    #1619 - Gauging That Win-Now Mentality - Confederacy of Dunks Basketball Podcast - OSBF252

    Welcome to our Off-season Basketball Funhouse! The draft is over and some interesting rumours have started to swirl.
    RAPTORS: The team has drafted a big in Christian Koloko! How we feeling about Masai and Bobby straying from the 6'9" method? There's a rumour going around about a possible Scottie Barnes/Kevin Durant trade. If it brings us into contender status again, should the team go for it?
    NBA: People are loving Hustle. If you had to make an NBA-style movie, what would it be? Who will be the biggest player to move this summer?
    Special guests on this week: Alison Hope from Raptor Queens and John Rallis from George's Deli & B.B.Q.

    #1618 - Guitargate & Rookie Ruminations - Buckets & Tea NBA Show

    Happy Pride! On this week’s edition of Buckets & Tea, Cathryn is joined by good friends of the show Kris Myers and Matt McCready to discuss:


    A Nick Nurse Hottie Highlight too juicy to leave til the end! Cathryn and Kris break down Nick’s special appearance with Prince’s former band The New Power Generation at the Toronto Jazz Festival, including a bombshell about Nick’s guitar playing, a beautiful moment between Kris and Nick, and Cathryn finally meeting Nick in person!

    An eventful NBA Draft, including the Raptors’ selection of Christian Koloko, some under-the-radar Rookie of the Year prospects, and how to improve the boring televised draft coverage.

    
    In our Raptors Homer Moment, we discuss Koloko and undrafted free agent Ron Harper Jr., as well as the potential of last year’s less prominent rookies Justin Champagnie and Dalano Banton. 

    Finally, in a second Nick Nurse Hottie Highlight of the Week, Cathryn submits her proposal for the Nick Nurse Happy/Angry Calendar for charity and provides some inadvertent branded content for Staples.

    #1616 - Drafting Masai's First Love - Confederacy of Dunks Basketball Podcast - S9E251

    It's our season 09 finale! Thanks to all of you who have been listening to us this year, rating us and commenting. We're gonna continue on through the summer with our off-season episodes and season 10 will debut in October!
    RAPTORS: The draft is on Thursday the 23rd. We take a look at the Raptors' past drafts and what made them memorable. Vince Carter used to have a summer charity basketball game at the ACC and it was a scene. Which current Raptor should have a summer event and what would it be?
    NBA: Lots of legacy talk for the Warriors and rightfully so: they won it all! What non-Warrior team or player that didn't win it all has had their legacy effected the most from not winning a ring this year? We've had three finals in a row with completely different teams (Heat vs Lakers, Suns vs Bucks & Celtics vs Warriors). If this pattern continues, which two new teams will be playing in the 2023 NBA Finals?
    Special guests from the Raptors Republic multiverse: The man they call Mac from Runnin' Off The Screen and Cathryn Naiker from Buckets and Tea!

    #1615 - Conclusions and Cooking (with Freddie Rivas and Lauren Mitchell) - Buckets & Tea NBA Show

    #1615 - Conclusions and Cooking (with Freddie Rivas and Lauren Mitchell) - Buckets & Tea NBA Show

    On this week's Buckets & Tea, guests Lauren Mitchell and Freddie Rivas join the podcast to discuss the Golden State Warriors becoming NBA champions yet again! The gang gives their thoughts on the Dubs' latest title run, then address the “is Steph a top 10 player?” question, and why this type of conversation is inherently flawed. We also look at what both Boston and Golden State need to accomplish to end up in the Finals again next year.
    Then, in our Raptors Homer Moment, we look ahead to free agency, specifically pending Raptors FAs Chris Boucher and Thaddeus Young. Will they resign in Toronto? If not, where could they be calling home next season?
    Finally, in our Nick Nurse Hottie Highlight of the Week, we discuss Nick's new shooting accuracy app.

Incredibly Insightful

Can’t tell which was more fun in the 2020 season Samson Folk talking about the Raps or the Raptors staying competitive from ring night to the last minute of the playoffs...but Samson’s insights were always great and pretty worthwhile.
