This week on The Doctor is In with Phdsteve, Raptors Republic’s newest writer Andrew Thompson stops by to chat. In case you haven’t read his piece on Amir Johnson from the weekend- read it NOW! We talk about the roster and the lack of flexibility moving forward when it comes to rebuilding, retooling, or even upgrading! In fact, Andrew’s observes that it would not be that crazy to see Casey, BC, and Andrea Bargnani all here on opening day 2013. He also discusses how the space for improvement for this team is upgrading the second unit and even doles out a few sign’em cheap candidates.
I run down 4 names from college and 2 from the pros as potential “offensive co-ordinators” to run the offense next season if Dwayne Casey is to stick around, and in a crazy game of “would you make this deal” resurrected from last season’s podcasts, we play with some silly ideas to get Rondo out of Boston that involve Kyle Lowry and 7 footer. Vote your thoughts on the proposed deal.
For those of you following college ball, my bracket is still alive! After going 12-4 on day one of the NCAA tourney my teams took quite a hit on day 2, but I still finished the weekend at 31-18 and have 3 of my final four picks (Mich, Mich St. and Miami) alive heading into the Sweet Sixteen. In case you missed it last week, my brother Mike (who know college basketball!) and I previewed the tourney on this podcast.
