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 prophet), and Blair Miller from The Fifth Quarter Blog we discuss:

  • The Jonas “situation”
  • Why Raptors fans deserve better than Sportsnet Connected
  • The Raps over the last 7 days
  • What this team can do come the playoffs
  • Remembering Colangelo
  • and players from the NCAA whom the Raptors may have an interest in drafting

We get a bit silly this week and the pod is much more like 4 friends talking hoops than 4 reporters covering big stories.  Can you tell we are a bit excited about this team?  We hope you enjoy the pod and all the good vibes in the T-dot as we head back to the playoffs!

    KUDOS for the Sportsnet bashing. Richly deserved.

    I think I’ve followed your podcasts from day one and at first used to laugh at some of the content, (will never forget trying to get Iverson after his Denver days).
    I have really got to hand it to you Steve, you have really turned this gig around. I enjoy the discussion, find your crew take their opinions seriously, but not themselves.
    You summed the Jonas situation up perfectly – there will be no distraction whatsoever.
    As much as we say we don’t want this team or that team, It don’t matter. Any series will be tough, and if we got home, Vegas will go with us.
    I think our draft pick will be moved, be it for that veteran, or packaged to move up in the draft..
