Great Podcast

Easy, entertaining listen. Will really knows his stuff and keeps a fair, level head. As an American fan it’s fulfilling to hear another Raptors fan talk honestly about the team. My only critique would be his Asian-bias is a little annoying at times but completely understandable given his obvious pride not only towards everything Raptors but also for the upcoming success of Asian players in the NBA. Keep it up!

Will Lou Told Me To Give This 5 Stars

A great breakdown of every game, what happens, why, and Will understands the long term trajectory of the players and what they’re capable of.

His heart is with the Raptors. Getting an emotional read of what each game means is uplifting. As the biggest American fan of the Raptors, I don’t get to meet a lot of other Raptors fans, so hearing from one and hearing the emotional case for them is a bright spot.
