotation -- Khem Birch, Justin Champagnie, Dalano Banton and Malachi Flynn -- sit in the franchise hierarchy, before rounding out the show with a look at the guys who will likely spend a good chunk of time with Raptors 905 in the G-League, and sizing up the battle for what will likely be one roster spot between four players.

    The three things we're most excited watch during the 2022-23 Toronto Raptors season w/ Freddie Rivas

    The three things we're most excited watch during the 2022-23 Toronto Raptors season w/ Freddie Rivas

    In Episode 1223, Sean Woodley is joined by Freddie Rivas (The Pick-up, Confederacy of Dunks) to discuss three things they're each excited to watch once the 2022-23 Toronto Raptors hit the floor in the fall. Off the top, Freddie digs into why he's so thrilled to watch the Raptors core pieces finally play together for more than just short bursts of time, after the starting five managed to play just 21 games together over the whole of 2021-22. Meanwhile, Sean is excited to watch another season of Scottie Barnes, point blank, period. Next, Freddie digs into the joy of watching the Raptors play gimmicky basketball, as the two discuss the ways in which the Raptors might layer more differing gameplans and play styles into their day-to-day now that the team is a little deeper and loaded with some more complementary skills. Sean, also talks about why he's excited to watch the Raptors go toe-to-toe with the East's heavy hitters, as they've done quite admirably in recent years. Lastly, Freddie details why he's getting Bench Mob-adjacent vibes from this team, while Sean looks at the Raptors performance in crunch time last season, and wonders if it could be a sign of things to come in close games once again in 2022-23.
