This week on The Doctor is In with Phdsteve, a deep look at the 2012-2013 Raptors, as constructed and reconstructed by Bryan Colangelo. We apologizes for being wrong about Amir Johnson and the Kyle Lowry trade! After attending a single game, we’re ready to be a top scout for NBA teams and reveal revelations in the “Xs and Os, Jimmy’s and Joes’s” including why the Raptors offence is easy to scout and needs to be updated to this millennium. There’s no fluff here, but actual in-games example (like those cute little out-of-bound plays). There’s a Kyle Lowry and Jose Calderon comparison and an explanation of which one is/was better for the team.

Some time is devoted on the pluses of Kyle Lowry and Jonas Valanciunas’s game, with a focus on how to keep the latter happy by throwing him a bone once in a while. Finally, we introduce the award-winning segment “Inside Colangelo’s Brain”, and suggest that if Bryan only has one bullet left to fire in his GM gun why not shoot at the biggest target out there and he’s from the Lakers and not named Pau.
