    In Episode 1184, Sean Woodley is joined by Louis Zatzman (Raptors Republic) to play a game of Sean's creation called Mid-Level Madness, wherein Sean and Louis debate the merits of the Toronto Raptors signing various free agent big men with their $10.3 million MLE this off-season with a little gameified twist.

Could the Miami Heat's Dewayne Dedmon be a sage addition to the front court? Could a reunion with Bismack Biyombo make some sense?

    In Episode 1182, Sean Woodley is joined by Cathryn Naiker (Buckets & Tea) and Freddie Rivas (Confederacy of Dunks) to an ultimate 2021-22 Toronto Raptors trivia smackdown! Join us as Sean puts on his game show host hat and guides Cathryn and Freddie through a three-part quiz on the Toronto Raptors season. First off, Sean runs through some ho-hum trivia questions about the season in a segment called TriSvial Pursuit. See the questions below and play along! Next, Sean runs through random single-game Toronto Raptors stat lines from the 2021-22 as Freddie and Cathryn try to guess the player behind each line in a segment aptly titled: Whose Line Was That Anyway? Lastly, Sean brings back one of his sparsely used podcast bits and forces Freddie and Cathryn to endure a grueling round of That Random Raptors game, as they try to remember which players suited up for the Raptors in their doomed Boxing Day game against the Cavaliers. TriSvial Pursuit Questions: 1. Throughout the season, the Raptors featured a Who Am I game on the in-arena video board where they gave clues to try and hint at who was featured in a blurred out photo. On the Scottie Barnes Who Am I, what did Barnes say was his favourite food?  2. Which team did the Toronto Raptors lose to on opening night by a score of 98-83?  3. Amy Audibert joined the Sportsnet broadcast team as the crew's full-time travelling sideline reporter this season. For which ACC women's basketball program did Amy play four seasons between 2003 and 2007? 4. In which two months did Scottie Barnes win Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month during his Rookie of the Year-winning campaign? 5. During a two-week stretch in late January and early February, the Raptors went 7-1 across eight very important games against the Hornets, Heat, Bulls and Hawks. Which was the only team to beat the Raptors during that stretch?  6. Also during that same eight game stretch came Gary Trent Jr.'s biggest heater of the season. In how many games in a row did he score 30+ points during that stretch? And for a bonus point, which player's franchise record for consecutive 30-point games did he tie?  7. In addition to Thad Young, which player did the Raptors acquire from the Spurs in the Goran Dragic trade, who was waived before ever playing a game with the team?

    What does the ideal Toronto Raptors off-season look like?

    In Episode 1182, Sean Woodley goes solo to tee up the Toronto Raptors off-season and break down what the ideal moves for the team might look like. Off the top, Sean digs into what resources the Raptors actually have to work with going into the summer. They don't have any cap space at all, but they do have the Mid Level Exception to work with, and the Bird Rights of Chris Boucher, Thad Young and Yuta Watanabe to help with bringing back their own pending unrestricted free agents. Will the Raptors have to move on from one of Khem Birch of Malachi Flynn to open up some flexibiility? Next, Sean digs into the question of what exactly the Raptors should prioritize this summer. Should they throw the $10+ million Mid Level at a big man to beef up the front court? Or should they opt to spend their biggest off-season tool to improve their ball-handling and inject a bit of shooting into the mix? Lastly, Sean lays out his ideal opening day depth chart for the Toronto Raptors, and why someone like Thomas Bryant or JaVale McGee would be a nice addition to the centre mix. Sean's Ideal Depth Chart: PG - Scottie Barnes / Delon Wright / Malachi Flynn / Dalano Banton SG - Fred VanVleet / Gary Trent Jr. / Svi Mykhaliuk SF - OG Anunoby / Thad Young / 2nd Rounder  PF - Pascal Siakam / Chris Boucher / Justin Champagnie C - Precious Achiuwa / Thomas Bryant OR Javale McGee  Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Questions answered on today's show include: what will the Raptors' opening day starting five look like with an absence of franchise-altering moves seemingly on the table this summer? What if the Raptors had a version of the Blue Jays home run jacket; what would it be for and who would wear it the most often? Will the Raptors continue to lean into life without a traditional centre? Which free agent and trade targets are the most attractive? (Prepare for plenty of Delon Wright propaganda).

    In Episode 1180, Sean Woodley is joined by Vivek Jacob (Raptors.com) to break down the seasons of the Toronto Raptors deep bench trio of Dalano Banton, Yuta Watanabe and Svi Mykhailiuk. Off the top, they dig into Banton's hot start to the season and the way he petered out as opposing teams started to get the book on him. What does Banton need to do to become more than just a change of pace, niche player? And how could Pascal Siakam's first couple seasons be a bit of a blueprint for Banton as he heads into his sophomore season in 2022-23. Next, Sean and Vivek examine Yuta Watanabe's season, which ended disappointingly after he looked earmarked for a rotation spot up until het got hit with COVID in early January December and never really bounced back. Will he back back next season? Or will is pending UFA status lead to his exit from Toronto? Lastly, Sean and Vivek talk about Svi Mykhhailiuk, who never quite lived up to the promise he showed during the preseason, but is likely to be back on the team next year thanks to his player-option.

    In Episode 1179, Sean Woodley goes solo to continue his player review series with a look at the seasons of Thad Young, Malachi Flynn and Khem Birch with the Toronto Raptors, and examine their futures with the team. Off the top, Sean digs in to Thad, who seems to check all the boxes the Raptors tend to look for in a player, but due to an abbreviated and disjointed run with the team to close the season, never really got to get up to full steam with Toronto. Should the Raptors look to bring him back? Or could he be on his way back to Chicago or somewhere else? Next, Sean digs into Malachi Flynn, who had a couple flashes this season, but leaves a lot to be desired as a backup ball-handler and shot maker. Does he deserve a third crack at breaking into the regular rotation? Or should the Raptors potentially cut their losses and move on? Next, Sean takes a look at Khem Birch's injury-interuppted season.

    In Episode 1178, Sean Woodley goes solo to break down the 2021-22 season that was for Toronto Raptors guard Gary Trent Jr. Off the top, Sean digs into what makes Trent such a delight to watch. He's a true embodiment of the gunner's spirit, the type of guy who makes the 82-game grind a lot more fun to watch, and who can swing an important game with a well-time heater with the best of them. More importantly, he was vital to the Raptors' offense in their best and worst moments all season long. And while he's not an outstanding defensive player, he's found a way to toe the line between aggression in hunting for steals and not fouling to a pretty impressive degree. Next, Sean talks about what needs work as Trent heads into his second off-season with the Raptors, with an emphasis on leaning even further into the stuff he's good at defensively, while trying to do whatever possible to improve as an on-ball defensive player. Plus, is there any more playmaking to tap into for GTJ? And what about a floater game? Lastly, Sean discusses his Stat and Play of the Year for Trent, before officially kicking off the campaign to let Gary cook as the Sixth Man he was born to be in 2022-23.

Off the top, Sean and Samson dig into their biggest positive takeaways from Achiuwa's first season in Toronto. While he may not be the best overall defender on the Raptors just yet, he certainly is capable of the highest highs, and he just might be the guy who unlocks Vision 6'9 as a viable team building model for Masai Ujiri and Bobby Webster. Next, they talk about the areas of Achiuwa's game that need the most work, which are mostly confined to the offensive end of the floor. He siimply needs to learn to set a darn screen!

Off the top, they dig into VanVleet ascension to All-Star status, and the improvements in his mid-range, at-the-rim and overall floor game that helped get him there as the clear best player on the Raptors during the early parts of the season. Next, Sean and Crina discuss the nagging knee and hip injuries that kept Fred from being anywhere close to 100% after the All-Star break, the statistical drop-off he experienced, and whether injuries were fully to blame for his diminished play after the February break. Plus, they dig into how the Raptors to work to prevent similar issues from popping up for VanVleet going into next season. Lastly, Sean and Crina run through their favourite FVV stats and plays of the year before looking ahead to 2022-23. Will VanVleet repeat as an All-Star?

Next, Sean and Katie discuss the elephant in the room with OG, which is his injury history. How much should his missed time affect the way the Raptors front office views him going forward? Does the team need to have contingencies on hand in the event Anunoby continues to miss extended periods of time? Or is being prone to injury only a thing until it isn't?

    In Episode 1174, Sean Woodley is joined by Vivek Jacob (Raptors.com) to review the season that was for Toronto Raptors star forward and possible All-NBA selection Pascal Siakam. Off the top, they dig into their biggest takeaways from Siakam's outstanding year. Siakam found joy once again this season, and carried it throughout the whole season, cementing himself as a clear piece of the Raptors' core alongside Scottie Barnes going forward. They also tackle the question: is Siakam already a better all-time Raptor than Chris Bosh was? Next, Sean and Vivek discuss what if anything Siakam can improve upon going into next season. There weren't many nits to pick with his output in 2021-22, but could he stand to improve as a three-point and long mid-range shooting to make him an even more difficult guy to cover? Absolutely. To close the show, Sean and Vivek share each their Siakam-related Stat of the Year -- both of which were tied to Siakam's immense gravity while on the floor. Plus, they share their favourite Siakam plays of the year, and take a look ahead to what to expect from him in 2022-23, as Scottie Barnes presumably assumes a larger role in year two.

    In Episode 1173, Sean Woodley goes solo to break down the season that was for Toronto Raptors forward Chris Boucher. Off the top, Sean digs into how Boucher transformed his game this season, going from becoming a guy with good stats but without much on-court impact on winning, into a truly positive force on both ends of the floor in a reserve role. Sean talks about how Boucher leaned into offensive rebounding, cutting, and a more fine tuned approach to defense to make him an obvious priority for the Raptors as he hits free agency this summer. Next, Sean digs into Boucher's down year from three-point range, and whether it might be possible for Boucher to tick back up closer to league average next season simply by changing the spots on the floor from which most of his three point attempts come. Lastly, Sean discusses his Stat of the Year for Boucher, and why that number suggests Boucher was overlooked when it came to this year's Sixth Man of the Year conversation.

    Season in Review: Scottie Barnes is on the road to a unique brand of stardom

    In Episode 1172, Sean Woodley goes solo to review the season of Toronto Raptors star rookie Scottie Barnes. Off the top, Sean discusses his biggest positive takeaway from Barnes' Rookie of the Year-winning campaign, which is simply that he's clearly on the road to stardom, and a type of stardom that doesn't really have a close comparable. Don't put Scottie in the corner, because as he showed in his first season, he can wear all sorts of hats and wear them fiercely. Next, Sean takes a look at the three areas Barnes needs the most improvement in, including his on-ball defense, the three-point stroke, and his understanding of the limitations of his teammates, all of whom are decidedly not Scottie Barnes when it comes to seeing plays before they happen. Lastly, Sean's Stat of the Year for Barnes is his shooting percentage from inside 10 feet, which should be replicable going forward considering how unguardable Barnes can be onces he gets into close range. For the Barnes Play of the Year, soon looks back at Barnes' own look back dunk against LeBron James at Scotiabank Arena. Lastly, Sean takes a look at what to expect from Barnes in year two. Can he tick up his usage? Will he be the best player on the Raptors by the end of 2022-23? Sean addresses those questions and more. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Off the top, Sean details why the degree to which Masai preached the importance of patience in the building of the team should be music to fans' ears, considering that it suggests the Raptors will not skip steps as they look to straddle the line between winning and development. Sean then digs into an interesting question asked by Raptors sideline reporter Amy Audibert regarding the non-negotiable traits the Raptors look for in the players they bring in, and how Ujiri's answer suggests the Raptors are very much okay with leaning fully into the novel playing style they deployed this season. Lastly, Sean plays Masai's touching words about the growth of Pascal Siakam and the way he perservered through his low points to regain All-NBA status this season, and talks about why they feel like a confirmation that Siakam is here for the long haul.

    In Episode 1170, Sean Woodley is joined by Vivek Jacob (Raptors.com) to kick off this year's Season In Review series of episodes with a look at the big picture takeaways from a successful 2021-22 Toronto Raptors season. Off the top, they dig into the biggest positive takeaways from the season that was, including the realization that Vision 6'9 seems like a viable team-building model, even if some tinkering probably needs to be done with the roster to ensure the Raptors have more than one note to hit when things matter most. Next, they talk about some of the negative takeaways from the season that should inform the Raptors' off-season decision-making, including the glaring lack of depth in the middle and back parts of the roster and the need for extra shooting in the mix, in addition to Fred VanVleet's health and the ways the Raptors can go about protecting him from breaking down in future seasons. Then to close out the show, Sean and Vivek introduce the Stat of the Year and Play of the Year segments that will run through the Season in Review series. In the Stat of the Year portion, Sean and Vivek talk about the Raptors; record against teams over .500, as well as the curious +0.5 NET Rating for the Raptors most talented and most-used lineup.

    In Episode 1169, Sean Woodley goes solo from Scotiabank Arena following the Toronto Raptors' Game 6 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 6 of their first round NBA playoff series. Off the top, Sean digs into how James Harden's excellent performance forced the Raptors to alter their game plan, and ultimately led to Toronto losing the formula that saw the Raptors take control of the series between Games 3 and 5. The Raptors also badly missed Fred VanVleet and his two-man game with Pascal Siakam, and Sean digs into how the lack of dependable shooting on the floor ultimately made the math untenable for Nick Nurse's squad. Next, Sean runs through his game notes on each of the Raptors regulars who played in Game 6, and examines both their Game 6 efforts as well as their season-long accomplishments.

Plus, is Tyrese Maxey's impact on the series doomed to be limited as long as Fred VanVleet is sidelined and the Raptors are married to playing huge lineups? Lastly, they discuss whether the Sixers might change up their defensive coverages on Pascal Siakam, and what looks might be worth trying to slow down Toronto's offensive hub. Plus, Sean asks Jackson about the level of belief in Doc Rivers to turn the series around on the heels of his defensive comments on Wednesday, as well as whether his outlook on the Sixers upside has been changed throughout the course of this series.

Off the top, Sean digs into whether the two off days will benefit the Raptors, or if the Sixers might stand to gain more of an advantage as it gives Joel Embiid another day to rest his injured thumb. Next, Sean discusses which player or adjustment has most altered the series, with the decision to dare James Harden to score against single coverage probably serving as the biggest move by either coach in the series so far to date. Next, Sean discusses Fred VanVleet, whether he should be rushed back in this series of if he's better preserved for a potential second round date with the Miami Heat -- a team that he figures to have much more success against than he's having in a diminished state against the 76ers. Plus, do the Raptors need to find him a true backup next season in the interest of keeping him fresh into the post-season?

    In Episode 1163, Sean Woodley is joined by Rohan Nadkarni (SI.com, Open Floor) to talk about what we've learned about the Toronto Raptors over the course of the 2021-22 season, and in their three playoff losses to the Philadelphia 76ers. Off the top, Sean picks Rohan's brain on the Raptors' team building concept and whether it seems like a viable way for the Raptors to play going forward. Do they need to find a center for matchups like the one with Joel Embiid? Is that even a problem for the team to really worry about considering where they sit on their win curve right now? And is Precious Achiuwa perhaps the answer to the Raptors center issues staring them directly in the face? Next, they dig into Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet, the heat they've taken for their playoff performances so far against the Sixers, and why they still are very obviously key ingredients to this Raptors team next year and beyond. Lastly, they talk about the hypothetical scenario in which one of Rudy Gobert or Donovan Mitchell becomes available once the Utah Jazz flame out. Could Gobert alter the way the Raptors play defense while also elevating the half court offense? And is Mitchell too porous a defender to really fit the Raptors system?

    In Episode 1162, Sean Woodley goes solo live from Scotiabank Arena moments after the Toronto Raptors lost a heartbreaker to Joel Embiid's Philadelphia 76ers in Game 3 of their first round playoff series. Off the top, Sean digs into the inevitabiltiy that comes with a star player as great as Embiid, the breakdown on the final defensive possession, and how that miscue undercut what was a really excellent defensive performance by the Raptors from start to finish, as they forced 22 turnovers and dared Embiid to beat them with tough shot making -- and he did. Sean also addresses how the offense dried up in the second half as the Sixers rolled out some heavy zone. Next, Sean runs through his notes on OG Anunoby, who was incredible, Precious Achiuwa, who had the game of his life before missing a pair of critical late-game free throws that could have sealed the win, Pascal Siakam, whose excellent defense gave way to a poor offensive showing and 0 second half points, and Fred VanVleet, who looks very, very tired. Please stop being dumb about Pascal Siakam. Please learn from very recent history, my god. Lastly, Sean fields some future-thinking questions from viewers of the live stream, and reflects on how the loss in Game 3, while heartbreaking, is a far cry from some of the other recent heartbreaks, and is actually kind of a necessary blow for a young team to suffer early in its trajectory.

Off the top, Sean digs into how the Raptors' shorthandedness in Game 2 bled into all the other areas of the game, leaving them unable to keep pace for 48 minutes despite a promising start and a torrid first quarter from Fred VanVleet.

Lastly, Sean takes a big picture view of where this team sits with the series headed back to Toronto with health very much not on its side, and compares this year's version of the team to a recent edition of the Toronto Blue Jays in the hopes of offering some perspective amid the bad vibes of a tough start to the series.

Can the Raptors still win this series with him sidelined or diminished by the injury? And how does the thumb injury sustained by Thad Young complicate matters? Lastly, they take a look at some adjustments the Raptors can make going into Game 2. Should OG Anunoby be the primary on Tyrese Maxey?

In addition, they examine whether or not this series could have any outcome that would make them question the Raptors' inventive team-building plan. Next, they field questions about how the playoff rotation could shake out, how the Raptors should use Scottie Barnes on defense to help hide his weaknesses and amplify his strengths. Plus, they talk about Precious Achiuwa's importance to the matchup, how much Nick Nurse will trust his bench, and why the league needs to bring back the Pitbull playoff song. Enjoy Game 1!

    In Episode 1158, Sean Woodley is joined by Devon Givens and Keith Pompey of Locked On Sixers to preview all angles of the Toronto Raptors first round matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers. Off the top, Sean grills Devon and Keith on some of the pivotal questions surrounding Philly, including Matisse Thybulle's lack of availability for the games in Toronto and how it will affect the Sixers, whether Joel Embiid is prepared to negotiate Nick Nurse's hyper-aggressive defense and how that could decide the transition battle, as well as what the Sixers plan to do when it comes to the back up center position. Will Sixers fans get their wish and see Paul Reed fill in when Embiid sits? Or will DeAndre Jordan open up a chance for the Raptors to blitz the Sixers when their star needs a breather. Next, Devon and Keith chat with Sean about Pascal Siakam and his evolution into being the pretty clear second-best player in this series ahead of James Harden, as well as which secondary guys on the Raptors will most dictate their success. Lastly, they run through some key swing players in the series, including Precious Achiuwa, Danny Green, James Harden and the Sixers bench guys before making their official predictions for the series.

    In Episode 1157, Sean Woodley is joined by Vivek Jacob (Raptors.com) to break down the key storylines to watch in the Toront Raptors' series with the Philadelpihia 76ers. Off the top, they talk about James Harden and how his play could be the biggest swing factor in the series. Does he even have a chance of being the second-best player in the series ahead of Pascal Siakam? Or is Siakam clearly in another class right now? If Harden is cooked, this could be a tough series for Philly. Next, they talk about three-point shooting, which seems to hold outsized importance for a Raptors team with a whole lot of variability in that department. In particular, can the bench options of Thad Young, Precious Achiuwa and Chris Boucher connect on their long range shots? And should Raptors fans even feel totally confident in their "knock down" guys like Gary Trent Jr., Fred VanVleet and OG Anunoby? Lastly, they talk about how Achiuwa could be the single most important swing player in the series, why he should close games, and whether the Raptors should reorient their starting five to prevent themselves from bleeding points early in games?

Off the top, they dig into James' recent profile on Scottie Barnes, what made it such a fun piece to report and put together, and what went into the Raptors selection of Barnes back at the 2021 NBA Draft. Next, they assess Barnes' chances of winning Rookie of the Year over Evan Mobley and Cade Cunningham, why it's kind of silly to be worried about who ultimately wins it considering how great this rookie class is, and why Barnes seems to have moved into first place on a lot of people's personal ballots -- including James'! Lastly, Sean and James talk about reasons for optimism regarding the Raptors' chances of upsetting the Sixers, the impact of Matisse Thybulle's absence for the games in Toronto, and how both teams will go about making the other uncomfortable in the series.

Off the top, they dig into Pascal Siakam's unbelievable 37-point, 11-rebound, 12-assist demolition of the Sixers' defense, the evolution of his work as a central offensive engine, why it seems pretty clear that he will not be the reason the Raptors lose a post-season series, and the ethical nature of his buckets. Next, Sean and Yasmin look at the ways in which the Raptors punishes the Sixers, the holes in Philly's armour that could leave them in trouble in the post-season series with the Raptors, and the things they do that should still concern the Raptors, despite their success against the Sixers this season. Lastly, Yasmin and Sean hand out the Dude of the Game award to Precious Achiuwa, who poured in 20 points with five threes on seven attempts -- including the most brazen pull up three you'll ever see.

    In Episode 1145, Sean Woodley is joined by Samson Folk (Raptors Republic) to examine Pascal Siakam's case to make one of the three season-ending All-NBA teams. Off the top, Sean and Samson take a look at the case Siakam has made this year, leading the Toronto Raptors to a surprising, winning season, despite operating under some of the most difficult circumstances of any star player in the NBA. Next, they break down the inflection points in the voting process that could dictate whether there's room for Siakam or not -- could Nikola Jokic or Joel Embiid make the first team as a forward, taking away one of the six spots and making Siakam's odds a little longer? Could Luka Doncic be classified as a forward instead of a guard, creating a similar problem? And what if it comes down to a choice between Pascal Siakam and DeMar DeRozan for the final forward spot? Lastly, operating under the assumption that there's no chicanery with the positions, leaving one forward slot clearly up for grabs, should Siakam get the nod ahead of the likes of Jimmy Butler, Khris Middleton or Brandon Ingram?

    Mailbag: Scottie Barnes, second option? Precious Achiuwa's growth curve & freak mascots w/ Katie Heindl

    Play Episode Listen Later Mar 23, 2022 41:27

    In Episode 1144, Sean Woodley is joined by Katie Heindl (DIME) to answer some mailbag questions on a great many Toronto Raptors-related topics. Off the top, they address Scottie Barnes and whether or not he'll level up into being the Raptors' second option on a nightly basis next season, and why that probably won't come to pass -- at least not in 2022-23. Next, they tackle a question regarding Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, and who it would hurt more to beat in a hypothetical post-season series. Plus, who is the LEAST Canadian Raptors player of all time? And are there any parallels to be drawn between the growth curve of Precious Achiuwa and Pascal Siakam in the early years of his career? Lastly, they talk about the state of the chair situation at Scotiabank Arena, and brainstorm some ways in which the Raptors can infuse King Cake Baby energy into their regular collection of mascots.

    Raptors feel injury absences big time in 113-99 loss to the Bulls

    Play Episode Listen Later Mar 22, 2022 38:43

    In Episode 1143, Sean Woodley goes solo to react to the Toronto Raptors' 113-99 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday night. Off the top, Sean dives into the ways in which they badly missed Gary Trent Jr. and OG Anunoby against the Bulls, from the offensive dry spells that Trent might have had a chance to stop, to the 11/14 night by DeMar DeRozan that might not have looked so easy with OG available. Do the Raptors stand a chance of making any post-season noise without their key guys at full health? Sadly, probably not. Next, Sean sings the praises of Pascal Siakam, who scored an efficient 22 under tough circumstances on Monday, and continues to play at an All-NBA level. But, if you read the tea leaves, it seems Siakam's All-NBA bid might not end with him on one of the three squads at season's end, which would be fine and in no way a slight against his incredible season. Lastly, Sean hands out to Dude of the Game to both Khem Birch and Chris Boucher, before pouring one out for the Raptors-Bulls season series, which never featured both sides at full health.

    Scottie Barnes and Precious Achiuwa star as Raptors split nailbiters with the Lakers and 76ers w/ Vivek Jacob

    In Episode 1142, Sean Woodley is joined by Vivek Jacob (Raptors.com) to chat about the Toronto Raptors 1-1 weekend against the Los Angeles Lakers and the Philadelphia 76ers. Off the top, they chat about how the Raptors have settled into their team identity nicely, and have now pivoted towards looking for avenues towards a higher ceiling via the likes of Scottie Barnes, who went toe to toe with LeBron James on Friday, putting up 31-17-6 and Precious Achiuwa, who was Toronto's defensive anchor against Joel Embiid and James Harden on Sunday. Mistakes are gonna happen, but the future vision of the team is looking all kinds of scary. Next, they focus on the growth of Precious Achiuwa, who had his best game of the season last night against Philly with 21 points and nine boards on 9-of-15 shooting. Has Precious already entrenched himself as a member of the team's core? And does he hold the keys to the Raptors' overall vision working out as a long-term strategy? Lastly, Sean and Vivek discuss the Sixers as a potential playoff matchup, Nick Nurse's proven track record of bothering Joel Embiid, and more before rounding out the show with some Dude of the Game winners. Gary Trent Jr. and Chris Boucher weren't the stars of the weekend, but they were damn helpful! Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Off the top, Sean digs into how the Raptors defense has finally rounded into form and become the clear strength of the team, as was on display in a rough and tumble contest against LA. Next, Sean hands out some flowers in the Box Score Notes segment to Pascal Siakam for his 31-12-3 night on 13/22 shooting, Scottie Barnes for his flourishes of stardom, Khem Birch for some steady center play, and Fred VanVleet for gutting out 21 points while clearly not 100 percent. Lastly, Sean hands out the Dude of the Game to Precious Achiuwa for his game-saving moments and take stock of an extremely tight Eastern Conference playoff race ahead of some big time games coming up next week.

    In Episode 1139, Sean Woodley is joined by Jamar Hinds (Raptors Republic) to talk about what the Toronto Raptors rotation should look like once OG Anunoby returns from injury and heading into the post-season. Off the top they discuss their ideal starting five and why the small ball look with Scottie Barnes serving as the nominal five is still their most desired starting look. Next, they turn their attention to who will populate the first few spots in Nick Nurse's bench rotation, how the team can best manage the overlapping skill sets of Thad Young, Precious Achiuwa and Chris Boucher, and why Malachi Flynn's shooting could be a massive addition to the rotation if he returns from his hamstring injury. Lastly, they talk about Khem Birch, why they don't view him as someone who should be in the regular rotation at full health, but why his skill set could potentially come in handy down the line anyway.

    Is Scottie Barnes the greatest Toronto Raptors rookie of all time? w/ Amit Mann

    Play Episode Listen Later Mar 11, 2022 45:15

    In Episode 1136, Sean Woodley is joined by Amit Mann (Yahoo Sports Canada) to attempt to contextualize Scottie Barnes' incredible rookie season within the history of Raptors rookie performances. Off the top, they talk about what they've both enjoyed most about the Barnes experience, and why Barnes' malleability as a player should keep the Raptors from funneling him down a narrow development track. Next, they look back at some other great rookie seasons in Toronto Raptors history and try to figure out where Barnes slots in on the all-time list. Damon Stoudamire and Vince Carter are the two clear best rookies the team has ever had, but is Barnes a comfortable third? What about Marcus Camby, Chris Bosh, Charlie Villanueva or OG Anunoby? To wrap up, Sean and Amit preview the Raptors' games against the injured by still very dangerous Phoenix Suns and the Nikola Jokic-led Denver Nuggets on Firday and Saturday.
