This week on The Doctor is In with Phdsteve, we explore the options for the Raptors in the upcoming draft…oh wait- the team does not own a pick and GM Masai Ujiri has fired all his scouts. Not to worry, I’ve assembled the worldwide roundtable!
This week on The Dr is In with PhDSteve, I begin by looking at the first two games of the NBA finals and offer some thoughts on the highs and lows for the Heat as they seek to repeat against four-time champs the San Antonio Spurs. Then…well…it gets a little bit more intense.
This week on The Doctor is In with Phdsteve, the Raptors have finally introduced their new President of Basketball Operations and GM Massai Ujiri to the Toronto media and fans- and the response is overwhelmingly positive. Fans and media alike are in love with their new GM…but not me.
I think the 2007 Raptor team's biggest problem was a lack of secondary scoring option. We had Bosh (who was neutralized by Mikey freakin' Moore), and everyone else. Was any team scared of Calderon or Parker dropping 25? Definitely not.
This year, we've got 2 legit scorers in Lowry and DeRozan, and even Salmons and Vasquez have the ability to turn a broken play into 2 points. I'm not suggesting this current team are worldbeaters, but their offense isn't as one-dimensional as the 2007 team, without even saying anything about the improved defense.
