This week on The Doctor is In with Phdsteve, I have called in the boys from the world wide roundtable to talk ball and we have a discussion about all the action in NBA and NCAA while continually tying it back to the Raptors! Joined by my brother Mike (who knows college basketball), Greg Mason (the brain from the south), and Blair Miller from The Fifth Quarter Blog we discuss:
- Michael and Greg’s preview of Marcus Smart on ESPN True Hoop’s bucksketball.com
- The Jimmer to Toronto? Does the prophet strike again?
- Is World Peace possible in smoke city?
- A review of the trade deadline that came and went and what it can tell us about the Raptors, Ujiri, and the plan going forward.
- Tim Chisholm’s piece on transcendent players
- What about a Bosh reunion?
- Kyle Lowry, Kyle Lowry, and more Kyle frickin Lowry
- The development of Tre Rosé, The onus on Jonas and the teams last 7 days that provided 2 wins against Cleveland, a win over Orlando, and a tight loss to the red hot Bulls
- What to expect or hope for in the next 10 days in what may be the toughest part of the remaining schedule
- Some college ball (about 10 mins at the end) where we talk Gators as #1, preview the ACC and SEC, and Steve tries to convince Blair and Mike that UCLA can still win it all!
