We look at what the Raptors are doing in preseason, including trying to figure out what to do with Jordan Hamilton and Landry fields. There’s also Drake.
"The Rapcast" has been a staple of Raptors Republic for years. Currently, RR is running three podcasts:
- Raptors Weekly: Airs Mondays and hosted by Zarar Siddiqi
- The Doctor Is In: Airs Wednesday during the season and hosted by Steve Gennaro
- Talking Raptors: Airs Friday during the season and hosted by Barry Taylor and Nick Reynoldson
Super-quick review of the week and talking to Tim W about his Vancouver training camp experience.
Will, Andrew and Zarar tip-off the preseason podcasting with a rundown of the Sacramento game, and the entire East for good measure.
The pod returns with a bang and by bang I mean Andrew and Tim W., who finally reveals what the W stands for. There’s the Western Conference coaching game, predictions, ESPN power rankings and a whole bag of apologies.
Tim Chisholm checks in for duty and gives his take on FIBA, the Raptors off-season moves, Adam Silver and hypothetical scenarios.
Emmet Ryan from Ball In Europe breaks down all things FIBA with a focus on Jonas Valanciunas and DeMar DeRozan.
The duty is to analyze and over-analyze whatever’s happening in Spain and what’s going through idle minds.
Blessed is any news so we thank DeMar DeRozan and Tim Leiweke, who both took different steps to get the headlines on this weeks’ Rapcast, which sees Andrew, Will and myself usher in the final week of August.
The pod crew will not and can not top. We’re all over the schedule and Jordan Hamilton news like a pack of zombies and decide to sound off on the Raptors all-time, most frustrating starting five.
DeAndre’s exit and DeMar’s handles get some airtime as Wiggins gets unleashed.
