    #26. Jose Calderon on Being Welcomed to Toronto, The International vs American Approach, Outcomes of the Raptors' European Experience

    On this week's episode of the Toronto Raptors official podcast Raps unPublished Season TWO(FIVE), we've got one of the all-time greats at the point guard position in franchise history, Jose Calderon. 

    The 2-time Olympic Silver Medalist spent 8 years with the Raptors and led the 2006-07 team to its first Atlantic Division title and at that time the franchise's best regular season record. He ranks second all-time in assists as well as top-10 in points, steals, games played, minutes, and 3-pointers made.

    Jose played for 8 different teams over a 14-year career in the NBA but found a second home here in Toronto. Numero Ocho was known for his perfection from the free-throw line, his league leading assist-to-turnover ratio, and also introducing the NBA to the 3-point celebration.

    #25. Morris Peterson on Being a Raptor For Life, The New Mr. Raptor, Representing the #24 Well

    #25. Morris Peterson on Being a Raptor For Life, The New Mr. Raptor, Representing the #24 Well

    On this week's edition of Raps unPublished Season TWO(FIVE), the original Mr. Raptor himself, Morris Peterson took the time to join our show. Mo Pete was known for his tenacious defence, circus shots, clutch buckets, and his love and appreciation to be on the court.

    Mo was drafted 21st overall by Toronto which he then made the 2001 NBA All-Rookie 1st Team. All of this coming just after he won an NCAA Championship with his hometown Michigan State Spartans. He spent seven seasons with the Raptors and had career averages of 12.0 ppg, 3.8 rbg, 1.0 spg, and shot 37.1% from deep.

    Mo was the ultimate 3-and-D guy and would've fit right in today's uptempo style. He at one point held the longest consecutive streak at 371 games and also played 4-straight seasons of 82 regular season games from 2002-2006, something you may never see again.

    #24. THE LEGEND OF KOBE FROM A RAPTORS PERSPECTIVE

    #24. THE LEGEND OF KOBE FROM A RAPTORS PERSPECTIVE

    With the tragic news of Kobe Bryant’s passing we brought together a great group to be a part of the conversation this week. Not to mourn, but to celebrate Kobe’s life, we wanted to share our first impressions of him, our perspective into his mentality, his 20-year illustrious career, through a Raptors lens, but most importantly who he was as a person and father. 

    To best represent this conversation we sat down with Alex McKechnie a 6-time NBA Champion (5 with Kobe's Lakers and 2019 with the Raptors), Leo Rautins a 25-year Broadcaster for the Raptors, Bruce Arthur an award-winning NBA writer, and Akil Augustine a co-host of this show and a man who’s recognized deep into Toronto’s basketball culture.

    We hope you enjoy this special episode and take away a moment or story special to us. We as fans and professionals in the NBA family have all channeled the Mamba Mentality one time or another and will continue to do so. There will never be another Kobe Bryant.

    Welcome into episode 2 of season TWO(FIVE), the official Toronto Raptors podcast. Your 2019 Champions 25 years in the making. For this week we got a chance to catch up with someone who defines the term 'fan favourite', Jerome Williams aka JunkYardDog.

    With career averages of 7.9 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 1.3 spg in 180 games with the Raptors, JYD was a key contributor for the iconic 2001 Toronto Raptors playoff run. Not only did he lay it all out on the floor, he brought the energy every night like no other.

    JYD had so much love for Toronto from the jump, the man packed up and drove through a snow storm immediately after he heard he was traded, just to make his first practice with the Raptors.

    #21. Sam Mitchell on What Being A Player's Coach Means to Him, Most Memorable Sam Moments, Looking Back at Our Championship Experiences

    On our very first episode of Season TWO(FIVE) of your Toronto Raptors official podcast, we are pleased to be joined by one of the most successful coaches in Raptors' history. Sam Mitchell.

    Sam laid the ground work for the franchise winning its first ever Atlantic Division title. He was also the first coach of the year winner for the Toronto Raptors organization.

    At the time, he held the best regular season record for this team and still currently has the second most wins in all the 25 years. But what really sets Sam a part from the rest was his ways of connecting with the players he coached.
