Raptors Weekly Podcast, March 23 – Tears for Salmons


Salmons sorrow, listener questions, DeRozan’s defense and some Metallica.

Andrew (@MarmaladeJacko) Will (@william_lou) join the ‘cast for a packed three-part show.

Part 1

  • Looking back at the OKC game
  • Casey’s options defending Durant – did he use them all?
  • Salmons to blame or simply a scapegoat – how does he recover?
  • Resigning Vasquez a starter?
  • Site poll says re-sign Vasquez, good idea or not?

Part 2

  • Look ahead to the week’s schedule – @ CLE, @ BOS, vs BOS, @ ORL
  • Over/Under on how many turnovers Avery Bradley will force against DeRozan
  • DeRozan’s clutch-time jimmys, defensive game and whether coaching can improve it
  • How other players influence DeRozan

Part 3 – Listener Questions

  • What should the hype song be for pre-game at the ACC?
  • Assuming Lowry and Greivis/De Colo are resigned for next season, the Raptors FA priority should be a PF/C. Who do you think the Raps should realistically go after and sign (besides Patterson)?
  • Who’s more valuable for our future? Ross or Valanciunas?
