    Episode 7.165: Matthew G Brown & Cathryn Naiker

    Episode 7.165: Matthew G Brown & Cathryn Naiker

    The Raptors have to lock in some big players like Fred and OG, but the real relief will come with a Masai extension.

    The off-season is the conversation for Raptors fans right now. How concerned should Masai and company be with future money like retaining Van Vleet long term and giving OG an extension? What is the appropriate response to a journalist like Steve Simmons asking Masai a racist question? Should his access be revoked and do you think MLSE will make a statement? The other guys: Boucher, Miller and Rondae. Should the Raptors sign these guys on the cheap or try to upgrade elsewhere?

    NBA: We make predictions on both of the remaining series (Celtics/Heat and Lakers/Nuggets). What is the best Finals storyline? Quickish Questions and more!

    With Cathryn Naiker and Matthew G Brown!

    After a wild and stressful series, the Raptors were eliminated by Boston in seven games. But there’s lots to grateful for this season and lots to look forward to.

    Raptors: What was the single best thing about the 2019/2020 season for the squad? Hinsight! We get a redo. What needed to be different for the Raptors to beat the Celtics? The future! We locked up Coach Nurse and that’s wonderful. With some of our big guys like Van Vleet, Gasol and Ibaka about to enter free agency, what do you want the Raptors to look like next year?

    NBA: The Nuggets shocked the world. Are you shocked and what does this do to Kawhi’s legacy? Bam got a big block and the Western Conference Finals has no shortage of giants. Is this year’s finals Big Ball vs Small Ball? Quickish questions and more!

    Episode 7.163: Yaw Attuah & Sean Woodley

    The Raptors got destroyed in game 05 and are now facing elimination in game 06. Will they win and force a game 07 (and then win that??)

    Raptors: Nurse has endless zones but very limited players he trusts to do them. Why? Kyle took the team back from Pascal this series. Does he need to give it back for us to win? This is a weekly podcast. Come next week, what are we gonna be talking about aka what is the Raptors’ fate against Boston?

    NBA: What non-Raptors/Celtics series is going to 7? Nashing the Nets. How do you feel about coach Steve Nash joining Brooklyn? Quickish Questions and more! Special guests on the pod this week are Yaw Attuah and Sean Woodley!
