In Episode 1176, Sean Woodley is joined by Crina Mustafa (The Parleh) to review the 2021-22 season of Toronto Raptors All-Star point guard Fred VanVleet. 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? Or could a less front-facing role within the offense actually help the Raptors improve, even if it cuts into his All-Star level production? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

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 the Play of the Year, Pascal Siakam and Scottie Barnes shine. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

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 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? All that, plus some thoughts on Kyle Lowry's Miami Heat heading into a likely date with the Sixers in the second round. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

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.

Join hosts Danny Marang and Brandon Sprague live as they take on as many questions as they can in this one-hour live show! Following the New Orleans Pelicans' playoff berth, the Portland Trail Blazers lost a second lottery pick heading into the 2022 NBA Draft and the 2022 offseason “Great Reshaping” of the Blazers roster. Without that additional lottery pick, where do they go? Could a deal still be done for Jerami Grant? Could the Blazers cobble together enough with the 2025 Bucks 1st round pick, a young player and Eric Bledsoe's contract to get Grant or a player at least within range of him in contribution department? Interim GM Joe Cronin has said that they would evaluate the value of their own lottery pick after they know its standing versus what they could use it for on the open market to acquire a player for. Obviously Grant's name has been out there — but what about a player such as OG Anunoby shaking free in Toronto? Would a Top 6-7 lottery pick be enough to convince GM Masai Ujiri to let him go? Toronto has a core of Fred VanVleet, Gary Trent Jr, Scottie Barnes, and Pascal Siakam alongside Anunoby and Precious Achiuwa. However, Toronto has wanted to add traditional size to their roster. There were rumors around the Portland Trail Blazers and Jusuf Nurkic multiple times over the past year. With Anunoby another player represented by Klutch Sports, could there perhaps be an alliance brewing with the mega-agency?

In Episode 1161, Sean Woodley goes solo to break down the Toronto Raptors' 112-97 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 2 of their first round NBA playoff series on Monday night. 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. Next, Sean examines some of the positives from the game, including the turnovers they forced Joel Embiid to commit, the super-efficient scoring of OG Anunoby, the defensive promise displayed by Precious Achiuwa, and the work Chris Boucher did in 30 inspired minutes off the bench. 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.

Also, how Luka Doncic is playing as good as LeBron James and Kevin Durant were at 22 and 23 years old, and how it sucks that injuries and poor roster construction by Dallas have sapped him of 2 deep playoff runs, and a budding rivalry with the Phoenix Suns.

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?
