Raptors Weekly Extra Podcast, Dec 9 – Measuring up the Celtics

The Celtics closing out on the Raptors is a story that may have been told prematurely.

The Extra returns, talking Eastern Conference hierarchy with a special guest.

On this week’s episode, host Blake Murphy brings in a guest from Beantown.

  • Michael Pina of, well, just about everywhere
    • The Celtics were considered the primary threat to the Raptors as #2 in the East.
      • Was this premature?
      • How is Al Horford fitting?
      • Boston is third in the East, sure, but the Raptors are in a tier of their own.
      • Who’s the biggest threat to Toronto, if it’s not Boston?
    • Boston is, unfortunately, well equipped to improve.
      • Just how valuable is the pick swap with Brooklyn in a loaded 2017 draft class?
        • They also have three extra 2017 second-rounders, a 2018 first-rounder from Brooklyn, a pair of extra incoming 2019 first-rounders, and two additional future seconds incoming (they have some conditional seconds owed that are only moderately likely to convey).
      • Do the Celtics prospects move the needle enough?
    • How dope is Marcus Smart?
    • I miss Amir Johnson. What about Jared Sullinger?
