We’re now officially back in the Off-Season Funhouse! We’ll keep filling the basketball void in your heart between now and the next season start.
Raps: Fred watch! Stein and Bontemps report that the Raptors are looking to keep Van Vleet under 80 mill for a max slot. Sound about right? Raptors assistant coach Nate Bjorkgren has been hired as Indiana’s new head coach. What Raptors lessons can he bring to the Pacers? Who knows what next season is going to be like. There’s speculation that we’ll play more games against our division. Which divisional rivals are we stoked about playing more?
NBA: What team should have the busiest off-season? COVID has been long and weird. Who have NBA fans forgotten about? Quickish questions!
We’re taking a couple weeks off for Matt’s wedding, let’s crush one more like Gasol and a bottle of rosé. We talk Gasol’s summer of winning, predict the worst teams this year? How does Nurse run offence without Kawhi? Fun team brandings, Quickish Questions and more.
It’s that time of year again. Sports Illustrated has released their top 100 NBA’ers and we of course have some feelings about how our Raptors have made the list (or didn’t make the list! Shoutout to FVV). What was Masai’s worst move as GM/President? Why won’t Danny Green leave Canada and go home to L.A.?
NBA: Team USA loses to France. Durant is ripping some hot quotes again. We also look at the SI 100 and pick players who should be rated higher and lower, Quickish Questions and more!
We’re still a couple months away from tip-off but we still got lots of off-season talk to get to!
RAPS: Who is this year’s Siakam? Is Freddie a moron for not hating Wiggins? After winning a championship, are we more excited or less excited about next season?
NBA: Boogie, Howard, Gortat, Noah and Mo Speights– We’ve got some thoughts! We rank the East from 1 to 15. Is hustle/intensity quantifiable in anyway, or just weird and anecdotal? Quickish Questions and more fun with special guests Katie Heindl and Ian Gordon!
Recording from Toronto’s up-and-coming West Bend neighbourhood, we’ve got a hot new ep with some great off-season talk!
Raps: Lowry wants to stay long term, do we keep him? Raptors get respect in the schedule– We pick our #1 hot ticket game. Does the fan base have anyone to boo? Assuming Kawhi and Danny get a ton of love, who will fans determine to be public enemy #1?
NBA: What’s going on with all the Canadian players not playing in the FIBA tournament? Top 3 unrestricted free agent next summer? Know Your Bad Teams QUIZ, Quickish Questions and lots more!
RAPS: We rank our summer league players in terms of impact (Boucher, Davis, Hernandez, Lloyd, Miller). TIME IS FLYING! We are a month from the championship and 2 weeks from Kawhi/Danny leaving. What is the current reputation of the franchise? We talk hypothetical trades for the Raptors to go back-to-back!
NBA: Who won the Russ/CP3 trade? Who are the five best duos in the NBA? With Golden State gone, what will be the dominate style of basketball in the NBA? Quickish Questions, blown intros, lots more!
