    Locked On Raps Friendship Mailbag 3.0, Pt. 1 w/ Katie Heindl & Vivek Jacob

    Locked On Raps Friendship Mailbag 3.0, Pt. 1 w/ Katie Heindl & Vivek Jacob

    In Episode 720, Sean, Katie and Vivek team up on the Zoom for another round of mailbag question answering. In part one of two, they address questions about how they'll celebrate the first anniversary of the Raptors winning the title, which Raptors would be well-suited to hosting off-season charity games, and which members of the title team are in line to have their jerseys retired. They also come up with different ways to honour players and moments in franchise history, including a suggestion that the Raptor costume be suspended above the arena whenever the performer inside of it retires.

    Disneyworld, 1-16 Seeding & Group Stages: Good or Bad? w/ Vivek Jacob

    Disneyworld, 1-16 Seeding & Group Stages: Good or Bad? w/ Vivek Jacob

    In Episode 719, Sean and Vivek discuss the growing momentum for an NBA return in a Disneyland bubble, and a pair of playoff formats that have been proposed. First, they try to determine whether or not it's even smart for the league to post up at Disney. Next they debate the pros and cons of seeding the postseason 1 through 16 and doing away with conferences. Lastly, they both poo-poo the most recently reported theoretical format: a 20-team group stage tournament to determine the final eight teams in the bracket.

    What if Jorge Garbajosa Never Got Injured? w/ Vivek Jacob

    What if Jorge Garbajosa Never Got Injured? w/ Vivek Jacob

    In Episode 718, Sean and Vivek Jacob discuss what might have happened had Jorge Garbajosa's rookie season in Toronto not been cut short by a catastrophic knee injury. They ponder whether the Raps might have beaten a top-heavy Nets team in the opening round with Garbo in the lineup, and how a potential second-round series with LeBron's Cavs may have shaken out. Next they imagine how the Bosh-era Raps might have fared over the next few years if Garbo hadn't been forced out of the league by his injury, and wrap up by trying to figure out where the Spanish legend ranked among Chris Bosh teammates during the Colangelo era. It's depressingly high.

    Raptors 905 Assistant Ryan Schmidt on the CEBL, Toronto's 2-ways & more

    Raptors 905 Assistant Ryan Schmidt on the CEBL, Toronto's 2-ways & more

    In Episode 718, Sean is joined by Raptors 905 assistant coach and new head coach of the CEBL's Hamilton Honey Badgers. Sean and Ryan start off by discussing the reasons why Canada's fledgling pro league appealed to him as a place to take the next step in his career and the relationship he has with fellow 905 assistant and Guelph Nighthawks head coach Charles Kissi. Flipping focus to the Raptors, they discuss Ryan's work behind the scenes during the Raptors' run to the 2019 NBA Title, how the connection between the 905 and the big club has helped shape him as a coach, and his thoughts on Raptors two-way players Oshae Brissett and Paul Watson's future trajectories. They close things out with a few rapid fire questions, which reveal how much healthier Ryan is than Sean, to no one's surprise.

    What if the Raptors weren't called The Raptors? Pt. 2 w/ Katie Heindl

    What if the Raptors weren't called The Raptors? Pt. 2 w/ Katie Heindl

    In Episode 716, Sean and Katie continued to discuss the list of 10 rejected names that the expansion Raptors could have been named. Today's names from the original Toronto Star poll include the Towers, Scorpions, T-Rex, Tarantulas and, ugh, Terriers. Would the Towers have been doomed to second-round-and-out playoff runs for eternity? How might the Scorpions moniker have affected Toronto's in-game music choices? Would the T-Rex have been an equally powerful dinosaur name to Raptors? What levels of fright could a Tarantula mascot have reached? What the hell was "Terriers" even doing in this conversation. We answer all those questions and more!

    What if the Raptors weren't called the Raptors? Pt. 1 w/ Katie Heindl

    What if the Raptors weren't called the Raptors? Pt. 1 w/ Katie Heindl

    In Episode 715, Sean and Katie run through the first half of the list of ten names that were up for election back when the Raptors were on the verge of joining the NBA. They run through the rejected Beavers, Bobcats, Dragons, Grizzlies and Hogs monikers and discuss whether or not they would have been acceptable names in place of "Raptors." What would the colour schemes and mascots have looked like? How might the spirit of each turned down option have been imbued into the on-court character of the team? Just how horrible would the Toronto Hogs have been? We answer those questions and more in part one of a two part chat. Names 6 through 10 on Monday!

OMG it’s like red socks fan doing a yankee show

OMG it’s like red socks fan doing a yankee show: Not cool when Locked on has rival fans do the podcast. This is not an independent podcast. It is “Locked on” to the brand decisions. Locked on, why would you do that to fans of you and the teams?
