    Episode 211: Off-Season Funhouse Edition: Kyle Lowry Tribute

    Episode 211: Off-Season Funhouse Edition: Kyle Lowry Tribute

    What can you say about Kyle Lowry and what he means to Toronto? Some would say he first arrived to an impossible situation, playing for the NBA’s only Canadian team, a franchise that no one ever took serious enough to include in potential contender talks.



    That’s fair. We weren’t anywhere close to contention when he arrived. Fans were worn down by betting on Bargnani, watching Chris Bosh consistently marching to the finals each year with Miami, and DeRozan emerging as our heart and soul without any real parts around him. But then Kyle arrived.



    Once this new team started making the playoffs, they never stopped. After some heartbreaking defeats at the hands of players like Paul Pierce and LeBron James and a devastatingly risky DeRozan/Kawhi trade, Kyle brought us a championship. What an amazing nine-year run.



    This episode is dedicated to Kyle Lowry and contains some snippets from his journey here as well as some amazing insight from some of our amazing guests like Alan Shane Lewis, Derick Deonarain, Cathryn Naiker and Katie Heindl!



    Thanks, Kyle. Time for a new era.

    Well, the day has finally come: Kyle Lowry is no longer a Toronto Raptor. What a ride. Thank you, Kyle. Special episode coming up soon dedicated to the GROAT!

    RAPTORS: How are we feeling about Kyle’s exit? When the team was in Tampa, management created a VR Toronto Experience Room for players to get to know this city. What would your VR experience be if you could design one? Scottie Barnes over Suggs? We got some hot draft takes!

    Episode 209: Off-Season Funhouse Edition: Matt McCready & Cathryn Naiker

    After weeks of speculation on what happens or who the Raptors take in the draft, we’re going to find out on Thursday, so let’s speculate a little more!

    Raptors: What is the best possible outcome for this team? We qualified Gary Trent Jr which makes sense, but we keep qualifying Nando just in case he comes back to the NBA. What former Raptor is there that you just can’t let go of, and what type of gesture would you do to make them stay?

    NBA: The off-season has begun. Our old pal, JV, has been traded to the Pelicans. Is there a fit with Zion or is this too many big cooks in the kitchen? Which franchise is the best at drafting? Quickish Questions and more fun with Matt McCready and Cathryn Naiker! Support Confederacy of Dunks Brought to you By: The Sonar Network
