Raptors Higher Ambitions: The Future is Now, and it's Spicy! All Aboard the A'Chui-Chui'wa Train!
What a week! From 3-0 to 3-2 and a fighting chance. We look at games 3-5, the broad strokes and the standouts, who is winning the battle of the coaches, and of course give kudos to the freshly minted ROTY. Yes, we are all up in our feels. Raptors fans may need therapy, but what about the Philly fans booing their own team and leaving before the end of a playoff game? We got thoughts. And no self-respecting podcast would be complete without acknowledging Boston's sweep of the Nets so we indulge in mockery and slander. Higher ambitions indeed. Join us! Canada's first all women podcast covering the Toronto Raptors.
The Annual Paul Jones Episode
It's here! The Annual Paul Jones Episode just in time for the playoffs. Paul has been there with broadcast calls and analysis since the Raptors inaugural season and believe us, he's seen it all. Wanna know how the Raptors stand in their first round matchup with the Sixers? We look at both sides of the ball, where the advantage lies on O and on D. Who's got the edge behind the bench? Big picture--how much pressure is on Philly leadership? Need some slander and defamation? Then you'll love our hard hitting piece on the Lakers. Where does the fault lie? Some may say Rob Pelinka. Some may say too many cooks spoil the broth. Or that the cook was drunk. Or used ingredients that were "off". Hilarity ensues. We end with Toronto Raptors post season awards: Raptors MVP, MIP, 6th Man and a consensus ROTY. Canada's first women led podcast covering your Toronto Raptors, joined by legend and broadcast statesman, the brilliant and funny Paul Jones.
Mismatches, ROTY Race, and deep-dive look at Precious! Raptors basketball with a special guest!
New episode today with very special guest, THE Samson Folk, beloved #RaptorsRepublic writer and podcaster. A run down of the Raptors record over the past two weeks then we hit the ROTY conversation hard. Samson brings his meticulous attention to detail, brilliant analysis of what makes Scottie Barnes great. One of the Raptor Queens throws in a provocative comparison. But WILL Scottie be ROTY? Then a dive into Precious Achiuwa. What is his ceiling? One of the Queens is taking the cautious approach in evaluating, another is all-in on Precious, and Samson brings the eloquent reasoning/astute observations. Of course, King of the North and Court Jester. Then we cast our eye around the league and speculate on some of the biggest disappointments to this point. Thrilled to be joined by this Raptors media legend! Join us here at Canada's first women led podcast covering the Toronto Raptors #wethenorth
