Raptors are zigzagging from wins to losses through the final stretch of the season and don’t be surprised if they end up in the play-in tourney!

RAPTORS: Nurse and Siakam are talking about a playoff push, trolls are talking lottery odds and O.G.’s wrestling moves. What should fans be talking about?

The Raptors are bottoming out, rumours are flying, players and coaches are fighting! It’s really turning into the nightmare we were all afraid of, but it’s not as bad as it seems.

RAPTORS: With the team bottoming out and free-agent sharks lurking around, we try to bring some calm for panicked Raptor fans.

The Raptors have lost five straight, but hopefully are getting their starters back happy and healthy and ready to go soon!

RAPTORS: The Raptors started 2-8, then went 17-5 before getting COVID. How devastating a blow will this end up being to the season?

Episode 8.189: Antony Hall & Jay Rosales

All-Star weekend is over and the Raptors are ready to get back at it.

RAPTORS: Understanding Norm’s grind. It’s definitely something that’s misunderstood. What is Powell’s future role in the league? Looks like the Raps are interested in Alize Johnson from the 905. Are the Raptors gonna have quiet deadline ideas like this or are they gonna blow the doors off and go for it? To cap off the Raptors’ segment, we each pick a player on the roster and decide which skill they have to improve to make the team more successful.

NBA: Blake Griffin goes to Brooklyn after being bought out by the Pistons. Does this do anything for the Nets? How good are the Phoenix Suns? Does Chris Paul get the credit he deserves for making teams that he plays on so much better?

Quickish Questions and more, with Jay Rosales and Antony Hall!

Episode 8.188: Yaw Attuah & Matt McCready

It took a full year for the Raptors to be shut down by COVID, and that’s with them calling one of America’s COVID hotbeds their home this season.

RAPTORS: The team has fought back to .500 with a 17-17 record and are just aching to play the Pistons, but COVID struck. The Raptors have had to postpone games due to contact tracing and positive tests. How do we feel about what we know about all this? We’re at the halfway mark of the season. Which Raptors are outperforming their contracts?

NBA: All-Star game doesn’t look like it’s gonna be fun. What’s the best version of the game that we can hope for? Weird year, indeed! Is there even a title favourite this year or is it all completely bonkers? Quickish Questions and more!

Special guests joining us: Yaw Attuah and Matt McCready.

Episode 8.187: Cathryn Naiker & Ryan Henry

Raptors might be 16-17 right now, but they have had some huge wins, are in a playoff spot and are heading in the right direction, which means cue the trade rumours!

RAPTORS: Trade Kyle reports never stop. Is there a potential Lowry trade that could possibly work or is this just completely ridiculous? Coach Nurse has been amazing. We talk about what Nurse has done to impress us the most this season besides his wild court-side attire. Yuta getting crowned, Baynes with the self-block… just a couple moments to be added to the Hall of Shame this year. Are there any others?

NBA: All-Star Game. We talk SNUBS in the East and West, Freddie and Matty D talk the Terence Davis charge dismissals off the top, and there might even be a wild Thing reference as well. And as always Quickish Questions!

Guests joining us this week: Cathryn Naiker and Ryan Henry!
