Raptors Weekly Podcast: Terrence Ross’s Big Night Poses New Questions

Introducing a 100% Raptors-focused podcast to the lineup. We’re talking Terrence Ross, comparisons to DeMar DeRozan, Jonas Valanciunas’s minutes and more.

We’re going to introduce a third podcast into the Raptors Republic lineup. It’ll air on Monday mornings and will be 100% Raptors-focused. To start things off we got Sam and Will, one of whom didn’t actually see the Clipper game (shame on them). We’re running down a few topics, including:

  • Ross’s big night and the grade he received in the Reaction post
  • How have expectations changed for Ross since his rookie year
  • Who has the higher ceiling – DeRozan or Ross?
  • Does Ross’s big night change Casey’s view of him?
  • Did Hedo Turkoglu’s intend to injure?
  • Impact of DeRozan’s injury on the week ahead
  • Amir Johnson’s dip in form – temporary or sign of things to come?
  • Dwane Casey’s no-nonsense approach with Jonas Valanciunas – fair or unfair?
  • A comparison of second-year Jonas with the the second years of some notable bigs in the league
  • All-Star discussion – which of Lowry or DeRozan is more deserving and who is likely to get in
  • Competition for Lowry/DeRozan’s All-Star spot (ahem, one’s from Orlando)
  • Game-by-game preview of the week ahead starting with Brooklyn and ending with Portland
  • Look ahead to the 5-game Western road trip and a further look ahead to what follows that
  • Lots more stuff..
