Quick summary after the jump.

  • Thinks Belinelli could very well start if things stay where they are. Triano will figure out if he’s got “it” in training camp.
  • Thinks blogs shouldn’t have the same access as “regular” reporters. Says its slippery slope. I actually referred to bloggers as “riff raff” in there. Stupid.
  • Says the Raptors have an easier road schedule because the trips are short even though there are many. He rides the Raptors charter jet but says even that gets grueling at times.
  • Having a kid makes him tweet at 4AM.
  • Admits that Jones and him had some growing pains as the radio combo but thinks things have gotten better as the years have gone by.
  • Finds himself working much more due to Twitter, Blogs etc when compared to a few years ago.
  • Wouldn’t mind getting into TV broadcasting but politely points out that Jack Amrstrong, Matt Devlin and Leo Rautins have those gigs sealed for a few years.
  • Allen Iverson told him to f**k off once. Andre Reed went off on him once too.
