Rapcast #163: Goodbye to Bargnani, No Thanks to Tanking


Blake and Zarar fill in for PhD Steve to discuss the Bargnani trade, Rudy Gay rumors, tanking, and more!

PhD Steve tagged out for this edition of the Rapcast, so sexy nurse Blake Murphy did some late-night office hours. Zarar Sidiqi (Arsenalist) took a spot on that weird table with the protective paper, and together they examined a handful of Raptors topics.

Terribly awkward pre-amble aside, here’s what the guys broke down:

  • How you can watch a game with the RR crew and PLAY on the ACC practice court with us.
  • A farewell to Andrea Bargnani and best of luck to him.
  • Was the return for Il Mago enough? How do Knicks fans feel?
  • Was the Stuckey-Charlie for Gay rumor based in reality?
  • Should Gay be on the move?
  • Does Ujiri plan to tank? Reasons for and against, and our preference.
  • Which Raptors have the most and least trade value?
  • Who’s a target at PG2 and PF2?
  • Should Kyle Lowry extension discussions take place?

Make sure to get in on the pre-sale, below-cost tickets, and the ACC scrimmage – you simply can’t get a better ticket, at a better location, for a better game.
